Plesk 17 Migration Update (May 2019)

By Chris Allen | May 22, 2019 | 0 Comments

Hey all, we hope you’re well! Here is another quick update on something that’s happened behind the scenes at here at HA Hosting this past week. In this past week we were hard at work and have migrated websites to a shiny new server running Plesk 17.


The benefits following this migration are: 

  • Ensure that you can run the latest applications including a newer version of Maria DB (version 10.3) 
  • It allows for the latest versions of PHP to be available for websites 
  • The performance of the server is noticeably much better due to these improvements

As a quick summary, the old server was running Plesk 12 so wouldn’t have been supported for too much longer. This mixed with the fact that a newer server would run faster meant an upgrade was in need! Hence the migration to Plesk 17. 

The upgrades mentioned above are great and means that we should be good for awhile now! And having the server’s performance be improved is always a good thing! When is a faster server ever bad? 😉

If there are any developments to do with either this or anything we decide to change/improve then we’ll be sure to let you know as and when they happen! We’re always looking to find ways to improve what we do here, so expect updates every so often! It’s important to us to keep you in the loop with what’s going on here!

If you have any questions about what we’ve been doing, then don’t be afraid to ask! We’re more than happy to have a quick chinwag! Or if you’re just looking to keep up to date on what’s going on you can find out either on our website or on our social media pages.


We’ll see you for next update some time soon!
