How do I configure initial WHM settings?
The WHM Initial Setup wizard is intuitive and fairly easy to use.
To access WHM, use either the Control Panel - WHM link from the Customer Portal, or the direct URL.
Once you have connected to the Virtual Server you will be on the WHM Login screen. Log in as follows:
There are six steps to the WHM Initial Setup:
Step 1 - Agreement
After the WHM Initial Setup is complete, you will be able to make selections from the Feature Showcase, and then continue to WHM.
Step 1 - Agreement
When you log in to WHM for the first time, you will need to accept the End User License Agreement (EULA). If you do not accept the EULA you will not be able to use the cPanel/WHM software.
Step 2 - Setup Networking
Once you have entered your Contact Information and reviewed the other options, click Save & Go to Step 3.
Step 3 - Setup IP Addresses
If you purchased additional public IP addresses as part of your Virtual Server provisioning process, you can add them here. If you do not need to add any new IP addresses, click on Skip This Step and Use Default Settings to continue.
Step 4 - Nameservers
Leave this section at the defaults - if additional configuration is needed it can be done from WHM directly. Click on Save & Go to Step 5 to continue.
Step 5 - Services
Leave this section at the defaults, and make any configuration changes in WHM directly. Click on Skip This Step and Use Default Settings to continue.
Step 6 - Set Up Quotas
Leave this at the default, and click on Finish Setup Wizard.
After you finish the Setup Wizard, you will be on the Feature Showcase. Here you can enable highlighted features available for WHM and cPanel. Make sure to carefully read the available documentation for each feature you wish to enable.
If you have selected any Features, click on Save Settings, otherwise click on Exit to WHM. This completes the WHM Initial Setup and takes you to the WHM main screen.
