    greetings,

    is it good to go for direct upgrade or sequential upgrades.

    If you provide hosting to paying clients and you want to keep them and your hair then I would NEVER upgrade Plesk in-place.

    Reduce DNS TTL to something small e.g. 30 minutes
    Obtain a 2nd server
    Install Plesk and any other software you need
    Copy a Plesk backup from the live server and restore it
    Test everything: web, database apps, scripts, email, webmail, statistics and so on
    Spend a week or so fixing all the things that have gone wrong
    Write a script to fix everything quickly in one go
    Repeat until everything works: Delete all domains, restore the backup again , run the fix script, test.
    When the script fixes everything, do the process again for real: Delete all domains, backup, restore, fix, test
    Update DNS and wait for the phone calls and emails from clients complaining about the things you missed.

    This is a nice tip to avoid losing emails while the DNS updates

    I haven't seen that one.

    Try the Plesk 8.6.0.5 patch - it's the latest.

    > "C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\admin\bin\HostingSecurity.exe" --update-domain-security "--vhost-name=default"
    You could also try running that command from the command-line. Have a poke around in the file system and IIS to see if there's anything amiss with the default domain.

    Alternatively pay the $ for a one-off support ticket.

    This illustrates the problem with in-place upgrades. You can find yourself in the position where you can't complete the upgrade and you can't undo it either. Meanwhile you have a server with no domains being served and the phone is ringing with your justifiably angry clients.

    Hi

    Plesk 8.6.0.5 update has been applied as well.


    when I tried using command line
    HostingSecurity.exe" --update-domain-security "--vhost-name=default"

    faulting application logs in after few seconds of running command

    what exactly shall be "default" domain here?

    while i tried on one of other hosted domains "test.com"( just to test command), command completed successfully
    No errors reported in application event log

    HostingSecurity.exe" --update-domain-security "--vhost-name=test.com"

    This folder should exist...

    C:\inetpub\vhosts\default

    and contan a file called .security and a sub-folder called htdocs which contains web files to be served when a non-existant site is requested. e.g. If the DNS for domain.co.uk points to a server but domain.co.uk is not configured.

    This is the default domain.

    C:\inetpub\vhosts\default\htdocs exists

    however there is no .security file.

    I guess i read event log wrongly , ereror still appeared event if i tried onany other domain name.
    >>>
    HostingSecurity.exe" --update-domain-security "--vhost-name=test.com"
    >>

    I didn't see this error upon server reboot now.

    but when the command is executed manually the application error is reported in log.
