- Plesk 11.x for Linux
On Plesk 11.5 or earlier, when a domain example.com that has a subdomain gets renamed to example2.com, PHP-FPM service fails to start.
/var/log/php5-fpm.log contains errors:
ERROR: [pool sub.domain.com] the prefix '/var/www/vhosts/system/sub.example.com' does not exist or is not a directory
ERROR: failed to post process the configuration
This is an internal issue with ID #PPPM-1685 that has been fixed in Plesk 12.0
When domain gets renamed, old configuration file for a subdomain is not removed or renamed, but a new one is being created instead. This causes PHP-FPM to fail.
Upgrade to at least Plesk 12.0.
