Symptoms

The following provisioning errors are shown in the PBAS Action Log:

--->8---
61 Error Failed #15 Provision domain 'optimized123.com'...
Process provisioning for document; Plesk Domain was added successfully (#56. But hosting setup failed: Wrong value of php_handler_type, it can take only CGI application

...skipping...

63 Error Failed #16 Provision domain 'optimized456.com'...
Process provisioning for document; Plesk Domain was added successfully (#57. But hosting setup failed: Error: Perl is disabled because the Panel operates in the VPS-optimized mode.
---8<-
--

As result, the domains are created without hosting and Plesk Domain subscriptions remain Pending.

Cause

In Parallels Plesk Panel 10, the "Plesk Domain" subscription is provisioned to operate in VPS-optimized Mode. The following is configured in the Hosting Plan:

The PHP Handler Type is Apache module or FastCGI application.

The enabled applications are as follows:

mod_perl support
mod_python support
mod_fcgi support

Additional Information

Use the utility vps_optimized to determine the operation mode of Parallels Plesk Panel 10:

root@plesk.node ~# /usr/local/psa/bin/vps_optimized --status
VPS Optimized mysql-innodb: on
VPS Optimized apache-modules-all: on
VPS Optimized apache-modules-except-php: on
VPS Optimized apache-modules-except-scripting: on
root@plesk.node ~#


VPS-optimized Mode causes the following:

 * Web applications requiring InnoDB will not work.
 * Perl, python and ASP scripts will not work because the required Apache modules will be switched off.
 * PHP will be available only through CGI.

 
Here you may find details about VPS-optimized Mode of Parallels Plesk Panel 10.

Resolution

There are two ways to resolve the provisioning error: configure the PBAS Hosting Plan properly, or switch Parallels Plesk Panel 10 back to the normal mode of operation.

1. Make sure the following is configured in the Plesk Domain Hosting Plan:

PHP Handler Type: CGI application

The following applications are disabled:

mod_perl support
mod_python support
mod_fcgi support


2. Refer to Parallels Plesk Plesk 10 documentation for details about switching the Panel back to the normal mode of operation.
