This knowledge base is related to all Cloud VM's or servers running Linux OS that do not come with Plesk Panel pre installed. You should not run this on any of our templates that include Plesk or on our legacy VPS plans.
The information bellow can be found on the Prallels site as well: http://www.parallels.com/download/plesk/
To install the Plesk Panel you will need to connect to the server via an SSH and run one of the following commands.
A bit more information on SSH access can be found here.
- If you have the wget utility (installed by default), run
wget -O - http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer | sh
- If you have the curl utility, run
curl http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer | sh
- If you have the fetch utility, run
fetch -o - http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer | sh
This will download the auto installer, check for the version of Linux and download the correct installation files for Plesk.
The Firewall rules in the cloud1 control panel will need to be modified to allow traffic to your machine on port 8443.
More on firewall rules can be found at: Firewall rules
After this is performed you can connect to the Plesk configuration by going to http://your.vm-ip-address:8443
As well please bear in mind that you will require a Plesk licence. Information on how to acquire one and install it can be found in the following knowledgabase: How do I install Plesk Licence?
