The creation of a subdomain fails with the following error:

    Error: mktemp: failed to create file via template `/etc/proftpd.d/50-plesk.conf.XXXXXX': No such file or directory
    Can not create temporary file


The /etc/proftpd.d/ directory is absent on the Apache Service Node.


Make sure that the /etc/proftpd.d/ directory exists on the Apache Service Node. If it is absent, create it as below:

    [root@test]# ls -ld /etc/proftpd.d/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Apr 10 15:44 /etc/proftpd.d/
