    Hey guys, just got a vps from vpslink. And installed cpanel. Everything seemed to go well all the way through the install. I am trying to get used to setting everything up and making sure that everything works correct before I start moving any of my domains over to the VPS problem is. I cant get to files i upload. I get this / And have made index pages in the root of public_html and tried going straight to the index'es / or / Nothing seems to work. Do I HAVE to move at least 1 domain over before I can access it from the web? Also for resolver ip's, I pinged the domain name servers at vpslink which is and and used those corresponding IP's . Am i completely wrong here? Im logging in as root and is what the hostname is set to. But im at a loss. Any have any incite for me. Thanks in advance.

    Hello :)

    You will need to transfer or create an account on the cPanel server before web pages will be accessible. Even then, you will only be able to access the files directly over the IP address if it's a dedicated IP address assigned to the account, or if you disable Apache Mod_Userdir protection. Ideally, you should access the domain name directly after it's been pointed to the new server, or modify the hosts file on your own machine to point the DNS to the new server locally.

    You should use the default resolvers provided by your data center or hosting provider, as opposed to their name servers. You may need to contact them to determine which resolvers to use if that information is not readily available.

    Thank you.
