Installation of Magento  Web application on Parallels Plesk Panel server fails with "Warning: You have specified incorrect values" while all fields are filled properly.


Magento installation settings are specified in the %plesk_dir%\var\cgitory\magento-\APP-META.xml file. You configure the file when change parameters on Application installation page in Parallels Plesk Panel.
The APP-META.xml contains the following part:

<setting id="use_modrewrite" type="boolean" default-value="false">
        <name>Use Web Server (Apache) Rewrites</name>
          You could enable this option to use web server rewrites functionality for improved search engines optimization.
          Please make sure that mod_rewrite is enabled in Apache configuration.

The modrewrite field is defined in the application APP-META.xml, but is not manageable thus not displayed on Application installation page in Parallels Plesk Panel, so you cannot insert any value in there. 
However empty values are not allowed for modrewrite settings that is why installation stopps.

Please the passage above from %plesk_dir%\var\cgitory\magento-\APP-META.xml file.
