How to install Plesk on CenOS 7

Plesk is a commercial web hosting platform. The Plesk platform was developed in Novosibirsk and first released by the American company Plesk Inc. In July 2003, it was acquired by SWsoft. This unique dashboard allows users to manage a website, databases, email and domains.

In order to successfully install Plesk on CentOS, you must have the following:

  • Installed CentOS x64 Server
  • The presence of root user
  • Valid Plesk License

Unattended Plesk Installation

First, you need to log in as root user. You need to assign a vps domain name (replace with your email address)

hostnamectl set-hostname
sudo sh -c "wget -O - | sh /dev/stdin --source --target /tmp/plesk-installation --select-product-id plesk --select-release-latest --installation-type "Typical" --notify-email"

This installation takes 7-10 minutes. Please wait until the Plesk installation is complete. Upon completion, you will receive relevant information on the completion of the installation in the console.

Unblock the Plesk admin port

You need to access this panel. To do this, the Plesk Admin Port (8443) must be unblocked using the URL provided upon completion. Please enter the following command:

firewall-cmd --permanent --add-port=8443/tcp
firewall-cmd --reload

You will need to enter this URL and then you will see the administrator’s interface.
After that, you specify the necessary information: login, password, Plesk license key. After that, complete the installation.
