How to uninstall Plesk for Linux?
Warning: After Plesk uninstallation, some system services may stop working due to their close integration with Plesk. Before removing Plesk for Linux, it is recommended to create a server snapshot to have a system restore point.
Note: Due to a Plesk Installer bug with ID PI-498, it is not possible to remove Plesk installed on Debian/Ubuntu-based distributions:
- Debian 10
- Debian 9
- Debian 8
- Ubuntu 20.04
- Ubuntu 18.04
