Plesk remove chroot for domain

December 9th, 2011 Comments off

I haven’t found the way how to disable creating chroot-folders on webspace with new domain creation.

So, on Parallels forum support offered me to create Event manager handler.

Open Plesk -> Tools & Settings -> Event Manager -> Add New Event Handler

Fill the form:


Default domain (the first domain added to a subscription/webspace) created

highest (100)


/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/chrootmng –remove –source=/var/www/vhosts/chroot –target=/var/www/vhosts/${NEW_DOMAIN_NAME}

This handler will remove chroot from newly created domain immediately.

Plesk disable quotas check during upgrade

November 24th, 2011 Comments off

You can disable it by setting the following environment variable prior to the installation
or upgrade:


Of course this will work only if you run the process in the same shell, thus, it can’t be
set for GUI upgrader.

KB Parallels: During an installation/upgrade file system quotas check takes way too much time, can I disable it?.

PHP based torrent file creator, tracker and seed server – PHPTracker

September 16th, 2011 Comments off

Great software!

Why PHPTracker? Because it’s not “just a tracker”, it contains a seeder server too so the distribution of your files is automatic. This is a big step for the content providers to adapt this amazing technology and change the stereotype that “torrent = warez”.

Plesk: Real memory usage reported by ‘Server Health’ does not match actual RAM

August 29th, 2011 Comments off

Real memory usage reported by Plesk Health Monitoring Service (Home > Server Health > Memory) does not match RAM reported by utility ‘free‘.

RAM was updated after Parallels Plesk Panel was installed.
Plesk Health Monitor does not detect if the system configuration was changed after the initial installation.

The problem will be fixed in future update of Parallels Plesk Panel that will be released after version 10.2.

To workaround:

# /usr/local/psa/bin/sw-engine-pleskrun /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/scripts/setup-health-monitor.php

ffmpeg-php – error: ‘PIX_FMT_RGBA32’ undeclared (first use in this function)

To fix this, replace PIX_FMT_RGBA32 with PIX_FMT_RGB32 .

You can use “rpl” to replace files recursively:

cd to the ffmpeg-php folder and run this command (beware!):


If rpl not installed on your system, install it, for example:

yum install rpl

jQuery filter user input

June 20th, 2011 Comments off

I’ve coded small function that allows filter user input to <input> fields.
It allows to press 0-9 keys (incl. NumPad keys), “,” and “.”, Backspace.
It’s enought to write float value.

$(':input.onlynum').keypress(function(event) {
    if (
        // numbers
        (event.which < 48 || event.which > 57) && 

        // .,
        event.which != 44 && event.which != 46 && 

        // backspace
        event.which != 8                      
    ) {


Try to input non-numeric symbols:
<input class="onlynum">
