HOW TO LIMIT EMAIL SENDING IN PANEL PLESK

Your hosting provider may place limitations on the number of outgoing email messages per hour, usually in order to restrict possible spam. A subscription, domain, and mailbox have their own limits. By default, the limit values ​​are defined by the hosting provider. You may need to increase the limits to send more email messages, or lower the limits to avoid excess outgoing mail.

Note: The options described below are shown only if the limitations on outgoing mail are activated by your hosting provider. Also, some limits may not be available (for example, the limit on the number of outgoing emails from a mailbox), depending on the mail server used in Plesk.

How to set limits on the number of outgoing emails for a domain:

NOTE:

If you access your mailbox through the IMAP protocol, you must select the option "Move spam to Spam folder" so that spam messages appear in their corresponding folder.

Since all messages are automatically deleted from the spam folder after 30 days, you will need to check the contents of the spam folder on a regular basis so that you do not lose any important messages and move them to the inbox.

When the option is selected "Move spam to spam folder", you can train the spam filter and improve its accuracy by moving spam messages from the Junk Mail Inbox and non-spam messages from Spam Mail to the Inbox.

If you need to adjust the sensitivity of the spam filter, click Show advanced configuration, and write a number of points that a message must meet to be considered spam.

HOW TO CREATE A DATABASE IN PLESK

With Plesk we can create and delete databases, we can do it like this:

  1. In the section "Websites and domains" and select "Databases":
  2. Now we will click on "Add new database":
  3. We complete the following fields:
    • Database name: If your subscription grants you the corresponding permission, you can choose a database type and the database server on which you want to create it.
    • We select the option create user in database: We fill in the username and password. We can also assign permissions to this new user. Remember that a database must have at least one registered user to be able to access it.
  4. Once we accept it, we should be able to see our database in its respective domain, as shown in the following image.

HOW TO CREATE NEW PLESK DATABASE USERS

To access the database in Plesk we must enter the name of a user account associated with it.

Any database user can be set as the default for a database. Plesk always accesses the database using the default user credentials, even if there are other users associated with the database. If a database has multiple associated user accounts, and none of them are default, the first account in the list will be used.

There are two types of database user accounts in Plesk:

If you are going to install a series of web applications on your site, it might be advisable to create a universal user account, so that all applications can access their databases with this account. In this case, you must first create a user account, and then specify the installation of applications.

Note: A universal user acts only within a database server. If you use multiple database servers, create a separate, universal user account for each server.

OPERATIONS WITH DATABASE USERS:

  1. select "Databases" in the left sidebar
  2. We will select the option «User administration».
  3. To add a new user, click on "Add database user"
  4. Fill in the following fields:
    • Database user name: Name of our user.
    • Password: User password
    • Database: We must choose which specific database you want to associate the new user with. Note: If we want to register a universal database user, we select "Anyone"

Notes:

  1. You can remove a default database user only by removing the database associated with this user. Alternatively, you can edit the user and delete the Default User Flag: For this database option, and then delete the user.
  2. If a database user was created by an APS application, you can remove this user only by deleting the respective application in Access Settings

Starting with Parallels Plesk Panel 12.0, remote access to a database can be allowed or prohibited, or access allowed only from specified hosts. The access settings apply to individual database user accounts. For more information, see the section on Configuring Up Custom Access Rules.

HOW TO COPY DATABASES IN PLESK

Plesk allows you to copy databases from one Plesk registered database server to another, as well as to any remote server, as long as the source and destination servers are of the same type (eg MySQL).

To copy a database we select «Websites and domains» >> «Data bases» >> «Copy»:

You must specify the destination server, subscription, and database name. For a remote server, you must select "Others" in the list of target database servers and provide the following additional information:

NOTE:

When an existing database is chosen as the target, those tables in the target database, whose names also appear in the source database, will be replaced.

HOW TO ACCESS THE PHPMYADMIN DATABASE IN PANEL PLESK

To access the PhpMyAdmin database in the Plesk Panel:

  1. Using the WebAdmin link on the tabs «Websites and domains» >> «Databases» we select the database and "PhpMyAdmin".

In this case, Plesk automatically uses the corresponding database user credentials.

