Plesk VPN was a component that allowed setting up an OpenVPN service on a server. However, due to consistently low installation numbers and significant resources needed to update it for compatibility with Plesk Obsidian it has been decided to stop its development.
- What to do? The OpenVPN can be installed and configured manually using official instructions
To simplify the UX and remove rarely used non-default color schemes, only two color schemes are available since Plesk Obsidian: Obsidian and Onyx.
- What to do? If more color schemes are required please vote for this feature in Plesk UserVoice portal:
- File Server, also known as File Sharing, was a component that allowed Plesk administrators to share directories on a network directly from the Plesk. Due to the low usage of this component it was decided to drop it.
- What to do? Use a different solution, for example, install SeaFile extension
Windows 2008 R2
- Windows 2008 R2 reached the end-of-life on January 14, 2020 and not supported anymore.
- What to do? For those who use Plesk on this OS, we recommend migrating to supported Windows OS using Plesk Migrator
- This used to be an excellent OS, but unfortunately, it’s outdated since April 1, 2019. As we are dedicated to focus our efforts on the latest, most secure OSes recommended by OS vendors, we are dropping Ubuntu 14.04 support.
- What to do? For those who use Plesk on this OS, we recommend migrating to a different OS using Plesk Migrator.

1194, which you can choose to use, but you might like a different number for security purposes. Port range is
Should this be the answer to my question? I'm not asking about the OpenVPN port but the port for the Access Server GUI, which may conflict with Plesk itself.
Hello @Christian Heutger,
TCP 943 is the default port where OpenVPN Access Server offers the Admin Web UI and Client Web UI. Please refer to OpenVPN documentation:
If you have any issues with OpenVPN configuration please contact OpenVPN support at https://openvpn.net/contact/.
I appreciate your understanding.
