On October 19, 2021, we have enabled single-sign-on for our Plesk Support Center to provide a seamless login/account experience. This implies that you’ll be able to use a single account across any of our web-facing properties.
If you had already registered your account at Plesk 360 (formerly known as My Plesk) please use one for login. Otherwise please re-register it using the same email address as your existing Zendesk login (support account). It’s essential that you use the same email address on our support center to ensure that your tickets stay attached to the same account.

Smart Update fails: unable to correctly clone your website for further analysis

    It's true that Additional nginx directives prevent cloning of WordPress sites and thus the functionality of Smart Update. We are currently running Smart Update in a trial.

    Do you offer an other solution, workaround to make WordPress Smart Update working with Nginx directives enabled? We use the Nginx directives for HTTP Security headers and to block XMLRPC. So it's not an option to disable the directives during an update. Or do you have an script that will disable it temporary, run Smart Update and enable it?

    Looking forward!

    There really should be an option to get around this. I cannot disable rewrite rules on a production website (which I guess is the point of smart update, that it actually clones the website, so I don't have to do it manually.)

    Please look into a fix for this. This feature is one of the most important features in WP Toolkit - and it should work with something as common as rewrites (Apache or NGINX... but in my case NGINX).
