    Change of default page in Cpanel

    Is there any function in cpanel that allows you to set your own default page instead of the typical index,default.htm/html?

    You mean, when an account is created you want your own index.html put in their /public_html/ directory?

    You could try changing it globally under the Apache httpd.conf file:

    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex abc.pl index.html index.wml index.cgi index.shtml index.jsp index.js index.jp index.php4 index.php3 index.php index.phtml index.htm default.htm defaul.html
    </IfModule>
    If you put abc.pl before index.html, it should become the default page... although depending on what you're trying to accomplish, you may have to remove the other entries.

    Hi,

    If you wish to use an alternate file as a default index page for perticuler domain. You can set following directive in .htaccess

    DirectoryIndex abc.pl

    Create the HTML files and put them under /root/cpanel3-skel and when a new cPanel account is created, those files will be placed under the customers /public_html/ directory. If you do not have root (such as if you're a reseller) then there should be a /cpanel3-skel/ directory under your primary reseller account.

    By default the new account login details are sent to the "Server contact email address" specified in the server setup. There is no setting in WHM by which you can change this behavior in the manner you have specified.

    Cool change default.htm to another page

    Okay what boonchuan actually wanted to know was.

    How do you set the default home page in CPanel?

    When you type the url without the page filename, then it would automatically load...default.htm instead of index.php.

    Well Boonchuan here's how you do it.
    Go to Domains
    Select the domain you want to Edit.
    Then Select Web Site Settings
    In the "Default Docs" box, make sure the file you want to use is at the top of that list.

    NOT EVERYTHING has to be done the hard way

    Try to use a bit of common sense friend
    Boonchaun asked this question on "09-26-2007". So its almost 2.5 years old. He most probably does not need answer for this now.

  16. #16
    erm, dude, and I googled this issue on "16-02-2010" to find a solution...
    Surely my common sense says the solution is now there for any "other" people that googles the question ...to find the solution here.
