Instructions

READ ME FIRST

  • Please note that third-party software is not guaranteed to be compatible with your server, even if it is installed through the Application Vault.
  • The Application Vault does not allow you to install applications directly in your document root - you need to choose a subfolder. (Example: http://example.com/blog/). If you want to install your application in your document root, you will need to install them manually.
  1. Log into the Plesk Control Panel for your domain.
  2. Click on the Applications tab.
