How to setup event handler to change default permissions

    Am attempting to setup an Event Handler to execute upon Domain Creation to change the permissions of the /httpdocs and /httpsdocs folders, using Plesk 9.2.x on a dedicated Linux server.

    The script works from the shell command line, however it does not seem to be executing when creating a new domain in Plesk.

    Event settings...

    Event: Domain created
    Priority: lowest (0) * also tried highest (100)
    User: root * also tried user psaadm (plesk)
    Command: /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/modules/test-domain-created-handler.sh <new_domain_name>

    The script:

    echo "--------------" >> /tmp/event_handler.log
    /bin/date >> /tmp/event_handler.log
    /usr/bin/id >> /tmp/event_handler.log
    echo "domain created" >> /tmp/event_handler.log
    echo "name: $1" >> /tmp/event_handler.log
    chmod 0775 /var/www/vhosts/$1/httpdocs
    echo "chmod 0775" >> /tmp/event_handler.log
    echo "--------------" >> /tmp/event_handler.log

    File: -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root test-domain-created-handler.sh

    When I add a new domain via Plesk, the script outputs to the /tmp/event_hanlder.log file, but the permissions remain 750 (defaults).

    Found examples in the Plesk documentation and read / followed the directions. I also referred to this post in a Plesk 8.x forum, which also links to the documentation sample: http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=91221

    Not sure if it's related to the user set to run the script or the script's permissions itself.

    Any help appreciated, thanks!

    Update --- got it to work, changed the event to get handled to "Physical hosting created".

    The flow -> create domain, then create hosting..., so just had to figure out where to have the event script triggered.
