I'm migrating Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5.9 to Parallels Presence Builder 11.x for Parallels Automation according to Migraton Guide.

To start migration I need adding URL and administrator's Password of Web Presence Builder for PA into Sitebuilder configuration:

/usr/local/sitebuilder/config    (/opt/sitebuilder/config for Debian/Ubuntu)
wpb_url = https://sitebuilder.<Presence Builder 11 host name>/
wpb_password = <password to Presence Builder 11>

How to get "wpb_url" and "wpb_password"?


  1. Find out the URL to the Presence Builder installation: in PA, click Hosting CP to open the control panel. Go to

    Applications tab > Parallels Automation for Web Presence > General tab

    Copy the URL at the bottom of the screen and past it to configuration file of Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5.9 (/usr/local/sitebuilder/config or /opt/sitebuilder/config) as "wpb_url".

  2. Go to the Settings tab to get the password. Copy the password shown in the field Password to Parallels Presence Builder for PA. You should decrypt the password before putting it as "wpb_password" into Sitebuilder config file.

    Extract the script from the archive (attached) and put it into proper location on server with Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5.9:

    /opt/sitebuilder/utils/pa_passwd.php (on Debian Linux-based systems)
    /usr/local/sitebuilder/utils/pa_passwd.php (on other Linux-based operating systems).

    Decrypt the password by using a console utility pa_passwd.php on Sitebuilder server:

    /opt/php52/bin/php5 /opt/sitebuilder/utils/pa_passwd.php (on Debian Linux-based systems)
    /opt/php52/bin/php5 /usr/local/sitebuilder/utils/pa_passwd.php (on other Linux-based operating systems).

    Put the password you received into Sitebuilder configuration file as "wpb_password".

Proceed with migration according to the document.
