Website on Plesk Windows Server/Plesk VPS asking for Username and password.
I have recently purchased a Windows VPS with Plesk control panel and have uploaded website files. While visiting my website it is asking for username and password authentication. Now, I haven’t set any authentication on server for any website, what shall I need do?
This is quite common with the sites hosted on windows server with plesk as a control panel. You are not allowed to acces the site whtout authentication – entering username and password. This is not a bug or issue but is related to password synchronization with IIS server. To resolve this, you will need to synchronize the password.
Below given are some simple steps that you will need to follow:
- RDP to your windows server as an administrator.
- Start>Run>cmd [this will take you to sytem command prompt]
- cd to plesk\admin\bin [shortcut is cd %plesk_bin%]
- Type websrvmng.exe –update-anon-password –domain-name=yourdomain.com
The above command will synchronize the password and you will require no more password authentication to view the content.
If this doesn’t work for you, then please open a support ticket and we’ll investigate further and fix the issue for you happily.
