This question was answered by @jesin:

It is related to mod_userdir do you need this module? If not it can be disabled:

https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/1150Docs/Apache+mod_userdir+Tweak

Change the hostname of cPanel to use a subdomain, something like cp.server.com and also ensure this subdomain's IP (A record) to point to the Droplet.

https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/ALD/Change+Hostname

Then set the primary domain of your account to server.com. WHM > Modify an Account

Now your website will be accessible at server.com
cPanel will be accessible at cp.server.com:2082 (or 2083 for SSL)
WHM will be accessible at cp.server.com:2086 (or 2087 for SSL)
