I am trying to create a user which has rights to the Panels (v11) CLI tools. I've added the user to the psaadm group, as the documentation indicates, as well as the swkey-data group, as I was getting access denied for that dir. I am using sudo to run the command as that user:

sudo -u mcp /usr/local/psa/bin/subscription --info test.com

But I am receiving this error:

Unable to connect to database: get_admin_password() failed: file_get_contents() failed:

I don't think I've seen such topic in Plesk documentation before. Can you tell in which documentation you've got this recipe? –  Sergey L Aug 29 '12 at 6:02
