There are certain cases where we need multiple shared IP’s in a server. In this article, I would like to discuss the steps to setup multiple shared IP address in a cPanel server. Please note that this cannot be done from WHM interface. To setup this, you should SSH to your server as root.
1. Create a folder /var/cpanel/mainips/ and add a file with a name root with the IP addresses that you would like to make as shared IP’s.
[[email protected] ~]# mkdir /var/cpanel/mainips/
[[email protected] ~]# vi /var/cpanel/mainips/root
Save the file and you are done.
xx.xx.xx.xx and yy.yy.yy.yy should be replaced by the IP address that you want to make as shared IP addresses.
