OKay, so I have a question. Usually its my business partner that sets up the servers (WHM etc). However hes not around, and I have some questions.

We got a new server, got WHM installed... Now we have about 6 IPs to use and setup on the server. However, Im not sure if I set it up correctly. Is there a way to tell if the IPs are setup right? or if the setup is correct ?

Im not sure where to place the other IPs (extra IPs), or if I setup the hostname / nameserver IPs correctly.

Any help with that?

On another note, I guess I am doing something wrong, as everytime I go back into WHM, its as if its resetting itself over.

When I log back in, its starts as Initial Setup Step 1..

You can use the "ifconfig" command to see the IP addresses are added properly. Does restarting cPanel still result in the looping initial setup wizard?

Thank you.

I've done a couple restarts.. So I'll have to wait till later to see if the restarts worked, as it only "resets" itself after an hour or so..

Yes, that output looks normal. Please feel free to open a support ticket if you continue to see the initial setup wizard after logging in via Web Host Manager.

Thank you.

As I logged in today, yes, it did reset itself yet again... To the initial setup wizard.



(EDIT)
I have submitted a ticket... ticket #4930199

To update, this issue was addressed by ensuring the /etc/.whostmgrft exists and the browser cache was cleared. The customer confirmed the issue no longer occurs.

Thank you.
