Plesk 11.x / Linux :: Website Files Copied To Another Domain But Database Remains On Old Site
May 18, 2014
When I use website copy function the website files are copied to another domain but the database remains on old site. I use this function to move the website from devel state to the production state. All sites work fine but when i schedule the backups all databases are saved on old domain. How to move the database on production domain?
I cannot seem to find a conclusive answer to this. I use subdomains to create client websites then once they are in their own domains the subdomains still remain. Can I delete only the subdomain and leave all the files or at least leave the database since it is still connected to the new domain. Example below.
subdomain.example.com uses database1
newsite.com still uses database1
Is there a way to copy the database into the new domain?
When you delete a site backup from its "Backup Manager" Panel, it is removed and no longer displayed in the Panel. However, I cannot tell if this action actually does anything with the real site backup files in "/var/lib/psa/dumps". Does this action merely remove it from PSA's database but not touch any actual files? If this is true, then how are site backup files supposed to be managed if this action doesn't actually delete them?
I had an hosting account with a copany, recently I migrated to VPS managed by plesk 11.5..I was able to get the awstats database file from the old host, and i have copied them in the /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/statistics/webstats/ folder, together with the other database files genereted by the new VPS hosting
Only problem is that plesk only rebuilds everyday the static page for the current month, and I see no way to ask him to build the pages for this past months. Also would be good if he would rebuild the header to have updated the dropdown menu from which to choose the month to dispay..Is it possible to rebuild manually these static pages?
Differences between Websites & Domains and Webspaces
I'm a beginner in Plesk Panel and I've a "concept" question. So, which are the differences between Websites & Domains and Webspaces? There's some documentation about the definition of this three objects?
I have a Plesk 12 server running under Debian 7. I have a website with only mail so I disable web hosting. The problem is that the client needs to use webmail but webmail does not work (maybe because web hosting is disabled)...
I'm setting up a SAAS service which is built on top of Laravel. To put it simply the service itself knows whether its being called from a sub.example.com or just example.com and serves a correct response accordingly. So going to sub.example.com will use the same index.php file as example.com but the routes and controllers within the application will provide a different response. sub.example.com will show a tenant login page where as example.com will show a new tenant subscription page or something else.
So when someone new subscribes I add a new entry to the database with a subdomain name for them and when a request comes from that subdomain and they are logged in it will show them their information. Easy right.
There is a problem though with setting it up with Plesk. When I add a wildcard subdomain, it will look for /subdomains/sub/ for the files which is a bit problematic since I want it to serve the files from the same place as the domain example.com.
Is there a way to configure that so that regardless of the subdomain it will try and serve the exact same content as my main domain?
I think the wrong text is displayed for the option "Remove Domain Alias".
In Plesk 11.5.30 Update #13, in a Webspace, on the Websites & Domains tab, if I click an alias, a window appears for the alias with the option to "Remove Domain Alias". If I move the cursor over the text "Remove Domain Alias", or click on the link, I see a pop-up: Removing this website will also delete all related files, directories, and web applications from the server.
I think this is incorrect because removing an alias should not remove any files, directories, and web applications.
I am trying to do something that I believe is fairly non-standard. What I am looking to do is create a system where I can rapidly deploy web sites without having to restart named and Apache. For example, if a customer completes a process, I want to be able to turn that site on immediately using a temporary domain (somecompany.example.com or othercompany.example.com).
With some programming language (hopefully PHP) I would like to get the customer up and running with their site immediately without having to restart the server. While doing some research I found I could use MyDNS which uses MySQL to manage DNS data instead of configuration files. MyDNS can be updated on the fly.
For Apache I have seen wildcard configurations, but everyone seems to be suggesting the use of mod rewrite. I would prefer that the domain maps directly to a specific folder:
After a server migration, some critical Plesk settings were not copied across, even though the option to backup/restore panel configuration was used. e.g.
skeleton (vhosts.skel folder) php.ini (Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskAdditionalPleskPHP5* folder) Default site (vhostsdefault folder) health config (Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskadminconfcustom-health-config.xml) Additional Administrator accounts
Is there a way to get these things to backup and restore that I am doing wrong?
Are there other important settings/data that I have missed from that list? I am still paying to keep the old server in case I discover something else!
Using Plesk Backup & Restore for disaster recovery will lose these settings unless they take extra steps. e.g. I now have a simple batch file that copies these files to a private folder on one of the domains before the daily backup kicks in.
When I update servers via CLI autoinstaller, I always (afair) get this mysqldump error message:
Stopping psa... * Stopping Plesk engine pool manager sw-engine-fpm ...done. done -- Warning: Skipping the data of table mysql.event. Specify the --events option explicitly.
mysqldump: Got error: 1049: Unknown database 'atmail' when selecting the database

