    Παρ' όλα αυτά, σύμφωνα με το παρακάτω link:, παρατηρούμε ότι πιθανόν να υπάρχει κάποιο πρόβλημα στην DNS υπηρεσία του server σας.
    Προτείνουμε να ελέγξετε τα logs της DNS υπηρεσίας σύμφωνα με το παρακάτω σύνδεσμο:
    Επίσης, μπορείτε να δοκιμάσετε και μία επανεκκίνηση στις υπηρεσίες του server σας και να ελέγξετε τα logs του server.
    Περισσότερες πληροφορίες για τα logs του server μπορείτε να βρείτε στον παρακάτω σύνδεσμο:

    You may want to add the following command to the article which is extremely useful when troubleshooting Plesk issues.

    View all Plesk logs in a real-time tail.

    plesk log --all

    Hello Tony,

    Thank you for your suggestion. This article provides information about location of configurations and logs of the main services only. As for "plesk log --all" command, this mentioned in our documentation.

    dovecot documentation incorrect:

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/dovecot restart
    -bash: /etc/rc.d/init.d/dovecot: No such file or directory

    Hello @TurnKeyWebsite

    Thanks for your feedback. The command is valid for CentOs 5 only, so we edited it to the more commonly used format.

    dovecot documentation STILL incorrect:

      • Logs can be found using the /usr/sbin/dovecot log find command

    This statement makes no sense – I see nothing in here about finding logs

    /usr/sbin/dovecot --help

    Usage: dovecot [-F] [-c <config file>] [-p] [-n] [-a] [--help] [--version]

    [--build-options] [--hostdomain] [reload] [stop]


    Dovecot repeatedly stops sending email with no errors. Having access to the logs would be helpful


      • /etc/sysconfig/dovecot

    The directory /etc/sysconfig does not exist!

    since the Plesk Let's Encrypt Extension v2.0.3
    2.0.3 (13 April 2017)
    • The extension now logs its communication with the Let's Encrypt servers in the "panel.log". This enables better troubleshooting when there are some issues with requesting a certificate.


    Pls. update/upgrade your extensions and afterwards, pls. repeat your steps and investigate possible issues/errors/problems in your "panel.log".

    Hello TurnKeyWebsites,

    1. As for the following command:

    /usr/sbin/dovecot log find

    I checked the on different Plesk and OS versions but could not reproduce behaviour that you reported. Would you mind to clarify what OS and Plesk version are you using?

    2. /etc/sysconfig/dovecot file can be found on CentOS/RHEL OSes. The article was modified accordingly.

    I would like to change collectd interval time.

    On top of /etc/sw-collectd/collectd.conf are comments:


    So my question is what is the correct way to change collectd config (Interval)?

    You can check this documentation page:

    Here you can find how to change configuration of Health Monitor.

    thanks for your answer. I already changed configuration of Health Monitor but collectd process interval is still set to 300. Even if I uninstall Healt Monitor, collectd process is still executed every 300 seconds.

    Does anybody know how to change this interval?

    @Klemen Balantič

    Oh, I see. 

    In case you need to change collectd interval, the only way is to edit /etc/sw-collectd/collectd.conf file, as you mentioned. 

    But it could be rewritten during installing Plesk updates (in case Health Monitor will be updated to a new version). So, the only workaround I can suggest is to create a cron task to keep the file modified. For example, the task from the screenshot can be used.(/etc/sw-collectd/collectd.conf.modified is the file with modified interval value)

    The details for Mailman are not fully valid for Plesk Onyx 17.5: The file <apache-conf-dir>/conf.d/mailman.conf does not exist (any more?). It seems that everything related to mailman is only defined in <apache-conf-dir>/plesk.conf.d/server.conf.

    Besides that, Ubuntu users do not find Apache configuration files under /etc/httpd/... but under /etc/apache2/...

    > It seems that everything related to mailman is only defined in <apache-conf-dir>/plesk.conf.d/server.conf.

    That is correct, even removal of mailman.conf does not breaks Mailman web interface. I have updated the article. Thank you for the input.

    Different Php Fpm versions have different locations for the process id file. The Watch Dog settings for Php Fpm do not allow setting the path to the Php Fpm process id file. It would be useful to have this feature.

    Currently we have to edit the Monit configuration file in order to set the path to the Php Fpm process id file. But this is not a good solution since updates to the Plesk Watchdog may overwrite the configuration changes

    Hello @Nadir, 

    As I understand, you are talking about custom Watchdog configuration to track several php-fpm handlers provided by Plesk. This solution is described in the following article:

    So, there is a workaround for that. If you think that this feature should be implemented in Plesk's watchdog extension, please create a request for it at our uservoice portal:
