Hello, I'm in need of some assistance to compile PHP gd.so module with WebP support on my server.

I started following the instruction provided here:

https://talk.plesk.com/resources/how-to-compile-php-gd-so-module-with-webp-support.4/

The original instructions refer to PHP version 7.1.11 however, I changed mine to 7.2.13 which is the current version on my Plesk Server.

This is the result of the first 2 commands so far, and I had to stop because I saw the packages required were not available. I didn't want to continue because I don't want to break my current PHP version, but I need PHP gd.so module with WebP support on my server.

Could somebody please take a look and give me so guidance? Should I continue?


yum install make gcc plesk-php72-devel libjpeg-turbo-devel libpng-devel libXpm-devel freetype-devel libwebp-devel

wget http://be2.php.net/get/php-7.2.13.tar.gz/from/this/mirror

[root@web ~]# yum install make gcc plesk-php72-devel libjpeg-turbo-devel libpng-devel libXpm-devel freetype-devel libwebp-devel

Hi, I was wondering if someone could please help me figure out a way to change the template's theme name as shown below, on the urls in the head section of my site without actually renaming the folders/directories on the template itself.

If I were to rename the folders on the actual template structure, everything would break, and even if it didn't, the automatic theme updates would not work, and for that reason, I need to figure out a way to mask, or rewrite the urls without breaking the theme template.

I have been searching online for a way to do this on my server, but no luck so far. Please help.

<link href="/templates/template-name/css/theme.9.css?v=1537979830" rel="stylesheet" id="theme-style-css" />
      <link href="/templates/template-name/css/theme.update.css?v=1.15.7" rel="stylesheet" id="theme-style-update-css" />
      <script src="/media/jui/js/jquery.min.js"></script>
      <script src="/media/jui/js/jquery-noconflict.js"></script>

      <script src="/templates/template-name/js/theme.js?v=1.15.7"></script>

My server configuration is as follows:

Before I post my question, please be aware that I am not very familiar with this stuff so please be gentle with me!

I have my store website hosted on Debian OS 8.11 with Plesk Onyx 17.8.11. I got a warning from Jetpack this morning that my website was down so I tried to load it and got a 502 bad gateway error.

When I logged into Plesk, I see this message:

"New configuration files for the Apache web server were not created due to the errors in configuration templates: Can not restart web server: . Detailed error descriptions were sent to you by email. Please resolve the issues and click here to generate broken configuration files once again or here to generate all configuration files. See the details in Configuration Troubleshooter"

I try generating new configuration files but no success. I then get this email in my inbox.

Template_Exception: Can not restart web server:
file: /opt/psa/admin/plib/Service/Driver/Web/Server/Apache.php
line: 109

I am not sure what to do next..Please help!

Thanks in advance.

I look after a website that is hosted on EUKHost. I do not have access to the server, my only level of access is via a Plesk web host edition portal.

Up to yesterday the site was working fine, but today I am getting the following error:

This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.InvalidOperationException: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.


I have already done some research, and found that this is normally fixed by adding the following into web.config:

<machineKey validationKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" decryptionKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" validation="3DES" decryption="3DES"/>

However this was already in the <system.web> section of the web.config file.

I have also tried changing

<pages>

to

<pages enableEventValidation="false" viewStateEncryptionMode="Never">

but this didn't help either.

Many solutions involve changing a registry key to turn the checking off, but this obviously isn't an option for this site, as I don't have access to the underlying server.


Any ideas?

I am running a Windows 2016 server with Plesk and as part of the Plesk statistics I am able to capture the bandwidth of each hosted website and produce monthly reports.

Is there a way in which I can capture average CPU usage of websites and produce reports in a similar manner? I can only do so in real time but I would like this captured for use in my monthly reports. Perhaps an ideal statistic is to log how many times the CPU goes over a specific percentage CPU threshold.

