How to assign an Elastic IP address on Plesk ?

By using an Elastic IP address, you can mask the failure of an instance or software by rapidly remapping the address to another instance in your account.

Here, you will see how to assign an elastic IP address in a newly created Plesk server easily.

Each time an instance will restart it will assign new public and private IP addresses dynamically.

If you wish to have a static IP address to associate with your instance, obtain an Elastic IP address and assign it to your instance once you create it.

The elastic IP address is associated with your AWS account, so you can assign it to your instance at any time.

After assigning an elastic IP address to your instance, reboot the instance.

If you are not willing to reboot instance,execute the following commands:

# /etc/init.d/psa stopall
# /etc/init.d/psa start
# /etc/rc.local


Performing Post-install Configuration on an Amazon Instance

Configuring Plesk on Amazon is same as on any kind of server with a few additional provisions, as follows:

  • IP address: the internal IP address detects automatically. If you want to host different customers on your Plesk, set the IP address as shared.
  • Hostname: Use a domain name that you control, or one controll by the Amazon instance’s Public DNS that will be constant in the case of an Elastic IP.
  • On Linux, the command to use is: # /usr/local/psa/bin/server_pref -u -subdomain-dns-zone own
  • On Windows, the command is: C:\> "%plesk_cli%\server_pref.exe" -u -subdomain-dns-zone own
  • Finally, you will enter Administrator's password.
