Filemanager not working

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 12.5 for Linux
  • Plesk Onyx for Linux
  • Plesk Multi Server


  • It is not possible to do changes to the configuration of nginx, like enabling SSL. There is no error shown in Plesk, but the changes not applied.

No config files created under /etc/nginx/plesk.conf.d/vhosts

DEBUG [util_exec] Command "nginx-config -l /var/www/vhosts/system/" is filtered out, response: array (

'stderr' => '',

'stdout' => '',

'code' => '',


  • Plesk file manager is not working. The following error message can be found in the panel.log :

    ERR [panel] Plesk PermissionDeniedException: Symbolic links outside the webspace are not allowed /: Access to realpath denied: /var/www/vhosts/

  • Plesk Multiserver Extension is present, but disabled.

  • Plesk database contains the following:

    plesk db " select * from misc where param='disable_provisioning'"

    +----------------------+-------+| param | val |+----------------------+-------+| disable_provisioning | true |+----------------------+-------+


Misconfiguration of Plesk Multiserver caused by database inconsistency.


  1. If Plesk Multiserver extension is disabled, update psa.misc table accordingly. Create backup of psa database first:

    plesk db dump > psa_backup.sqlplesk db "update misc set val='false' where param='disable_provisioning'"
