Hi

I need help?

I have just moved from a shared reseller hosting package to a BVPS server with WHM & cPanel WHM 11.2.0 cPanel 11.11.0-R16983 which my host installed, So I am new to (root) WHM so the help I need is:

How do I add a user so I can use cPanel?

All my host will give me is

cPanel login - http://***********.com:2082
user - any other user (NOT ROOT)
pass - password which you setup for above user.

Do you mean create a cpanel account for your domain?

whm > account functions > create a new acccount

The rest should be self explanatory such as domain name, password, etc.

Its perfectly fine to do that but since you want to create a cpanel account, the zone would need to be deleted and then use the create function I previously mentioned.

Since this will be a fresh new record, you will also need to add A entrys for your name servers again since they will not exist if they were in the original record that you need to delete.
