Modules not actually missing

In many cases, the modules are not actually missing, but have been renamed, depreciated, or are not needed.

  1. Visit the Plesk Support website to see a list of modules that can be ignored.
  2. If your module is listed, you can simply ignore the warning message and continue to migrate normally.

Modules are missing

If your module is not listed on the Plesk Support website, you will want to manually install the missing module.

  1. Connect to your server using SSH.
  2. Run the following command. Be sure to replace module_name with your actual module:
    yum install module_name
  3. Occasionally, the module name in the warning message doesn't match the package name. In this case, you can run the following command to perform a search:
    yum search module_name | grep -i apache
  4. After the module has been installed, you can re-attempt the migration.
