Activate Watchdog daily and weekly

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 11.x for Linux


When trying to change Send reports setting of WatchDog , the following error message appears:

Error: Configuring crontab task failed: The scheduled task does not exist.

As a result, periodicity of the corresponding cron task does not change and reports are sent as it was before making changes.


This is a software issue with internal ids #PPPM-986 and #PPP-5130 , which was fixed in Plesk 12 according to Plesk 12 Release Notes .


Please consider upgrading your Plesk to the latest version.

Also you may apply the following workaround on Plesk 11.5.30:

  1. Back up /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/modules/watchdog/wdcplib.php file

    # cp /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/modules/watchdog/wdcplib.php{,.orig}
  2. Download attached file

    # wget
  3. Reaplce the original file with downloaded one

    # cp wdcplib.php /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/modules/watchdog/wdcplib.php
