Chapter 4. Downloading The Plesk Server Administrator Software

Once you purchase Plesk Server Administrator (PSA), you will be emailed your key information. This key enables you to activate the software for the purchased number of domains. Prior to installing the key, you must download and install the PSA software. This can be done directly from the Plesk website.

  1. Go to to download the PSA software.

  2. You will be prompted to login. If you are not an already registered customer in our system, you are a new customer, and need to register before you can proceed with downloading the product. If you are already registered as a Plesk customer, enter your user ID and password to proceed.

  3. In the frame on the right you will be able to select the appropriate PSA release version. This will take you to the main download page for the respective release.

  4. Click on the appropriate PSA version. Keep in mind when selecting your version that selection is not only limited to the operating system (OS) being used. There are two separate installation methods available for the RedHat OS. You can either select the PSA RPM or the standard PSA Self-Extracting install which includes the complete install of all your system services. For typical PSA users it is recommended to use the PSA Self-Extracting installation as this simplifies significantly the installation process.

  5. Once you have selected the appropriate PSA version, you will be prompted to choose a location on your computer to which to download the software.

  6. After indicating the download location, click OK button in the Download file box and the download will begin.

  7. When the download is complete, the Plesk Server Administrator is ready to be installed on your server.


We strongly recommend that you download the installation instructions from, or follow the instructions on the Installing Plesk Software page. Review of and careful attention to the installation instructions will help ensure proper and complete installation of the software.
