    Hello,

    Can I bypass Plesk login and log directly into SiteBuilder 5?
    I'm offering just Sitebuilder, so I don't want to deal with support issues related to other Plesk's functions.

    Thank you.
    Alexandre

    Hi AlexandreS,

    You can use the following (or similar) web form to bypass Plesk (obviously, this is just an example, you can modify it as you see fit):

    <html>
    <body>
    <form name="f1" action="https://your.host.tld:8443/login_up.php3" method="post">
    <input type=hidden name="passwd" value="your-password">
    <input type=hidden name="locale" value="en-US">
    <input type=hidden name="login_name" value="your-login">
    <input type=hidden name="failure_redirect_url" value="https://your.other.host.tld/error-notification">
    <input type=hidden name="success_redirect_url" value="https://your.host.tld:8443/smb/sitebuilder/redirect/id/1">
    <input type="submit" name="mysubmit" value="Click!" />
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    The important part here is the "1" value in the following URL: 'https://your.host.tld:8443/smb/sitebuilder/redirect/id/1'. This value is unique for every domain on a server and it is basically its internal ID. In this particular example "1" means "first domain created on this Plesk server". In other words, each WPB website/customer should have their own value.


    On the other hand, you might be interested in our WPB Stand-Alone solution, if you don't offer Plesk - drop me a PM to learn more.

    Hope it helps.

    Did you find a solution?

    Hi AlexandreS,

    Did you ever find the solution to this? I'm trying to do the same thing. I'm using Plesk to manage the hosting and billing of my customers, but I am not giving them access to the panel. I am, however, offering WPB...

    So I need them to have the ability to login to their Plesk Panel at the normal panel login page, but then be immediately passed straight through to WPB without seeing the hosting panel.

    The problem with the form provided by custer is that it requires a unique login URL for every subscription/customer since I would have to know and include the domain ID value for each domain attempting to be accessed by WPB. This is, of course, impractical

    It seems like the login credentials would be the unique identifier to tell Plesk which customer account to login to and then simple hand-off to pass the user straight through to the WPB...

    custer, any thoughts on this? You mentioned the standalone version can be logged into directly, but if I were to get the standalone version would it not integrate with the hosting panel, billing mgr etc?

    Thanks for the help

    Hi Jonathan,


    I will discuss this issue with Plesk team, but there's one thing I want to understand first:

    In your scenario users log in via Plesk login page and immediately end up on their WPB website. The question is, how are they supposed to select the website they want to end up on (if they have multiple WPB websites) in this scenario? If we are to support this scenario, we need to understand and address all possible implications, this being one of the most important ones. Thank you in advance.
