The best places to check for Plesk problems are:
/var/log/sw-cp-server/error_log /usr/local/psa/admin/logs/panel.log /var/log/messages
Attention, The update of Parallels Panel has failed.
It's possible that Plesk may be completely inaccessible via the browser at this stage. The logs are located on the server at /tmp/autoinstaller3.log - it should say what has failed there.
You may wish to try running a repair on Plesk, using the following:
(the name of the '/pp10.13.4-bootstrapper/' directory may vary depending on the currently installed version).
If that command works then you should find that Plesk is available again - it'll be back to the version prior to the upgrade attempt.
If you then want to run the upgrade manually, you can do this using:
/root/parallels_installer --select-product-id=plesk --select-release-latest
Changing subscriber fails
If when you go to Hosting Services - Subscriptions > tick a domain > Change Subscriber > select the circular radio button next to the customer > click Next >> you get the below:
0: DNSZone.php:45 DNSZone->DNSZone(string '66') 1: common_func.php3:3262 objectMaker(string 'DNSZone', string '66') 2: DNSManager.php:29 DNSManager::getDNSZone(string '66') 3: chownerCheckForm.php:191 chownerCheckForm->_getCurrentIps(object of type PhDomain) 4: chownerCheckForm.php:55 chownerCheckForm->assign(object of type chowner) 5: chowner.php:59 require(string '/opt/psa/admin/htdocs/domains/chowner.php') 6: plesk.php:68
Remember the value in string '00'. This can happen due to No web hosting [add] in Websites & Domains. Then do:
mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` psa; select * from dns_zone\G
If the entry does not exist, you need to remove the subscription in Plesk. Make a note of the FTP username first and any Databases and their usernames. You can back the websites databases up by doing this in MySQL:
show databases; quit #then outside of MySQL mysqldump -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` databasename > databasebk.sql
Re-add the Subscription however you may get the error below:
Unable to update domain data: Domain::update failed: There is a domain alias with name www.domain.co.uk.
If not carry on. If you do get the error, do the following:
mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` psa; select * from domainaliases; +----+--------+-------------+--------+----------------------+----------------------+------+------+------+--------+ | id | dom_id | dns_zone_id | status | name | displayName | dns | mail | web | tomcat | +----+--------+-------------+--------+----------------------+----------------------+------+------+------+--------+ | 4 | 43 | 48 | 0 | www.domain.co.uk | www.domain.co.uk | true | true | true | false | #delete the entry delete from domainaliases where id=4;
And then try re-add the Subscription and assign it to the Customer/Subscriber you want to.
Creating domain fails
Internal Plesk error occurred: dnsmng::update() failed: dnsmng failed: dnsmng: Unable to open file "/var/lock/files/": No such file or directory. System error 2: No such file or directory dnsmng: Error occurred while locking the file /var/named/run-root/etc/named.conf System error 2: No such file or directory
cd /var/lock ; ls -lah
If the directory files does not exist, do:
Then restart bind using:
/etc/init.d/bind9 restart #or /etc/init.d/named restart
Normally the BIND configuration file, named.conf, does actually exist. Check by doing:
ls -lah /var/named/run-root/etc/named.conf
Try create a domain now, see what happens.
If you go into Plesk's file manager and try to create a directory within:
anon_ftp cgi-bin conf error_docs httpdocs pd private statistics subdomains web_users
You will get the error 'Unable to create directory //test: filemng: Error occurred during /bin/mkdir command'. This is because unless you go in via command line/RDC and create the folder manually or create a domain with the folder as it's document root it will not allow it.
Run this if the server is 10.1+:
/usr/local/psa/bin/server_pref -u -crontab-secure-shell "/bin/sh"
Default IP Address
If you are on Plesk 9 and within Settings > General - IP Addresses the IP Address is set to Exclusive or Shared and cannot be changed, SSH into the server and do:
mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow`; use psa select * from ip_pool; update ip_pool set type="shared"; #or update ip_pool set type="exclusive";
Plesk 11 uses "exclusive" in the database. I believe that no version of Plesk has ever called it "dedicated" in the database, even though in the Plesk web interface it calls them Dedicated.

