Using Plesk with Your Codero Infrastructure

Last week, we told you all about how user-friendly the Plesk control panel is, and why it’s the only tool you’ll ever need to manage many aspects of your server, including the files, applications, and email hosted on your server. Whether you’re a developer, designer, system administrator, or simply a business owner, Plesk is the ideal platform for any web professional. From the easy-to-use graphic interface and simple menu navigation to real-time deployment and compatibility with the widest selection of dedicated servers, Plesk’s ease of use is unparalleled.

We decided to follow up on our last post to answer some of the most popular questions from our customers with the Codero Cloud and Codero Dedicated Hosting who are using the Plesk platform.

I have a Codero Dedicated and/or Cloud server with Plesk installed on it, how can I find out which software applications are installed on my server?

With the Plesk Control Panel, you can check the software applications installed on your dedicated server and their respective versions. Here is how to access this tool:

  1. Login to your Plesk Control Panel using your administrative access. It was provided to you in the “Welcome Email” when the server was initially setup.
  2. Click on Tools & Settings from the navigation bar on the left.
  3. Click on Server Components.

You will now see all software components installed on your dedicated server along with their respective versions.

How do I view my Codero Dedicated or Cloud server statistics with Plesk?

Here is how you can view statistics on your dedicated server usage with the Plesk Control Panel:

  1. Login to your Plesk Control Panel. Use the information provided to you when the server was setup.
  2. Click on Tools & Settings from the navigation bar on the left.2016-07-19_1702

  • Server uptime.
  • Processor load averages for the last 1 minute, 5 minutes and 15 minutes.
  • The amount of RAM installed and used.
  • The amount of swap space used.
