    Hello Giorgos,

    I think the same upgrade procedures apply! Have you already tried this?

    Alright,
    Please give it a shot using the auto installer ...

    Unfortunately I cannot test it because it's a production server.
    And even if I test it in a test Container, I cannot make certain results. It may break Plesk at a later time.

    In the thread I mentioned, it says that a second (with newer version) standard template of Plesk has to be applied to the Container, in order to update it.
    Are you saying that it can be done like in normal Plesk servers, through Updates & Upgrades?

    I haven't upgraded Plesk on a windows VPS, but I have hundreds of times on a Linux VPS, and the procedures are always exactly the same as those for a dedicated server ...

    Thank you for your effort abdi, but I know about linux. I have updated/upgraded many times Plesk in linux Containers without any problem.
    Linux are based on EZ templates, while Windows on Standard templates.

    So, does anyone know how can I update/upgrade Plesk in windows containers?

    Again, this article is not for VPS.
    If you read it carefully, it says:
    Note: If Plesk is installed in a container using Virtuozzo containers templates, consider performing an upgrade using templates. See full list of instructions in the article #117518.

    And article #11758 is about linux VPS once again!

    So, does anyone know how can I update/upgrade Plesk in windows containers?

    Hello Giorgos,

    Plesk in windows VPS cannot be upgraded using newer versions of the template - it doesn't provide such functionality. Attempting to do it might even break Plesk so I do not recommend to try it.
    It must be upgraded manually by means of Plesk itself, it's the only way.

    If you need to do it massively you can probably use some CLI command and execute it via "vzctl enter" or "vzctl exec".
    Note, if you'll need to make sure OBAS or any other managing software has a newer version of Plesk recorded it will be necessary to alter container's config file, and replace template version of Plesk with a newer one. It's the only way since OBAS is working with template versions, not Plesk version inside of a CT, and updating CT you do not alter the fact older template was initially installed.

    Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any further questions
