Changing the Updates/Upgrades Source

By default, updates and upgrades for Plesk and your operating system are downloaded from the official updates server at http://installer.plesk.com.

If you want to receive Plesk updates from another location on the network:

  1. Go to Tools & Settings > Updates and Upgrades. Updater will open in a new browser window or tab.
  2. If Updater starts downloading updates and you would only like to change settings at the moment, click Cancel.
  3. Click Updates source and installation settings, and specify the source of update packages:
    • By default, the Official Plesk Updates server is selected. Specify the location where the installation files will be stored. By default, the installation files are stored in the /root/parallels directory.
    • If you select Mirror server, specify the .inf3 file location in the URL to the directory with .inf3 file field. Specify the location where the installation files will be stored. By default, the installation files are stored in the /root/parallels directory.
    • If you select Local media, specify the .inf3 file location in the Absolute path to the .inf3 file field.
  4. If you use a proxy server, select the Connect using a proxy checkbox and specify the following settings:
    • Specify proxy host name and port number in the Proxy address and port fields.
    • If this proxy server requires authentication, select the Require authentication checkbox and specify username and password.
  5. Click Save to save the settings.
