    I work at a web design company and since we publish a lot of websites, our ISP has set up a new server for us with Plesk installed, so that we can manage these sites ourselves. Now, I've read a bit of the manual and tried to publish a customers' website but it's not going very well.

    We will be managing everything on our customers' behalf, unless they request otherwise, so where do I begin? Let's say I just created a new website for a customer and I want to publish it on "foo.se". I started by adding a domain and when I connect via ftp with the login and password I entered under "Physical hosting setup", I see a whole bunch of folders:
    • anon_ftp
    • bin
    • cgi-bin
    • conf
    • error_docs
    • httpdocs
    • ...
    ... etc.

    This is a little confusing since I expected to be presented with an empty folder where I could upload the customers' website. Do I have to create a new "web user" for that purpose? How does this work?

    This structure is based on virtual hosts. You need to put your files inside the folder httpdocs or if you want to use https, put the files inside the httpsdocs folder. Hope this helps,

    Ok, I understand. Which folders can I safely delete? There's a lot of junk inside "httpdocs".
    • css
    • img
    • picture_library
    • plesk-stat
    • test
    I would guess that removing "plesk-stat" is not a good idea, but everything else should be fine, right? Btw, is there a way to specify that certain folders should not be created when creating a new domain account?

    You can create your own skeleton. Info on how to do that is in the manual.
