  1. Server Health: Show Apache CPU Usage per domain

    It is difficult to identify the offending website, and this would help tracking it down

    • Incremental backup

      http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=208520

      Many files are rarely changing on a usual site. So backing up only changed files might make backup process much faster.

      • Limit resources per user

        As the title says, plesk panel should be able to limit these resources, for example, per system user.

        Resources:
        RAM, CPU (%/cores), Maximum Processes per user

        -->including a automatic banning solution

        (cpanel has this functionality)

        • Multiple backup rules or more options

          At this moment, you can set only 1 rule to make backups (daily, weekly, or monthly). My idea is to make multiple backup rules (ex. which daily backups should be deleted) or simply make more backup options.

          Ex:
          I want to make daily backup and delete every older than 2 days, except one day of the week and one day of the month.

          ex interface:
          Make [daily/weekly/monthly] backup and keep only:
          [n] daily backups (enabled only for daily backups)
          [n] weekly backups (enabled for daily and weekly backups)
          [n] monthly backups (enabled for daily, weekly and monthly backups)

          So, if…

          • Keep server up2date with "apt-get" or "yum" (update PHP, Apache, MySQL, etc)

            Hi everybody,

            Following my post on the plesk forum, I propose to the team having a features which allow the update a server (like an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade) but directly from plesk to update the server.

            Indeeed, I find really strange that there is not way to maintain a server up-to-date and we are oblige to directly to the server to launch this operation.

            Regards,

              we are considering this function. Maybe not whole server, but at least main services like PHP/Apache/MySQL – which are not a part of Plesk technically, but yet important to be updated.

              PS
              Please keep voting. It is very low in overall rating.

              • Customer email notification when mailbox quota exceeded

                It would be a very useful feature to have an email automatically injected to a customers mailbox when their quota is close to the limit and another when the mailbox quota has been exceeded with advice (customisable) on how to resolve the problem.

                Sometimes clients are unaware/forget their quota and if accessing via outlook/smartphone etc they are not aware of the limit being reached. This can result in several days without emails or emails being rejected with a "mailbox full" autoresponder. Ironically this means anyone sending emails to the client are aware the mailbox is full but the client is…

                • Backup into Cloud

                  http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=262215

                  There are quite many free and commercial cloud storages at the day where user could keep their backup. But many storages wouldn't offer FTP access. It may be helpful if Plesk could transparently upload backups into a customer's Dropbox, Amazon or Azure account.

                    • ActiveSync support on Roundcube and Horde (Push)

                      ActiveSync is a necessary tool for most businesses today as it allows them to have everything in one place and stream it automatically to every device they use. Users with mobile phones and tablets can easily sync their contacts, calendars, notes and emails via activesync and users with outlook and other mail clients can sync contacts, mail and perhaps notes.

                      • multiple php versions. Switchable via the panel.

                        • make SSL Certificates for mail services manageable from Plesk

                          To change SSL certs for mail services one has to manually change at least three files: (depending on system e.g.)
                          /etc/postfix/postfix_default.pem
                          /usr/share/imapd.pem
                          /usr/share/pop3d.pem

                          This is very confusion and not very usable, esp. as there are already a number of SSL ways to set certificates in Plesk (per domain, per ID, for the panel, as std. for all domains, ...)

                          This could be streamlined and a simple tickbox, like 'Set this certificate for mail services' would make the life of administrators much easier!

                              Now you have two opportunities to set the spamfilter - server-wide or individual. It would be very handy if the admin or the customer could set the spamfilter for the whole subscription or/and for the whole domain.

                                It would be useful to be able to configure auto replies so that they end automatically on a specific date.

                                For instance, I am going on holiday for a week and would like the auto reply to automatically turn off when I return.

                                  While people rely on fast connections, i recommend to compile with SPDY (http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_spdy_module.html).

                                  I know, it's experimental, but if there's a problem anywhere, people can easily turn it off.

                                  • Change admin username

                                    It should be possible for the admin user to change his user login name. The name "admin" is not very secure, because it's easiert to hack via brute force. The hackers know, the name is "admin". If the user would be able to change his login name, it would increase the security of Plesk Panel.
