One of the questions that came up at Parallels Summit recently was how to uninstall Customer and Business manager. Plesk doesn’t offer a solution to uninstall things – even though you can add modules, once they’re installed they’re installed.
Luckily I remember a good forum thread that’s a bit long so I’ll give you a concise version here.
Note: this works in Plesk 10.4.4 and 11.0.9 for Linux (CentOS) – I haven’t tried earlier or later versions or other distributions at the time of writing. If you have any feedback, please leave a comment.
We’re currently on our way to Kissimmee, FL to join Parallels Summmit, an annual conference from the people who make Plesk. We’re also taking exams in Plesk 10.4.4 so we’re studying it in-depth – I’ve been using the software for over two years now but never had formal training in it. Well here goes!
In preparation for the exam tomorrow I’ve come across something the instructor mentioned: namely the benefits of running PHP as a FastCGI application instead of an Apache module. Sadly I’ve also come across some drawbacks when using this option in regards to WordPress. I thought I’d mention those here, alongside how to avoid those.
UPDATE: Thanks to Boldock this problem can be fixed 😉
