    I installed Plesk 8.0.0 on FreeBSD 6.0, just to get a look before I upgrade my 7.5.4 server.

    One installation gotcha of note is that the installer tries to use gtar, but it couldn't find it until I installed the version from the ports collection.

    After that, everything went smoothly.

    I "prepared" the server with a few other binaries and perl modules, so I don't know if there are any other dependencies. The stuff I installed was based on my experiences installing 7.5.4, plus some other utilities I like to have.

    So, there you go...

    Does is finally use the packages from the portstree? Or does the Plesk 8.0 for FreeBSD package come with precompiled non self upgradeable old versions of Apache and PHP?

    For FBSD you're expected to use the shipped versions, which they update periodically. For all other platforms (possibly except OSX) you can use any versions.
