Learning about the skeleton directory WHM



Learning about the skeleton directory in WHM

This demo assumes you've already logged in to WebHost Manager.

Now let's learn about the skeleton directory.

Click the Account Functions link.

Then click Skeleton Directory.

The skeleton directory is where you put a temporary home page for all accounts you create in WHM.

The temporary home page is what visitors will see in their browsers, until they create a new home page.

In this tutorial , the WHM's account's main username is demoreseller, so that's where the skeleton directory is located as shown here.

To change the temporary (or default) home page, simply upload a new page to the cpanel3-skel directory in the location show above, using either an FTP program or the file manager tool in your main account's cPanel.

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know about the skeleton directory in WHM, and what it's used for.
