    just wondering if someone could give me any pointers on which files i should edit so when i create a new domain i can customise the default plesk page.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    You can either upload it via the skeleton section inside Plesk, or modify /home/httpd/vhosts/default or /var/www/vhosts/default or /usr/local/vhosts/default depending on your installation.

    hi ive looked in those dirs, the first 2 exsist but the index.html's in there are for the default blue plesk page. When i create a domain i dont get that page any more, i get this:

    This is the placeholder for domain carlchandler.co.uk. If you see this page after uploading site content you probably have not replaced the index.html file.

    This page has been automatically generated by Plesk.

    plain text, just wondering if anyone knew where that page lives? Would really like to customise it.

    The ones which are used upon new domain creation, are the Skeleton files. They are located in:


    (most systems)

    or as Cranky indicated, depending on your installation, they may be in:


    (some newer 7.5.4 systems)

    Easiest would be to do a locate or find command to find the /.skel/0/ directory on your particular server.

    You can edit the existing skeleton files, or create and upload additional 'sets' of skel files:
