Linux Malware Detect, Debian, and Plesk

Package installation The easiest way to install Linux Malware Detect will be to use a package. Jan Wagner has put a lot of effort into debianising LMD so a big shout out to him (his Github repo). I merely built the package from the repo. So without further ado, here is the download. maldetect_1.4.2+dfsg-13_all.deb Manual installation Linux Malware Detect will not run out of the box in monitor mode (scan mode works fine) on a Debian system. There are a few things you need to do to get it working. LMD comes with a 32-bit inotifywait binary and associated libinotifytools library. Debian Wheezy will […]

Fixing and removing corrupted Apache configs in Plesk

Today I ran into an interesting problem with Plesk. It had gotten it’s Apache configuration so messed up that when you ran httpdmng reconfigure for any domain, it would throw errors about not being able to find include files. For example: apache2: Syntax error on line 227 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Syntax error on line 7 of /etc/apache2/conf.d/zz010_psa_httpd.conf: Syntax error on line 15 of /opt/psa/admin/conf/generated/14099869670.15839100_horde.include: Syntax error on line 56 of /opt/psa/admin/conf/webmail_horde_bootstrap.conf: Could not open configuration file /opt/psa/admin/conf/generated/14099802590.70236400_domain_com_webmail.include: No such file or directory The fix for this involves some MySQL work. Go into the “psa” database in MySQL. You’ll see a “Configuration”

Merging Plesk subscriptions

Update: 18/08/2020 Plesk Obsidian is now able to move domains between subscriptions thus negating the need for any external scripts. Please use this in built function instead. Keeping this article for posterity. This article could have been called “Merging domains from one subscription to another” or “Moving domains between subscriptions”. But its goal remains the same. If you’re arrived at this page then you probably already know what you’re looking for.

Unable to remove customer/subscription

When trying to remove a customer or subscription, you may get this error message in Plesk: Unable to find service node for web service on domain with id=xxx This was supposed to be fixed in 10.4.4 MU #13 but isn’t in all cases. I hit this error and the cause turned out to be because the subscription had no IP address assigned to it. To fix this, go into the Hosting Settings of the subscription. Select an IP address, you’ll also have to reset the password. Once you do this, you should be able to remove the customer and subscription.

Parallels Panel key update deferral notification

Updated 06/02/2012 For just under a year now i’ve been getting a daily mail from the Plesk daily maintenance script titled Parallels Panel key update deferral notification With the following in the body of the message.
