This is how you install Plesk on your V-server

Plesk is a web-based administration tool for the administration of your STRATO V-server and is provided to you as an option. In this article, we explain how you can install this software on your V-server.

1. Install Plesk on the server
Please log in to the password protected customer area of your server. Plesk is pre-installed in the delivery state. If Plesk is not installed, please execute a new installation of, for example, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS including Plesk 10.2 under the menu option Server Configuration New installation..


By clicking on the checkbox here, you can confirm that your server should be installed again. After confirming with Next, you will have to enter the code displayed for security purposes.


Achtung Important: Wait for the notification by email saying that the server is finished with re-initialization. The re-initialization normally takes between 1 and 2 hours.

You will be able to see the status in the customer area. After completion of the new installation, you will find your root password under the menu option Server Configuration/ Server Data.

and as the password: the initial root password displayed in the customer service area

Please execute the required password change and enter the administrator information after this.
