I have just used rsync to backup a dedicated server to a new cloud server. I put the files in a plesk webspace 'Backup' folder for ease of use (gui). In File Manager for that webspace it shows the folder user and group as root, which is obviously correct as rsync maintains users etc?
Thats fine, I just wanted to be able to back them up along with the rest of the server configuration and content.
However, when I run backup it says "For security reasons, backing up is performed on behalf of subscription's system user. This system user has no read access to:" and "So it was not backed up. All other data was backed up successfully. To fix this issue you may grant access read/write to the file or directory for system user "(username)" or "apache"."
I don't know how to give read/write access to the system user? Through file manager there is no option to change permissions.
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?
We have several sites on one server. When I use the plesk wordpress manager it some how updates the User and Group permissions on folders and files with the username apache. How or what command do I run to get it to use the site username and psacln. It appears something maybe in an update or whatever has caused this issue. This only occurs with wordpress and drupal updates from the plesk interface.
What command can I run just to update the permissions to update all users to a username and psacln security settings on folders and directories.Running Plesk 12.0.18 and CentOS7
Applying Plesk firewall changes? I make my change, apply and get to:
Status: Applying in progress. If your browser shows connection error messages, or if this screen does not disappear in more than 30 seconds, go to previous page.
And there things stay. Going back to look at the firewall I can see the change haven't been applied, and going to apply just results in the same. No error, just no anything. It also took numerous attempts to get firewall modification to be swtich on although finally at about the eighth attempt changes were enabled. Only now I can't apply them ...
I am unable to disable or modify the firewall by using the plesk firewall extention. Plesk throw the two errors below:
Error: Could not disable firewall: util_exec(.., 'proc_open') failed: file does not exist or is not executable: /opt/psa/admin/bin/modules/firewall/register_service
Error: Could not activate firewall configuration: util_exec(.., 'proc_open') failed: file does not exist or is not executable: /opt/psa/admin/bin/modules/firewall/safeact I checked the symlinks, they point to the same location: /opt/psa/admin/bin/modules/firewall/mod_wrapper -r-s--x--- 1 root root 18896 Jun 6 10:37 mod_wrapper
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 had a old virtual Server with Ubuntu+Plesk12. I build a new dedicated Server with CentOS6+Plesk12 and migrate all Domains. Now i have a strange problem:
When i upload a file with FTP-User "user1", the file has the permissions Group=psacln & Owner=user1. All is fine, i can see and edit this file in a FTP-Program. But when my website create a file (cache html files or installed plugin folders in wordpress), I can't see, can't edit and can't download this files.
When i login to plesk with the admin account, i can see and edit this files. They have also Group=psacln & Owner=user1 and i can give them 0666 rights but when i login with FTP-User "user1" with my FTP-Program, I didn't see that files?!
Whenever I setup a new FTP user in Plesk and then configure my FTP client with exactly the same username and password and transfer files and folders onto the server then the file permissions allocated are incorrect. Folders get allocated a permission of 700 and files a permission of 600, whereas I want all folders to have a permission of 755 and files a permission of 644. How can I change my setup so that files and folders get the permissions I want ?
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 ?
How can I make it so only the system (scheduled task or the server itself) can access to the file to execute it. I tried placing CHMOD 700 to the PHP file but everyone is still able to access to it and executive it.
I've finally made the leap to upgrading from shared hosting to a VPS. I'm still setting up my configuration before I point the domain name to my new server, but for now, I have the site mirrored and I'm ensuring that all is running well. For the most part, everything is working, but I am running into a few permission issues...
As of right now, all the files in my htdocs directory are owned by root, and I am logging into my FTP client as root. However, I'm pretty sure that this is not how I should be doing this, because I need to allow write permissions to some folders from my php scripts.
I was just curious, how do you you guys set up the users and groups on your linux servers (running apache). I'm just not certain of the best way to handle it. Should I make a new FTP user, and if so, what group should it go in? Should that user be the owner of all the web files? When is it safe to set folder permissions to 777?
Does anyone know what could be the cause of this issue? I located a few others over at cpanel.net that have this problem, but no solution has been found.
I am running a VPS server with the following:
WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.9.1-S14304 RedHat 9 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0 phpMyAdmin - 188.8.131.52 MySQL client version: 4.1.10 mysql version: 5.0.27-standard
I have a database user that needs "Super Privileges" and so this was done. However, when Cpanel is updated the user permission is reset automatically from "ALL PRIVILEGES" to "USAGE".
Here's a look at the database permissions from phpMyAdmin.
Code: User Host Password Global privileges Grant hello localhost Yes ALL PRIVILEGES Yes hello_ % No ALL PRIVILEGES Yes hello_ localhost No ALL PRIVILEGES Yes
The user "hello" loses its "ALL PRIVILEGES" and switches over to "USAGE" if an update is triggered. Updates to cpanel, creating/removing a database/user, and updating the account password will cause the switch.
I want to use something like PHPBB forums and using one MySQL user and database. Just wondering, what are common user permissions I should set for the user? I want to try to minimize any permissions that can cause big risk to the server security.
Here is a full list of permissions I can grant to the user (via Webmin):
-Select table data -Insert table data -Update table data -Delete table data -Create tables -Drop tables -Grant privileges -Reference operations -Manage indexes -Alter tables -Create temp tables -Lock tables
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 ...
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 am trying to setup a cronjob but cPanel, (Linux Centos 5), tells me that user/bin/crontab permissions are incorrect and need to be changed to 4755 - I try to change permissions in WinSCP [Properties] but it doesn't 'take'.

My Pink Floyd website has a photo section of rare concert pictures that our members upload. We have about 3,000 of these pictures, that our members upload via an FTP server that is hosted on a simple cPanel web hosting account. Someone logged into the account and not only deleted all the pictures, but uploaded obscene pictures and index.html files to some really nasty stuff.
We delete all the obscene stuff, but before we re-upload all the pictures I need to know...
On a cPanel account is there a way to have the FTP User only able to upload files and not edit/delete/change? Somehow we can edit their permission?
I asked HostGator about this and the ChatTech said this cannot be done, and I was a bit surprised. I could easily do this on my own server, but i'm not sure where to start at the user level.
Is there any safe way to grant command line permissions to a user/specific account? One that only allows them access to databases on their account.
The problem is that this user intermittently runs queries that cause their database to hang (including PHPMyAdmin, so they can't view the processlist through there), and I have to manually kill that process, because they can't.
