Configuring Plesk to recognize vhost.conf

I always seem to forget this. So here’s to remembering. As usual, you create a vhost.conf file in the conf folder of your domain dir. Here’s what mine looks like.

DocumentRoot /var/www/vhosts/
<Directory /var/www/vhosts/>
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        AllowOverride all
        Options +Indexes
        Options +FollowSymLinks

Telling Plesk to recognize the new vhost.conf file

This is the part I always forget.
Initializes vhost.conf for one specific domain

/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/websrvmng -u


Initialize all vhost.conf files for all domains.

/usr/local/psa/admin/bin/websrvmng -a
