Gosh ... Plesk is getting less and less in my favor, and the uninstall button more and more. The last few days, when I had to tweak some more advanced options of Apache, Plesk has let me down completely. It mingles too much with the OS. Way too much I think.
Plesk, as all of you know (right?
) now supports Mod_Perl. Not a bad thing, of course not. But it gets bad when you buy a $1700 script that can only run with Mod_Perl shut off. First thing you'd do is try shutting down Mod_Perl for 1 vhost. Well, no way Plesk is allowing that. Since all of our sites run on php/mysql anyways (we got no ad script in that combo because there are no good ones around) I thought it would be pretty okay to shut down Mod_Perl completely, since the script is *very* important, if not vital, to us. And now finding out this seems to be impossible has made me mad ... apparently those settings have been crammed in the Plesk database, and it cannot be changed. Well spank me hard and call me Charly, but that's unacceptable! I wanna decide myself what I run! When I buy Plesk, I buy Plesk, a control panel (or so I thought) ... and now finding out its roots are really too deep into the OS to have any good, makes me mad... but uninstalling Plesk on the other hand will leave my customers without a CP they want ... in a last desperate attempt (since Plesk support it too tacky and I really need this done over the weekend), does anyone_have_any_idea how to solve this? Really, this thing has completely got me down ...
Can you be my saviour?
Thanks for reading this part-vent, part-helpless, part-problematic post, and have a great weekend
