    Hi, I have installed plesk 7.5 reloaded. Everything went fine untill when the installation gave me an error saying conflict with some other file. However the installation finished. And now when i am trying to connect to the localhost at port 8443 it dosent connect. What could be the problem? Can anyone let me know.
    The exact error i get when attempting to connect is " The connection was refused when attempting to contact "

    The localhost is your machine.

    Did you install plesk on your personal computer, or have u installed it on a remote server.

    If its the latter then, that is the reason why you are having this problem.

    Try connecting to the machines hostname or live ip address?

    Hi, Plesk is installed on the local system. I am new to linux. To work on plesk i switched onto linux. I have heard Linux webserver is better than IIS webserver.
    As i have said plesk is installed on local computer and i tried to connect to the local computer using and

    But both dont work, When i try to connect to the local computer on that port i get an error saying connection refused on port 8443. The Httpd service is running fine.

    But during installation i did get some errors, may be you can help me with that. I think this is what causing the problem.

    The first error i got was about kernel, It said the software cannot change the kernel due to some bad bug or something(Sorry, dont remember the exact reason).

    Second is this (Please look below the installation process, copies it from terminal during installation)

    file /bin/dd from install of coreutils-4.5.3-19.0.2 conflicts with file from package coreutils-4.5.3-19
    file /bin/df from install of coreutils-4.5.3-19.0.2 conflicts with file from package coreutils-4.5.3-19
    file /bin/echo from install of coreutils-4.5.3-19.0.2 conflicts with file from package coreutils-4.5.3-19
    file /bin/env from install of coreutils-4.5.3-19.0.2 conflicts with file from package coreutils-4.5.3-19
    file /bin/false from install of coreutils-4.5.3-19.0.2 conflicts with file from package coreutils-4.5.3-19

    Several errors like these did show up.

    The default target directory is /root. DO you think that's on of the reason?

    Since your new to linux

    the best advice i can give you, is use FreeBSD

    You will have far fewer dependancies, the freebsd releases imo are more stable, and less buggy than other releases.

    I wanted to learn linux as i have already said that i would be using webservices of linux as they are more reliable than IIS. so i would like to stick to it rather switching to any other OS again.

    Can you give me an advice regarding the installation of plesk? Am i supposed to install the software in root directory or somewhere else. Does that make any difference?

    Please let me know.

    Did you follow the installation guide?


    You should connect to the Plesk interface via a browser to:

    What do the installation log tell you went wrong? If I remember correct, you should look in /tmp for a log stating what went on...

    And for further reference: Please always mention what version of Plesk you are using and your OS type and version, that helps when others try to help...

    The install was a bit of a problem, but I think Sundeep is asking why he cannot access the admin pages from his browser on a locally installed system.

    The error message " The connection was refused when attempting to contact " suggests to me that a server is running, and its doing its job by refusing access. I think either you need to give permissions on your local pc, or you need to start the https control. See the link I posted above.

    Sorry Whistler, I am using Redhat 9.0 version and the plesk i am trying to install over it is 7.5. I used the autoinstaller to install plesk and i followed the on screen instructions. The default destination directory plesk selected was in /root/psa.

    Thanks for your reply Wythrol, my httpd service is running. I did follow the instructions in the link which you have given. It gives me an error may be due to the service is not installed there. When i typed in the command in the terminal it gives me an error and when i browsed through the /usr/local directory there was no psa directory at that location.

    Any suggestions?

    i think it will be better to reinstall plesk from rpms.
    If you are sure that plesk was installed then try /etc/ini.t/psa status or restart.
    And you will see error message. In case if plesk starts normally you may do next
    netstat -nlp | grep 8443 And if you find proccess like "httpsd" but you will not be able to connect to plesk in this way https://[your.IP]:8443 then you need to check firewall

    The better part on instalation process in FreeBSD is:

    1. Type ./install.sh

    2. See the screens passing..

    3. Finish

    4. Install License.

    5. Connect on admin interface...

    If you need and can go start customizing our Fbsd, but the PLESK install is only the explained before
