The key distinction between Plesk and Cpanel is that Plesk can be installed on numerous Linux distributions and even on Windows, whereas Cpanel is primarily designed for a small number of Linux distributions.
For controlling all website-related services, such as DNS, Email, databases, FTP, and others, Plesk and Cpanel are web hosting control panels.
This guide will show you how to install the Plesk control panel and set up bagisto on Ubuntu 22.04 on the AWS server.
The installation must meet the following minimal standards:
- OS- Ubuntu22.04
- RAM – 1GB
- Space- 30GB
Step 1: Update your server.
# sudo apt update
Step 2: Download Plex Installer.
To be able to download the Plesk program, we need “wget.” Then run the below command to install it if you don’t already have it:
# sudo apt install wget
Now follow these steps to get the Plesk package:
# wget http://autoinstall.plesk.com/plesk-installer
Step 3: Install the Plesk control panel.
Once the file has been downloaded, create an executable file for the Plesk installer as seen below:
# sudo chmod 755 plesk-installer
then, execute the command below to continue with the installation:
# sudo ./plesk-installer
The license terms will be presented to you after the installation has begun operating. Press ‘Enter’ after typing ‘F’ to continue.
Then you will be asked if you wish to be assisting Plesk in improving their products by exchanging information with them before proceeding to the installation.
To accept or reject this, write ‘y’ or ‘n’ here.
Now select the Plesk installation type as shown below.
Further, type ‘F’ and hit ‘Enter’ to continue after choosing the installation type. If prompted to install any missing packages, choose F and press Enter to proceed.

Provide /bin/bash shell to the user and click on apply and then ok
