  • 0


Automation is a crucial aspect of modern web hosting, and the Plesk Panel offers a robust set of tools for automating many tasks, including ASP.NET application deployments. In this guide, we'll walk you through automating the deployment process of an ASP.NET application using Plesk Panel on Windows Server 2019.


  • A Windows Server 2019 instance with Plesk Panel installed.
  • ASP.NET application ready for deployment.
  • Administrative access to Plesk Panel.


Step 1: Log in to Plesk Panel

Log in to your Plesk Panel account.

Step 2: Navigate to the Target Website

Navigate to the 'Websites & Domains' tab and click on the name of the website where you'd like to deploy the ASP.NET application.

Step 3: Set Up Git Repository (Optional)

  1. Go to the 'Git' option.
  2. Add your Git repository where the ASP.NET application code is stored.
  3. Sync the repository.

Note: This step is optional but highly recommended for maintaining version control.

Step 4: Set Up Deployment Task

  1. Go to the 'Scheduled Tasks' section.
  2. Create a new task that triggers a script or command line for deployment.

Step 5: Deployment Script

Write a script that performs the necessary steps to deploy your application. This could be a PowerShell script, for example, that moves files, updates configurations, or handles database migrations.

Example PowerShell Script

# Navigate to project directory
cd C:\inetpub\wwwroot\YourApp

# Pull the latest version from Git
git pull origin master

# Restore packages
dotnet restore

# Build and publish
dotnet publish --configuration Release

Step 6: Test Automation

Execute the task manually to ensure that everything works as expected.

Step 7: Schedule the Task

Set the task to run at specific intervals or triggers, ensuring your site stays up-to-date automatically.


Automation is key to efficient operations, and with this guide, you've set up an automated deployment process for ASP.NET applications via Plesk Panel on a Windows Server 2019 environment. Test thoroughly to ensure that the automation works seamlessly.
