Install Plesk on Debian OS manually

Posted: February 19, 2009 in Debian

I use plesk as my web hosting control panel

Step # 1: Verify current system

File /etc/debian_version stores current Debian version number :

$ cat /etc/debian_version


Find out kernel version
$ uname -mrs
Linux 2.6.18-6-686 i686

Step #2: Update package list

Use apt-get command:
# apt-get update

Step #3 : Update distribution

# apt-get dist-upgrade

Step #4 : Update /etc/apt/sources.list file

Open /etc/apt/sources.list file:
# pico /etc/apt/sources.list

deb etch all

Next run update to cache packages list:

# aptitude update
Now you can install Plesk. For example to install base Plesk package use:

# aptitude install psa

or you can download this using aoutoinstaller


After installation gets complete you can get the plesk password from

cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow.
