When creating a subscription/domain or switching the Hosting type to website hosting in Plesk > Domains > example.com > Hosting Settings, the following error message appears in Plesk:
PLESK_ERROR: User account jdoe already exists.
The system user exists in the Plesk database.
Remove the Plesk system user from the Plesk database
# plesk db "DELETE FROM sys_users WHERE login = 'jdoe'"
Remove the Plesk system user from the system:
in Plesk for Linux:
# deluser jdoe
Note: On on CentOS/RHEL-based distributions, the command
deluserhas to be replaced with
in Plesk for Windows Server:
C:\> net user jdoe /delete
