    I know that I can put my own index page into the directory /root/cpanel3-skel so that new accounts do not show the parent directory, but I cannot figure out how this is done. :confused: Does anyone know?

    Thanks,
    Keren

    When I updated my skeleton directory, I uploaded all the files to a secondary-staging-location, for lack of better terms. After which, I shelled into my server with ssh, cd'd to /root/cpanel3-skel/public_html/. And finally, wget'd all the files I needed.

    To reiterate:

    1: Upload files you want in the skeleton diretory to any location accessable via the web.

    2: Access your server via ssh and gain root access.

    3: cd /root/cpanel3-skel/pubic_html/

    4: wget -url-to-file-here-
    (e.g. wget http://www.somedomain.com/skel_temp/some_file.html)

    5: Repeate step 4 untill you have all the files.

    Regards,
