Migrating Moodle to a Plesk Linux server

Following up on some work that I started earlier in the month. I am using a Plesk Version 10 server to host
a Moodle 2.x system.

Some more config work was required to migrate the Moodle system including editing the database records to change the embedded paths (file system paths) and the embedded URL’s (absolute URL’s for data files).

The addition of an SSL certificate created a problem but it was only that the Plesk process provides for modifications to http and https as two separate files. The following needed to be added as well.


#mcedit /var/www/vhosts/your_domain_name/conf/vhost_ssl.conf


and create an entry like

<Directory /var/www/vhosts/your_domain_name/httpdocs/>
php_admin_value open_basedir "/var/www/vhosts/your_domain_name/httpdocs:/var/www/vhosts/your_domain_name/moodledata"

So that both http and https have the open_basedir restriction avoided.
