Hello,

You can modify the document root for a domain name by editing the "documentroot" entry in the appropriate cPanel user data file:

Code:
/var/cpanel/userdata/$username/$domain.com
Then, rebuild the Apache configuration file via:

Code:
/scripts/rebuildhttpdconf
You will need to develop a script that completes this action for all accounts, and runs automatically when new accounts are created, if you prefer to automate this functionality.

Thank you.

I believe you do not understand, let's go.

In my hosting use mainly laravel, and would leave already configured that each account created apache make reading the DocumentRoot in public_html/www

Would it automatically, every account created a template for this was generated.

I have changed the /root/ cpanel3-skel/public_html to automatically create the www folder and with the necessary access, could understand?

Thank you very much.

Hello @hrace009,

We do have a feature request opened to allow users to update the document root for the primary domain name associated with the account through cPanel:

Allow users to change the DocumentRoot

I encourage you to open a new feature request if you'd like to see the ability for administrators to change the default document root for new accounts via an option in Web Host Manager:

Submit A Feature Request

Thank you.