"Failed to update Panel. You can send the update log to Parallels support to try fixing the issue. View the update log."
Run the autoinstaller and check this
IP Pool Empty
When trying to add a subscription and it comes back with the error "The IP Pool is empty" this means the IP/s under Tools & Settings > IP Address is/are set to Dedicated. It/they need to be switched to Shared.
/opt/psa/bin/ip_pool -u 0.0.0.0 -type shared -owner mydomains
Get the owner name from within:
- Main Menu - Clients
- Click the client under Client's name
- Account - Personal Data
- The owner is the entry in the Login* field.
You can try the following. Sometimes it breaks the IP addresses (setting it back will fix it if it breaks), sometimes it will work.
mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow`; use psa select * from ip_pool;
Then pick the entry you want to change from exclusive/dedicated to shared.
update ip_pool set type="shared" where id="3";
If you get the message "There are no resources of this type (domains) available from your Service Provider. Requested: 1; available: 0. The notification has been sent to your Service Provider." when trying to add a domain in bullet points above field, go to:
- Main Menu - Settings
- General - License Management
- Maximum number of domains will likely be a low number and you have a domain limit you are trying to exceed.
- Therefore you need to buy a new license key for Plesk.
Connection to host not available or migration agent is not running on the source host.
This can be caused because on the old VPS the Migration Agent is not running, this can be downloaded onto the server via RDP on Windows/cmd or using wget on Linux at:
- http://www.parallels.com/uk/download/plesk10.3/ (Check Notes for log
- Allow in Tools > Internet Options > Security > Trusted Sites (add parallels.com and *.parallels.com) for Windows
- Scroll to bottom of page
- Download the MSI (for Windows) or the TAR (for Linux)
- Ensure Firewall is off on old and new VPS
- Do not log off, just X the RDP session after Migration Agent is running.
Failed to upload the migration agent Cannot send scout to the remote host Lost connection with the remote host
NOTE: You can partly migrate from Linux to Windows but migration from Parallels Plesk Panel Windows to Parallels Plesk Panel UNIX is not supported.
Migration Manager uses SSH protocol for uploading of migration agents to source server and dump files retrieving. Make sure that:
1) SSH server is running and SSH (22) port is opened on the source server (you are performing the migration from),
2) SSH server on the source server allows connecting it with SSH version 2 protocol,
3) you are able to login from destination server to the source one via SSH under the user you specified during the migration. Also check that you can transfer a file from the source server to the destination Parallels Plesk Panel server with scp command.
Migrating from earlier versions of Plesk Panel, refer to: http://download1.parallels.com/Plesk/PPP9/Doc/en-US/plesk-9.2-migration-guide/index.htm?fileName=63282.htm Manual Migration: http://kb.parallels.com/1152

The below error normally affects Windows servers, and you should look in the following file to see if port=8306 and is referencing the right file paths:
Check Windows Firewall is not causing the issue by turning each one (or all) off and try Plesk, check if the Plesk SQL Service service can start/restart via Services.msc
Also check the third tab along to see if Plesk MySQL Server is ticked (under venet0).

If you get:
ERROR: PleskMainDBException MySQL query failed: Table 'psa.skins' doesn't exist
Check the directive in the my.cnf file on the server
lower_case_table_names = 1
The Plesk PSA database uses table names that start with a capital letter. With the above directive set to 1 (enabled) any queries are converted to lower case. As MySQL is case sensitive, this causes Plesk to look for a table called skins not Skins. Hence the failure. Disable the directive in the my.cnf file, restart the server and check the Plesk panel is up and running normally now. Ensure you do not change the directive or it will break again.
If you see the below error, look here:

