Linking PHP as an Apache HTTPD module makes them inseparable. This is not without problems: Indeed, many PHP libraries aren't threadsafe, so it's essential to use the prefork-mpm module for HTTPD 2.x in production to implements a non-threaded, pre-forking web server that handles requests in a manner similar to HTTPD 1.3. But this approach strongly affects ...

Most shared hosting providers have a control panel. Most control panels allow you to change file permissions through some sort of file manager. Windows uses a different way of doing permissions to Unix servers, so you may need to give read/write permission to a user called IUSR_machinename for Wordpress to work properly. For Plesk it's: Websites & ...

There are a couple of ways to do this: One way is to unsuspend it and then move all the site files into a subdirectory. That means that every page will return a 404 error. You then edit your custom error page for that error to show the users the custom page. Or you can put it in maintenance mode and edit your 503 custom error page.

Plesk is pretty good about setting up the proper security settings between domain accounts and subdomains, including FTP access. Many sites do grant FTP access to 3rd parties that they work with because there's not as much risk with FTP, providing that root access isn't permitted, which can be set in Plesk (as it seems you already have done). I would ...

You can have full functioning site preview starting from Plesk 10.4 (PHP, Javascript and whatever else you need). It needs to be enabled on the server - so if in shared hosting, you will depend on you hosting provider. Checkout "Setting up Website Preview" for details. You will need some DNS zone for previews though... You may also be interested in "staging ...

I think Plesk includes only one NS in default template, because Plesk itself serves as NS server by default and second NS is supposed to be pointing at another machine (though it is commonly tricked). Unless a hosting provider configures it for you (which they are supposed to do), you can have two choices: (trick) Give your Plesk server one more name ...

for other's reference, the site builder link is hidden if your license does not support the "power pack" (godaddy, may be named different under different providers). You can view your license by going to server -> license management simply look for websites by web presence builder, if the value is limited to 0, you need to talk to your provider. Godaddy's ...

It is very simple to generate self signed certificate..here is the forum post citing this details http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?33510-How-to-Create-Self-signed-SSL-Certificate-for-Dummies It's simple. Log in as the admin, go to "server", then "certificate". Fill in the information and press "self signed". Then you should wait a minute or so ...

You can use a self-signed certificate in this case. If you are using a shared IP, you will still have to purchase a dedicated IP for your website. Self-signed certificates can be used but the problem with them is that your visitors will see a warning regarding the website while browsing the website. Personally, I would suggest you to get an SSL ...

If somebody can put content onto a subdomain, they can read and modify any cookies of visitors that are set to the root domain. They could damage your reputation by posting items at that subdomain that you would not approve of, but which would look like they came from you. Most of the consequences of a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability are ...

That folder is created by default when they set your account on that server. You can make a search on your favourite search engine and you'll find many people talking about that. So don't worry about it. By the way, GoDaddy, and anybody else, doesn't matter the size or reputation, is vulnerable to attacks. But you are right thinking that they know who to ...

Consider... bar.example.com. CNAME foo.example.com. foo.example.com. A 192.0.2.23 Here, when a DNS resolver encounters a CNAME record while looking for a regular resource record, it will restart the query using the canonical name instead of the original name. That is when an A record lookup for bar.example.com is done, the resolver ...

Make sure the IP you put into your host file is the one Plesk is actually using. This is an easy mistake to make if your server has multiple IP addresses. Also, make sure you put www.domain.com and not just domain.com in your host file. It will need to match exactly to what you wish to test with. If you have a later version of Plesk with the Nginx proxy. ...

take a small test as well to check if the directory exists with the following: if( !file_exists($upload_path) ){ exit('Directory not Found!'); } the super global variable $_FILES also has the size of the file $_FILES['userfile']['size'] to check the following link to know more about the $_FILES

It looks like a permission or setting at fault which you clearly know already, Check that /var/www/vhosts/denkproducties.nl/httpdocs/denkproductives/ does indeed. Furthermore Apache looks like its running on the user account Apache so while doing a 777 a CHMOD on the folder you want writtable you might find that Apache got get into a parent folder due to ...

