There is no local database server for mysql.
CauseThe Parallels Installer utility incorrectly detects that MySQL server 5.1 is installed and therefore fails to register the server as a local database.
ResolutionIf you want to use other MySQL server versions with Parallels Plesk Panel, please do the following:
1. Remove the custom MySQL server if it is already installed.
2. Install Panel with the native MySQL server.
3. Remove the native MySQL server and install the custom one.
