I've successfully installed CPanel on my CentOS VPS via SSH. Now I can see

https://~my website ip~:2087/

It prompts me a username and password with the title: Web Host Manager now I have no idea what the default username and password is... I did not set up any accounts, I just installed the CPanel and left it to be installed and I certainly have not seen any kind of username and password set up.

How will I be able to set up a username and password for my CPanel so I can log in to it.

The CPanel came from this website: http://layer1.cpanel.net/latest.

Thanks.

I'm sorry, please repeat? Username is root and password is rootpassword? Well neither of all of them works. –  MacMac Apr 4 '11 at 14:57

Use as USERNAME: "root" and use YOUR ROOTPASSWORD as a PASSWORD, or try using YOUR USERNAME as a USERNAME and your USERPASSWORD as a PASSWORD, i don't know that program in specific but most control panel programs use that as default –  HTDutchy Apr 4 '11 at 15:44
