Cpanel Default Web Page

When you setup a new cpanel server and want to test the apche service then you try to call the IP address like to see if its working.
You will see the default webpage defaultwebpage.cgi. This is the standard system on cpanel.

The defaultwebpage.cgi actualy is the result of redirection of index.html in /usr/local/apache/htdocs/index.html. The defaultwebpage.cgi itself is placed in /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi.

To modify this defaultwebpage, try this 2 simple options:
1. Edit /usr/local/apache/htdocs/index.html. and change the meta http redirection. Index.html consist this simple html script:
META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0;URL=/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

You can change the value in URL=/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi to URL=/another/page.

2. Or you can edit /usr/local/apache/htdocs/index.html to what ever you like.

Wana try....?
