Hi there, after migrating my site to a new server, from a shared server using cPanel to a VPS using Plesk, my frontpage does not show up, instead a default webpage created by Plesk display. There is no doubt that is has something to do with either index.html or .htaccess files, but I haven’t been able to figure out a solution. Some suggest that server settings have to be made through SSH.
What is wright or wrong in this case, and which settings should I change to point my site to the new server?
The .htaccess file has been created, but it is suggested here that the .htaccess file is not configured on the apache server?
It is also suggested that you should not use .htaccess on a VPS server.
Is the server .htaccess file configured when migrating?
By default the .htaccess is reset to a minimalist version, This helps to support the transition, and avoid additional issues on the new server or environment. The .htaccess file setup is configurable more details about that process can be found here.

Hope this helps~
Hi there, thank’s for the link. As I read the case, I can rule out the .htaccess file for causing the trouble. Can index.html create any issues like this, it seems like my site is not directed in the right direction?
Ohter ideas to try out?
Yes, an index.html or any index file could cause this issue, you may want to check with your hosting provider to see if they can pinpoint the redirect.
Hi there, my site on the old server, did not have an index.html file in the root of the directory, but after migration to the new server an index.html has been created?
Should any of the content in the index.html be changed to specify my domain, or should it be kept standard as it is?
<!doctype html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Domain Default page</title> <meta name="copyright" content="Copyright 1999-2022. Plesk International GmbH. All rights reserved."> <script src="https://assets.plesk.com/static/default-website-content/public/default-website-index.js"></script> </head> <body> This is a default webpage generated for <script>document.write(location.hostname)</script> by Plesk. </body> </html>
On the other hand a .htaccess.bk probably created by cPanel, has been added the new server running Plesk, during migration. I have deleted that file, but it has no effect on my issue.

It looks like the index.html file is being laid down by your host, that is not something the duplicator would create but only copy. You might be able to temporarily remove the index.html file or rename it. The .htaccess.bk will not be processed if it has the .bk extension so that file can be ignored as long as it has the “dot beak”.bk” at the end.

Hi Cory, thank’s, I appreciate if you would take a closer look at the issue.
Maybe I got a little bit closer to solve the issue. I ran the installer again, and received this error, but I’m not able to read anything out of it myself.
