Search - "plesk"
Everytime I encounter cpanel or plesk
fuck that shit, I dont need that aids-software on any machine12
Customer: Pls install Plesk
me thinking about how I will regret saying yes to this, proceeding with saying - "yes"
Just got brain-aids
Cpanel and plesk is just two newly invented words that means the following:
"I am pretending to be a sysadmin"6
Client: After two weeks of silence. "Are we ready to launch?"
Me: "Yeah, sure!" Forgetting there's a half-finished refactor from two weeks ago.

Just wasted whole day with plesk webhosting :D
Decided to move to a DDOS protected hosting by OVH.com
Chose plesk web hosting
Turns out in order to park domain to plesk webhosting it's necessary to change GLUE records and nameservers to point to plesk VPS IP
My domain registrar where I have 10+ domains does not allow changing GLUE records. Only way to make it work would be to move all domains to new registrar and pay for each domain as it's a new one.
FML just wasted 16 euros on this useless plesk webhosting. Need to take regular webhosting :D3
Set up customer's e-mail addresses in Plesk. Worked fine in testing, all goes well for about a week.
Then their e-mail stops delivering. Stuff arrives, but outgoing messages either bounce or fail silently altogether. I contact 1&1 support, and they help set up SPF and DMARC on the domain, and then we wait and see once the DNS changes propagate.
Well, something about these changes caused my business e-mail (on a separate server) to exhibit the same problem now, when it had been working for 3 years without issue prior to that.
Check back with 1&1 2 days later to see why the first one isn't working; we verified all of the records across everything, tweaked a couple other things (like setting the full hostname in Plesk to mail.servername.com), and waited 2 more days.
Still having the same problem on both accounts. did a bit of looking up the issue for Plesk and found that in order for SPF/DMARC to work, they have to be activated on the Plesk-wide mail settings, and then again individually at the domain level.
Made these changes on my business e-mail's server and domain and it fixed the problem!
Made the same changes on the server with the customer's domain and...still seeing the same issue.
Have checked all settings between them and they're identical. All the appropriate DNS records are in place. I'm kind of at a loss for waht else to check at this point.1
PCI DSS scan came back saying that WebDAV extensions need to be disabled. Kind of surprised, since I have other servers I’ve configured to standard and I can’t find anything in my notes about it.
In either case, been searching for info on how to fix it for 2 days and turned up nothing useful. Report found it on ports 80 and 443, so a firewall fix seems out here.
Running Plesk 17.5.3 on CentOS 7. Anyone have any pointers on how to get the job done?4
Quick Plesk config question...
Been getting open_basedir() notices in the WordPress logs, and frankly it's flooding the log right now. Sample below:
[24-Feb-2019 07:05:19 UTC] PHP Warning: file_exists(): open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/var/www/vhosts/webspacedomain.com/SiteInstallDirectory/wp-content/db.php) is not within the allowed path(s): (/var/www/vhosts/webspacedomain.com/:/tmp/) in /var/www/vhosts/webspacedomain.com/SiteInstallDirectory/wp-includes/load.php on line 397
Checking the settings for open_basedir in the domain's PHP settings, it's currently set to the following default value:
By my read, that **should** be granting permission to the directory. I just checked it against the setting on the dev server (which doesn't report this error), and it's configured in the same manner. Only difference between Dev environment and this one is that the one in Dev is in vhosts/webspacedomain.net/DEV instead of just vhosts/webspacedomain.net
Is there something I'm missing here?4
