    Hello
    I've very strange problem:
    I've reinstalled server with OpenSUSE 10.2 + Plesk 8.3. Next upgraded to 8.4 and migrated a few domains from other server. Everything works (vhosts & mail), but no page is shown at https://myserver:8443/.

    # /etc/init.d/psa start
    Starting xinetd service... done
    Starting named service... done
    Starting mysql service... done
    Starting qmail service... done
    Starting courier-imap service... done
    Starting postgresql service... failed
    Starting psa-spamassassin service... done
    Syntax OK
    Starting Plesk... done
    Starting drwebd service... done

    (PostgreSQL - no such license in Plesk, so it's not an error)
    The strange is everything worked a few days and even now looks fine: any configuration errors (in logs), Plesk starts and works on server but webpage for control panel is dead.
    Looking at other threads I did command:
    sh -x /etc/init.d/psa start1
    and that was shown:

    Any idea what's wrong?
    Thanks for any help

    How Control Panel is not accessible? What error web-server gives in browser? What's the behavior -- is it just constantly loading and then falling with 'timeout' error or is there any particular error or blank screen?

    Usually, when such things happen I use three simple steps:

    1. Check firewall settings -- maybe port 8443 is blocked (useful for 'timeout' error)
    2. Check any errors in /usr/local/psa/admin/logs/httpsd_error_log (especially looking for any 'Segmenation fault' messages)
    3. turn on 'display_errors' in /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/php.ini to see detailed errors (if blank screen is given)

    But with so little information right now it is hard to say what's wrong there.

    Good luck,

    Same problem

    I also cannot access to control panel page. My browser (firefox) takes forever to load the page. I also have tried with Internet Explorer, it shows "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" and status bar show "Waiting for https://mydomain.com:8443/...".

    Anyone please help.

    I use FreeBSD 5.0.

    Me too. After update fron 8.3 to 8.4 everything went well until I received an email telling me that the update to the Plesk key had failed whilst at the same time telling me that 1 additional key had been received. Plesk failed to restart so I restarted it from the command line without a problem. Unfortunately the problem wasn't far away.

    On my first log in to the control panel I was informed that the key update had been unsuccessful and suggested manual update. I ran this and was presented with a success message showing me what was licensed.

    The message had an OK button. You can guess what happened next. Like a fool I clicked it and immediately the control panel disappeared and was replaced by the following.

    "The connection to https://myserver:8443 has terminated unexpectedly. Some data may have been transferred."
    "The browser connected successfully, but the connection was interrupted while
    transferring information. Please try again."

    Since then everything works but port 8443. Could this be something to do with a bug in 8.4? I also have the same httpsd_error_log as above.

    I contacted 1&1 who host my server but they just accused me of tampering with configuration files even though the timestamp showed this wasn't possible. As this seems to be more than a single incident maybe Parallels will look into it. Lets hope.

    PS Yes I did post the dumb message of posting instructions. A bad habit as a forum I use regularly require you to click first and then type. Sorry.
