I know, I know...silly but I'm still confused. I need to set up my own personal website settings, the settings I will use on my rootdomain. Now, if my WHM control panel was also setup on that very same root domain, (ie) "rootdomain.com:2086" how can I access my emails, mailing lists, and other settings for the domain itself "rootdomain.com"? The type of access normally gotten via cPanel where you control your own personal site features.
For example, I made my website in FrontPage for my domain "rootdomain.com which is also the WHM domain "rootdomain.com" but I can't turn frontpage on for "rootdomain.com" nor can I make emails because technically, there is no personal cPanel for "rootdomain.com" and therefore I can't access it except via rootdomain.com:2086. So how can I setup my own personal settings, emails, autoresponders, fp extens, etc" settings for "rootdomain.com"?
I've tried to access via domain.com/cpanel but it doesn't let me in. It doesn't post any errors, it just keeps asking for my username and password (correctly entered). I tried my root username and pass but it doesn't work for :2082. I also tried my account non-root username and pass and it doesn't work either. Is there something extra I was supposed to setup in the WHM to get access to that cPanel, or was WHM supposed to set this up by itself automatically?
Is the account I'm supposed to set up the hostname domain.com itself? Am I understanding corrctly that if my WHM hostname is "mydomain.com" then from the WHM, I will setup an account for "mydomain.com itself, just as if I were setting up any other domain?
