Starting on October 19, 2021, we will enable single-sign-on for our Plesk Support Center to provide a seamless login/account experience. This implies that you’ll be able to use a single account across any of our web-facing properties.
To be prepared for this change and to avoid the need to register during your next ticket submission after the change, we encourage you to create an account here before October 19 using the same email address as your current Zendesk login (support account). It’s essential that you use the same email address on our support center to ensure that your tickets stay attached to the same account. You will continue to use ZenDesk authentication until we switch over to single-sign-on on October 19th.

    What are the equal instructions for moving any existing MYSQL DB and create a new default MYSQL database directory on Plesk Onyx/Ubuntu?

    Changing the location for a MySQL server is not officially supported by Plesk since it can cause a lot of different issues with websites and overall Plesk performance.
    As an alternative to moving the MySQL data directory to another location, consider mounting a partition from a new disk to the default MySQL data directory location /var/lib/mysql/.
