  • Plesk 11.5 for Linux


How can we automate the installation of the mail server on Plesk 11.5 for Linux, a specific mail server (Qmail) which we desire when a client purchases a new VPS through our PBA-S shop?


For providing Virtuozzo Container with Parallels Plesk Panel 11.5 and QMail through PBA-S it's recommended that you create new Hosting Plan of type Virtuozzo Container with applications Pp11.5 and Pp11.5 Qmail.

Top > Billing Director > Product Manager > Hosting Plans > NEW_HOSTING_PLAN > Applications
OK      Pp11          OK      Included      Included      NO      NO
OK      Pp11 Qmail    OK      Included      Included      NO      NO

If you do not see the templates on the Applications page this means that the templates are not installed in the nodes. Install them first and synchronize with PBA-S. EZ Templates for Parallels Plesk Panel 11.5 are available on the website:

Download appropriate archive to HW node and install the rpm packages. Here you may find the details:

Information: Version-free Plesk EZ templates switching to v. 11.5

Versioned and version-free templates

(Advanced) Installation to Parallels Virtuozzo Containers

Remember to update metadata of OS template on HW node with "vzpkg update metadata ". Register and synchronize new EZ templates with PBA-S:

Top > Service Director > Virtuozzo Manager > Nodes > HW_NODE > Applications > Register Applicaitons From Node
Top > Service Director > Virtuozzo Manager > Nodes > HW_NODE > Applications > Update Synchronization State

Make sure they appear on the page. Refer to PBA-S Provider's Guide for the detail:
