How to Add IP addresses through shell

Adding IP addresses through shell if the server has Two Ethernet Cards and not able to do it through WHM

# cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/

# cp ifcfg-eth1 ifcfg-eth1:1

# vi ifcfg-eth1:1

Now, you can add the IP, Change device to DEVICE=eth1 and IP address

# ifup ifcfg-eth1:1

Setting up 10_Mbps using mii-tools command

# mii-tool -F 10baseT-FD

# vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

# ETHTOOL_OPTS=”autoneg off speed 10 duplex full”

If you are not able to add them through WHM, then you need to verify the file /etc/wwwacct.conf  and check ETHDEV and mention the ethernet drive. The reason behind mentioning ethernet drive is to set a IP as default for setting up for new accounts.
