    According to the big problems of PLESK-software produced

    Plesk 7.5.2 Reloaded, Linux
    I have to move 1 domainname from one client to another client.
    How can I do this?
    (No, I do not want to delete the domainname from one client
    and then setup again the same domainname onto the other
    client's account.)

    BTW: Yes, I also have access with phpmyadmin to the
    PLESK-table "psa". I think, it has to do with the

    SELECT psa
    FROM `domains`
    LIMIT 0 , 30

    There is a row called "cl_id" and I think, if I change just only
    the number of "cl_id", then the domainname will automatically
    be moved, but I am not so very sure. I am not sure, if this will
    be enough...

    Thank you very much.

    Yes, you can just change cl_id, but there is one more way:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/domain.sh -u <domain> -clogin <client_login>

    Wonderful. I was just updating this.

    For those who would like to more details how to change it.
    Install the phpmyadmin to your PLESK-server to any
    htaccess-protected directory, for example


    Edit the config.inc of phpmyadmin:

    is the same username like you use for PLESK-login.

    is the same password like you use for PLESK-login.

    Now you can see (and edit) all of PLESK with your

    Here in my case to change the client-id "cl_id", look:

    Server: localhost
    Database: psa
    Table: domains

    If you have cl_id number 1 for you, and another client has
    cl_id number 3, just edit this in this table "domains" and
    save it. The info with your phpmyadmin will show you
    something like this here:

    UPDATE `domains` SET `cl_id` = '1' WHERE `id` =3 LIMIT 1 ;

    If you relogin to your https://www.mydomainname.tld:8443/
    then the edited domainname will appear under your client-id-
    account number 1.

    We have only 1 IP-number. All the domainnames must be
    moved to only 1 client-account. Then the "anonymous
    will be active to get your own "anonymous ftp". And the
    itself? Well, they can still login to Plesk by
    and its password. Just give them "domain-management"-access.


    Oh, thank you for this nice tip. Thats also a good idea. :)

    BTW, in plesk 7.5.3 you can do this from the control panel:

    5. [+] It is now possible to transfer domains from one client to another using the control panel.
