How to uninstall Plesk for Linux?


Warning: After Plesk uninstallation, some system services may stop working due to their close integration with Plesk. Before removing Plesk for Linux, it is recommended to create a server snapshot to have a system restore point.

Note: Due to a Plesk Installer bug with ID PI-498, it is not possible to remove Plesk installed on Debian/Ubuntu-based distributions:

– Debian 10
– Debian 9
– Debian 8
– Ubuntu 20.04
– Ubuntu 18.04
– Ubuntu 16.04

As a workaround, it is recommend to redeploy a server from scratch.

To remove Plesk from CentOS/RHEL-based distributions, follow these steps:

  1. Connect to a Plesk server via SSH.
  2. Run the following command to remove Plesk and all its components:
  3. #plesk installer –remove-everything
