  • Plesk Automation 11.1


You get the following error when click on Websites and Domains > Logs tab:

Error message or request description : ERROR: PleskUtilException
filemng: stat failed: Permission denied
System error 13: Permission denied


The ownership on the following directories were set incorrectly:

# ls -ld /var/www/vhosts/
dr-xr-x--- 7 sub86_49 psaserv 4096 Jan 21 11:16 /var/www/vhosts/

# ls -ld /var/www/vhosts/
dr-xr-x--- 2 root root 4096 Jan 21 11:16 /var/www/vhosts/

Direcotries should be owned by domain's system user sub86_49 and by psaserv group.


  1. Find system user for the domain in question:

    # grep /etc/passwd | grep -v web_users

    Note: Also you can find the correct system username at the Websites & Domains > Web Hosting Access > User Account.

  2. Set proper permissions for the directories below:

    chown sub86_49:psaserv /var/www/vhosts/
    chown sub86_49:psaserv /var/www/vhosts/
