    Can I change default http_root (httpdocs) in Plesk For windows?

    My problem is this.

    My application is written so that it requires installation into a folder d:\www_apps\exampledomain.com\ (starting point of a very complex application)

    This far everything is ok… I’ve changed Virtualhosts location using Plesk configurator and new domain appears in d:\www_apps\ -directory as it should. (d:\www_apps\exampledomain.com\)

    How ewer iis is pointig in to d:\www_apps\exampledomain.com\httpdocs\ which is not what I want.

    I should be able to configure plesk so that when creating a new domain iis is pointing in to d:\www_apps\exampledomain.com\ and default.htm is in that directory not in subdirectory \httpdocs

    Is that possible?

    This can be done with Plesk Reconfigurator:

    Start > all programs > SWSoft > Plesk > Plesk Reconfigurator > Change Virtual Host Location.

    No it can not.

    It changes virtual hosts root location, but thet is not the problem.

    Problem is virtual hosts directory structure.

    If I change virtual hosts location I get this:

    d:\www_apps\vhost1.com\.. directory structure of vhost
    d:\www_apps\vhost2.com
    …
    So Plesk creates like this:

    d:\www_apps\vhost2.com\httpdocs\default.asp

    What I need is to be able to locate vhost2.com:s default.asp and applications startingpoint like this:

    d:\www_apps\vhost2.com\default.asp

    What I’m trying to say that I don’t need (can not use) that extra directory structure under vhost’s root.

    It is not possible , this is Plesk design, to create domain folder (security boundary) - then subfolders

    Is there a way to change "httpdocs" to "something_else"?
