Hi there,

In addition to what has been mentioned about ports 2087 and 2086, did you use this Marketplace image here:

If so, keep in mind that when you create a Droplet using that image, cPanel & WHM will automatically begin installation in the background.

The installation process takes about 10-15 minutes.

You cannot log in to WHM until the installation process is complete.

Hope that this helps!

You usually can access WHM by going to port 2087. Basically, you need to load - XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:2086 or XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:2087, where XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX is your IP address.

On port 2086, you reach non SSL WHM and on port 2087, you reach SSL WHM.
