    It's too little information about problem.

    There is bugreport@sw-soft.com, and you can send them bugreport with version of Plesk you are using, skeleton file you are trying to upload and description of the problem.

    mailed to plesk team?

    and I remember there was predefined list of directories in skeleton, and you're not allowed to create another ones.

    Did you add the folders at the top level? manual explicitly prohibits it. If not, that's the serious bug in Plesk (missing error message if you uploaded wrong skeleton is also a bug, but not so serious).

    Notes to other readers:

    1. You cannot add other top level directories to the tar/zip file.

    2. Once you have tar/zipped your directories, re-open the file and make sure it did not include any other directories from your working path.

    Such as if you are working from /tmp/default-skeleton and you have the 'httpdocs', 'httpsdocs', 'cgi-bin', 'error_docs' under 'default-skeleton', make sure that when you open the file, it should immediately show you the 'httpdocs', 'httpsdocs', 'cgi-bin', 'error_docs' directories! This is where Marios went wrong, his 'Step 4'.

    3. If you wish to add your own directories and files, you will have to put them inside one of the allowed top level directories, such as httpdocs or conf.

    5. Plesk does not report when you upload wrong skeleton. It just silently dicards the content.
