    Just installed Plesk 7.0 on my server but the 'Plesk Control Panel' service refuses to start. It's giving me the following error.

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Apache Service

    Date: 9/24/2004

    User: N/A
    Computer: USER32COM
    The Apache service named reported the following error:
    >>> (20024)The given path misformatted or contained invalid characters: Invalid config file path H:\\Program Files\\SWsoft\\Plesk\\admin\\conf\\httpd.conf .

    Tried to check out the registry but this config. isn't anywhere. I'll appreciate any sort of help . :)

    Plesk 7.0.1 patch also says that it couldn't start the apache2 service and hence doesn't complete successfully.

    I started apache from the command line and then opened the browser and pointed it to 'https://localhost:8443/', it says:

    I think this can help a lot to understand the problem that's being faced by me.

    Generally Apache failed to start because of corrupted permissions for %plesk_dir% folder and below.
    As Apache starts with credentials of user psaadm this user should have modify access to apache configuration file, temp and session folders.

    Good news!
    Plesk reconfugurator can fix Plesk permissions. Just run it (reconfigurator.exe) ,check&repair these folders and restart Plesk.:)
