Hello,

im trying to set up my first paige with cpanel and it worked after i let someone let it setup. He putted the folder with the files into the public_html folder and it works but now im setting up my second page and i cant set it up when i put the folder under the website folder it dont works and also under the public_html folder it dont works. Now i heard you should have a public_html folder for every single website. I dont know what i must do to set up the second website.

Hi @ShadowBeast

Can you tell me if you're creating an addon domain to the already existing account or if you're creating a new account?

This is important because for an addon domain the document root (where your site lives) will be whatever you named it when creating the addon domain, in a lot of cases its /home/$user/public_html/addondomain.tld

We have documentation on addon domains that might be helpful here: Addon Domains - Version 68 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

Thanks!
