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

I have a new installation of WHM and cPanel and I'm adding domains into WHM, but when I try access via cpanel or whm subdomains, I got redirected to cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi.

I've already tried into 3 different computers to check if is cache but the issue persists. I've checked the proxy domains but is enabled by default. What could be wrong?

Are the accounts linked to the correct IPs? Do the accounts show up in the apache configurations correctly? –  arjarj Jun 20 '12 at 6:33
@arjarj It was all right, seems to be a cPanel misconfiguration. Executing the commands below worked properly. Thanks. –  Danniel Magno Jun 20 '12 at 11:50

I've contacted the cPanel Support and they told me to execute the following commands:

# /scripts/rebuildhttpdconf
# /scripts/restartsrv_httpd

After that, the subdomains worked properly.

Thanks everybody.

I get a permission denied. Did you have root access? –  Magpie Dec 16 '13 at 21:19
@Magpie Yes. All things related to server administration must be done by root. –  Danniel Magno Dec 17 '13 at 2:07
