To download Parallels Plesk Automation installer, use the following command:
[root@server /]# wget http://download1.parallels.net/ppa/ppa_installer

To download Parallels Plesk Automation upgrade script, use the command:
[root@server /]# wget http://download1.parallels.net/ppa/ppa_update

If your server has only one IP recognized by 'hostname -i' command, you can run installation as follows:
[root@server /]# ./ppa_installer --password <admin user password> --admin_email <admin user email>
If your server has more than one IP address or if 'hostname-i' does not resolve into the desired IP, use the full command format:
[root@server /]# ./ppa_installer --password <admin user password> --admin_email <admin user email> --ip <management node IP>
It is also advised to use different interfaces for external access and internal inter-nodes communications. For such configuration you should indicate both IP addresses in the installation command:
[root@server /]# ./ppa_installer --password <admin user password> --admin_email <admin user email> --ip <management node IP> --communication_ip <IP for service nodes communications>
After installation you can login into the Administration panel using the URL https://<IP>:8443, user “admin” and the password you selected in the installation command.
