install cpanel in centos 6.5 64 bit

  • Posted May 7, 2014

Hi, i am attempting to install cpanel to later migrate my existing server from a shared hosting to digital ocean, but i followed all this instructions: And the issue is when i attemp to go to https://(siteip):2087 it redirect me to the existing cpanel domain, how i can change this to use the new install in digital ocean from the ip to be able to migrate the existing server?

I created the droplet with same hostname, but what to do now?

Hello, mzuker

cPanel/WHM is also available as one-click install app in our marketplace. You can quickly spin up a cPanel droplet and you’ll be ready to build a new website or migrate any of your existing sites over to the new droplet.

As mentioned cPanel is a third party application managed through our Marketplace. New installations of cPanel come with a 15 day free trial. For further use beyond that point a valid license will need to be purchased directly through cPanel.

Please refer to below link for further details:

Hope this helps! Regards, Alex

I am thinking the reason you could not access it is because of cPanel’s configuration. There is a setting that forwards it to the SSL hostname when you try to access WHM/cPanel.

Keep in mind that WHM and cPanel are two different things. WHM is used for the server side while cPanel is for the user side.

Still not working <br>And i already set hostname in SSH

Most likely, this is due to you having already set the hostname to to the domain that is currently pointing at you old server. Try running: <br> <br><pre> <br>hostname your.ip.address <br></pre> <br> <br>That should allow you to access it for now. Just remember to reset that once you’ve re-pointed the DNS to the new server.
