Is there a way to disable the PHP setting safe_mode in a client or domain template in Plesk 8.6? Or, to disable it for new domain creation in some other Plesk setting/configuration?

  • I've Googled, and people seem to think no
  • I've asked our hosting provider, and they don't think so
  • I've looked in both the domain and client templates in Plesk and don't see it

Has anyone been able to do this Plesk 8.6 for new domains?

  • This question does not appear to be about server, networking, or related infrastructure administration within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about working with a service provider's management interface, such as cPanel. – HopelessN00b Jan 14 '15 at 4:31

There is in Plesk 9.2. I highly suspect that the behavior works the same in 8.6.

Using your favorite MySQL interface, login as admin, using your Plesk administrator password, then look at the results of:

USE psa;
DESCRIBE hosting;

Look for the field: php_safe_mode. The default is true.

I believe that if you set the default to false, you will achieve what you're trying to achieve.

Thanks, but that didn't work in 8.6. – Justin Mar 17 '10 at 22:10
I will mark this as the answer cause it's very helpful for Plesk 9+. Thanks again! – Justin Jul 10 '11 at 17:17
