I just setup WHM and cpanel successfully but I have no clue where or how to put the files on my main server I want to add my site to this page:

http://76.74.159.91 - click that (it just says I have it installed)

But I do not see the option to upload files or I do not know how to create a cpanel account for my root domain/IP (I woudl really need a cpanel for my root domain).

Any help would be awesome thanks!!

PS: I do not want to switch over my domain name until my site is up.

After you create your domain in whm, then ftp into the username/password you created and upload the files in to the public_html folder

Then you will be able to test it at http://your-ip/~username/

So I just create an account like I would normally do?

Ok I will try it... but there is no way to get it to go straight to http://76.74.159.91 ?

You can create a cPanel account so you can login to the cPanel interface by going to the Account Functions section of WHM and then clicking on Create a New Account.

You can then create an account on that screen by answering the questions presented.

Then you can go to http://IP:2082 (where IP represents the IP address or hostname of your server) to login to the cPanel interface.

If you have ssh, you may be looking for the Document ROOT:

/usr/local/apache/htdocs/

If you don't have SSH, then nevermind.:rolleyes:

Which is wrong if you're using cPanel...

the document root will be different for each account depending on where you store user accounts... usually /home/useraccount/public_html
