How to configure global default document settings that will affect Widnows based subscriptions created in PPA?


PPA uses virtual host template that is located on Management Node "/var/www/vhosts/.skel/0/".

To to customize the default document set perform the following:

  1. On the management node go to /var/www/vhosts/.skel/0/httpdocs (in case if the HTTPD_VHOSTS_D is set to /var/www/vhosts/ as by default)

  2. Create a web.config file with the content alike one listed below. That web.config file will be used to set a default document, or list of default documents for your websites.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
                    <clear />
                    <add value="Index.php" />
                    <add value="Index.html" />
                    <add value="Index.htm" />
                    <add value="Index.cfm" />
                    <add value="Index.shtml" />
                    <add value="Index.shtm" />
                    <add value="Index.stm" />
                    <add value="Index.php3" />
                    <add value="Index.asp" />
                    <add value="Index.aspx" />
                    <add value="Default.htm" />
                    <add value="Default.asp" />
                    <add value="Default.aspx" />

NOTE: that this web.config file will be added to every virtual hosts despite Linux or Windows.
