Plesk Repair Utility: File System

Using the Plesk repair utility with the fs aspect checks integrity and structure of the file system. It is possible to check the system files (which are critical for Plesk) and/or the virtual hosts' files on the server. You can also specify individual domains to check the specified domains' files only.

Note: This aspect is applicable to Plesk on Linux only.

The repair utility with the fs aspect allows you to detect and fix the following problems:

  • Unexpected files or directories owners.
  • Unexpected files or directories permissions.
  • Unexpected files or directories extended attributes.

In addition, the absence of mandatory files or directories can be detected (but not fixed).

The following options are specific to this aspect:

  • -system – Check only the system files. The checks are made for a number of system files that may be critical for Plesk work.
  • -vhosts – Check only the virtual hosts’ files.

If none of these options is used, both the system files and the virtual hosts’ files are checked.

If the individual domain is specified, then the files will be checked for this domain only. If any other options (-system, -vhosts) are used in this case, they will be ignored.

Examples:

  • plesk repair fs - Check both the virtual hosts' files and the system files on the server.
  • plesk repair fs -vhosts - Check only the virtual hosts' files on the server.
  • plesk repair fs –system - Check only the system files on the server.
  • plesk repair fs example.com - Check the files of the example.com virtual host only.
  • plesk repair fs example.com -vhosts  - Check the files of the example.com virtual host only. In this case the –vhosts option is ignored.
  • plesk repair fs –system –v –n - Give the detailed information about any detected issues of the system files, but do not resolve them.
