Installing MSSQL and myLittleAdmin on Parallels Plesk Panel 10 Windows Servers

Windows® dedicated servers with Parallels Plesk Panel® 10 can use its built-in update tool to install the following MSSQL versions:

  • Windows 2003 Servers — MSSQL 2005
  • Windows 2008 Servers — MSSQL 2008

You can also install MyLittleAdmin, a Web-based tool for managing MSSQL databases. However, after installing MSSQL and MyLittleAdmin, you must complete a few steps before using MyLittleAdmin to manage your databases.

To Install MSSQL and myLittleAdmin on Windows Servers with Plesk 10

  1. Go to https://[[ipaddress]]:8443, where [[ipaddress]] is you server's IP address.
  2. Log in to Plesk using the user name admin and your server password.

  4. In the Panel section, click Updates.
  5. Enter your server password. The Login Name is already populated with NetworkAdmin.

  9. Click Continue.

Do not close the window while the installation completes. It can take up to 20 minutes.

You can now create MSSQL databases and database users within Parallels Plesk Panel. However, if you try to launch myLittleAdmin to manage any of those databases, you will get a 404 error until you finish configuring myLittleAdmin.

      cd C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin
    • 64-bit
      cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin
  4. Type the following, and then press Enter:
