Meeting Installation Requirements

Installation on Windows

Before you install Parallels Hosting Suite 9.5 for Windows on your server, make sure
the following requirements are met:



Microsoft Windows 2003 Server or Microsoft Windows 2008 Server is installed
on
your system.



An IP address is configured in OS prior to the product installation. The IP address
received via DHCP will be converted into a static one when you change IP pool.



In order for your server to support domain performance configuring, enable Qo
S
Packet Scheduler service.



Internet Information Server (IIS) is installed on your system with WWW and FTP
support.

Attention
: Parallels Hosting Suite must be installed only with the IIS web server.
Otherwise, Parallels Plesk Billing might not work properl
y.



Your server does not work as a Windows Domain Controller (neither primary nor
backup). If this requirement is not fulfilled, a system crash may occur during the
creation of domains with certain names.

Attention
: Parallels Hosting Suite must be installed

on NTFS partitions. We strongly
recommend that you install it on a clean server. Only the required operating system
components should be installed. If you have to choose a role for your server, select the
Application Server role.

The following things shou
ld be taken in consideration before installing Parallels Hosting
Suite:



If you want to use SSI, ASP and FrontPage services, select the respective
components during the installation of IIS.



If you want to install the Tomcat component, please make sure that
the folder
where Tomcat will be installed has no national or special characters in its name.
The following characters are allowed: basic Latin characters, numerals, space and
the following symbols: !#$%&()+,
-
.:;=@[]_{}.



If you want to use ColdFusion:



Cold
Fusion should be installed separately before installing Parallels Hosting
Suite.



If you intend to use ColdFusion support, ColdFusion should be installed on the
server with
Default Web Site

chosen on the
Web Server Selection

step of installation.
Otherwise,

if you choose
All IIS Websites
, ColdFusion support will always be
activated for all domains that have physical hosting, regardless of the
corresponding check box status.



If you want to use Microsoft SQL Server DBMS support in Parallels Hosting Suite:



Micr
osoft SQL Server should be installed and configured to use standard or
mixed security mode. By default, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 is installed.
Alternatively, you can select to install Microsoft SQL Server 2008, but there are
the following prerequisites to

it:


8

Meeting Installation Requirements




Windows Installer 4.5;



Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 (it can be obtained with Microsoft .NET
Framework 3.5 SP1);



Windows Server 2003 SP2 or higher.



If Microsoft SQL Server is not installed, you can select Microsoft SQL Server
2005 Express Edition o
n Windows 2003 platform and Microsoft SQL Server
2005 Express Edition on Windows 2008 platform to be installed with
administrator name '
sa
' and random password, which you can change later on
the
Home
>
Database servers
page.



If you want to use external Mic
rosoft SQL Server (in case it was installed before
Parallels Hosting Suite), you need to supply the required password on the
Home
>
Database servers
page.



If you have AVG antivirus on your system, you need to disable it during Parallels
Hosting Suite insta
llation, upgrade or template deployment, to avoid its conflict with
DrWeb. AVG detects drwebcom.exe as a virus and prevents file coping. This leads
to the installation failure.

Due to the large quantity of various software available on the market, Parallel
s cannot
guarantee compatibility with all third
-
party software products, except when explicitly
stated otherwise. Please exercise special caution when using various antivirus and
firewall software that has issues with blocking of potentially dangerous prog
rams,
because such software is known to malfunction when working on the server with
installed Parallels Hosting Suite.


Installation on Linux

It is recommended that you install Parallels Hosting Suite on a clean operating system.





The Parallels Hosting Suite 9.5 for Windows includes:



Parallels Plesk Panel 9.5



Parallels Plesk Sitebuilder 4.5 (the Panel component)



Parallels Plesk Billing 6.0



To install the Suite:

1.

Down
load and install Parallels Plesk Panel including component
Sitebuilder in one of these ways:




Using the
SetupPlesk.exe

Installing Parallels Hosting Suite for Wi
ndows


Installing Parallels Plesk Panel and
Sitebuilder

Parallels Plesk Panel is available through the
SetupPlesk.exe

installer, which
downloads and installs all the required prerequisites and components depending

on
your installation choices. Select the custom installation type to install the Sitebuilder
component. The detailed instructions on how to do it are given below.



To install Parallels Plesk Panel and Parallels Sitebuilder:

1.

Log in to your system as Adminis
trator or another user with
Administrator privileges.

2.

Make sure that you have the Parallels Plesk Panel installation package
ready. You can download the required Parallels Plesk Panel installation
package from Parallels Web site at
http://www.parallels.com/download/plesk/products/
.

3.

Run the Parallels Plesk Panel installer by running the
SetupPlesk.exe

file.

4.

The installer will check your system for required components and
determine whether your

system is ready to install Parallels Plesk Panel
or not. If some of the required components are missing, the installer will
run Parallels Plesk Panel for Windows Prerequisites Wizard to install
the missing components. In this case, click
Next >

to proceed

with the
installing the components and click
Next >

again after the required
components are installed.

5.

Read the license agreement. Select the
I accept the license agreement

option, if you agree with all terms and conditions stated in the license
agreement
, and click
Next >

to proceed.

If your server already hosts domains on IIS 6.0 or mail accounts on a mail server
supported by Parallels Plesk Panel, you will be prompted to migrate the existing
data to Parallels Plesk Panel. Refer to the In
-
Place Migration

to Parallels Plesk
Panel for Windows Administrator's Guide for more information.

6.

Choose the installation paths for Parallels Plesk Panel and its
applications (
Destination Folder
), Parallels Plesk Panel and its applications
data (
Application Data Folder
) a
nd virtual hosts data (
Virtual Hosts Destination
Folder
). Click
Next >
to proceed.

7.

Choose the
Custom
installation type and click
Next >
.

Note:

Sitebuilder is included into the
Custom

installation by default.

The next screen will prompt you to choose the Pa

2.

Click
Next

two times.

8.

Specify the administrator password for default login ("admin") used for
accessing Parallels Plesk Panel
after the installation.

The password cannot be shorter than 4 symbols and longer than 15 symbols. For
security reasons, the password should be more than 8 symbols, and it should
comprise a combination of letters, numbers, and punctuation; dictionary words
and
proper names should be avoided.

9.

Leave the
Enable Shared W3WP Desktop

check box selected if you want IIS
to allocate one shared desktop for all World Wide Web Worker
Processes to optimize server memory usage. Click
Next >

to proceed
with the installatio
n.

Windows has a notion of desktops where applications write their output to. By
default, IIS allocates a new desktop for each application pool it creates. However,
application pools do not have any graphical output and this could be a waste of
memory to a
llocate separate desktops for each of them. Leaving the
Enable the use
of a Shared W3WP Desktop

check box selected allows IIS to allocate one shared
desktop for all World Wide Web Worker Processes (W3WP). Note that sometimes
this setting could cause proble
ms. Use the following Microsoft resources to obtain
more information on this topic:

will instal
l Parallels Plesk
Panel with selected options. Click
Next >

to proceed.

11.

The installer will start the components installation process. When the
installation of is finished, click

.

The Panel will start working right after the installation is finished.
