Hello :)

You can modify the "documentroot" value in the following file:

Code:
/var/cpanel/userdata/username/domain.com
Simply replace "username" with the user name of the account, and "domain.com" with the domain name you would like to edit the document root for. After you have modified the "documentroot" value in this file, you will need to rebuild the Apache configuration file via:

Code:
# /scripts/rebuildhttpdconf
Thank you.

Thanks a lot,
I see the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf was change but still when I try to load mylandpage.co.il it's go to /public_html and only if I go to mylandpage.co.il/public the application load.

do I need to restart httpd?

And if I want to add <directory > instruction I'll do it in the same file?

Hello,

Yes, you have to restart Apche after rebuilding httpd.conf, to refelct the changes in it. No, don't put any Apche related confs in cpanel/userdata files. You can use the include files specified in the httpd.conf, for the particular domain.

Thank you,
Nibin.

The httpd restart was help.

So for now just the question about <directory> instruction

The following documentation is useful if you need to make changes within a VirtualHost in the httpd.conf file:

Thank you.
