Installation Script Examples (Linux)

This section provides notes on implementation and execution of an installation script, and also presents a couple of installation script samples.

Implementation and Execution Notes
  • To avoid being prompted for password each time you connect via SSH to the servers where Plesk should be installed, place your public key to the list of authorized keys of a user on whose behalf the script is run on each server (see SSH documentation for details on the procedure).
  • If you have a local mirror of the Plesk updates server (as described in Appendix C: Mirroring Plesk updates Server), use the following option:

    --source <mirror URL>

  • By default, all downloaded packages are stored under the /root directory. To use another directory, use the following option:

    --target <directory-name>


This script performs a typical installation of the latest Plesk version on the specified servers.



for current_server in $SERVERS_LIST; do
ssh -f root@$current_server 'wget -O - | sh /dev/stdin --source --target /tmp/plesk-installation --select-product-id plesk --select-release-latest --installation-type "Typical" --notify-email'
