Droplet IP keeps pointing to Cpanel Default Web Page

Posted March 25, 2020 988 views

I have backed up and imported databased and move website files over to Digital Ocean server but droplet IP keeps redirecting to /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi, how can I remove this and make my website index page visible?

Server is on CentOS using Cpanel & WHM.

Also when installing Cpanel/WHM it asked me for 2 name servers which I put as and did I do this correctly or do I need to put it as digital ocean’s default ones?

Hello, digitalize

Is the issue persisting if you access cPanel/WHM on the following ports - 2083 and 2087?

https://IPaddr:2083 and https://IPaddr:2083

Another option is to access your website using a domain name instead if accessing it using the droplet’s IP address.

You can also try to clear your browser’s cache or use an alternative browser as well.

As long as you’re not trying to run any DNS service on the droplet itself (use it as DNS cluster) the nameservers you’ve chosen will not cause an issue.

Hope that this helps!