When configuring a new subscription, the IP Address is available in a dropdown to me. We only have one IP on our Plesk 11 server, but it appears I can configure a new IP under: Tools & Settings Tools & Resources IP Addresses. This is all controlled via the Administrator account. The documentation ...

There are a few workarounds for manually accessing the file. Plesk has an outline on a few advanced methods in an article from their Knowledge Base. If you are on a Mac, the third-party "Stuffit" application is capable of reading these files. They offer a free version with basic functionality. There is a Windows version of Stuffit as well, however, it does ...

you can directly restore your Plesk backup using the backup sections and all your files and databases will get restored automatically. In case the automatic backup restoring fails, just create the site and databases manually, copy the files via FTP or File manager and import the databases via PhpMyadmin tool.

Cloudfront is a CDN. It will pull content from your EC2 server (or any other server) to multiple geographic locations around the us. Its only purpose is to speed up your site. It really only works properly for static content. (JavaScript, images, CSS). You can't move all your www data from EC2 to Cloudfront. If your www data is all static, (which in ...

If you use Plesk there is usually a server section where you can configure which Apache modules should be activated. "rewrite" or "mod_rewrite" is the one to activate. Then it depends on your software or scripts to make actually use of this module. [Edit] Do you have the url rewrite extension available or can it be installed? See ...

I've struggled myself upgrading from Plesk 8 to version 10.x.x, and would highly recommend first performing a full backup under Tools & Settings, and then using the Plesk Migration Tool versus manually copying files yourself, since Plesk stores many settings inside databases. In most cases, it's a completely automated and transparent process, with no ...

It probably would go easier if you run Plesk Migration and Transfer Manager from your Plesk 10 installation (in "Tools and Settings" menu) and make it moving all content from your old server to the new one. The tool shall put all files in appropriate locations. If you still want to move files manually, then just be sure all your subdomain docroot folders ...

Plesk grabs HTTP stats from access_log file of Apache. As I understand there is no way to put incoming HTTP traffic in access_log. Even if I upload huge file to the server, access_log would only report a size of server response, but not a size of incoming request. So incoming HTTP traffic cannot really be tracked through Plesk. You would need some additional ...

This is not supported natively in Plesk, but you can probably make a workaround if you have root access (assuming you are on Linux) or can contact your hosting provider for this trick. Create another user (i.e. "protector") and transfer directory ownership to him useradd protector chown protector dir/ Then change directory rights so that only file owner ...

What do you think the problem is? No idea, you provided almost no useful information. But when I try to browse there it doesn't work Please define doesn't work. For example do you get an error about the Domain not existing? Perhaps try using nslookup or some tool to verify that the DNS records for the domain was created properly. What happens ...

All you should need to do is change the nameservers for the domain name to point to your new server. This may require changing the nameservers completely or just changing the A records for the domain name. If you set the domain name up properly on the new server through Plesk then once the DNS change has propagated you should be able to see the site on your ...

No. It is actually a bit more complicated then that. As far as I understood the question, when Apache is treating a request it loads all the PHP library (in case of PHP as Apache Module). Even when executing a static ressource request. So it consumes a lot of memory. The other solution is a light weighted front httpserver. It will executes static request ...

A few other notes: you must have root ssh access enabled on your DV 3.5 for the migration to work as listed If you have modified the ssh access port, you must change it on the migration page regardless of what MT says. When I ran my DV 3.5, we had this disabled and it took quite awhile to realize what the hangups were.

So tried to do all this with the documentation, but it is lacking in detail and accuracy. Plus, all the error messages their applications return are worthless. Oh, and I have to say that this is the last time I embark on a project with Plesk. Instead, my support folks had to unpack (untar?) the files so I could access this XML file. ...

if you are suing Plesk on the windows server, try to do the following via remote desktop: "%plesk_bin%\ftpmng.exe --remove-vhost -vhost-name=domain.com "%plesk_bin%\ftpmng.exe --reconfigure-vhost -vhost-name=domain.com Thus , your domain will get deleted from the server configuration and will be added buy the second command to the server.
