On October 19, 2021, we have enabled 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.
If you had already registered your account at Plesk 360 (formerly known as My Plesk) please use one for login. Otherwise please re-register it using the same email address as your existing 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.

Does Plesk have a Recycle Bin in File Manager?

    Be careful, because the trashbin has no retention time for deleting the files automatically. you have to this by hand.

    The recycle bin seems to be turned on by default now:

    So in case you suddenly run out of disk space on your server, this could be one "new" reason.

    This feature really needs a retention time feature otherwise the server will just fill up.

    If I disable the trashbin in Panel.ini, will the files within trash also be removed?

    Thx

    Glenn: No. You have to delete the files manually.

    Any plans to add plesk admin capability to limit how long files are kept in trashbin?

    Hi Glenn, the feature you are requesting is already in progress with ID PPP-54200. It will be most likely implemented in version 18.0.39. You can monitor this website https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/obsidian/change-log/.

    As a workaround, this could be resolved with a cron job.

    1. Log into Plesk

    2. Go to Tools & Settings > Scheduled Tasks > Add Task

    3. In the Command field, put the full path to the script to be executed.
      # find /var/www/vhosts/* -maxdepth 1 -type d -name ".trash" | xargs -i find {} -type f -mtime +1 | xargs -i rm {}
    4. In the Run field, set the the task execution time.
    5. In the System user field, leave user as root or choose another system user to run the task
