To install the Panel on Linux- or Windows-based servers, use the Parallels Installer utility. The utility connects to the Parallels Updates server where the Panel packages are stored, retrieves required packages and installs them.
The Parallels Installer utility is available for downloading from http://www.parallels.com/products/plesk/download/. There are several distributions of Parallels Installer created for different operating systems and platforms, so be sure to obtain the Parallels Installer that matches your host operating systems. Normally, Parallels Installer binaries are distributed under names in the following format:
<operating system version>
<platform>. Parallels Installer works in either via a Web graphical user interface or command line.
If you run Linux and wish to quickly install the latest version of the Panel in the typical configuration, we recommend that you use our separate utility One-Click Installer. Learn more about this tool in a corresponding section of this chapter.
After the installation, perform the initial configuration of the Panel. Until the Panel is initialized, any other operations are prohibited. Initialization sets the Panel administrator password, e-mail, and contact information.
