Managing an Installed Application in Plesk


The integration of Plesk and applications installed via the Application Vault makes it easy to change settings you may otherwise need to log into the application and navigate its admin interface to find.

To manage any application installed via the Application Vault in Plesk:

  1. Log in to Plesk.
  2. Go to the Applications tab in the Control Panel.

    • Remove - If you have decided that the application is not suitable for you, clicking this option will give you a confirmation prompt to make sure you want to uninstall it; selecting Yes will remove the application from the domain.
