Question

How to determine which database provider is used to store the Plesk database?

Answer

To determine the database provider, it is necessary to run regedit.exe and check following hives.

  • For x86:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\PLESK\\PSA Config\\Config
  • For x64:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\wow6432node\\PLESK\\PSA Config\\Config

The value of the key PLESK_DATABASE_PROVIDER_NAME is the database provider that Plesk uses for database storage.

The following database providers may be listed here:

  • Jet (only available on Plesk 9.5.5 or older)
  • MySQL
  • MSSQL
