View Full Version : Default homepage?

05-28-09, 08:00
I recently moved to a new server and unfortunately the new server doesnít create a default home page for itís new clients. When I go to my site all I see is directory listing with cig-gin as the sub-directory. Can anyone please help me out here so I can get my default homepage working correctly?

Hi Dawnsday,

I'm sorry to hear you are not getting the service you should expect for your server. I know here at Bodhost the support service is awesome. In any case,

You will need to put the default homepage in your


It will then be copied to all new accounts you create as root. I hope this helps. let me know if you get it up and running, good luck.

In case those folders aren't present, create them manually :)
-bash-3.2# cd /root/
-bash-3.2# mkdir cpanel3-skel
-bash-3.2# cd cpanel3-skel/
-bash-3.2# mkdir public_html
-bash-3.2# cd public_html/
-bash-3.2# touch default.htmlWhenever a new account is created, cpanel would show this:
Copying skel files from /root/cpanel3-skel/ to /home/someuser/......DoneNow if you go to /home/someuser/public_html/ you'd notice the default.html file there :)

You Rock thanks a lot. I will give this a try and see if it works. I guess I just don't know enough to go it alone on something like this. The support I'm getting with my host on my dedicated server really isn't enough for someone like me. I kind of feel like a bone thrown to a pack of wolfs.
