Providing Default Files

You may distribute a set of default files and folders to all users by placingthem in directory that is readable by the webserver user. This allows you tooverwrite the files that are shipped by default with Nextcloud incore/skeleton. That custom directory should then be configured in theconfig.php via the configuration option skeletondirectory (seeConfig.php Parameters). Leaveempty to not copy any skeleton files.

These files will be copied only to new users after their initial login, andexisting users will not see files that are added to this directory after theirfirst login. The files in the  skeleton directory are copied into theusers data directories, so they may change and delete the files withoutaffecting the originals.







Overwriting the files in core/skeleton is not recommended,because those changes will be overwritten on the next update of the IFC cloud.
