Installing Plesk for Linux Using Installer Console

If you want to select specific Plesk components for installation, you can install Plesk using the interactive console. Follow these steps to begin:

  1. Obtain the installer script

    Download the installer script:

    # wget

    Enable execution mode for the downloaded installer script:

    # chmod +x ./plesk-installer

  2. (Optional) During installation, Plesk configures firewalld, at which time runtime firewalld rules are lost. To preserve the currently configured firewalld runtime rules, execute the following command:


    However, in this case, you must manually open the ports required for Plesk to operate. You can do it via firewalld or the Plesk Firewall extension.

  3. Launch the installer

    Run the script to launch the interactive installer for the latest stable Plesk version in command line:

    # sh ./plesk-installer

    In the course of installation you will be asked a series of questions. You will be able to choose suitable options as well as go back to correct already selected options if necessary.


    Run the installer script with the --all-versions option to make all Plesk versions available for installing:

    # sh ./plesk-installer --all-versions


    Run the installer script with the --tier TIER_NAME option to view the latest available versions with the specified release tier:

    # sh ./plesk-installer --tier testing


    For information on Plesk Release Tiers, see Plesk Release Tiers.

To learn more about the installation script, run:

# ./plesk-installer --help

When the installation process is complete, follow the few simple steps to configure Plesk for work as described here: Plesk Single Server Post-install Configuration.
