My organization currently has an account with where we use cPanel to manage a handful of LAMP apps.

We wanted to move our server and apps in house. So I we purchased cPanel, and I have just finished setup of the server and the cPanel install.

So now what?

I thought I would see the cPanel view/screens that I see over at greengeeks, but instead I don't see any of that. Things like FTP, and MySQL ... ect.

Looks like when I login to whm, I am one level above what I see in my greengeeks view. How do I set that up?

Better yet, is there a migration path to easily move stuff from greengeeks to my own server?

Webhost Manager (or WHM) is the view for the, well, web host's manager, or in cPanel terms, the Reseller. Within WHM resellers (including root) create new cPanel accounts under Account Functions > Create a New Account. It's these accounts which access cPanel. cPanel is the UI for the admin of a single web account, WHM is the UI for the admin of the entire server

WebHost Manager is located at https://your-server:2087/

cPanel is located at https://your-server:2083/

Once you create accounts under Account Functions > Create a New Account, you can view the list of accounts under Account Functions > List Accounts. Each account has a green CP icon next to it:

CP Icon

Clicking those icons will take you to the cPanel UI for that account.
