  • Applies to:
  • Plesk 10.4 for Linux/Unix


When trying to run an initial configuration of Plesk via CLI, the following error appears:

[root@~]# /usr/local/psa/bin/init_conf --init -passwd öäß -email
Cannot initialize Parallels Panel: Wrong syntax for command's '-passwd' parameter.


The configuration script of Plesk does not support national characters for password specification.


We recommend not using national characters while specifying the administrator's password during the initial configuration.
