If you find that the /etc/hosts file getting over written (I have found this happening in Virtuzzo and HyperVM servers already) ensure that you add the additional entries above the following comment line which you see in /etc/hosts file.
# Auto-generated hostname. Please do not remove this comment.
When attempting to log into Plesk Control Panel the following error is displayed:
Unable to connect to database: saved admin password is incorrect. 0: C:\\Program Files\\SWsoft\\Plesk\\admin\\auto_prepend\\auth.php3:56 psaerror(string “Unable to connect to database: saved admin password is incorrect.”)
Such problem occurs when password of admin in Plesk does not match the one set in Plesk database in MySQL.Please find all the steps below:Retrieve the current password using the command as below:
1. Then it needs to be configured within Plesk MySQL, following the steps below:
- Edit MySQL configuration file my.ini located in %plesk_dir%\mysql\data\.
- Add the skip_grant_tables=1 parameter into the [PleskSQLServer] section.
- Restart the Plesk SQL Server service.
2. Log into Plesk MySQL. %plesk_dir%\mysql\bin\mysql.exe -P8306 mysql
Execute the following query: update mysql.user set password=password('current_password') where user='admin';
3. Remove skip_grant_tables=1 from within the [PleskSQLServer] section within %plesk_dir%\mysql\data\my.ini
4. Restart service Plesk SQL Server.
The password should have been assigned.
Note: For the latest Plesk versions in case of MSSQL using as db provider, please use the following KB to change passwod for user admin (replace sa with admin in mssql query).
How do I repair/rebuild all Qmail configuration files and restore settings for all mailboxes?
This can be done with Plesk mchk utility:
–without-spam – restore all settings except for SpamAssassin configuration
–with-spam – restore all settings
–spam-only – restore only SpamAssassin settings
This utility rebuilds in line with Plesk database Qmail control files in the /var/qmail/control, /var/qmail/users directories and mail users’ settings. Also, it sets proper ownership/permissions for all mailboxes (/var/qmail/mailnames/*).

One Time License Update
As of today, July 11, 2008, cPanel will no longer be offering One Time Licenses.
