If you’ve come here from this article, great! if not do check it out and compare Web Panels, before settling for one.

So if you’ve already decided lets begin!

Plesk allows a server administrator to set up new websites, reseller accounts, e-mail accounts, and DNS entries through a web-based interface. In this tutorial, we will install and configure Plesk on a CentOS cloud server (steps for CentOS Linux 6 and 7). Execute all commands as root.

This video will guide you through, or just refer the steps below.


Step 1- Login As root in your server

Step 2-Installation

Run the following script

wget -O - http://autoinstall.plesk.com/one-click-installer | sh


Now, lay down your weapons, and sit back, watch the magic happen for about one and a half hour.


Step 3- Accessing Plesk

Opening Ports 8443 and 8447

vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables

Now add the following two lines just under the INPUT ACCEPT section:

-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 8443 -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 8447 -j ACCEPT

Restart the service for those changes to take effect:

service iptables restart

Viola! you are done with the installation, enjoy Plesk.
