Create a preview image for your template. You must save this image as the preview.png file.
Store the template in the appropriate directory on your cPanel & WHM server:
Store templates that the root user owns within a template-specific directory in the /var/cpanel/customizations/site_templates/ directory.
Store templates that a reseller owns within a template-specific directory in the /home/username/var/cpanel/reseller/site_templates/ directory, where username represents the reseller's username.
We strongly recommend that you do not store additional templates in the cPanel-provided-template directory.
In cPanel & WHM version 56 through 68, cPanel-provided templates exist in the /usr/local/cpanel/etc/site_templates/ directory.
In cPanel & WHM version 70 and higher, cPanel-provided templates exist in the /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/share/site_templates/ directory.
