Some newbie questions...

    Hello,

    I'm successfully running Plesk 7.5.4 with CentOS4.2 (RHEL build) and although I have 10 domains so far, I'm wondering about a few things. Most of the domains are for my own use (ecommerce, etc.), however a few are for clients. My questions are:

    1. I can access all my domains through https://www.mydomain.com:8443/login.php, and from there, I can administer all domains/clients. But how can a domain owner login into their admin side without going to this url? Like https://www.theirdomain.com:8443/login.php? and,

    2. I use Navicat to administer MySQL, but can anyone advise how to connect successfully? I'm really struggling to get the right settings.

    Thanks in advance,
    Greg

    Hey camdenbo:
    That is probably the simplest way. I have all my customers who want or need access go that route. I give them a slightly shorter URL:
    https://domainName:8443

    Since you have admin access you can control what they can see and do. Try logging in as your customer would to see what they see. It works well for my customers.

    Hope this helps,
    Art

    You can log into mysql as the admin:

    mysql -u admin -p (password = root password from plesk)

    From there you can select databases and tables to work with. I highly recommend you make a backup first of the database especially if you are new to this.

    Be very careful if you plan to work with the psa (Plesk) database as you can "break" Pleak so that it won't run.

    Art,

    Is there a graphical way of administrating mysql, i.e. phpmyadmin, so I can manage all databases?

    Right now I have to go into each domain, navigate my way endlessly to each database. Very cumbersome, there must be an easier way?

    Also, does Plesk allow for a wildcard ftp access, I think in cPanel it was %? And how would I do that? I'm trying to adminisiter my db's with Navicat.

    Thanks again,

    Greg
