    Hi there

    I'm pretty new to Plesk 10, but I'm just getting my head round customising through the command line. I've got a new install that's sucking up a large number of system resources, particularly Mailman (about 10%) and the Plesk Control Panel (opens 4 processes whenever it's open, which take up about 20%).

    So basically I want to shut down Mailman and limit the number of Plesk processes that are running (Usr psaadmin, Command sw-engine-cgi).

    So for Mailman, this is what I've done so far:
    /usr/lib/mailman/bin/mailmanctl stop
    and it seems to have stopped the qrunner, but I still seem to get about 8 open processes using the top command. Advice?

    For Plesk psa processes
    I've followed the Mediatemple instructions here:
    but when I try a configtest or restart as follows:
    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpsdctl configtest
    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpsdctl graceful

    I get a bash error
    -bash: /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpsdctl: No such file or directory

    Again, any advice would be very gratefully received.

    Use commands:

    root@ppu10-4:~# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/httpd_modules_ctl configtest
    root@ppu10-4:~# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/httpd_modules_ctl graceful