Hello,

I currently have a VPS with RDP at my provider CWH, but my domains are with GoDaddy with A-Records pointing to CWH; and Emails with Microsoft Exchange.  Whenever I need to create a subdomain, I first log into GoDaddy create a new A-Record, then log into Plesk at CWH and create my sub domain there.  

As I’m releasing anew service, I’m hoping to automate this, so I had the following questions.

1.      Can I host my own DNS on my VPS? I

a)      If yes, could I use an API or SDK to create and delete A-Records?

b)      If no, do you know if GoDaddy or another provider has such interface?

2.      Within Plesk, or IIS directly, how can I Create/Suspend/Delete subdomains… again by code? Plesk is PHP-based, so there must be a way.

Obvoiusly my VPS is IIS, but can get Linux.

Any advice would be appreciated.

How to block outgoing SMTP-connections from one IP on a Linux server.

Scenario:
I have a Linux server (Running Plesk) with 2 IP's
IP1 is used for website
IP2 is used for mail

I want to block users from creating script to send mail directly (spam).
All mail are supposed to be send via the mailserver on IP2

In the Plesk Firewall, I can block incoming connections on ex. port 25, but not (as far as I can see) outgoing.

I found this suggestion:
iptables -I OUTPUT -m owner ! --uid-owner postfix -m tcp -p tcp --dport 25 -j REJECT


How can this be done?

Which Control Panel is Better For WordPress - Plesk VS cPanel
I'm considering switching over to Plesk (linux). Is there a cPanel Wordpress toolkit? The reason is that all my clients are all Wordpress users and so I'm considering to make this switch. Your thoughts?

I have Plesk Onyx Version 17.8.9 on a Windows 2016 server.

I would like to use the Plesk Backup Manager to ONLY backup all MS SQL 2016 databases within a Subscription. I do not want to include any site files, just the MS SQL databases. The backup options only allow for User files and databases but not just the databases.

If this cannot be done within Plesk then it would be appreciated if you can show how it can be done using other means such as a batch file command or from MS SQL Server Management Studio.

Hi,

I am curious if it is a security risk to keep internal files within the same level of the accessible directory. I am using Plesk to manage my server.

Plesk sets up the directory structure as such
  1. vhost
    1. example.com
      1. error_docs
      2. http
      3. logs

Within the example.com directory, the http directory is accessible to the public via www.example.com

i have added additional directories within the example.com directory to keep everything in the same spot. The additional folders contain sensitive information.

I know that these folders are not directly accessible to standard users but im curious if i should move them up the directory hierarchy so i only have the public http directory.  Or is this something i dont have to even worry about

Hi, I need some help installing OpenSSH-7.6.p1 in my Linux Server. My current configuration is Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6.9 (Santiago)‬ with Plesk Onyx Version 17.5.3.

Up until a few days ago, I was running OpenSSH-7.5.p1 for the entire last year, and then I tried to upgrade to the latest version.  I realized I had OpenSSL 1.0.1 and the installation required OpenSSL-1.1.0g, so I went ahead and tried to install it, but when I ran "make test" after the installation as indicated here: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/postlfs/openssl.html  I ran into some errors and I ran "yum update" and that reversed my OpenSSH-7.5.p1 back to version 5.3.

I have been trying to get back to a new installation but when I install OpenSSL-1.1.0g and run the "make test" command, I guest the following output (attached). I know I need to correct this first before I can even proceed to install OpenSSH. Please help.

Thanks

Jorge.

While Plesk offers many potential benefits to website administrators, including compatibility with Windows Server and other leading technologies, the company has also been working to differentiate it from other control panels for content management system (CMS) users. The headline product of those efforts is the Plesk WordPress Toolkit, a comprehensive integration which organizes and simplifies many processes for setting up and maintaining WordPress websites. The toolkit is widely used, and is installed on almost two-thirds of Plesk servers, according to a ZNetLive blog post.


WordPress is the world’s most popular CMS, and powers a staggering 28.5 percent of all sites on the internet, for a market share of nearly 60 percent according to w3techs. It is used by bloggers, entrepreneurs, small businesses, media companies, and enterprises to grow their audiences and engage with customers.


