Enter your server IP to verify server have valid license. If your license is fine, login in to server as user root and run

Some times firewall can block access to cpanel server, in that case, you should check firewall rules. This you will be able to find by checking /var/log/messages.

If you have CSF firewall, run

csf -x

For iptables, run

iptables -F
