    Hey everyone, I recently moved dedicated servers, I'm using the latest versions of cPanel and WHM on both servers, and I still have access to both.

    Anyway, I used the transfer function to transfer all of the account over, which finished successfully after about 3 hours, but now it seems there is a problem. I have 1 IP on the server at the moment, which is a main shared IP (, but it's put the IP of one of the sites as, all of the rest it's put as, which of course is a local IP. When I try to change the IPs of the other sites to it just says:
    Setting up for ip change..... Done
    [an error occurred while processing this directive]Sorry, is in use by another domain name and is not a shared ip.
    The problem is, it IS a shared IP, it's just not recognising the fact that it is.

    Also, how do I set which account is shown by default on a shared IP when people just browse to the IP?

    Any help is appreciated :)

    Assume you have confirmed that WHM correctly shows the main/virtual IP under Server Setup? Another way to confirm that would be (asssuming Linux) in etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/"device usually eth0" what IP is bound to that interface.
    As to the second question, check the httpd.conf file. The domain listed as the first virtual host with the shared IP will be the default seen when using the IP address.
