Plesk 7.1.6 and osCommerce (Application Vault)

Tuesday, February 1st, 2005

After installing osCommerce on a clients website, the osCommerce installation gave a number of errors. Searching the web and forums, let to the discovery that you have to have register_globals on and safe_mode off.

Add a vhost.conf file with the following entries:

<IfModule sapi_apache2.c>
php_admin_flag register_globals On
php_admin_flag safe_mode Off

and then reconfigure the webserver:

/usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng --reconfigure-vhost --vhost-name=<domainname>

and restart the webserver:

/usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng --restart

Plesk 7.1.6 and Dr. Web Antivirus

Tuesday, February 1st, 2005

We purchased the Dr. Web Antivirus solution for 2 of our Plesk 7.1.6 installations. When we recieved the key files, we were instructed to upload the keys via the Pleskcontrol panel.

Every time we tried, Plesk informed us that the file did not contain a valid key file.

To resolve the problem, we finally installed the key file manually, by copying the key file to the /opt/drweb/drweb32.key and then restarting Dr. Web using service drwebd restart.

The above solved the problem on both, a RedHat 9 and RHEL 3 box.

Plesk 7.0.3 for Windows & PASV FTP

Tuesday, February 1st, 2005

After playing with the defautl install of Plesk 7.0.3 for Windows we reliased that it does not support PASV FTP if you enable the Firewall. After a few minutes of searching, the solution was found.

You need to tell IIS to only use a certain range of ports for PASV FTP connections. Microsof provides the following knowledge base article on how to achive this: How To Configure PassivePortRange In IIS

After you have limited IIS to only use a certain port range, you have to configure the default firewall management file Plesk\admin\bin\pfwmng.js to listen on the TCP ports for incomming connections. Yes, this does mean adding each port seperated by a comma in this file. For more information please visit the followin link: Plesk Firewall question
