    Hello :)

    You should install the application within an account. For instance, setup a test account if necessary, and then install WordPress in a subdirectory or the public_html directory of this test account. You can then view the website over an IP address using Apache Mod_Userdir or by manually editing the hosts file on your personal computer.

    Thank you.

    As i mention I want to create a folder for development website so that I can access it using ip address 182.xx.xx.xx/wordpress
    also how to customize my ip address default page (cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi )
    if it is possible through cpanel then it will be the best

    That type of setup is not supported. Instead, I recommend following the instructions from my previous post:

    To clarify, by test account, I mean a separate cPanel account.

    Thank you.

    You could use a domain name that does not exist if necessary (e.g. testing-domain.test). A redirect is not necessary. Simply modify the hosts file on your own computer with an entry such as:

    IP-Address-Here testing-domain.test

    You can find documentation on the hosts file at:

    hosts (file) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Thank you.
