Turning off safe_mode and open_basedir in Plesk

Create a "vhost.conf" file in "/var/www/vhosts/<DOMAIN.TLD>/conf/"

<Directory /var/www/vhosts/<DOMAIN.TLD>/httpdocs>
php_admin_value safe_mode off
php_admin_value open_basedir none

Rebuild the domain configs for the particular host via:

/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/websrvmng -u --vhost-name=<DOMAIN.TLD>

or rebuild all via:

# /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/websrvmng -a

Increase upload_max_filesize

Add the below mentioned lines to increase the upload_max_filesize to 15M. You will need to increase the post_max_size to be more that the upload_max_filesize and depending on memory limits, it may also need to be increased.

php_admin_value post_max_size 20M
php_admin_value upload_max_filesize 15M
