    Hello,

    I have a dedicated cpanel server, and what I want to do is add a site on an IP, so lets say if I go to my web browser, and type in:

    209.59.166.43

    I want that IP to take me to a site (right now it takes me to a page that says no site exists)

    , and

    http://209.59.166.43/documents/doc1.doc to take me to my document, ( so that is doesnt just redirect it)

    how would I go about doing this in whm?

    thanks,
    chris

    Hey, Id like to know the exact same thing - what do I have to do and where should I put files so that I get them accessed just thru IP?

    http://$IP now opens "There is no website configured at this address." and http://$IP/myFolder/myFile opens "404 Not Found".

    This all relates to couple of unused IPs I have Id like to play with and test stuff without buying and attaching domain to them.

    I know this thread is aging now, but I'm wondering the same thing. Anyone any clue?

    Just check the dedicated IP box when creating an account and that IP will show the website.
