[HOWTO] Enable PHP 5.3 support on Plesk Linux

  • Parallels Plesk 11.0 for Linux
  • Parallels Plesk 10.x for Linux


To enable PHP 5.3 support on a Parallels Plesk Panel server feel free to use one of the below methods:

1 Install PHP 5.3 using the Autoinstaller tool by running the following command on your server:
/usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/autoinstaller --select-release-current --install-component php53

2 Install PHP 5.3 from the Parallels Plesk Panel web interface:
Tools & Settings > Panel > Updates > Add Components > select PHP5.3 support and continue.

3 Install Parallels Plesk Panel 10.4 with PHP 5.3 via EZ template. The application template "pp10-php53" is intended to be used during the installation of Plesk Panel.
This means that you should use it in the following way:
# vzctl create CTID --ostemplate centos-5-x86_64 --hostname plesk10.centos5 --ipadd NN.MM.KK.LL
# vzctl set CTID --save --applyconfig slm.2048MB
# vzctl start CTID
# vzpkg install CTID pp10 pp10-php53
