Meet plesk command-line hub (Linux)

Plesk 11.5 introduces s an easier way for Linux server admin to manage and troubleshoot Plesk. That is “plesk command-line hub“. The hub consolidates and shortcuts most of typical operations over Plesk. Lets briefly overview how it can help:

1. call any Plesk tool

plesk bin domain --create domain.com

Everything is autocompleted in this example and also no need to type boring ‘/usr/local/psa/bin/‘ prefix

2. open common Plesk configs

plesk conf panel.ini

If pressed ‘tab‘ after ‘conf‘, other config names will be suggested.

3. watch Plesk logs for possible problems

plesk log panel.log

If pressed ‘tab‘ after ‘log‘, other log names will be suggested. With ‘–all‘ key provided all configs will be shown together – easy to grep for something specific.
TBD – example from service

4. Get brief overview of current host
