Plesk delete * files from /*/cgi-bin/test folders

It goes directly to a Plesk test page that appears as a place hold page and shows the customer that Perl, ASP, etc. are working. Some of us have already experiment with deleting the /test DIR on all sites. This appears to be the ingress.

Be careful that the customer has not put any of their files in the /cgi-bin/test DIR but it isn’t likely. There are two /cgi-binb’s. One for the main site above the root and one in/httpsdocs.


ls -lah /var/www/vhosts/*/cgi-bin/test/*
rm -fr /var/www/vhosts/*/cgi-bin/test

ls -lah /var/www/vhosts/*/httpsdocs/test/*
rm -fr /var/www/vhosts/*/httpsdocs/test
