Support Requests / Re: Migrated to plesk

You can get most of your questions answered via the Plesk Documentation:

FTP details should be, with the user/password you use on freepgs (unless you changed it on Plesk).

From what I understand, the MySQL 5 server is staying after FreePgs main goes down, and localhost will be gone, however, I would recommend you move your databases to Plesk to manange them. There is not currently a PMA for MySQL5 on the Plesk server, you can continue using the one on the main freepgs server.

Your url on plesk will be either your domain, or, from what I've seen, and this should be included only if you don't have ANY domains of your own.(Wow, three questions answered at once!)

Configuring your domain: Could you please be more specific?

Any other questions feel free to ask.
I don't know of a way via curl (Honestly, I've never used curl, so I'm no help there), but on your other question:

You can find out what functions are disabled via a phpinfo() call.

The current functions disabled list is as follows:

This domain has been added to your FreePgs account to the same account as

In the future, please use the contact form for faster responses. Forum accounts are separate from the hosting accounts, so we cannot use that as proof of account ownership. (The reason this was processed was because I sent back a reply from the contact form asking for the nameservers to be changed before the domain was added.)

Thank you, "Ben"

Problem is with security. Say you have a file uploader that isn't validating files properly, and it allows you to upload a .php file. Someone uploads a file similar to that, and manages to delete all files on your entire site.

It's a never-ending battle between security and functionality.

Okay, with the massive amount of questions we've been getting on this, I figured it might as well be useful to make a topic about this.

Your files won't delete via FTP if they were created via PHP.  Your files also won't delete via PHP if they were created via FTP. To delete php files, you're best bet is to use the function below.

Taking code from the php manual (
function RecursiveFolderDelete $folderPath ){
  if ( 
is_dir $folderPath ) ){
    foreach ( 
scandir $folderPath ) as $value ){
      if ( 
$value != "." && $value != ".." ){
$value $folderPath "/" $value;
        if ( 
is_dir $value ) ){
RecursiveFolderDelete $value );
        }elseif ( 
is_file $value ) ){
unlink $value );
rmdir $folderPath );


Call this function on any sub-folder on your account, and anything left once this function is done should be able to be deleted via ftp.

If you still have problems after this, feel free to use the contact form and we'll help from there.
Your url is currently pending.

It may take up to 24 hours for this to be added, as only admin can make the change required.

Thank you, "Ben"

Seems it's showing them all as "down". Maybe something to do with the IP change recently?

Hopefully it's a quick and easy fix.

I don't see any setting that can change fsocketopen() per account.

Each settings has to be custom built and put onto the system by admin, so that would have to be something he looks into, however, I doubt it will be anytime soon if at all that this happens.
You can set up two subdomains per account to folders on that account.
Just send it through the contact form.

Yes, Ruby was disable a long time ago. If I remember correctly, this was due to there not being many ways to limit the usage of these languages, and they allowed exploits on the server.

Edit: Here's something from the site news a long time ago...

Title: Perl, Ruby, And Python

Perl, Ruby, and Python have been disabled globally.

This is due to the increased number of fraudulent files appearing in some users accounts and the inability to restrict access with these languages.

Users who need Perl or Python can be moved to the Plesk server. Users needing Ruby will have to purchase an account through LVCS.Net

Sorry for the late response. As always, the contact form or emails is always a faster way to get a response.

Fsocketopen is disabled because of all the abuse it receives. It is now disabled permanantly.

From what I can tell, your contact form has already been answered. I'm reading this post less than 24 hours from the time of posting too.

We do this as free time, so we can't devote 8 hour days here everyday. We do try and get everything dealt with within 24 hours though.

I run a domain off of FreePgs, so I'll check about the spam now.

Edit: Doesn't seem to be any spam sent.. could be just someone spamming your mail.

If you have access to your mail settings, you could set up an account of that email, and have it set up to automatically delete them.
