What is the path and version of Perl, MySQL, etc? Print

  • 2

Paths are listed below. Versions will change over time, so we have not included them here.


  • Stock OS distro is usually 5.4 or 5.5 located at /usr/bin/php
  • Newer versions managed by Plesk located at /opt/plesk/php/{x.y}/bin/php -- for example you can replace x.y with 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, or 7.3 on most servers. If one of those does not work, the Plesk update utility can install them for you if you have your own VPS, or open a ticket to have us install whichever version you require 7.x or newer.

MySQL / MariaDB


As of Feb 2019 our shared servers are all running MariaDB 10.2, which is MySQL 5.7 compatible.


Perl: /usr/bin/perl (typically 5.10.x or newer)
Python: /usr/bin/python (typically 2.6.x or newer)

htpasswd: /usr/bin/htpasswd
vhost path: /var/www/vhosts/yourdomain.com
Your web accessible folder: /var/www/vhosts/yourdomain.com/httpdocs

Please open a support request if you need the version information for anything else.
