Using Windows Plesk shared hosting, Application pool recycle at a scheduled time?

We are using Windows Plesk shared hosting.

The dedicated IIS App Pool is set to recycle at 1740 minutes intervals (29 hours) and we can't find a way to change that setting. The result is that each day the site goes down for a few minutes, at a time of the day we cannot control.


We would like to change that to a scheduled recycle during the night (before the 1740 minutes have elapsed).  


Is there a way to accomplish that?

Thanks in advance,

Hi @josemarcenaro


I've done a bit of work with Plesk.  Much more familiar with WHM/cPanel. 


I found this this info on the Parallel's site, does it help?

Hi SiteDoctor


Thanks for your quick response!

The administration guide you posted does not help me solve this particular issue, but it may be helpful for other purposes - I had no clue about where to start.


Thanks again
