Installing Skins to Plesk

When you have finished with modifying all the necessary files, pack the directory into a ZIP archive, upload it to the server, and then install the skin as described below. If you modified the skin directly on the server, then you can pack the skin into a ZIP archive and install it on other servers when needed.

Note: If you access Plesk at the reseller level, and do not have the administrator's access to the server over SSH or Remote Desktop, contact your hosting provider for assistance with installing the package.

To install the skin customized by the server administrator, run the following command:

branding_theme -i -vendor admin -source <strong class="placeholder"><path/></strong>

Where <path/> is the path to the ZIP archive with the theme. On Windows systems, you need to specify an absolute path to the file, for example: c:\tmp\

To install the skin customized by a reseller, run the following command:

branding_theme -i -vendor <strong class="placeholder"><reseller's username></strong> -source <strong class="placeholder"><path/></strong>
Custom Skins Location

Skins are installed into the following locations:

  • On Windows systems: C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\admin\htdocs\theme-skins\<skin-name>\.
  • On Linux systems: /usr/local/psa/admin/htdocs/theme-skins/<skin-name>/.

Where <skin-name> is the name of your custom skin.
