I use Plesk and I have three domains and subdomains with different ngnix configs.
At the moment I change the ngnix config in the /etc/ngnix/plesk.conf.d/vhost/manual after every update, because my changes are being overwritten by the httpdmng.

Now to my question; Can I create a separate template in /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/folder for each domain?

mydomain1 use the template from /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/mydomain1/nginxDomainVirtualHost.php

mydomain2 use the template from /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/mydomain2/nginxDomainVirtualHost.php



  1. Plesk really shouldn’t have its core edited. When you need domain level config changes there’s a file you need to edit outside that file. Under Apache that file was called vhost.conf under the directory for your domain. It would then append that to the base config. It looks like nginx uses a similar process.

    Based on this post here’s what you need to do

    Here steps how to add custom include in nginx virtual host config:

    mkdir /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/templates/custom/domain


    add in

     <?php if (file_exists($VAR->domain->physicalHosting->vhostDir . '/conf/nginx.conf')): ?> 
     include <?php echo $VAR->domain->physicalHosting->vhostDir;?>/conf/nginx.conf; 
     <?php endif ?>

    /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpdmng –reconfigure-all # to apply new
    configuration for all domains

    As result, if domain has conf/nginx.conf – it will be included into
    virtual host config.

  2. In case someone come across this post, for plesk 12 you just create vhost_nginx.conf in the /var/www/vhost/DOMAINE_NAME/conf/ directory and then run /usr/local/psa/admin/bin/httpdmng to get the file included in last_nginx.conf