If you need to access your database using other tools (like SQL Server Management Studio) or want to give other applications access to it, you will have to provide these tools and applications. We explain it to you below:

HOW TO EXPORT OR IMPORT DATABASE IN PLESK PANEL

In Plesk, we can export or import a database, we explain it below:

One of the reasons for exporting databases is security. While Plesk for Windows offers different functionality for database backups, in Plesk for Linux, export is the only option for creating independent database backup files.

Additionally, databases can be backed up with other data during subscription backups and then restored separately. See the Backup and Recover section of Websites for more information.

EXPORT A DATABASE

To export a database in the Plesk panel we must click on "Export dump" and then we will select the folder or directory in which the export of the database will be stored.

IMPORT A DATABASE

To import click on "Import dump" and then we select the file within our team and thus carry out the import.

Note: It is recommended that you import data into a new database.

For instructions on how to import and export with database management tools, see the built-in tools in help sections.

For example, if you want to restore only the DNS zone for one domain, example.tld, there is no need to restore the settings for all other domains. Restoring selected objects is possible only from backups created in Parallels Plesk Panel 12.0 or later.

To restore all objects: Select the Entire System (Full Restore) option.

HOW TO MANAGE APPLICATIONS WITH PANEL PLESK

Installing Applications

Depending on your needs and level of experience, you can choose one of the following ways to install an application:

Fast: This is the easiest way to install an application. If you choose this path, Plesk will perform a typical installation of the latest version of the application for the selected application, Plesk will use the default values ​​for the application settings. For example, your Plesk login credentials will be used as the application administrator credentials.

Please note: Some applications require you to fill in certain settings, even if you select express installation. Personalized. This allows you to customize application installation settings, such as administrator credentials and location, installation path, and others. In particular, you should use custom installation if you want to disable automatic application updates.

To install an application:

Select the tab "Applications" and find the application you need.

Click the "Install" button for quick installation or "Install (Custom)" for custom installation.

Example:

Sometimes you may have to install a specific version of an application. For example, if you want to use application extensions that are not compatible with the latest version of the application. In this case, click on the "Application name" Please select another version to select the version you need. Then install the application.

Example:

Note: For commercial applications, you need to obtain a license key, click on "Buy now" before starting the installation. For more information on using commercial applications, see the Commercial application license management section.

Application Management:

If an application provides a part of its Plesk functionality through services, you have the option to configure them. For example, the SugarCRM application allows the creation of user accounts and provides this capability as a service in the control panel. After selecting this service in the services provided, you can view all the application user accounts and create new ones. For some applications, you can associate the application accounts with the supporting user accounts. Learn more about account association in the Linking auxiliary user accounts and applications section.

Please note: If WordPress Toolkit is installed on the server, users are advised to use it for centralized management of WordPress installations on the server.

Concession Auxiliary users of access to applications:

By default, after installing an application, only users with the owner role can access it. To allow other users of the subscription to access the application:

Grant the permission to access the application to a certain group of users in Users >> User roles. Make sure to add the users of your choice to the group.

Once you allow users to access the application, a link to the application appears on their websites and domains with the name of the corresponding web page. Note that you can only control application access for user groups, so you must either modify the permissions of an existing group or create a new one, and then assign users to it.

Auxiliary User Account Linking Applications:

Some applications allow you to create and manage user accounts without logging out of the application. If an application provides such an account type service, you can link users of a Plesk subscription with accounts in the application. To carry out this association:

Organize users into a specific group(Users >> User Roles).

Grant one of these group permissions:

Public access.
If granted, all users in the group will have access to the application through the link on the Websites and Domains page.
Personal access.
If granted, the application will automatically create the accounts of all users in the group. After that, users' websites and domains will contain an additional link that allows them to log into a personal account in the application. Please note that if personal access permission is denied, the app will automatically delete all accounts associated with this group.

Update apps

Automatic Updates

By default, Plesk installs the latest versions and updates of available applications once the new versions are available. However, updating an application can significantly change its functionality: For example, plug-ins or extensions developed for a particular version of the application may be incompatible with new versions. Therefore, you may want to disable automatic app updates.

To turn automatic updates on or off:

Go to Applications >> Manage My Applications and click on the application name.

Example:

Click on setting:

Select or deselect the option Automatically update this app when updates are available.

If you prohibit automatic updates for an app, Plesk will inform you about the availability of the latest versions by adding the update link available under the application name in Applications >> Manage My Applications.
