    Hi, I can login via xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx./whm
    I need to access to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx./cpanel

    Do I have to create a user for this?

    If yes, is this the path to it:
    acc functions > create a new account.

    If yes, what should be the domain in this case (I need to access to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/cpanel)

    Thanks in advance!

    It appears you are asking how to log in to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx when xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the name of your server and the name of your domain.

    If this is true, you need to set up an account for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx as a domain. You should have a separate or different password for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx as root (whm) and xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx as domain (cpanel).

    Hope this is helpful.

    Thanks for your response.

    Yes. my server name and the domain are the same.

    does it mean that I should create a domain:
    www.domain.com/cpanel ?

    I'm confused.

    Thanks :)

    The hostname/servername should be xx.yourdomainname.com replacing xx with whatever you like. You would then create the account for yourdomain.com whereas afterwards you can access it via yourdomain.com/cpanel.
