    First of all I'm a newbie.

    I've created two accounts sharing the same ip.

    Then I try the url http://domain.com/~account and I get a 404 error, I think this is becouse the account has been created but is still empty.

    The main domain does not work yet (nameservers are not updated), so I try to access via FTP using the Ip as host name. I only can see 3 folders in the server mail, public_html, public_ftp (there must be a lot more but don't know where they are).

    The question is: how can I upload files to each account?

    There must be a folder created for each account created, but I don't know how to access them.

    Thanks in advance.

    If there is trouble, it will find me
    Your files go in public_html. If you put an index.html in public_html you won't get the 404 error anymore.

    Ok, but I want to upload different files in each account. How can I access each account to upload different files?

    For every account you have a different login & password.

    Use these logins in your FTP program.

    Thanks I could ftp all files, but now, how can I access them? I thought that 'mydomain.com/account' or 'mydomain.com/~account' would work but they don't

    You can use the IP address you gave the accounts to access through FTP..

    also when accessing via browser your accounts before their domain name resolves you can use
    http://yourdomain.com/~username

    username = the username you gave that account when you created it inside WHM.

    Make sure you DO NOT have mod_userdir Tweak checked inside the Tweak Security settings in WHM. If you enable this tweak it will give you an 404 error page when you try to access via http://yourdomain.com/~username

    Regards,

    Ok, I'm using my Ip to do that:

    http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/~account

    but then I get a DNS error in browser

    I'm not sure why this happens becouse if I type mi ip in browser (without account name) theres no DNS error, I get a valid html page with this message 'Cpanel ... There is no website configured at this address'.

    You posted:
    When your main domain does resolve you shouldn't have these DNS issues any more.

    a little late....but you need a '/' at the end of the address

    http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/~username/
