    Skeleton Directory - 11.52 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    I'm trying to copy a single index.html file and for some reason, it's not being duplicated into newly created subdomains.
    1. May you please give me some advice or tips to troubleshoot this?
    2. Do I need to setup folder permissions or tweak anything in WHM?
    3. What is the difference of Skeleton Directory and Web Template Editor?
    I'm using WHMCS / WHM / cPanel on a VPS Setup with full root access.

    Hello :)

    Yes, the skeleton directory feature is intended for new accounts only. That being said, you could consult with a developer to help create a custom post subdomain creation script that could create or copy files after it's created:

    Thank you.

    The following quota is included in the document:

    This appears to make it clear that it's intended for new accounts when the system creates the account.

    Thank you.
