We have one server running WHM/CPanel with quite a few (~60) low traffic sites we can't be bothered to put on a proper hosting platform.
CPanel is accessible on every domain at http://example.com/cpanel, however this redirects to http://servers-fqdn:2083/. I've worked on other CPanel servers where the /cpanel link redirects to http://example.com:2083/ so each CPanel is running under its own domain but I couldn't seem to find any documentation on how to get this to work.
Two reasons this would be useful;
- I frequently access the CPanel sites, but because they all redirect to the servers main hostname (and CPanel uses HTTP authentication) I can only save one username/password combination, having it on different domains would let me save each username/password individually.
- I would look better when our actual users log on, since the servers primary (FQDN) is reeaaallllly long
So yeah this is more for convenience than anything practical but still.
Lots of sites with CPanel but when accessing it
http://example1.com/cpanel redirects to http://server-fqdn:2083/ http://example2.com/cpanel redirects to http://server-fqdn:2083/ [etc]
http://example1.com/cpanel redirects to http://example1.com:2083/ http://example2.com/cpanel redirects to http://example2.com:2083/
Full root access to the server (I'm a real sysadmin, but users like CPanel), WHM version WHM 11.30.5, RedHat Enterprise Linux 5.5
