How to Install Plesk Onyx on Linux CentOS?

Plesk is a popular website control panel, and it makes managing your website easy. Although it is easy to install, going through our tutorial will be very helpful and most likely save your time.

Before proceeding with the installation, we recommend that you use the correct hostname.


What are the requirements?
- Fresh CentOS 7 or CentOS 8 installed on your VPS/Server.


How to install Plesk Onyx?

Step 1:
Log into your server via an SSH Client with root permissions.

Then enter this command:

sh 


The installation will begin and may take between 20 and 30 minutes. If it shows a hostname-related error, do not quit the installation. Sometimes Plesk only shows warnings and provides you with instructions on how to fix your problem.



Once Plesk is installed, it will display a congratulations message with your Plesk control panel URL.

Copy the full URL provided by Plesk and paste it into the browser. If the URL doesn't work, you will need to open a port in your firewall. You can check it by disabling the firewall and then accessing the URL. If it starts working, it means you need to open a Plesk port in the firewall.


Step 2: If prompted for accepting cookies, acknowledge it, and enter your name and email address in Contact Information.



Step 3: Scroll down to the bottom of the page and under the password field, enter the password or generate a new password but make sure that you stored it in a safe place.




Step 4: Under Select your license type, should you have a license key, enter your Plesk Onyx license key or use a trial license by choosing Proceed with a full-featured trial license.

 

Final Step: Scroll down to the end of the page, read and accept the End-User License Agreement and then click on the Enter Plesk button.



Congratulations, you have successfully installed Plesk Onyx. Now you can access your Plesk administrator area using root login details or with the admin user name with the password you set in Step 3.

Customer Feedback

  • Since our clan first got a server with RackSRV we've had nothing but good experiences. The reliability and cost of services were top notch and support are a great help on the very rare occasions they're needed (and that's mostly due to us).

  • Great service super impressed with your infrastructure. I really loved your server I but I did not get enough traffic to my site to justify keeping it. You guys rock. I will be back when I have more servers needed.

    Eduardo
  • We have had excellent service from Jon and his team. Originally a bit sceptical as RackSRV pricing was much lower than most, but they have far exceeded my expected level of service, in terms of hardware, network and assistance. Would highly recommend to anybody.

  • I have been a customer of RackSRV with three co-located servers for over 5 years now and cannot fault the reliability of the service or the commitment of Jon and his team when I have needed assistance. I would happily recommend RackSRV to anyone :)

  • I got to know Jon through a friend of mine, and when my last host was yet again unhelpful I thought it was time to change. I have had various hosts for my clan in the 8+ years we have been playing, and to be honest I dread the change to a new host. But ever since that time 2 years ago now, I can honestly say that I hav...

  • Excellent support; good people to work with. Jon and Lee have been great to deal with, and I would not hesitate to recommend Racksrv. They do a very good job of communicating with clients, and are always quick to answer any queries.
