Apache and Nginx Configuration Files

Apache configuration files

All Plesk-specific Apache configuration files are included in the Apache system configuration (/etc/httpd/httpd.conf by default) via file zz010_psa_httpd.conf using the Include directive. The file zz010_psa_httpd.conf can be located in /etc/apache2/conf.d/ or /etc/httpd/conf.d/ depending on the operating system.

The following table represents the hierarchy of Apache configuration files.

/etc/httpd/conf/plesk.conf.d/wildcards/@<domain_name>.conf -> /var/www/vhosts/system/_<domain_name>/conf/last_httpd.conf

 

On this diagram:

 

- System configuration file.

 

- Files generated by Plesk.

 

- Files generated by Plesk from configuration templates.

 

- Files created by user and containing custom configuration directives.

File file_sharing.conf is not generated, but shipped with Plesk.

Files from siteapp.d/*.conf are shipped with corresponding APS packages.

The placeholder <domain_name> is the domain name of the website for which the configuration is generated.

nginx configuration files

All Plesk-specific nginx configuration files are included in the nginx system configuration (/etc/httpd/nginx.conf) via file zz010_psa_nginx.conf using the Include directive. The file zz010_psa_nginx.conf is located in /etc/nginx/conf.d/.

The following table represents the hierarchy of nginx configuration files.

/etc/nginx/nginx.conf

 

 

/etc/nginx/conf.d/zz010_psa_nginx.conf
