I've dug around the web without much luck in finding a solution. Hopefully I can get some insight here.
I have a VPS with a dedicated IP address running WHM. Let's say I have two cPanel accounts in this example.
ip.address/~user1 has an addon domain example.com which has both email and web localhost. We want to keep the email here but point the web to a second cPanel.
ip.address/~user2 has their website but will not have their email here as it will stay at user1.
There doesn't seem to be a straightforward approach to this so I am looking for any feedback.
After some more research on different approaches I want to clarify my specific situation.
Per the example above, ip.address/~user1 has their example.com as an addon and both web and email are localhost. The destination for the web host is at ip.address/~user2, however it is a WordPress MU site setup as subdirectories. So the destination for the example.com new website, on the same VPS but in a different cPanel, looks like multisite.com/user1-domain
Would it be possible to create a CNAME record for example.com web host so web traffic at that address, example.com, sees the MU site? I hope that makes sense.
