    How To Install Plesk Control Panel On Linux VPS/VDS Dedicated Servers!

    Parallels Plesk is a comprehensive control panel solution used by leading hosting providers worldwide for shared, virtual and dedicated hosting. The control panel is designed to simplify the management and administration of web sites. Plesk control panelautomates a large number of tasks that allow service providers to reduce operating costs and resources while at the same time increasing profitability, efficiency and customer satisfaction.

    Here are the complete steps on "How to install Plesk 8.x on a plain VPS Hosting / Dedicated server"..

    Important Pre-Installation Tasks :

    Login to the VPS Hosting/server & execute "uname -i" to get the OS bit version so that you can download the appropriate installer package.


    Code:
    [root@server ~]# uname -i
    x86_64
    Later on, run "cat /etc/redhat-release" to check the name & version of the OS installed on the system, for downloading the appropriate installer package.


    Code:
    [root@server ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release
    CentOS release 5.2 (Final)
    Run the following 3 commands, to check if Apache, PHP & MySQL are preinstalled by the OS:


    Code:
    [root@server ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i http
    [root@server ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i php
    [root@server ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i cyrus
    [root@server ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i mysql
    If the above are found to be installed [most of the time they are] by the OS, they conflict with the applications Plesk installs, hence remove them using...


    Code:
    [root@server ~]# yum remove http*
    [root@server ~]# yum remove php*
    [root@server ~]# yum remove cyrus*
    [root@server ~]# yum remove mysql*
    Check SELinux status, we have it disabled but still... execute "getenforce" it should say "Disabled" or "Not enforcing". If it's enforcing, disable it by executing: "setenforce 0".

    Code:
    root@server [~]# getenforce
    Disabled
    Change your working directory to where you want to download the Auto-installer utility:
    Quote:
    Code:
    [root@server ~]# mkdir /root/plesk
    [root@server ~]# cd /root/plesk
    Once done, download the Auto-installer utility that suits your operating system from HERE and save it on your server's hard drive.


    Code:
    eg : [root@server plesk]# wget plesk_auto_installer_file_name
    Set the execution permission for Auto-installer:


    Code:
    eg : [root@server plesk]# chmod +x plesk_auto_installer_file_name
    Run the Auto-installer:
    Quote:
    Code:
    eg : [root@server plesk]# ./plesk_auto_installer_file_name
    Read installation notes displayed on the screen and type 'n' to proceed to the next screen. Press ENTER.

    When the installation is finished a trial license key is installed for evaluation purposes & Plesk will have started automatically..
    Now to complete the initial configuration, log in to the Plesk control panel running on your host:

    Use the username 'admin' and password 'setup' (both are case sensitive). For security reasons, change the password upon initial login..

    Enjoy going through the control panel.. I'm sure you'd like it...

    I don't think, it does support fedora core 15 ...

    Parallels Plesk Panel 9.5.4 supports upto fedora core 11 ... Newer versions of Plesk does not support any fedora officially ...

    I do feel better to choose CentOS or redhat iteslf for Webhosting needs...
