  • Access site before domain is done pointing


    IN cpanel before the domain is pointers users can use IPADDRESS~userlogin to access there front webpage. Is their a way to do this in interworx?

    Long time Cpanel user and only been messing with interworx for about a day now. Also Any usefull tutorials anywhere? WHen I click for the tutorial section here I get a picture of a cat on a laptop.(Which the real funny part the cat looks very similar to my cat Tigger :P. )

    Hi Markmilleru2

    Welcome to IW forums

    To access a domain in IW but the DNS does not point at the server, you would use as follows:

    http://nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn/~unixname

    so lets say your server is 555.555.555.555 and you have a siteworx account with a unix name of mydomain, then it would be:

    http://555.555.555.555/~mydomain

    The above may fail if you have htaccess rules requiring correct domain etc... or you have siteworx account set to only use https (but with no DNS, you would a paif SSL as Let's encrypt would not allow a SSL Cert until the DNS records points at your server), or say you had a word press site set to only use domain name etc...

    I am sorry, there should be tutorials, but probably best to:

    review/search forums for anything specific (such as BFD)
    Look at http://docs.interworx.com/ which I think is where the tutorial is anyway now

    If you have any questions, please either post on forum (there are many friendly users who have excellent knowledge on here), ask your license provider or email Interworx directly

    Lastly, I would advise to use Centos 7 as it has the latest Apache version and most likely will have TLSv1.3 available when it is released from OpenSSL

    Many thanks

      Hi,
      I am trying to change from cPanel as well, did you find a solution to preview?
      I tried the http://ip/~username but getting error about the requested url /~username was not found on this server.
      Kind regards,
      Nico

        Hi nico

        Apologies for a late reply

        If you ssh into server and cd /home then ls -ld you should see a full list of Unix names

        If you confirm the Unix name and test using from the list, it should work

        Please remember it may not format correctly or even show, if as an you have htaccess rules for domain name or say in a Wordpress site, it is set to use FQDN

        Many thanks

        John