New files of configuration for Apache web server were not built due to errors
If you get either:
New files of configuration for Apache web server were not built due to errors in configuration templates.
New web server configuration for some domains within the marked subscriptions was not built due to errors in configuration templates.
Check these links:
Panel Missing and Applications
Check these locations to check, start it or patch/update it:
netstat -nap | grep 8443 (to check for network activity on Plesk's port). If it is not there, rebuild the VPS.
The error "Update operation was locked by another update process" means you need to ps aux | grep auto and kill the processes and then run autoinstaller again. If the Applications are missing from the Applications tab, go to Tools and Settings > Application Vault > Clear Cache
When upgrading Plesk from 10.2 to 10.4.4 you may get: "There are customized DNS records with host equal host of existing subdomain, they will lost after upgrade to Plesk version above 10.4.4. Check http://kb.parallels.com/en/113310 for more details."

Internal error: Unable to find service node for web service on domain with id=7 Message Unable to find service node for web service on domain with id=7 File PhDomainBase.php Line 775 Type PleskDBException
Updating Plesk will NOT solve this problem.
If you get Plesk diagnostics on Plesk 9, restart sw-cp-server via SSH.
- Enable the following options in PRODUCT_ROOT_D/admin/conf/php.ini and restart psa: 'display_errors = On', 'log_errors = On'. Then check error messages in the log file /var/log/sw-cp-server/error_log
- Plesk's default root directory is /usr/local/psa/
- The file that declares the paths to be used by services and utilities is /etc/psa/psa.conf
- To change the default TCP port used to access Plesk change the value in /etc/sw-cp-server/applications.d/plesk.conf
- The directory containing the application packages used in Plesk Panel is $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/var/apspackages/
- The general psa database structure is in $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/etc/db/
- The DNS zone files for domains are stored in $NAMED_RUN_ROOT_D/var/
- You can restore the configuration of mail server and mail accounts via $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/admin/sbin/mchk
- To prevent users from running tasks on behalf of root, create one of the following files: $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/var/root.crontab.lock , $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/var/crontab.lock , $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/var/root.event_handler.lock , $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/var/event_handler.lock or $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/etc/root.psa_db.sql.lock
- GUI engine configuration file is in etc/sw-cp-server/applications.d/
Removing a domain/subscription shows Internal Server Error. Within /var/log/sw-cp-server/error_log it may show something like:
2012-07-05 09:39:09: (mod_fastcgi.c.2613) unexpected end-of-file (perhaps the fastcgi process died): pid: 10809 socket: unix:/usr/local/psa/tmp/sw-engine.sock-0 2012-07-05 09:39:09: (mod_fastcgi.c.3400) response not received, request sent: 2001 on socket: unix:/usr/local/psa/tmp/sw-engine.sock-0 for /admin/index.php?redirect=/subscription/list/, closing connection
This normally happens when you remove Hosting from a domain. Go into the domain, Websites & Domains tab, click Add next to the domain, select Website hosting, re-add a FTP user/password and click OK.
PMM stands for Plesk Migration Manager. It can use quite a bit of disk space. If a backup or restoration has been successfully completed and now all works (or is older than a few days) you can remove this data in /opt/psa/PMM ( /usr/local/psa/pmm/tmp ).
Plesk Application tab empty
Check the log file /var/log/sw-cp-server/error_log to see if it contains the following entry:
2011-07-14T15:30:26+01:00 ERR (3): APS Catalog error: Unable to define main IP address
Check if the IP addresses have the true or main attribute in Plesk Panel database:
mysql> select id, ip_address, main from IP_Addresses; +----+----------------+-------+ | id | ip_address | main | +----+----------------+-------+ | 1 | X.X.X.X | false | | 2 | X.X.X.X | false | +----+----------------+-------+
Identify main IP address on the server:
