I have a VPS hosting and transfer a Joomla site from other vendor.

If i access this site by domain name, everything goes well.
If I access it by IP address, it will redirect to cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi, not index.php.

Does anyone help us on this?

Thank you for your question tengallen!

If your cPanel account for the domain is using the <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/cpanel/how-to-find-your-shared-ip-address-of-your-server-in-cpanel">main server IP address</a> you will get the default apache page. Only domains on cPanel accounts that have a <a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/how-to/purchase-dedicated-ip-address-amp">dedicated IP</a> will show the website. Its difficult to say without knowing the domain and IP you are using.

Best Regards,
James R
