Plesk 7.52 And FreeBSD

    I thought I would try to move some of the known fixes to
    a common area for the FreeBSD users.
    I have attached a link to a file that contains the fixes.
    The file contains a single tarball containing the 4
    files listed below. The tarball is rooted to /usr/local.
    No script is provided to install the files, since I assume
    most should be able to perform this without a problem.
    It is important that you make sure the permissions are
    set as indicated. You might also want to backup the
    original files before you proceed.

    When the next Hotfix or Release comes out, we will update
    this post to reflect the changes.
    It is assumed that you have already applied the existing
    Hot Fix. If not, you will need to do so before you continue.
    Hotfix Release on Feb 4, 2005 FreeBSD 4.9
    Hotfix Release on Feb 4, 2005 FreeBSDBSD 5.3

    The following items have been addressed by SW-Soft, and
    are not included in the current HotFix dated Feb 4, 2005.
    And are for the FreeBSD 4.9 release. They have not been
    tested on FreeBSD 5.3.

    • Problem migrating accounts from another Plesk Server
      File: /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/launchpad
      Permissions: plesk : plesk 0755
    • Spamassassin configure with wrong qmail base path
      File: /usr/local/psa/spamassassin/bin/spamd
      Permissions: root : wheel 0755
      FIle: /usr/local/psa/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/Mail/SpamAssassin/CmdManage.pm
      Permissions: root : wheel 0644
    • Problem accessing domains. Blank page displayed

    This should really be stickied - this is a serious problem that is well addressed by this patch.

    And don't forget to run the update utility/apply the official patch mentioned there before doing this!

    If you're attempting to use this, make sure you follow the directions explicitly, otherwise it's not going to work!

    thanks jprince!

    Hi there,

    I came across a new problem with 7.5.2 on FreeBSD 4.9

    My customers are complaining that they cannot use the backup function for their domains.

    In fact, when you click into Backup from control panel, following message shows up:


    DumpsList::init() failed: filemng failed: filemng: opendir failed: Permission denied

    0: /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/domains/backup/dumps_list.php:248 psaerror(string "DumpsList::init() failed: filemng failed: filemng: opendir failed: Permission denied")

    I tried with several domains, and all got the same error.

    I have problem whit reciving Email's . And sending email as well.

    This doesen't fix it. HELP many people is angry:mad: on me.....

    Hope i't will be a fix.

    I have done all the things that have been post here before butt nothing works ..

    Sorry for my bad English...

    A solution for the backup problem I posted earlier is (according to Plesk support or bugreport):

    chown psaadm:psaadm /usr/local/psa/var/dumps

    Domain directories are created under this directory with the right permissions now, I think they got the wrong permissions either during upgrade to 7.5.2 or during the time of 7.0.x

    Hello audun1,
    First I am assuming you are using FreeBSD. Correct?
    After you have applied the hotfix, and the updates listed,
    did you perform the mchk -v ?

  7. audun1

    audun1 Guest

    Yes i'm FreeBSD user.

    And the HOTFIX is instaled.

    The commando is used, all the things I have found.

    Butt nothing works.
  8. jprince

    jprince Guest

    Aside from running the hotfix, installing the file(s), and
    running mchk -v, I am not sure what might be causing your
    issue. I can only suggest that you contact SW-Soft Support
    and let them have a look.

  9. audun1

    audun1 Guest

    Maybe i must do that.
    Butt doesen't that require payin them for the support?

    I don't have paid support :D

    Maybe I shod start all over again and do it all ?

    what do you gays think:D

    Spamassassin wasn't working for me on 7.5.2 on FreeBSD 5.2. So I thought I'd give the above a go. I applied the FreeBSD 5.2 hotfix and followed the instructions. Spamassassin will not start now.

    GUI: Unable to make action: Unable to manage service by spamd: Unable to start server.

    Command line: Plesk: failed to start SpamAssassin

    Should I not have applied these updates to 5.2? Any ideas on getting spamassassin working?

    Many Thanks

    There is a seperate hotfix for FreeBSD 5.3.
    Try applying that instead of the one for 4.9.
    I modified the first post, to include it.

    The changes I posted, have only been tested on 4.9.
    While I assume they should work on 5.3, I have not
    tested them.

    Hi there,

    my apache server suddenly stops working under Plesk 7.5.2 for FreeBSD-4.9, build 75050204.18 ... it sits in some kind of a loop where it logs hundreds of this pair of lines in /usr/local/psa/apache/logs/error_log

    critical_acquire() failed: Invalid argument
    critical_release() failed: Invalid argument

    While in this zombie state, apache is unable to serve domains at all. I have to issue apachectl restart every hour per crontab to wake it up.

    It was the 5.3 hotfix that I applied. Quite unbelieveably I also overwrote the both copies of the orignal files on the server, is there a way to download just these files?

    One thing that did confuse me is:
    Permissions: plesk : plesk should this be root psaadm?

    Just got spamassassin to start. I changed the first line in /usr/local/psa/spamassassin/bin/spamd to #!/usr/bin/perl -w !!

    Thing now is spam gets caught in a loop.
    not all the spam is bouncing as I've just had some mail tagged as spam come through. Not sure what's going on yet, I think it may just be that I was sending the spam from my address.

    After several hours it appears that my email address, which I am using for a test, is working correctly.

    So if you are using freeBSD 5.2 and want to use the spamassassin fix posted at the start of this thread change the first line of the new version of
    #!/usr/bin/perl -w

    This is not properly tested etc etc etc


    A test non spam message gets through OK but if I send myself a test spam message I get it returned:

    Hi. This is the qmail-send program at my.lovely.plesk.box.
    I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
    This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

    This message is looping: it already has my Delivered-To line. (#5.4.6)

    The IMAP/POP3 having a red X is a bug on FreeBSD 5.x (not sure if it's a bug on 4.x).
    They logged into my server and changed a script that fixed it for a day, but it re-broke itself and I have the red X again for IMAP.

    It has something to do with Plesk checking to see if the wrong program is running for IMAP (courierlogger or something like that).

    I'll just wait until they release another patch I guess.
