    I got a new server from godaddy without server support. I set up a new domain and properly configured the DNS settings. When I go to http://sitename.com, I get the plesk/apache default page saying "You may now add content to the directory /var/www/html/. Note that until you do so, people visiting your website will see this page and not your content. To prevent this page from ever being used, follow the instructions in the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf."

    How do get rid of this page and show the contents in http://sitename.com (httpdocs)? hppt://sitename.com has been set as the default IP in plesk 8.1

    Thanks!:confused:

    I hate to be the one to say this, but did you follow the instructions in the /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf file?

    if so, what was the result? if not, try it and let us konw.

    The main issue is I can't figure out how to access the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf.

    The instructions on the page in the browser skip step1 which is accessing the named file above and go to step2 which is editing the file.

    Thanks!:confused:

    assuming you have root access you can view it by:

    cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf

    the file basically says this
    You can edit by typing in
    nano -w /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf

    Is this file accessible through the Plesk admin panel? If so, how. If not, how do I gain root access?

    Thanks!:confused:

    you have to be the server owner to get to the page or get root access. If you are not that person you should contact your provider for direct assistance.
