    I have a blog hosted on a shared hosting server, running CPanel. Is there a way to make the blog viewable through the IP address of the server?

    For example http://x.x.x.x/~loginname/ ?

    Right now, if I view through the IP address, it simply throws the WordPress 404 page not found page.

    Thanks.

    If the WordPress Address (URL) and Blog Address (URL) are both set to the IP then it ought to work. Backup your database before poking at that.

    If the Apache2 VirtualServer is defaulting to some other error page, then that’s not a WordPress issue and it wont work.
