How to restore default permissions on a domain?
In case default permissions on the domain folder are lost, the following actions can be performed to restore them:
In Parallels Plesk Panel (PP), go to the Domains page, mark the required domains, and click on the Check permissions button. Then uncheck the Check-only mode checkbox and click OK.
If it is necessary to repair permissions for all domains, you can launch Plesk Reconfigurator (Start > Programs > SWsoft > Plesk > Plesk Reconfigurator). When it is running, choose Repair Plesk installation, toggle on Plesk virtual hosts security, and click on the Check button.
Note: Please be aware that any custom permissions that might have been configured by customers will be replaced with the default ones after this action.
