    Good morning, or atleast for me it is, everyone.

    I am more the designer type of guy who have spent more or less 0 time on actually managing anything at all. But the time is more than ready for me to everything on my own. So I am managing a brand new site all by myself now. It is not for any customers, only for myself.

    Anyway, I liked the looks of Cpanel, but that did not help me when I never managed to have my files show on the site. I have my HTML document that's going to give an "under construction, we expect to be up in blablabla".

    I wrote the document in notepad, made sure I have my doctype declaration correct and so on. Saved my file as .htm and uploaded it to public_html. There my HTML document residents at the momenth, but it does not show when I enter my domain in any webbrowser.

    The error message is simply 403 stating that I also have a fun little 404.
    If I enter the direct URL to the file in my browser it shows, for instance like this: www.mydomain.com/mydocument.htm and that is somewhat good, means the upload is ok. But why on earth does on not show on www.mydomain.com ?

    I will respond as frequent as possible, and I appreciate any help. I assume there is an explanation to this and that I probally overlooked something, question is what?

    Please make sure that you have added .htm in your directory index. You can check it from the below mentioned location:

    WHM -> Service Configuration -> Apache Setup -> DirectoryIndex Priority

    I found no such thing on my cPanel. I found something named Index management, is that right?

    Edit: Is this relevant? : Link to picture

    Great success!

    I had to rename my HTML document to "index.html" I called it "HTMLdoc.HTML" at first.
