Learning about the skeleton directory in WHM

  • This demo assumes you’ve already logged in to WebHost Manager.
  • Now let’s learn about the skeleton directory.
  • Click the Account Functions link.
  • Then click Skeleton Directory.
  • The skeleton directory is where you put a temporary home page for all accounts you create in WHM.
  • The temporary home page is what visitors will see in their browsers, until they create a new home page.
  • In this tutorial , the WHM’s account’s main username is demoreseller, so that’s where the skeleton directory is located as shown here.
  • To change the temporary (or default) home page, simply upload a new page to the cpanel3-skel directory in the location show above, using either an FTP program or the file manager tool in your main account’s cPanel.
  • This is the end of the tutorial. You now know about the skeleton directory in WHM, and what it’s used for.
