    When I install Plesk, I think it will be good if I can install into a very clean machine, so which of the following sequence is better? (my machine is running FreeBSD)

    1. Install FreeBSD
    2. Install Plesk
    3. Install Apache, mysql.... etc.


    1. Install FreeBSD
    2. Install Apache, mysql.... etc.
    3. Install Plesk

    Are there any prerequistue (in terms of applications, such as apache) before installing Plesk?

    The Plesk installation manual says it all.
    First install the required packages ... THEN install Plesk.

    Plesk on FreeBSD is like a big "bundle" of apps. It already includes apache, bind, qmail, mailman, etc. So you dont need to manually install any of those.

    There are some other basic packages and changes required to run Plesk properly on FreeBSD, and not all of them are in the docs. heh! But if you're asking if you can start it up after installing the Plesk package on a clean system, the basic answer is yes.
