Quick Preview on an external domain name shows error: 403 Forbidden

    It is hard to tell what the "Resolution" is asking us to do.  "Default Quick Preview" is a radio button.  I'm pretty sure if you click it twice, nothing much is going to happen.  This is a very frustrating bug that is well enough understood to have an ID.  Please share a bit more so we can implement a work round until the fix is available.

    Thanks, Greg

    I have the same problem with a new installation of Plesk Onyx 17.5.8.

    Could it be that you resolved the problem in 17.5.3 and in 17.5.8 it returns?

    Hello @Urs Giezendanner !

    By Plesk Onyx 17.5.8, did you mean Plesk Onyx 17.8.11 or Plesk Onyx 17.5.3 Update 8?

    If 17.8, it's a very low possibility of that bug reproducing on this version.

    Anyway, ensure that all is configured correctly according to our documentation.

    Also, consider submitting a support request so we check the issue from our side.
