Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So, I just bought my first VPS and chose the OS to be Centos + cPanel, using the VPS Control Panel.

The trouble is that I can't figure out the URL to get to cPanel afterwards.

I tried http://server.name:2086 and http://server.name/cpanel but with no luck. Any ideas?

PS: http://server.name correctly serves the Apache 2 Test Page.

Ask your provider, this is probably a FAQ. –  David Mackintosh Jan 6 '11 at 5:18

SSH into the machine, and take a look at the 'netstat -anp' output. WHM is probably running on a non-standard port.

If you can't connect even with the right port, contact your provider.

Domain name should point to the server correct IP. But it would be better using the link like below: - for WHM access
