How to configure global default document settings that will affect domains created in Plesk?


  1. Go to C:\inetpub\vhosts\.skel\0\httpdocs (in case if the HTTPD_VHOSTS_D is set to C:\Inetpub\vhosts\ as it used 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" />
