Plesk Automation :: Change Of Permissions For User
Jul 2, 2014
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?
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?
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
when I find the subscription from the admin side of PPA, if I select "Login as user" I've noticed that it is different from actually logging in as the user - for example - "add domain alias" is missing when I login as a customer - but not as an admin... I need my customers to add their own aliases and manage them - how do I add that feature to the client login side?
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'd want to create a user and set custom privileges using the standard mysql-client, ie. create user and grant privileges, but I know that sometimes Plesk overwrites my config files for other services.
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.
we have identified a number of customers with weak passwords - we wish to send them an email and then wait 1 hour - then change their passwords to the new password we have identified - due to them being across multiple domains, we don't want to do this via the PPA web gui - it would take quite a long time.
What is/are the commands for changing mailbox password for SMTP/IMAP/POP3??
i.e., is there a PPA command for changing both sides of send/receive?
after learning that server aliases are not available for PPA, we are needing to rename our service nodes. We have looked through the documentation, and did see the ppa.hostname command for the management node but there does not seem to be an equivalent for service nodes.
Is it possible to disable the option to change the system user (FTP/SSH) for customers. I can disable this for the control panel user but not the system user (FTP/SSH). Is there any option to do this that I didn't see?
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 want to move the data directory to another partition on all nodes. Apache (vhost), IIS (vhost), MySQL (databases) and Postfix (mailbox content). What's the correct way to do this without breaking functionality of PPA?
We have a website under httpdocs/. We can change/delete files with a ftp user : "ftpold". All is ok. We must create another ftp access for another company which can access only to httpdocs directory (not to logs/, error_docs/...).
So we have create a ftp access in Plesk. But with this ftp connexion, we can not update/delete files ou update rights.
So we decide to change rights on the files/directories under httpdocs with the new ftp access :
httpdocs# chown -R ftpnewsacln *
The is no errors but the files:directories are always with the old ftp user :
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
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?
