(Optional) Set Up Upgrade Notifications

Each new Plesk build is given one of the four release tiers - testing release, early adopter release, general release, late adopter stable. The purpose of these tiers is to notify Plesk administrators when the next version of the desired quality is released so that they can schedule an upgrade to this version. To prevent Plesk administrators from upgrading to unstable Plesk versions, you can make Plesk show only releases or updates complying with the desired quality levels. If you are new to release tiers, read Before Installing Plesk.

Hiding Release Tiers

You can explicitly configure Plesk to show only upgrades that are of equal or higher quality than a certain tier (from testing to stable). To do this, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

[updates]<br>releaseTier = <strong class="placeholder"><release-tier></strong>

where <release-tier> is one of the following:

  • testing for testing release.
  • current for early adopter release.
  • release for general release.
  • stable for late adopter release.

On Linux, panel.ini is located in $PRODUCT_ROOT/admin/conf.

On Windows, panel.ini is located in %plesk_dir%\admin\conf\ (%plesk_dir% is an environment variable denoting the Plesk installation directory).
