To upgrade 8.x or 9.x versions of Parallels Plesk Panel to the latest version via the command line, follow the instructions given below.
Important: Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5 is not upgraded. Alternatively, the new version of Web Presence Builder (former SiteBuilder) installs beside the previous one. Hence, you have the opportunity to manage existing sites in Sitebuilder 4.5 and create new sites either in Web Presence Builder or in SiteBuilder 4.5. The upgrade of existing sites to the new format is performed manually.
Important: If you used Parallels Plesk Billing, add the Customer & Business Manager component to the list of components to upgrade.
To update or upgrade your Panel through the command line:
chmod +x parallels_products_installer_file_name

Note: As described in the section Before Upgrading Panel, you can select a Panel build for an upgrade depending on its release tier. By default, Installer shows you only the latest general and late adopter releases. To be able to upgrade to other Panel releases, use the following Installer options:
--all-versions to view all available Panel versions.
--tier <release_tier> to view the latest available versions with the specified release tier.
You can choose to upgrade from a local medium, the official Parallels Updates server, or another site. By default, the official server is selected. If you wish to retrieve installation files from a local medium or network storage:
Note:If you are running Windows, it is possible to use local system paths when specifying the source. Network shares cannot be used directly, only if you preliminarily map a network drive to a local drive.
Tip: The selected packages are marked with [*] symbols. The packages that are already installed and do not require updating are marked with [=] symbols. The component groups that contain selected components are marked with [.]. To select or deselect a package, type the corresponding number and press ENTER..
The packages will be downloaded and installed.
Forcing integration with Business Manager
If you upgrade Panel with Business Manager, the components require some time (not more than five minutes) to set up integration after the upgrade is completed. During this period, you may not see Business Manager links in Panel, Business Manager may require your password to log in, and you may see a message about invalid credentials when logging in.
If you want to force the integration, log in to Business Manager and reconnect Panel manually. To do this, go to Home, group Sync Statistics, click the corresponding link, select Panel ID, and click Reconnect.
