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.

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
