Why am I unable to login to my cPanel after Installation?

Art. Nr: 149  |  Rating: 4/5 from 495 votes  |  Last Updated: Wed, May 16, 2012

If you are currently unable to login to your cPanel/WHM after installation, this most likely due to having your firewall enabled. Please follow the below step-by-step directions on ways to resolve this issue.

  • Login to your cPanel Virtual/Dedicated server via SSH
  • Next, please run the following commands within Linux:

    iptables -F &&
    service iptables stop &&
    chkconfig iptables off

Once you have run the aforementioned commands, please try to access your WHM (Web Host Manager) installation again. Should this not work, please consult with your network engineer for other possible problems.

If you have any further questions pertaining to your cPanel license, please feel free to get in contact with the LicenseCube support team for additional assistance.

cPanel has applied now firewall rules on linux server so you better check the iptables rules are not blocking the access.

You can try if cpanel is not started and listening only on the SSL port : 2087
