    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.

    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