There is no database "atmail" on any of our Plesk servers. Simple solution should be to first check if the DB exists before performing actions on it.As a bonus, perhaps it would be possible to suppress the warning about mysql.event.
I added a mail resource and a database resource to the "branding" service template, and made sure the provisioning attributes match up to an actual node. I also made sure that under the resources for the branding template the "Branding Hosting (management node)" -> "Number of MySQL databases" is "1" and the "MySQL Database" is unlimited.
Ive made a primary branded domain assigned to the administrator account. When I then login to the account, I see that the mail resource is added and I can add email accounts. However, the database resource does not seem to be activated. Indeed, if I try to add a application in the domain that requires a database, it fails because there is not a database resource available.
The database server is a separate node from the management server.
I do not see any running tasks waiting, and the events log doesnt mention anything about provisioning a database.
Separately but tangentially related, once the account is up, I dont see it listed as an active subscription under the service template. I should see it there, right?

We have a few hosting plans setup with different "allowances" for each.The website permissions allow basic html and PHP.In Windows Advanced: The website settings allow for html, php, asp and asp.net
When we change a Basic Hosting plan to Windows Advanced using "Change Plan", it will reassign the subscription/domain to use the new plan, but it will not add-on the extra features in Hosting Settings.
I've had a problem to get a connection to my websites via https. My Plesk is version 12.0.18 an it runs on ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I have installed the certificate in that way: URL.... The SSL in that repository is activated in the hosting settings. I've activated and deactivated them a several times. The nginx.conf and the httpd.conf seems to be all fine.
SSL Engine is on an certificate statements links to the certificates in /opt/psa/var/certificates/The access_ssl_log an proxy_access_ssl_log had no entries, but /var/log/nginx/error.log said:

I just started using plesk for my blogs and websites, so testing and finding my way around i notice every site i add instead of having its own folder just like in cpanel(shared hosting) the sites are been added under the primary domain.
I have the latest centos 7 and plesk 12 installed on a dedicated server and i wish to add a new IP to use on a specific website. However, when I am trying to add the IP in plesk i am getting the following error:
Code: Error: ifmng failed: sh: /sbin/ifconfig: No such file or directory /sbin/ifconfig 'eth0:1' '18.104.22.168' netmask '255.255.255.255' up exited with non-zero status 127
I have read somewhere on the forum that installing iptables can fix this but cents 7 is using the new firewald and i am wondering if in the future such a change will not affect the well being of the overall server.
Is there any solution to this problem or will there be a fix from Plesk in the near future ?
I have a domain which has a website built in Web Presence Builder. That allows people to go to http://domain.com. When they do that, for Google analytics purposes (I do not want Google Analytics to show 2 pages of http://domain.com and http://www.domain.com), I want to ensure that any request puts www. in it automatically.
I've always hosted on shared hosting but recently upgraded to a VPS and am running Plesk 12.0.18 (Update #33).
Previously I had a way of sending a client a link to the site before the DNS and domains propagated. Usually, this was in the structure of
With Plesk, I am trying to do the same. But when I hit the preview button beside a domain name / web space, I get a very long winded URL which partially works.
I could probably live with that but all my CSS paths are broken, browsing any links brings up a 404 nginx error etc. It's not good.
Interestingly, I have a site on the same VPS which works beautifully as the domain propogation has kicked in. However, and here's the thing, the very site in this URL preview structure has the same issue ... broken CSS files.
Is this a problem with my VPS provider or a Plesk oddity? BTW I know I could setup a cheap temp domain or change my Mac hosts file but I think this is beside the point. Would I be better off switching to Cpanel or a different VPS provider?
