    Total newbie here, first ever root server and I'm lost completely with this plesk.

    I have one user (me) and five sites.
    the ssh consule is greyed out and I've been recommended not to enable it.

    I can access my server shell with a root username and password, but I can't get to any of my sites.
    someone told me I should type in

    cd /home/httpd/website1.com
    cd /home/httpd/website2.com
    cd /home/httpd/website3com
    cd /home/httpd/website4.com

    But I get a no such file message. :(

    I've previously been on a managed server which didn't have plesk and I was able to access all my websites with four different logins,
    i.e website 1 UserID pass would show me all the files in that directory I wouldn't see other sites.

    I want to be able to set up a database on my new server, and restore the data by the command line
    mysql -u dbo11111111 -p db2222222 < mydump.SQL

    because mydump.sql was made from a different server, I downloaded it by FTP, then reuploaded it from FTP in the site1.com directory.

    But I can't even get to my site by ssh let alone restore this database.

    Can anyone please give me some advice. As I say I'm a total newbie to root servers and plesk so really need some help, my server hosts are just not answering support tickets :(

    Your directory structure is as follows:

    /var/www/vhosts/Domain/httpsdocs (ssl)

    /var/www/vhosts/Domain -- this is where you're at with FTP

    You have the phpMyAdmin database manipulation system within Plesk's control panel to handle database administration (makes things easier for you, if you like) as well... It's in the Control Panel -> Domains -> Domain -> Databases -> DB Name -> WebAdmin (it'll pop up a window)...

    Then you can go from there.
