Plesk SLL Wrapper service fails to start


Plesk uses stunnel from  as Wrapper service.
Stunnel could fail to start as it requires to be upgraded.


Upgrade stunnel using the following scenario:

1. Download the latest version of stunnel

2. Create new folder stunnel in %plesk_dir%

3. Run stunnel installer and point installation folder to %plesk_dir%\stunnel

4. Change SSL Wrapper service image path to new location by configuring the service in registry


Set it to real path for stunnel.exe in folder %plesk_dir%\stunnel

5. Replace  %plesk_bin%\stunnel\stunnel.conf with file stunnel.conf  from %plesk_bin%.

Now SSL Wrapper service should be able to start.
