Question

There are a lot of subscriptions assigned to an IP address in Plesk for Windows. How to switch the subscriptions to a different IP address?

Note: For Linux, please refer to article #943.

Answer

This can be accomplished using Plesk Reconfigurator:

  1. Log in to the Plesk-managed server as a user with administrator rights using Remote Desktop.

  2. In the Windows Start menu, select All Programs > Plesk Reconfigurator. The reconfigurator application window will open.

  3. Select the Change server IP addresses option. The IP Addresses Reconfiguring window opens.

  4. Under Select the IP addresses to be changed, select checkboxes corresponding to the IP addresses that are needed to change.

    To view the list of domains hosted on a particular IP address, click the IP address entry to highlight it. The list of hosted domains using the highlighted IP address is displayed in a window to the right.

  5. Map each selected IP to the needed IP address.

    5.1. To map a selected address, click on the selected address entry. The entry will be highlighted.

    5.2. Select the address to map to:

    • To map to an existing IP address, select the Existing Address option and then select an existing address entry. The entry information is displayed in the Mapping Information column for the selected IP address entry, under Select the IP addresses to be changed.

    • To map to a new IP address that will be created during mapping, select the Create New IP address option and then enter the IP address, network mask, and network interface name. The entry information is displayed in the Mapping Information column for the selected IP address entry, under Select the IP addresses to be changed.
  6. Click Next.

    The Plesk installation will be reconfigured to use the newly specified IP addresses in place of the old ones. All relevant records in the database will be updated, network adapter settings will be changed (the old IP addresses are removed), FTP and web servers will be reconfigured, and DNS records will be updated accordingly.

Note: If the changing fails during execution, all the changes are rolled back. When connected to the server through the Remote Desktop connection, a change the server IP address will terminate the session.

More details can be found in Plesk Administration Guide.
