Hi @adobe8832289,

By default Laravel Loads files from the public folder. If you’ve uploaded all your Laravel files in your httpdocs, when opening your Domain in the browser can you try and load it like so :

Does it load the website that way?

If yes, you’ll need to make your plesk account’s DocumentRoot to httpdocs/public and that’s it.

As to how to change the DocumentRoot, you can do that from your Pleks Admin Panel for the said account –> Hosting Settings.
