    Hi Guys,

    This is a strange one, the main shared IP on one of my servers is pointing to a website rather than to my /usr/local/apache/htdocs folder.

    When I change IP of the website showing, another one pops in its place!

    Any idea how to get http://myip/ to go to the /usr/local/apache/htdocs folder?

    I am having this SAME problem.

    I just put the question to my host.

    Hopefully a technician will answer soon...

    You used to could edit the httpd.conf and move the sites around in the order of which on loaded on the shared IP. It may not be the best solution but we just made a dummy domain with 5 megs of space and called the domain 000.com so it would be first in the httpd.conf, then uploaded a server is okay page (basically copied the cPanel is working page and it now loads if you go to the shared IP by ip number.
