Release Notes

Parallels is pleased to introduce the new Micro-Update #8 for the 11.1 version of Parallels Plesk Automation.

The 11.1 MU#8 update is recommended for all Plesk Automation users and includes general functionality fixes that improve the stability, compatibility, and security of your Plesk Automation server.

To ensure optimal server reliability and security, Parallels strongly recommends keeping your operating system and Plesk Automation software up-to-date.

What's Changed

The following new features have been implemented:

[+] Running PPA behind NAT. Administrators can configure PPA to run behind a router with NAT.
[+] Notifications for customers and resellers. Administrators can set up custom e-mail notifications about PPA events for customers and resellers.
[+] Troubleshooting improvements. Administrators can use the services_on_node tool to check whether service nodes run all the required services and whether all the required TCP ports are open on the nodes.

The following features have been improved:
 
[*] The performance of the migration tool was improved.
[*] PHP 5.4 is now automatically installed on Windows-based service nodes.

The following bugs have been fixed:

[-] Administrators could not register Windows-based service nodes if the administrator's password contained the ^ symbol.
[-] Customers subscribed to service plans without shell access could switch on shell access for their accounts in Panel.
[-] After migration from Plesk 10.4 or later, subdomains could not be resolved in the DNS.
[-] When two user accounts with coinciding system user names were migrated from Plesk to PPA, the migration tool renamed one of them to avoid conflicts. After migration, the website owner whose system user account was renamed could no longer edit the files of their site.
[-] Auxiliary users were migrated without mail accounts if, during migration, the corresponding subscription was not yet provisioned in PPA.
[-] Failed removal of a provider's branding subscription resulted in the inability to create a new branding subscription.
[-] Mail services were not properly switched off for providers' branding subscriptions. This caused issues with deleting the subscriptions.
