    There used to be a place where i could add a custom index page that would get added to each account i create automatically.

    I can't find that anymore. Is it gone from whm?

    Thanks! Jim

    Place an index file in /root/cpanel3-skel/public_html
    I'm not running cpanel 6.4.0 so if the above doesn't help it might have been moved or changed. :confused:

    Thanks Elena,

    I'm not very technical, and i used to have a default page installed(before i accidentally deleted everything on my server).

    So I'm thinking there must have been an option thru whm to add that index page (at least in the old version of whm i had).

    Am i hallucinating, or maybe i hired someone to put that in there thru ssh and i don't remember?

    Hi Guys,

    We are using WHM/cpanel 6.2.0 you can upload your files to /root/cpanel3-skel/public_html , then all files will be copied to every new account created on that server.

    Hope this helps :)

    The default index page i loaded into /root/cpanel3-skel/public_html no longer works.

    Could it be that when i changed from adding accounts as root to adding them as a reseller, i need to put this default index page in a different directory specifically for me as the "reseller"?

    I'm on 8.4.0, but it stopped working b4 i upgraded from 7.x.

    A reseller gets their own cpanel3-skel directory under their home directory.

    When you ftp to your account you should see the "public_html" directory as usual, and also see a "cpanel3-skel" directory. In that directory you will see it's own "public_html' directory which is where your default index page goes.

    thanks for your help.

    What is the path to get to the reseller home directory. I'm not really a reseller, so i don't know where the "home" directories are for the resellers. I'm the server owner, and i just thought i would create a "reseller" for myself, so i could brand cpanel with our logo.

    thanks again, Jim

    The reseller home directory is the same as any other account. The reseller has a username, and the home directory is in:
    /home/username/
    so the directory you want would be in:
    /home/username/cpanel3-skel/public_html
