i am relatively new to Plesk, i ordered a vserver with Plesk a couple of months ago and spend a lot of time setting everything up and developing several new websites. I am used to developping new websites on a hidden adress (sth like domain.com/dev/ instead of the top level) and then switch the document root to point to the hidden directory when all is done. This practice has served me and my clients well for the last 10 years.
Using the Plesk features like built-in applications seemed like a good idea at the time but wanting to switch the new websites live i have now found out that Plesk won't let me do this since..It is impossible to change document root because there are web applications installed on this website.
I had read somewhere on the interweb that the v12 would let me do this so i just spent the better part of today updating to v12 .. but alas no luck, the limitation is still there. Is there a way to remove this limitation ?
I am running a LAMP server, working to get everything configured and as secure as I can make it. I have been trying to decide weather to change the document root to a different directory, or if it would be better/worse or more/less secure to chown and chmod the current directory.
Any input would be helpful, I just don't want to overlook some small detail as this is my first time handling a server on my own.
Basic question: does it matter where I set the document root for apache on a Linux system? I've googled this but haven't found a good answer.
This is for a VPS server running the Ubuntu (Debian) server os that I'm configuring. I'd prefer to simply create a new directory off the root and set that as the document root in the apache config file. Would this present any kind of security issue?
If that's no good, what's the best choice -- stick to the default?
After this I did a reboot of the apache server using the CMD httpd -k restart. I even tried restarting using the apachemonitor and rebooted the whole server. But apache still loads the files from c:/Apache24/htdocs
I can't find any more entries with htdocs to change. What am I missing?
I've done some manual change of document root in httpd.conf for a user. I know that now, I don't need to to manual change since user can set there own folder!
Now, If I rebuild Apache, he will re-do all the configuration to the original one. Where can I find the settings for domain document root so I can change it and EasyApache will rebuild the httpd.conf correctly?
I don't want to remove the domain since I'll lost all email account!
I've installed the Plesk Panel onto a windows 2008 server. It's all good, web sites are flowing and I'm really happy with the software. The issue I'm having is a customer has an asp site with an access database. After I uploaded their site, they couldn't write to the database, so I had to manually go and set the permission on the database for the "Plesk IIS Anonymous Account (IUSR_xxx)" user to have modify access on the file.
So my question is this, how can I set up the default hosting account to already allow this and so I don't have to go an waste time tweaking the folders manually trying to find the right permissions?
Also, why is it the Plesk IIS Anonymous account that needed to have it's permissions tweaked and not the "Default Plesk application pool user (IWAM_plesk(default))" which is the user who's configured on the application pool in IIS? I can't see where the Plesk IIS Anon user is being used.
I am replacing the default certificate in Plesk so that customers do not get a certificate warning when visiting the panel login page.
I've created the certificate in the "SSL Certificates" section made it default and used it to secure Plesk. However I've still got all the existing domains using the old default certificate, how can I do a mass changeover so that all existing domains are now using the new certificate?
I've updated the IP's to use the new certificate. When I go to "SSL Certificates" in "Tools and Settings", it seems that there are some domains now using the new certificate but quite a lot of the other are still not, how can I get these over too?
i upgraded plesk few days ago to the latest version to be able to use it on my tablet.when i done so My mail enable webmail is not functioning anymore, it opens the default plesk website.i have mail enable enterprise version 6.6 licensed.i tried to rebuild i tried everything till now i tried to go to server components and try to disable the webmail and re enable it and see. so it disabled fine, when i tried to enable it gave this error: Error: Set default component failed: defpackagemng failed: Execute websrvmng --add-webmail-site --webmail=mewebmail failed with error code 1: Cannot find hosting by domain ID 47
how to get my webmail back up. an update, i have tried enabling horde first, then i tried accessing the webmail it worked with horde, then i went back to server components, when i tried enabling mailenable webmail now it didnt give the error and worked. (ONLY when horde is enabled with it) then i went back to mail settings tried to use mail enable instead of horde, now it gives service is unavailable! a complete new error. i went to iis i found that MailEnableAppPool status: stopped, i tried enabling then restart iis, once restart it gets back to disabled,
When typing my ip it used to go to Plesk landing page.
Then through the option: server > tools > IP Addresses, I changed the "Default site" to my main domain, however, it just points to the main page, and not changes the url to the domain (keeps the ip in title, and not show the domain url).
How to make it forwarded to the domain (show it in the address bar), and not just to the index page?
My System: Ubuntu 12.04 Plesk 12.0.18 Update #18 Only Webserver no mail
What I want: I have an old sha1 certificate and I would change this for the whole server.
What I have done so far: I have already uploaded the new sha256 certificate with a new private key to plesk (I can not simply replace the old one, plesk does not allow me to upload a new private key).
Then I set the new certificate as standard certificate and pressed the "secure pannel" button.
After that the panel uses the new certificate.
Then I set in "Tools & Settings -> IP Addresses" on both IP addresses the new certificate.
But now the "Tools & Settings -> SSL Certificates" shows me that the old certificate is still used 2 times somewhere. But the Interface does not show where it is used. How can I find out where this certificate is used? I want to remove the old certificate from the server.
