    I have a new server running cPanel 11.24.5-R37946 - WHM 11.24.2 - X 3.9 on FREEBSD 7.2 i386 standard.

    That box was put together in our lab and originaly had the ip Now this box is in our live environnement with the external ip 204.x.x.x. This ip is all over the cpanel configuration but still when I go and create a site using create account, it will put the new site on the original ip. See an example below, this is the output from the create account script.

    I know you said you checked all settings, but what IP do you have in WHM -> Server Configuration -> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup for "Main Shared Virtual Host IP" ?