# ifconfig |grep eth0 -A1 eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0X:00:X0:00:00 inet addr:X.X.X.X Bcast:X.X.X.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 <===== -- eth0:0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0X:00:X0:00:00 inet addr:X.X.X.X Bcast:X.X.X.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
Mark it as that in IP_Addresses table:
mysql> update IP_Addresses set main="true" where ip_address="X.X.X.X";
1) Check how many applications there are in 'Application vault' under 'Tools & utilities'.
2) Check how many how are getting in the folder '/usr/local/psa/var/apspackages' eg:
[[email protected] apspackages]# ls apscataloglQLE2R.zipc739e4c9-5f6e-70 apscatalogSWLhgA.zipf66f54dc-9b23-f4
3) Move the packages you got from this folder, /usr/local/psa/var/apspackages, to some other location.
4) Then try to 'clear cache' in 'Application vault' under 'Tools & utilities'.
5) Then you will get error regarding some packages which are missing. eg:
Internal error: Cannot find package cache directory: '/usr/local/psa/var/apspackages/apscatalogSWLhgA.zipf66f54dc-9b23-f4'
6) Move those missing packages only to the folder location '/usr/local/psa/var/apspackages'.
For example 'apscatalogSWLhgA.zipf66f54dc-9b23-f4'
See the error in panel, Internal error: Cannot find package cache directory: '/usr/local/psa/var/apspackages/apscatalogSWLhgA.zipf66f54dc-9b23-f4'
7) After that 'clear cache' in 'Application vault' under 'Tools & utilities'. This will remove the temporary files.
Then the Applications will be available in the domain control panel without any issues.
If you get the following message:
Service Unavailable HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.
See this guide. Restart Plesk via services.msc and ensure the firewalls allow port 8843 through them.
SSO (Single Sign On)
If a Plesk login URL redirects to a relay or unusual URL, this is caused by the SSO service and configuration files which can be caused when the Customer Billing section is installed. To re/enable SSO use --enable in place of --disable below. To disable SSO use:
/usr/local/psa/bin/sso --disable #Windows: C:\>%plesk_dir%/bin/sso --disable #Server 2003: C:\Parallels\Plesk\bin\sso --disable #Server 2008: To be noted
Also try using the command to check encrypted/decrypted plesk password. It is advised NOT to manually configure hosts files as this can also cause conflicts, as within etc/hosts there is the relay to the URL it was taking you to. If you would like to ensure this does not cause issues simply change the URL within there to your VPS hostname. The SSO service has been disabled and now allows you to login to Plesk for your server at it's IP address.
The validity period of client account...
If you get this message in Plesk 9:
"The validity period of client account (Contact Name ) is about to expire. The client account and all of related domains will be deactivated by unless the validity period is prolonged."
Check via SSH with /usr/local/psa/bin/domain_pref -i domain.com | grep -i expir
To alter this, go into Plesk and go to:
- Tick the client you have been warned about
- Scroll to the bottom
- Set the Expiration date to Unlimited in the drop down box
- Click OK
If this doesn't work, do:
/usr/local/psa/bin/client_pref --update user -expiration year-mm-dd cd C:\Parallels\Plesk\bin client_pref.exe -u userwithnospaces -expiration YEAR-MM-DD

Webmail shows Parallels holding page
If this happens ensure mail in Change Settings is on, the webmail and mail DNS records go to the VPS and then attempt to go into Plesk' DNS settings. If it shows:

you need to recreate the subscription.
Websites & Domains tab is blank
Or it will show the below error:

Hostname -f or --fqdn, --long means long host name (FQDN) , from using hostname --help
Plesk will try to use your hostname to load parts of Plesk using a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) at domain.com:8880 over http, this in turn will try to redirect to IP:8443 or domain.com:8443 and will fail. In SSH if you do hostname -f and then ping the result, if this does not resolve you will get the error above.
To resolve this, go to either:
- Server Management > Tools & settings > General Settings > Server Settings > set Full hostname to a domain name
- Server tab > General Settings > Server Settings > set Full hostname to a domain name
