    Hi, for some reason or another when ever a new account is created a "images" folder is placed in the main directory. Is there a easy way to turn this off. The issue here is that sites like Joomla via Fantasico can not be created without first removing that images folder...

    Regards...

    Hi I am newbie myself. I had been reading the whm manual, below maybe related to your issue:

    "whm -> Account Functions -> Skeleton directory

    root/cpanel3-skel

    This directory is what will be used as a skeleton for new accounts. For example if you place an index.html file in /root/cpanel3-skel/public_html, and then setup a new account, that account will have a copy of your index.html in their public_html directory."

    So maybe there is a directory called images in the Skeleton directory thus creating this directory whenever an account is created.

    I can confirm this behavior. On my server an images directory is created for all users, even though it is not in the owning accounts skeleton. I would like to have this issue resolved also.

    The images directory will be created by having FrontPage Extensions enabled, including upon account creation. To prevent the images directory from being created, ensure that FrontPage Extensions is not enabled in the applicable Package that is used when creating the new account.

    Thanks for the information, so frontpage extensions should be disabled to remove frontpage default directory - images. Joomla users don't need frontpage extensions anyway.

    Awesome

    Awesome, I never knew that was part of Front Page, does anyone even use Front page anymore.

    Thanks again..

    Yes; that is correct. To ensure the directory is not created it is necessary to not enable FrontPage Extensions, and for removal FrontPage Extensions should be disabled via cPanel/WHM. In case FrontPage Extensions is already uninstalled but the images directory still exists, it may be removed via a number of methods, including via the cPanel File Manager, via FTP access, or via command-line SSH access.
