The requested URL /cpanel was not found on this server

If you run cPanel servers, then you may at some point experience this issue.

The problem is when you attempt to visit “” and you get the following message or similar:

The requested URL /cpanel was not found on this server.

The requested URL /whm was not found on this server.

To fix this, you must add the following to your httpd.conf (/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf):

ErrorDocument 400 /400.shtml
ErrorDocument 401 /401.shtml
ErrorDocument 403 /403.shtml
ErrorDocument 404 /404.shtml
ErrorDocument 500 /500.shtml

Alias /interchange/ /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/interchange/share/interchange/
Alias /interchange-5/ /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/interchange/share/interchange-5/

Add this anywhere in the httpd.conf, outside of any <VirtualHost> tags.

Restart apache (service httpd restart), and bingo!
