  • Applies to:

  • Plesk 11.0 for Linux


  • Unable to apply firewall configuration error message displayed:

    Another administrator is activating a configuration now.
  • Configuring and activating this firewall in Plesk takes a very long time


Attempt to apply configuration failed and further updates are locked.


  1. Make sure that other admin users are not trying to change firewall settings.

  2. Check if /usr/local/psa/var/modules/firewall/safeact.confirm file exists, if yes:

    a. Stop Plesk engine:

    # service sw-cp-server stop

    b. Remove lock:

    `# rm -i  /usr/local/psa/var/modules/firewall/safeact.confirm 

    c. Start Plesk:

    # service sw-cp-server start
  3. Try to configure firewall again.
