I got a new server from godaddy without server support. I set up a new domain and properly configured the DNS settings. When I go to, I get the plesk/apache default page saying "You may now add content to the directory /var/www/html/. Note that until you do so, people visiting your website will see this page and not your content. To prevent this page from ever being used, follow the instructions in the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf."

How do get rid of this page and show the contents in (httpdocs)? hppt:// has been set as the default IP in plesk 8.1

Thanks!Confused :confused:

cat /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf

What's that tell you?

That should go away if you delete the contents of the httpdocs folder (where that default page is stored) and upload your site into it.
