How can I set a page as a default page in Plesk. for example, when somebody requests, it will automatically open




  1. Chosen as BEST ANSWER

    Found it, you need first to go to your Home Page in Plesk Panael, choose virtual directories, then choose your domain, then choose Directory Propertories

  2. this kind of done via .htaccess in Linux file of made URL rewrite changes in IIS for windows.


    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^$
    RewriteRule ^$ [L,R=301]

    I hope this helps.

  3. Or to use Web.Config but the recommended way is to use from virtual directories

              <defaultDocument enabled="true">
                    <add value="home.html" />

    Apache is usually set to index.php or index.html

    You may use .htaccess on linux servers and set the default page in Plesk website

    DirectoryIndex index.php index.html site-down.php

  4. If the website is opening index.html (displays default page provided by the web hosting company), and you want the default page to be controlled by index.php, delete (or rename index.html) and it will automatically pickup index.php as the startup file. At least that is how it works with Peer 1.
