Weird error message trying to restart Plesk

    My server has been acting very strange today. When I try to restart Plesk via command line, I receive the following error:

    [root@logic ~]# /etc/init.d/psa restart
    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpsdctl restart: httpd restarted
    packagemng: Unable to create 'dirty' flag in the PRODUCT_ROOT_D/var: Permission denied
    System error 13: Permission denied
    packagemng: Unable to create 'dirty' flag in the PRODUCT_ROOT_D/var: Permission denied
    System error 13: Permission denied


    Has anyone seen this before? And if so, what needs to be done to fix this issue. I have tried to "update" Plesk to which I also receive permission denied errors.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    I have never seen this odd error msg.

    Paste us the exact errors. It may be related.

    I resorted to reinstalling the server and Plesk. I didn't have the time to mess around with it too much as my clients were crying.

    New Problem - Same Error

    I am sure this is related to the "owner" of some file or directory. I am receiving the same error. I really don't want to reinstall Plesk or the server.

    Anyone want to take a shot at the error. Basically what is in the first post is the error message you get, PSA does start but I don't seem to be able to find any reference to this on either the console or the logs other than what is displayed.

    [root@ss0 log]# service psa stop
    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpsdctl stop: httpd stopped
    Stopping Plesk: [ OK ]
    [root@ss0 log]# service psa start
    Processing config directory: /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/httpsd.*.include
    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpsdctl start: httpd started
    Starting Plesk: [ OK ]
    packagemng: Unable to create 'dirty' flag in the PRODUCT_ROOT_D/var: Permission denied
    System error 13: Permission denied
    packagemng: Unable to create 'dirty' flag in the PRODUCT_ROOT_D/var: Permission denied

    Make sure /usr/local/psa/var is owned by psaadm:psaadm and the permissions are 0755...
