  • Applies to:
  • Plesk 11.0 for Linux
  • Plesk 11.5 for Linux


When Plesk user changes any scheduled task, 'SHELL' variable is changed from '/bin/sh' to '/usr/local/psa/bin/chrootsh'. It causes some scheduled tasks to fail, as it is not possible to get access to system binaries.


This is Plesk internal issue PPPM-744, which is expected to be fixed in future Plesk updates.


Use 'domain' utility to change 'SHELL' variable:

#/usr/local/psa/bin/domain -u -shell '/bin/sh'
