(Plesk for Windows) Changing Clients’ MySQL Server Data Location

In Plesk for Windows, you can move the clients’ MySQL server data to another location. It is useful if you are running out of space on the current disk.

To change the clients’ MySQL server data location:

  1. In the Windows Start menu, select Start image-windows.png > Plesk > Plesk Reconfigurator.

  2. Select “Change MySQL Data location”.


  3. Browse to the new desired location of the My SQL data. You can also create a new folder if necessary. We recommend that you keep the “Check destination disk space” checkbox selected.

  4. When you are satisfied with the selected location, click Next, and then click Next once again.

The moving will start. Once it is completed, you will be automatically returned to the main Plesk Reconfigurator screen.
