How to manage Plesk branding using CLI or through database?
I. Changing Plesk Branding through CLI:
1. Download the default theme:
# plesk bin branding_theme -p -name default -destination '/theme/defaullttheme.zip
2. Unpack it and modify meta.xml, replace ./images/logos/plesk/logo-web-host.png with a custom image. Note that the theme directory structure should be kept.
3. Zip the theme back, install and activate it:
# zip -r customtheme.zip ./
# plesk bin branding_theme --install -vendor admin -source customtheme.zip
When the theme is installed, it is automatically applied to UI. To apply another theme that was installed previously, use the
# plesk bin branding_theme --set -name customtheme
For information about working with custom themes through CLI, refer to Plesk Administrator Guide .
