Plesk 11.x / Windows :: Can't Find Where To Change Folder Permissions Since Update To 11.5
Aug 9, 2013
I'm SURE this is me being stupid but I cannot find where to change folder permissions in the new Plesk interface?
I go to the file manager but all I have are the basic file/folder operations (Create, Delete, Upload File, etc) - I can't find anywhere to change permissions on the folders to give the MYSERVER_IUSR permission, etc.
I have a Plesk Panel v11.5.30 installed into a Windows Server 2012. Whenever the panel is updated, the filesystem permissions are modified. Group psacln cannot access to several folders like C:Program files, C:Program files (x86), etc. Plesk users connected via Remote Desktop cannot run programs like Internet Explorer or so. Some web apps use Crystal Reports to build reports, and this doesn't work either.
Why does the upgrade process restrict access to these folders? It is possible to modify default permissions applied after panel upgrades?
Plesk Support Web Form refuses to accept our License Keys as valid so I have no other way of contacting support.Recently MU#60 came out to patch a security hole in Plesk Panel. We need this applied but cannot find a way to force the plesk installations to install the update.
We run two, One on 10.4 and one on 9.5 (Yes I also realise these are old/end of life/not supported). They report they are running MU#58 and that they are up to date. They are set to auto update. Is it that MU#60 isn't compatible with them so it simply wont update to it? Or am I missing something? There seems to be no mechanic available in either panel to issue a manual or forced update to the new MU.I can provide my license keys if needed to validate this, they are active and in use and most definitely valid.
I have several users using WordPress that has been installed using the Plesk panel. They want to change the directory that WordPress is installed to. I know if that is done that WordPress will no longer be able to be managed or updated using the Panel. Is there any way to change the folder structure so that this application can still be managed by Plesk?
I have a problem where every folder I ftp onto the server gets given a 700 permission and every file gets a Zero permission. Most of the sites I am adding to this server will be WordPress sites and most of the folders I want to have a permission of 755 and for the files a permission of 644 so my question is how do I change the settings so that any new files ftp'd onto the server get the permission 755 and files get the permission of 644 ?
Ok, new to Plesk, trying to move from ispconfig. So I have Plesk 12 running on Centos 6 64bit in a VPS. I figured out how to upgrade PHP and now I have installed my first website. The website is joomla based but I am getting the below error when installing components:
Warning Copy failed.
JInstaller: :Install: Failed to copy file /var/www/vhosts/virtual-sim-racing.com/httpdocs/home/tmp/install_55081e65af5fe/pkg_kunena.xml to /var/www/vhosts/virtual-sim-racing.com/httpdocs/home/administrator/manifests/packages/pkg_kunena.xml
Package Install: Could not copy setup file.
This suggest to me a permissions issue - but what to do with it. I have checked all of the relevant Joomla folder permissions and they are all showing as writeable, so it looks like something outside of that?
I don't want to have to stick with ispconfig much longer ...
At some point, not sure when, PHPMyAdmin's (as accessed through the admin panel by clicking on a customer, manage hosting, databases, etc) permissions have changed such that I cannot view, edit or add MySQL routines/procedures. This appears to have occurred system-wide, though I have not checked every database on the server.
Is there a fix to get the permissions set so that I can make these changes again?
I believe the product we are using is Parallels Operations Automation.
We have a customer that we want to be able to give the right to unlock user accounts. The only way to do this seems to be to enable "Billing" as one of the privileges. Unfortunately this gives them more access than we really want to. Is there some trick we can use to give this user only these rights?
I am running Plesk 11.5.30 on CentOS and trying to change the default permissions of the /httpdocs folder and the skeleton site that is in .skel/0/httpdocs that appears when a domain is created. I have failed to find the event that I need to use to trigger the command.
I'm trying to copy a backup from the FTP server to the production server but I don't have enough space in the tmp folder.
There is a way to change where the backups are temporary until the hole backup is on the server? In case the only thing to do is to change where the tmp folder is mounted. This is a production server, I won't like to do it without knowing all the steps.
I am noticing that several of my users are wiping out their user root folders ( logs, error docs, etc...) when they fail to use '/httpdocs/' as the root directory when publishing with FTP.
I fixed this by editing the proftpd.conf to use ~/httpdocs/ as the DefaultRoot folder ( instead of just ~/ ).Would it be safer(better) to go through all the ftp users and make the home directory '/httpdocs/' instead of '/' in the admin UI? If yes, what is the best way to do a mass update of this setting for multiple users ( multiple domains ) ?
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 just ran into a very odd problem with my server. I was checking out my banner links on other sites when I realized none of them were displaying. I quickly checked the folder I keep the image in and I got a forbidden access warning. I checked the folder from ftp and it said the permissions were set to 0, instead of 755 like they should be
I can't move, delete, view, or alter the folder in any way.
I am doing some work on a server and when I create a new folder (using WinSCP) it defaults the folder permissions to 775 and file permissions to 664. Besides causing possible problems with the applications I'm installing, isn't this a bit of a security risk?
Also, if I upload a tar and untar on the server it sets the same 775/664 permissions.
if it's possible to change the permissions of a folder on a site (wwwrootscripts) so that the browser reads the scripts but when you go to the script location wwwroot/scripts/mystyles.css the user can't see the code?
I had a Problem with my FTP-Backup space, so PLESK couldn't do the daily backups that I configured. The problem with the ftp backup is solved. The backups are running again but there are still many large temporary files in a plesk folder.
Can I just delete them, or is this a bad idea?
The folder: C:Program Files (x86)ParallelsPleskPrivateTemp
I have noticed that i never install any program on my Server and my files of Web only 5 GB and Windows take 15 GB (My Hard Disk Usage 30 GB). Now my disk space available 1.7 GB. But when i go to check in the Recycler folder. There many files are taking up huge amounts of space, some are in excess of 10 GB . So could i deleting these files? How can I automatically delete contents of Recycler folder?
I'm using wsftp checking permissions in domain.net in this directory: /public_html/mambots/content/plugin_jw_sig
through wsftp i saw chmod 755 but when i try to delete this directory appears with 550 and i can't delete it
So i used File Manager tool in Cpanel, selected directory to erase it, seems like was done, but when i refresh page the directory it's still there, so i try to change permissions because apparently it has 755 but i can't do anything with it, so when i click button to change permission i got an error message [a fatal error or timeout occurred while processing this directive]
Then i go trough wsftp to check again and this directory it's still there
