Servers

Last modified: June 8, 2022


Overview

The Servers tab contains the Servers Inventory table, which displays each server’s name, server type (Plesk, etc.), status, and two action buttons:

  • Log in to the server’s Plesk interface.

  • Synchronize data from the server to 360.

Add a server

Important:
  • The server must have Plesk version 18.0.37 or later installed.

  • If the server uses a self-signed or invalid certificate, 360 will display a security warning. You must replace the self-signed or invalid certificate with one signed by a Certificate Authority before you can add the server to 360.

Add a server from 360

To add a server to 360, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the plus symbol ( + ). A new window will appear.

  2. Enter the server’s hostname and port (for example, example.com:8443).

  3. Click Proceed. The server’s Plesk login screen will appear.

  4. Click Confirm to connect the server and Deny to cancel.

Add a server from Plesk

To add a server to 360 from the Plesk interface, perform the following steps:

  1. From Plesk’s top navigation bar, click the cloud icon.

  2. Click Connect. The 360 interface will appear.

  3. Either log in with your email address and password or sign up for a new account. A new window will appear.

  4. Click Confirm to connect the server and Deny to cancel.

Add a server from Plesk using the CLI

You can use the CLI to connect a Plesk server to 360. 360 uses API tokens for authentication. For more information on API tokens, read our API Token documentation.

Reading an API token from a file

Note:
  • The following example assumes you are storing your API token in the /path/to/file/with/secret location.
  • The API token in the /path/to/file/with/secret file must have read and write permissions set for the file owner.

To connect your Plesk server to 360 via the CLI by reading an API token from a file, use the following command:

plesk ext platform360 --connect-server -p360-key-file /path/to/file/with/secret

Entering an API token manually

To connect your Plesk server to 360 via the CLI by entering the API token manually, use the following command:

plesk ext platform360 --connect-server -p360-key-file

Using the Plesk REST API

If you wish to use the Plesk REST API to install 360 on a Plesk server, you must set the P360_API_KEY environment variable. To set the P360_API_KEY environment variable, use the following commands:

export P360_API_KEY=<API_TOKEN_STRING>
plesk ext platform360 --connect-server

Use the following command to unset the P360_API_KEY environment variable for security purposes when you are done:

unset P360_API_KEY

Disconnect a server

To disconnect a server from the 360 interface, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the checkbox in the server’s row.

  2. Click Disconnect. A confirmation window will appear.

  3. Click Disconnect.

To disconnect a server from the Plesk interface, perform the following steps:
