    You need to specify the "Options Indexes" in a vhost.conf or vhost_ssl.conf file for the domain. (/home/httpd/vhosts/abc.com/conf/vhost.conf

    <Directory /home/httpd/vhosts/abc.com>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

    If a URL which maps to a directory is requested, and there is no DirectoryIndex (e.g., index.html) in that directory, then mod_autoindex will return a formatted listing of the directory.

    The server will follow symbolic links in this directory.

    If you do not use symbolic links, then you do not need to specify "FollowSymLinks"

    Further info is at Apache docs:

    After making changes, you need to run the Plesk utility:

    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng -u --vhost-name=abc.com

    in the plesk control panel,
    in my domain abc.com , there is a option called file manager.
    in that it shows a conf file but whenever trying to open, it gives permission denied, though
    i m having adminnstrative rights.

    please let me know how to open that directory to solve
    my problem.

    You cannot edit the conf directory contents from the control panel, you need to use SSH to connect and login as root, and edit the files that way.
