  1. Login to Plesk, see Log in to my server for more information.
  2. Select the Tools & Settings menu on the left.
  3. Under the Panel section select Updates and Upgrades.
    • If prompted with an SSL warning continue past the warning.
    • If prompted with a login for the Plesk installer use the username and password you created when you setup your webspace.
  4. Select the Add/Remove Components link.
  5. Expand the Plesk hosting features.
  6. Check the box or select install for Apache Tomcat Java server .
  7. Click the continue button.

To Confirm Tomcat Installation on Your Plesk Server

  1. Login to Plesk, see Log in to my server for more information.
  2. Select the Tools & Settings menu on the left.
  3. Under the Server Management section select Services Management.
  4. Confirm the Java/Tomcat service has a green circle next to it, this means it is installed and running.

Although Plesk allows you to install Tomcat if you would like to use Tomcat/Java tools within Plesk you would need to purchase the Plesk Power Pack. See How do I upgrade options on my server? for more information.
