    I wish there were some kind of setup guide for everything I need to do to set up a small hosting company. I have read through all the documentation but I fear that I have guessed to much at some of the steps.

    I am kind of in a chicken and egg scenario. I have installed cPanel on my dedicated server and I would like to set up my company's website (which is a joomla website with a template and WHMCS). Setting up the Joomla site is no problem on a shared or dedicated server, but I am not sure how to go about doing it with WHM/cPanel.

    I think I did it correctly, but there is no way to really know if things are set up correctly. Since this is my company's website, I created a package with all unlimited everything. Then in WHM, I created a new account which seems to be created (/http://www.doory.com/).

    I am not sure if this is correct, but I set up 2 nameservers for doory (ns1.doory.com and ns2.doory.com) and they seem to be propigated.

    Now, when I go to /https://www.doory.com:2083/ and log in, I get a screen that allows me to view videos. but when I click on the view video tutorials link, I get a access denied: security token failure page (/https://www.doory.com:2083/cpsess8330687861/frontend/x3/tutorial.html)

    But once I am logged in to the cPanel for that user, I don't know how I would install Joomla here. There are no auto installers or anything that makes it simple for me to install joomla. So i suspect that I would install joomla that traditional way by creating the mysql database and user and ftp-ing the joomla files to the server. The problem is that I am unable to ftp to anything other than the anonymous folder and I don't have write privlidages.

    If this is going to be this difficult for me, I can't imagine how difficult it is going to be for my customers. So I am a little frustrated but I know cPanel is a great product and I will get there. Just need some kick in the pants and a better starting guide.

    Any suggestions?

    It appears you got your Joomla going ok, good to see.
    /http://www.intodns.com/doory.com

    You have this setting enabled in WHM > Tweak Settings:
    Require security tokens for all interfaces.
