    The webpage for my current main shared server IP (67.225.131.71) is quite ugly (blank white page with large black text).

    1. How can I change the default landing page for the IP (as well as other areas where one might encounter that "CPanel Apache Success!" page)?

    2. Can I modify the default landing page to be some given user account? For example, I want to make account with name "accountx" the default landing page where one might otherwise see a CPANEL SUCCESS! page. That is to say, accountx's index page would be the default landing page.

    3. Is it possible to configure the default landing page as a redirect to an off-server webpage?

    Thanks!

    Ok if you edit the index.html in /usr/local/apache/htdocs that will change the default Cpanel Success page.

    Now for the default page when you set up a domain you need to set that up in /root/cpanel3-skel What ever you place there will be added when you set up a site.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi James!

    Thanks for the tips!

    I've completed these steps. The success page has indeed been modified.

    Unfortunately, it appears my main IP still resolves to a plain white page, regardless of the skel configuration.

    http://67.225.131.71/

    Is there a way to edit httpd.conf to do what I want?

    (Also, are questions 2 and 3 from the original post reasonable? Might it be possible to create some sort of system link or pointer?)

    Thanks again!
