I'm trying to configure a server using WHM and cpanel in a vps. WHM came pre-configured, and I had to add a new cpanel account. Even though I had to enter the domain for the cpanel account, I still haven't configured the new domain, so I'm accessing the server using it's IP.
I copied my site files to *~/public_html/site* but when I try to access *http://server_ip/site* in the browser, I get error 404. I also noticed that index.html is taken from /usr/local/apache/htdocs/ so I tried to copy my folder there. Then, the webserver returns error 500, but anyway I believe that copying the content to this folder is not the real solution.
The folder and most of the files are with 755 permission.
The logs in /var/log/httpd/ are empty. The only logs with info are the ones on /usr/local/apache/logs/ but I couldn't see anything useful there.
I'm almost a total newbie with cpanel, so bear in mind that my problem might have a trivial solution.
The error 500 is, according to the logs:
[Mon Jul 11 09:42:42 2011] [error] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] SoftException in Application.cpp:422: Mismatch between target UID (99) and UID (48) of file "/usr/local/apache/htdocs/site/index.php" [Mon Jul 11 09:42:42 2011] [error] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] Premature end of script headers: index.php [Mon Jul 11 09:42:42 2011] [error] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] File does not exist: /usr/local/apache/htdocs/site/sys_cpanel, referer: http://126.96.36.199/site/
