After resurrecting a broken blog here: http://mywitsend.co.nz/
I'm getting a dialogue box with the following message when opening it and whenever I save a post:

"A username and password are being requested by
http://69.89.20.47:2082. The site says: cPanel"

That link is to my main domain's cPanel. The blog in question is an add-on domain.

Pressing Cancel clears the box and I can carry on normally, but it's clearly not something that potential punters should be greeted with.

I have cleared all cookies and other browser private data. Happens with IE and Firefox, Windows and Linux.

Any ideas as to what I've broken and how I can fix it? My knowledge of server side stuff is VERY limited. I'm working on it.

From Michelle on Tech Talk Hideaway:

"It looks to me like this image is trying to load through your cPanel link:

<img class="alignright" style="float: right; margin-left: 20px;
margin-right: 20px;"
src="http://69.89.20.47:2082/viewer/home%2fmistywin%2fpublic_html%2fblog-images%2fculture/you-and-i.png"
alt="" width="246" height="135" />

It's in this post: http://mywitsend.co.nz/language/8

I asked Michelle how she figured it out. Here's what she said:

"I work tech support for a cpanel host and it's actually a fairly
common issue. I've had clients try to email friends or clients links
to images they were viewing in their cpanel file manager, and if they
copy the wrong link it will ask the person to login. Or they add
them to a webpage and the webpage pops that box up. So when I see
the login box, it's the first thing I look for. I just did a view
source of your page and told it to find :2082 (cPanel port) since
that'd be on the end of the image url based on the popup. And that
image was the only one with the :2082 in it.

I rarely post here -- I'm more of a sit back and learn member. But
I'm happy to have a chance to help!"
