Installing Plesk on CentOS Linux

In this post I’m going to describe the simple steps to install the latest release of the Plesk software on CentOS.

First make sure you are root:

sudo -s

Make sure you start with a clean starting point, remove existing instances of Apache, MySql, Cyrus and PHP:

yum remove http*
yum remove php*
yum remove cyrus*
yum remove mysql*

Make sure your CentOS distribution is fully patched:

yum update all

Let’s disable the Security Enhanced Linux feature:

setenforce 0

Go to the installation folder:

cd /usr/local/src

Download and execute the installer script:

wget -O - | sh

Finally configure the Plesk configuration using an internet browser : https://ip address of server:8443
