    hey, im using cpanel on a vps installed on a server at work. the ip address given to the server is 87.194.100.3
    but when i installed the vps (centos), my routers dhcp assigned the vps the ip 192.168.1.65
    thats the ip that comes up in cpanel, its messing up the server. dns isnt working properly, domains come up with the server cpanel page
    does anyone know who i can set the server to use the main ip address? 87.194.100.3
    anyone? i cant get this to work

    Login to WHM as root, and you can change the IP address there.

    when i add the IP address:
    87.194.100.3 with the subnet 255.255.255.0 and set it as the default system ip and change all accounts over too it, when i access them from my pc i get the default cpanel page.
    i can only access them correctly via shh using lynx on the actual server. :s
    please help guys :)

    When I go to that address, I see an email login page, not the default cpanel page.

    ???
