simple fixes when migrating from old plesk

    I just recently completed a migration of over 100 domains from a PSA 5.0.5 standard machine to a PSA 7.5.2 machine.

    Along the way the biggest problem was with frontpage settings and user configurations that referred to the old /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts folder. Note that frontpage also sets things up hardcoded to this location.

    I found that an easy way to address this problem was to go into the /usr/local/psa folder on the new 7.5.2 machine and create a symbolic link so that the scripts, etc which refer to /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts will automatically get directed to /home/httpd/vhosts.

    I hope that this may save a few people a lot of hassle.

    Another annoying thing I noticed was that the default httpd.conf file did not have handlers for index.php or index.htm (or html, one of the two). This caused the default apache pages to be displayed. Changing the httpd.conf to include these index pages was also a major helper.
