This is a quick how-to for anybody that is tired of the Virtuozzo / Parallels spam in the upper right hand corner of the Plesk 9.x interface. After all, how much of a discount did they offer you on your license to place their advertising on your server? That's what I thought.
Parallels has done a fairly good job of hiding the code that actually displays their logo and their advertisement for Virtuozzo, but it's also fairly easy to get rid of. So take back control of your server and clean up the GUI.
A. Remove the "Parallels - Optimized Computing" logo image. This procedure will actually create a new image to replace the one hawking Parallels' wares. 1. Create 1px transparent GIF 2. Name the new 1px transparent GIF "def_parallels_logo.gif" 3. Upload to /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/skins/vista/images/
Depending on your browser, you may need to reload the top frame in order to see the change.
B. Remove the text that says "Discover Parallels Virtuozzo Containers" We will be removing the text entirely. 1. Edit the file /usr/local/psa/admin/plib/locales/en-US/common_messages_en-US.php 2. Find Line 65, which looks like this: 'ui__promotion/virtuozzo__promotion_top' => 'Discover <b>Parallels<br>Virtuozzo Containers</b>', 3. Edit Line 65 to look like this: 'ui__promotion/virtuozzo__promotion_top' => '',
Now you're on your way to enjoying a happier life without the spam and garbage.
