Plesk 12.x / Linux :: WordPress Installation Was Previously Detected At This Path / But It Is Not Operating
Jul 17, 2014
On server are many Wordpress installations after scan all these were added however about 90% have this tool-tip message "A WordPress installation was previously detected at this path, but it is not operating properly now." How to correct and manage these installations
I have installed the Wordpress application. The wordpress url is "server.com/wordpress", but I want to change it to something like "server.com/myblog".
In Plesk, the installation path cannot be changed (at least, it is not under "Change Settings").
Changing the Wordpress installation itself is not that difficult (renaming the folder in httpdocs and changing the siteurl and home parameter in the database), however, in Plesk still the old installation path is shown, and the Plesk interface to Wordpress obviously does not work any more.
How can I change the Wordpress installation path in Plesk?
Version Parallels Plesk v12.0.18_build1200140606.15 os_Ubuntu 12.04 OS Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS
I have a clean installation of Parallels Plesk on my server, and I installed wordpress on two of my domains. I'm scanning for installations through Plesk Admin, and it shows two installations with empty name and the toolkit is not functional at all. Check the attached screenshot.
I found out a easy way to update the Database name of a WP installation through phpmyadmin panel, However I can't seem to update or refresh the Parallels WP Settings with correct information. Is this a bug?
This is how to reproduce:
From phpMyAdmin select the database you want to select, in the tabs there's one called Operations, Go to the rename section.
Update the user privileges to the new Database name and remove the old privileges (save) Then manually update the wp-config file which contains the 'Database name' (save) Then goto Parallels Plesk > Websites & Domains> WordPress Installations > Change Settings
Here you should notice the Change Settings for the WordPress Installation still contains the old Database name.
Windows setup: Plesk Panel 11.5 - Server 2012r2 - IIS 8.5 - PHP 5.3/5.4/5.5 - mySQL/MSSQL. Server runs behind firewall (NAT). Setup with local DNS pointing all A records towards public IP.
Situation: Installed Wordpress through Plesk applications. (mysql). URL....Installs themes in WP console. Everything ok. Installs theme from file, site gets an 500 error. Sometimes installation of theme goes fine, but once activated or previewed it shows 500 error.

Not sure what is going on with Plesk.. I've modified and saved a specific service plan with the session.save_path to have a location by default to be /tmp/ and for some reason it isn't changing all customers accounts with the modified settings of the location to be /tmp/. In order to resolve the issue, I'd have to manually change the "default" option on each websites php settings session.save_path to /tmp/ instead of Plesk syncing the correct settings based on the modification. Because of so, I am receiving the following error below on a customers website below:
Warning: Unknown: open(/var/lib/php/session/sess_f9bffgv0ddrjo9geb6frhut5d7, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in Unknown on line 0 Warning: Unknown: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/var/lib/php/session) in Unknown on line 0
After making changes, I've tried the following in command line:
service php-fpm restart service httpd restart service psa restart
I recently had to uninstall WordPress from a blog of mine. The whole thing was down for a while and then I reinstalled WordPress but I'm trying to get the new install to recognize the prior install's database. I have done a lot of poking around and haven't been able to find the answer. I have also contacted the hosting service's customer support and they did respond with a quick answer but it was also a little too vague (or I might just not be understanding it right... but I think I am; I think it was good information they sent but probably just not enough good information).
I am having problems with two accounts, I get the following errors:
Code: Failed to copy files storage to destination path. stderr: filemng: Cannot open destination file '/var/www/vhosts/domain.tld/httpdocs/index.html.Chn3rn' System error 122: Disk quota exceeded stdout: filemng: Cannot open destination file '/var/www/vhosts/domain.tld/httpdocs/index.html.Chn3rn' System error 122: Disk quota exceeded
I've had nothing but issues trying to restore a backup from another plesk installation.Running Plesk 12 on CentOS 6. I installed a php extension which required php 5.4. Yum updated our php version, which broke a couple of our sites. In trying to use yum to remove php 5.4, it also removed several components to plesk.
I then attempted to reinstall plesk and restore our backups from the previous day, but ran into several errors related to the way plesk hashes passwords in backups (as I now had a new key to hash against, they wouldn't work right). I solved that problem by running the fix passwords utility . But now I'm getting the following errors, I suspect the first one is the main problem.
WARNING: (server object '') Execution of /usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/sb/utils/bru.php --restore --log=stdout --file=/usr/local/psa/PMM/tmp/sb54DVSHeFh.zip --target=server_settings failed with return code 1. Stderr is
I've searched and tried every solution to this I could find. When Plesk 12.1 is configured to process php by nginx, I just can't get Wordpress permalinks to work. If I switch permalinks to default the pages will appear, but if I use something like day and date for the permalinks I get a Nginx 404 error. Of course if I'm just using Apache and it can read the .htaccess file everything works fine. I think part of the reason the solutions I find won't work is my main site is static with the wordpress blog in the /blog/ subdirectory. What would I add in Plesk to get permalinks to work correctly with wordpress in a /blog subdirectory. I'd also like to get WP Super cache working as well if possible.
After my HDD crashed, I replaced it and installed Plesk 12.0.18 but not some options are missing from the panel.I'm missing this functionality: Send from domain IP addresses and use domain names in SMTP greeting
Also now after the restoration of the backups in /var/www/vhosts/<DOMAIIN_NAME>/logs/There are no logs, but they are present in /var/www/ vhosts/ system/<DOMAIIN_NAME>/logs/Before they were symlinked to the first directory.all my domains with a dedicated IP are being sent from my main IP, and they are being marked as spam because of SPF.

What I already have tried: Shell > apt-get install psa-vpn
Getting error mossage:

I recently changed the main domain url from website.com to www.website.com, this resulted in 404-errors when i navigated to wordpress...
I found a solution on the internet and updated the records with phpmyadmin [URL] ....
When I click on Login at the the WordPress Installations I'm still being navigated to the old website url. It supprices me that there is no option to change it on Plesk level after wordpress is deployed.
How can i change or update the wordpress path once it is installed in Plesk?
I'm using CentOS 6.2, maybe there is a config file or an database for Plesk?
See the attached jpeg for the complete error message.
All the sites are working okay so we know the databases are accessible and working. We have the latest version of Plesk 12 with micro updates done daily. This is a plain installation with no mods to the system files or software. This is hosted at 1and1.com; our other server at Rackspace found the WP installations without any problems.
