How to install Applications in Plesk

This tutorial will show you how to find and install Applications in Plesk

Instead of manually creating files, writing the code, and developing a design for your website, you can install web applications that will accomplish most of these tasks for you. You can use the applications to add features to your site, such as a blog, photo gallery, online store, or you can base your site entirely on a single application, such as WordPress or Joomla.

1) Plesk comes with a built-in application installer that’s prefilled with a number of useful applications, and your hosting provider may have added even more. Click the Applications tab.
