If you want to be able to upgrade to a Plesk version other than the latest stable release, you can upgrade using the interactive console.

Note: You can upgrade to Plesk Obsidian from Plesk Onyx 17.0 and later. See if your OS is supported. If you use Plesk 12.5 or earlier, upgrade to Plesk Onyx first.

Follow these steps to begin:

  1. Log in to the server via RDP.
  2. Download Plesk Installer.
  3. Launch the Windows command prompt. Change the working directory to the one in which you saved the installer binary, then run the following command:
plesk-installer.exe --console

This will launch the console in the command prompt window.

If you prefer to use a graphical interface during the upgrade, see the Upgrading Plesk for Windows Using Installer GUI topic.
