For Virtual Server

This guide will show you how to update your Plesk using the Autoinstaller.

With the Autoinstaller, Plesk provides you with a script that performs the update fully automatically.

Please note: Since the execution via the Plesk interface takes up a lot of resources and this can lead to a termination of the process at Virtual Servern, this article is limited to the command line variant of the updater.

For smaller tariffs (Virtual Server L and XL), you should first stop all running services except SSH so that sufficient resources can be reserved for the upgrade process. Otherwise it could happen that the update terminates with an error message.

First, exit Plesk:

/etc/init.d/psa stopall

You can then call the updater:


The text interface of the updater offers the same possibilities as the graphical version in the web interface. In addition, you receive additional messages that can facilitate error analysis.
