    How to install Python onto Windows VPS

    trying to add Python onto windows VPS server I have, can't find anyway to do this


    How is it done? thanks


    and then I want to insall a Flask app - is that possible?

    I have Plesk Onyx control panel, not sure you can do it with this, if so, can you just use a terminal window, and how to do, ie. how do you open a 'terminal' in this system?

    Python 3.5 is already installed on the Windows VMs.  To run it from command line, you'll need to update your path variable to add C:\Python35.

    To install a different version of python, simply navigate to the Python Downloads page at https://www.python.org/downloads/ using Internet Explorer (or a different browser that you install on your VM), download the version that you're looking for, and run the installation.

    Re: How to install Python onto Windows VPS

    run Python from command line? which one, as the server does not have a command line


    I just want a basic 'hello world' intro Python script to work - doesn't seem to work


    Where to update the path variable on the server?

    Thanks for posting. I'm not sure if you still require help, but Plesk has dropped support for Python to my knowledge so you'll likely want to follow the steps to install and run it on Windows according to Python's documentation. The same will essentially go for Flask.


    In regard to Python, this article should help you get started: https://wiki.python.org/moin/BeginnersGuide


    This one should help you get going with Flask: http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/1.0/installation/#installation
