  1. Domains > <domain_name> > PHP Settings > Perfomance settings > memory_limit shows blank value if manually installed PHP is used.

  2. The value is not been saved when setting it up.


Such behavior is known as software issue with id #PPPM-3657 and will be fixed in further product updates.


  1. Find all custom PHP versions installed:

    # plesk bin php_handler --list
            id:        display name:  full version:  version:    type:                cgi-bin:      php-cli:                                   php.ini:  custom:  status:
            cgi  5.4.45 by OS vendor         5.4.45       5.4      cgi        /usr/bin/php-cgi  /usr/bin/php                               /etc/php.ini    false  enabled
        fastcgi  5.4.45 by OS vendor         5.4.45       5.4  fastcgi        /usr/bin/php-cgi  /usr/bin/php                               /etc/php.ini    false  enabled
    fastcgi-5.3                  5.3         5.3.27       5.3  fastcgi  /opt/php53/bin/php-cgi                                   /opt/php53/etc/php.ini     true  enabled
    fastcgi-5.5                  5.5         5.5.24       5.5  fastcgi  /opt/php55/bin/php-cgi                /opt/atomic/atomic-php55/root/etc/php.ini     true  enabled
    fastcgi-5.6                  5.6          5.6.0       5.6  fastcgi  /opt/php56/bin/php-cgi                                   /opt/php56/etc/php.ini     true  enabled
         module  5.4.45 by OS vendor         5.4.45       5.4   module        /usr/bin/php-cgi  /usr/bin/php                               /etc/php.ini    false  enabled

    In this case PHP with version 5.3, 5.5, 5.6 are custom and their php-cli path is absent.

  2. Edit /etc/psa/php_versions.json, add clipath, where PHP versions are 5.3, 5.5, 5.6:

    # cat /etc/psa/php_versions.json | grep clipath
  3. Apply the changes by executing the following command:

    # /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/php_handlers_control --reread
