    Hi.

    How can I access my host account pre-nameserver change?

    Say for example that I register my domain www.ejemplo.com in WHT with username ejem88

    This domain is assigned the IP: 123.456.789

    In Direct Admin I would access my account like this: http://123.456.789/~ejem88

    This doesn't work on Cpanel.

    Thanks for your help :eek:

    1. Login to WHM
    2. Click "Tweak Security"
    3. Click "Configure" under the "mod_userdir Tweak" paragraph.
    4. Either: a) Uncheck the "Enable mod_userdir Protection."; or b) Find the username "ejem88" in the list and tick the "Exclude Protection" box next to it.
    5. Save settings and go to http://123.4.56.78/~ejem88

    And if you're running Windows, you can add the relevant domain name and IP address of the new server to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts - this will cause Windows to resolve the relevant domain name to the IP you specify, instead of performing a DNS lookup. The format of the file is explained within itself.

    I find this useful during such interim periods.

    oh sorry. I should have stated that I'm not admin. I have a reseller account on Cpanel - So I guess the admin have mod_userdir disabled.

    Just googled to see if this can be activated by .htaccess - nothing came up. :eek:

    Go on, have a guess
    Yes, you would have to ask your hosting provider to enable access through mod_userdir for you.
