    We're currently testing cPanel & WHM.
    We first wanted to use public IP '' but after some internal discussions we decided to use another public IP ''.
    The Internal IP stays the same.

    We have changed "The IP address (only one address) that will be used for setting up shared IP virtual hosts." to the new public IP in WHM Basic Config.

    If we check "Show or Delete Current IP Addresses", the Public IP is "" (the old one). If we change that IP to the new one "" and click on 'Validate', it's changed back to the old one.

    Is this some licensing issue or do we need to change some other configuration in WHM?

    Hello :)

    You will not be able to change the IP address of the server in Web Host Manager. There is a thread that explains this here:

    Changing Main IP Address

    Thank you.
