The location for the PrivateTemp folder on a Plesk for Windows server was customized according to the article.
$DumpTempDir value is reset to default upon the upgrade
Plesk bug #PPPM-10406 which is planned to be fixed in future Plesk releases.
Until the issue is resolved, set the customized path in the registry again after the upgrade according to the article.
PrivateTemp folder is used for storing temporary files and dumps by Plesk engine and different Plesk components (Backup Manager, for example).
The location is defined by two variables:
- $PRODUCT_ROOT_D\PrivateTemp - defines PrivateTemp folder location
- $DumpTempDir - defines location for storing temporary dumps.
The first variable is defined during Plesk installation and is hardcoded to %plesk_dir%PrivateTemp\. It cannot be customized and it is by-design behavior.
The second variable can be customized in system registry
