Plesk5 Cleanup

We have been monitoring a few user databases on the Plesk5 server due to horrible performance lately.

We have found around 10 abandoned sites running forums or CMS scripts that were just being used by spammers to post links.

These folders have been renamed.  Eventually, the database will be removed to speed up the statistics run.

One such database was 1.4GB in size.

Legitimate users should notice improved performance on the Plesk5 server.  Additional cleanup may be performed.

We will most likely do the same cleanup on Plesk4 and Plesk6 to speed performance as there are most likely some abandoned sites being used by spammers there as well.

Thank you, Admin
