Plesk provides two alternative ways to automate post-install server configuration: using either Plesk Command-line Interface (CLI) or Plesk XML API.
The two main steps in Plesk post-install configuration are:
- Specifying server administrator’s personal information and password (initial setup)
- Installing a product license key
Without these, Plesk will not function. Other settings can be configured either at the same or at a later time.
For instructions on automating Plesk post-install configuration:
- Using XML API, see Post-install Configuration Using Plesk XML API
- Using CLI, see Post-install Configuration Using Plesk CLI
If you wish to automate the installation of product license keys to new Plesk servers, it can be done via the Partner API. See Key Administrator Partner API 3.0: Developer’s Guide for instructions.
