    Hello,

    I'm trying to assign a dedicated IP to an account on my cPanel/WHM installation and I get the default cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi showed when I try to access the website...

    When I ping the domain on both my server and at home, I get to good IP (suppose it's 1.1.1.1).

    I take a look into /var/cpanel/userdata/website.com (website.com is an example) to see if the documentroot is correctly set and also the IP. Everything is fine.

    After, I take a look into the /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf to see if everything was correctly configured and it's also good.

    I check if the DNS zone was correctly updated and it is.

    I have used WHM to assign the new IP so it should work (I have done this before and everything was fine...).

    I use the latest stable version of cPanel/WHM.

    When I try to access the link website.com/lol.php, it look into /usr/local/apache/htdocs/ not in /home/website/public_html ...

    Also, the SSL work, but not the non-ssl.

    Hello :)

    Please try clearing the browser and DNS cache on your computer. It's likely just a cache issue on your local machine that's resulting in website resolving to the previous IP address.

    Thank you.
