    Is there a way to tell if plesk is running on a dedicated server or is it running on a virtual private server?

    I purchased a dedicated server with Plesk 7.5 reloaded. But after browsing the SwSoft site I notice they sell other products which would allow my web host to cram me onto a server with a dozen other users and I would never know.

    If plesk is running under virtuozzo, you would know firstly due to the filesystem. IIRC your hard drive is something like /dev/vz0 instead of /dev/hda or whatever.

    If you run a 'df' via shell it'll say "vzfs" if you're running under Virtuozzo. Alternatively, you could check to see if you have a file called /proc/user_beancounters, or check the kernel version.

    It's unlikely they would place you on a VPS as it's so easy to find out.
