Changing Paths to Services
Plesk uses various external components, for example, Apache web server, mail service, antivirus, and so on. When interacting with these components, Plesk gets the information on their locations from the configuration file
Plesk configuration file provides an easy way of reconfiguring Plesk if a service is installed into another directory or migrated from the current partition to another. Note that you can only modify paths present in this file; other paths are hard-coded in Plesk components.
Each line of
psa.conf has the following format:
<<strong class="placeholder">variable_name</strong>> <<strong class="placeholder">value</strong>>
A sample part of the
psa.conf file is displayed below. To change a path to a service, utility, or package, specify the new path as a value of a corresponding variable.
# Plesk tree PRODUCT_ROOT_D /usr/local/psa
# Directory of SysV-like Plesk initscripts PRODUCT_RC_D /etc/init.d
# Directory for config files PRODUCT_ETC_D /usr/local/psa/etc
# Directory for service utilities PLESK_LIBEXEC_DIR /usr/lib/plesk-9.0
# Virtual hosts directory HTTPD_VHOSTS_D /var/www/vhosts
# Apache configuration files directory HTTPD_CONF_D /etc/httpd/conf
# Apache include files directory HTTPD_INCLUDE_D /etc/httpd/conf.d
# Apache binary HTTPD_BIN /usr/sbin/httpd #Apache log files directory HTTPD_LOG_D /var/log/httpd
#apache startup script HTTPD_SERVICE httpd
# Qmail directory QMAIL_ROOT_D /var/qmail
Important: Be very careful when changing the contents of
psa.conf. Mistakes in paths specified in this file may lead to Plesk malfunctioning.
