    Hi everyone, I have a server setup up only for emails, but now we want to use it for a website as well. I have uploaded all the files but I keep getting an error when trying to check the site before I switch the DNS on the domain from the old server. I have found answers to the 404 error but none that can help me pin point my issue;

    I'm trying the following, but nothing works:
    1.1.1.1/~username
    1.1.1.1/username
    1.1.1.1/index.php

    The error:
    404 Not Found
    The server can not find the requested page:

    Am I just missing a setting on WHM? The error says Port 80

    Regards

    In WHM left menu find Apache mod_userdir Tweak and check your settings here.

    My god, I swear you guys are soooo helpful! I truly wish I had your knowledge level when it came to whm/cpanel so that I could give something back to the community. But just for the record, I do volunteer my web & graphic design services with two non-profit organizations, and it feels good when they tell me how I helped them solve graphic/web related problems.

    Have a great day!!

    Regards,
