Worked through a couple of directory ownership issues with Mike on this one (Thanks, Mike!) and came up with this procedure that seems to work just fine.

Assumption: Domain has been created under Plesk and is functioning and resolving properly.

1. Create License Key
2. Create MySQL database (I did this in Plesk, you can choose the method you prefer.)
3. Upload (as root) soholaunch-pro-46-040315.tgz to /home/httpd/vhosts/<domainname.tld>/httpdocs/
4. SSH as root
5. cd /home/httpd/vhosts/<domainname.tld>/httpdocs/
6. tar -xzvf soholaunch-pro-46-040315.tgz
7. rm soholaunch-pro-46-040315.tgz
8. cd ..
9. chown apache.apache httpdocs (Make a note of the username first!)
10. Edit /home/httpd/vhosts/<domainname.tld>/conf/vhosts.conf as follows:

<Directory /home/httpd/vhosts/<domainname.tld>/httpdocs/>
php_admin_flag engine on
php_admin_flag register_globals on
php_admin_flag short_open_tag on
php_admin_flag safe_mode off

11. Restart Apache
12. Browse to http://www.<domainna...admin/index.php
13. Login as admin, admin
14. Verify URL and path data in left of screen.
15. Enter database name, database username and password in right of screen.
16. Submit
17. Cancel setup wizard
18. Logout of soholaunch
19. chown <username>.psaserv httpdocs
20. Logout of SSH session

This also works, with proper path adjustments, for subdomains created within the domain account using Plesk.

Kid-tested, mother-approved on:
RedHat 9
Plesk 7.1.2 and 7.1.4
PHP 4.3.8 and 4.3.9
MySQL 3.23.58 and 4.0.21
and survived upgrades between the noted versions.

Hope this helps!

I used the method stated and found out two things:

I am currently using a VPS and Plesk 7.5 cp an RPM install, and after following the descibed directions I probably chown httpdocs in the wrong area or something is different in 7.5 reloaded because now any new files created by the system still show up as apache.apache rights.

I have restored the httpdocs folders owner to the proper setting and converted all files back to the current user and owner but after using Soho new pages show up with apache.apache ownership again and then cannot finish the install because I do not have rights.

This error is affecting other domains on my server. I installed a fresh copy of sohoadmin to a different domain and ran install and found files with apach.apache ownership there too.

If anyone has a correction for this or what has happened to the httpdocs ownership at a vhosts level would be helpful.

I also my have found a quicker fix procedure than above and I'll post it for all users of Plesk after I resolve this issue and test a coulpe more installs. hopefully by the end of the day. I usually don't quit untill is it done.

Hi All

Wanted to understand how we can install Soholaunch on a new site.

Earlier we were using this license on some other website and now we want to use this license for new website going to launch.

Looking forward to your earliest reply,
