Change Directory in Plesk


Hi...

I found this forum some days ago and are very good!
I have the Plesk 7 for windows...

But i have a little problem...
When i create one domain, the plesk put in C:\Inetpub\vhosts...

How i can configure to put the new domain in other partition?
Like e:\webpages

I must re-install plesk?IIS 6?
Or do something?

Help me please...

Regards

Plesk - Mulitple Drives

I am having the same problem.

The C: is too small and I want to host websites on another Drive.

The only thing that I found was that in IIS, under websites -> Properties -> Home Directories Tab you can specify a Local Path. I changed the path to another directory but it did not load the index.html file that I put in that directory.

Can anyone help?

Thanks

To change the home directories for Plesk web sites, you need to run the Plesk Reconfigurator (on the server that is hosting the site(s).

Go to: Start -> All Programs -> SWsoft Plesk

->Plesk reconfigurator -> Change Virtual Hosts location.



Plesk will create a folder called domainname/httpdocs for each website under the new home directory.

Place html content from old home directory to the new one.

Bringing back an old thread! Better then making a new one.

I would like to do this exact same thing, but on Linux/UNIX version of Plesk. Can anyone help me out?

alright... i just installed a new 8.1 plesk server on Freebsd 6.2

I setup my partitions as such
/dev/ad4s1e 1.9G 503M 1.3G 28% /home
/dev/ad4s1d 9.7G 2.8G 6.1G 31% /usr
/dev/ad4s1f 93G 4.0K 85G 0% /www

obviously I want to use the /www instead of the /usr partition.. I was thinking about just putting a lnk from /usr/local/www -> /www but am unsure about the plesk recognizing it..

also my disk quota isnt availible.. can i just recompile it into the kernel and plesk will automatically detect it?

thanks

Edit the fstab file and add userquota to the options, presuming option QUOTA is already compiled in your kernel.

As for moving your VHOST directory, use the transvhost.pl script in /usr/local/psa/bin to move them. Make sure your .skel directory is outside of the vhost directory, I had this problem and caused domains not be created correctly.

Edit: Is FBSD6.2 offically supported by 8.1 now?

I manually moved the files and it works i guess..

no official support for 6.2 but i already installed the server with 6.2 and didnt want to go back to my colo to reconfigure.. did some research and others are running .2 so I just gasthatbitch.com

well quota support is enabled for the /www partition but it still does not allow me to put a limit on domains in 8.1 ... going to set quota on /usr also to try that

nope that didnt work.
