As far as I know Plesk arrives with Firewall and Watchdog out of the box, but now I'm working on a new server with Plesk 11.5.30 and I the Extensions Management page is empty.

How can I install the watchdog and firewall modules by myself?

Additional Plesk modules can be installed from the shell with the Plesk autoinstaller:

What should I do with this file? Won't it reinstall the Plesk? Thanks! –  Rotem Dec 5 '13 at 15:52
Just run it. It won't reinstall your Plesk, it will provide you with an interactive menu where you can add modules to your Plesk installation. –  etagenklo Dec 5 '13 at 16:41
I ran it and chose to install the modules and then it showed that it needs 1200MB for the installation. Is it normal (altough I only chose to add those 2 modules)? Thanks again –  Rotem Dec 5 '13 at 17:55
The cause for this could be that the autoinstaller will also install the needed dependencies for your modules and Plesk microupdates. –  etagenklo Dec 6 '13 at 10:00
May it reset my php / mysql or Plesk cofigurations? –  Rotem Dec 6 '13 at 13:52
