Plesk won't activate site, Domain Expired?

Discussion in 'Plesk for Linux - 8.x and Older' started by Michael Smith, Oct 26, 2007.

    I'm setting up users on my new Plesk control Panel, and for two of the domain names I see a red "X" next to the domain names. When I try to activate them I get this message:

    Error: The domain is still suspended for the following reason: Domain is expired

    Yet both of these domains aren't due for renewal until around march 2008. They're also on autorenew at my registrar.

    What's with this error and how can I activate these sites?

    Thanks Much,
    Michael SMith

    Log into the Plesk Control Panel, click <DOMAINS> then the domain in question then "Limits". Look at the "validify period" You must have an expiration date set there.

    That worked!

    Thanks, what a no brainer that really was. Sure enough the validity period was set for todays date. After making it "unlimited" it worked like a charm.

    Thanks Again,

    Statistics -> Resource Usage

    Sorry to revive this thread years later, but I thought this information might be useful to someone.

    I've also just fallen foul of this bizarre configuration option; why does "unsuspend" not at least give you instructions on how to resurrect your site? The "domain expired" message also confused me for a while, as I thought (not unreasonably) that the actual domain had expired.

    Still, removing the "Limits" value does the trick. However, in my version of Plesk (9.0.1) I found this by clicking Domains, then the domain name, then "Resource Usage" in the "Statistics" panel. Hope that helps.

    I am using 9.3.0 and was having difficulty locating the Limits Area. Here is where I located it:

    Statisitics | Resourse Usage | Expiration Date