There are two versions of the Plesk WordPress Toolkit available. The SE (Special Edition) version is included with Plesk Web Admin Edition, and meant for use by site and server administrators. The full version is included with Plesk Web Pro Edition and Plesk Web Host Edition. The difference is that some of the advanced features in the full edition, such as cloning and syncing instances and staging environments are not included in WordPress Toolkit SE. With the special edition, updates are manual rather than automatic, and while the Toolkit does include 1-click hardening (more on that below), it only does so for instances which it has been used to install.


The Plesk WordPress Toolkit is designed for easy installation and use. It takes two clicks to install WordPress; one to choose the “Domains” menu under “Hosting Services,” and one on “Install WordPress,” toward the left side of the Domains options. The Toolkit is found on the “Extensions” page, which is seen under “Server Management” on the menu.  There it is the first option among the “Featured” extensions on the right side of the window.


Security


There are several key security features of the toolkit, including 1-click hardening through the security check feature. Hardening is defined by the University of Colorado’s Office of Information Technology as a process which “works to eliminate means of attack by patching vulnerabilities and turning off inessential services. Hardening a computer involves several steps to form layers of protection.”


In the Plesk WordPress Toolkit, hardening improves security by applying concepts like the “least privilege principle” and “defense in depth,” testing a number of known and potential attack vectors, reducing risks and attack surface, and layering controls.



To check WordPress security in Plesk Onyx Web Pro Edition, click “WordPress” under “Server Management” in the menu on the left side of the screen, and then from the “Installations” tab selecting those instances that should be checked, or all. When the user clicks “Check Security,” Plesk scans for the WordPress characteristics that hackers most often use in attacks on websites, such as a label indicating which release of WordPress the website uses, the default “wp_” prefix for database tables, and the privileged default “admin” username.


In addition to assessing each element as secure or in need of attention, the tool also identifies those changes that can be rolled back, and those that may affect plugin performance.


The security check can also be activated from the “Domains” page under “Hosting Services” in the side menu. Clicking on a domain name brings up the option in the “My CMS” section of the window.


Auto-Updates


Updating WordPress versions and plug-ins is critical to maintaining website performance and security, but can be time consuming and sometimes difficult to keep up with for administrators.



Like “Check Security,” “Auto-Update” is found toward the top of the “Installations” tab on the WordPress toolkit page. This brings up a page with options for setting up automated major and minor updates, only minor updates, or turning off auto-update for each or every WordPress instance.


Management Features


The Plesk WordPress Toolkit also integrates most common management functions.

Just like “Installations,” the Toolkit simplifies management of plugins and themes by giving them their own tab, with each allowing administrators to install and uninstall, activate, deactivate, and update them.



The full version also includes several advanced management functions. Websites can be switched to maintenance mode to make changes, debugging tools are available for testing and development, and search engine indexing can be turned off or limited.


Many Other Features


There are numerous other tools and integrations in the Plesk WordPress Toolkit. Along with the quick and easy installation of WordPress instances described above, migrating and cloning instances is simplified, with buttons found by scrolling to the far right of each installation. Administrators can choose to synch files, databases, or both.

Other advanced functions in the full version of the toolkit include a staging environment for testing and development in an exact copy of your production environment.


Reducing Problems, Saving Time


The same motivations that lead website owners and administrators to choose WordPress are reasons to use the Plesk WordPress Toolkit. WordPress allows its users to present their content in an attractive, effective, secure and customized way without developing it from scratch, providing a high level of functionality. Site changes are made according to business needs, rather than according to IT production cycles and capability.


Administrators, resellers and customers love the wide range of sites they can create, and plugins they can customize them with. Making changes that are simple for a single site may be time consuming and complex for those running multiple sites, however. Managing WordPress functions from within the control panel with the Plesk WordPress Toolkit extends the ease of use it is famous for, and provides Plesk hosting customers with the tools to make the most of the leading content management system.
