Install Plesk on Ubuntu with Plesk Autoinstaller
In the last article I introduced some server management tools (German Only) (Plesk, Froxlor, EHCP). Today I’ll show you how to install Plesk on an Ubuntu 16.04 server with the Plesk Autoinstaller.
Preparing the server
I am assuming that your server is freshly created. If you have just created a server at gridscale, it’s already up to date. If your vendor handles updates differently, update your server with the following command:
$sudo apt-get -y update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade
Installing Plesk with the Plesk Autoinstaller
Plesk offers an autoinstaller that takes care of most of the work for us. Simply use the following command:
$sh <(curl https://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer || wget -O - https://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer)
If everything worked, you should see something like this:
Congratulations! The installation has been finished. Plesk is now running on your server. To complete the configuration process, browse either of the URLs: * https://IP:8443/login?secret=UOewbI0hT2vNUdiktwlJ6FpwryfmaaaaaDgx2hTQ%3D * https://meine-domain.tld:8443/login?secret=UOewbI0hT2vNUdiktwlJ6FpwryfmaaaaaDgx2hTQ%3D Use the username 'admin' to log in. To log in as 'admin', use the 'plesk login' command. You can also log in as 'root' using your 'root' password. Use the 'plesk' command to manage the server. Run 'plesk help' for more info. Use the following commands to start and stop the Plesk web interface: 'service psa start' and 'service psa stop' respectively. If you would like to migrate your subscriptions from other hosting panels or older Plesk version to this server, please check out our assistance options: https://www.plesk.com/professional-services/
Follow one of the two addresses marked with “*” that the client displays to you by copying it into a new tab
Setting up Plesk
During configuration, the first step asks you to choose a “View Selector”. Choose one that suits you best, If you are asked for a login, you can login here with “root” and your root password.
The next step asks for a “hostname”. You can enter a top-level domain that points to your server via A-Record.
Under “Default IP address” you can choose which IP address should be preferred.
Create your admin password and click “OK”.
In the next step of the installation, you are asked to provide your personal data for registration. Then accept the terms and conditions and click “OK”.
In the penultimate step, you are asked to deposit your license.
Lastly, you need to give the login credentials for FTP access and confirm with “OK”.
After a short setup, PLESK should now be ready.
