  1. More out of the Box configuration for Microcaching (Nginx)

    As far as now in Plesk 17.8.9 Beta there are just limited options to configurate Nginx Mircocache.

    There is no option to Cache every time.
    Even if you de-select all of the "Bypass cache when" Rules your file looks like that.

    /var/www/vhosts/system/domain.tld/conf/nginx.conf

    [...]
    proxynocache $nocache;
    proxy
    cachebypass $nocache;
    [...]

    But I want Microcache to Cache even if nocache is set.
    Also these values are not configurable:

    For Microcache

    proxycachevalid
    proxycachebackgroundupdate
    proxy
    cacheignoreheaders
    proxycachebuffersize
    proxy
    cachebuffers
    proxy
    cachebusybufferssize
    proxy
    cachetempfile…

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, this request contains several different suggestions, and it’s not technically possible to properly handle them inside one request. Please consider creating separate feature requests for each of the items below:

    - PHP – compiled with maximum support for all extensions
    You can use PHP from original OS vendor repo. Please create a new request and let us know why do you not use OS vendor repo and what exactly extension do you need.

    - NGINX – compiled with maximum support for all extensions
    Each new module affects nginx. Could you explain what exactly nginx module do you want? Please create a new request and let us know what module do you need.

    - Apache – compiled with maximum support for all extensions
    Plesk doesn’t ship Apache, it only downloads it from original OS vendor repo.

  3. Mod_pagespeed 'cache' clear button in speed settings panel

    When tuning system for modpagespeed, http/2, PHP7 w/opcache, https, ran into issue with Apache, where turning modpagespeed off, then back on, or off then restarting doesn't clear cache. On a development site, I had to do a htaccess to fully disable in order to apply CSS changes which were 'stuck' -- a 'clear cache' option from panel would be super cool, vs command line ! :-)

  4. should allow Domain-Forewarding for every Domain in an Abonnement

    Currently it is not possible to make domain-forwarding for every Domain in an Abonnement. You have to select website-Hosting for the first domain to enable Forwarding for other Domains.

  5. Setting alternate directory path location of the vhost per Domain or service packet

    At the moment it is not possible to change or choose the vhost path for a domain. Every Domain is installed in the standard vhost path, at example /var/www/vhosts
    If someone has a Server with attached fast and slow storage or big and small storage, it should be possible for the administrator to choose between them when installing a new Domain. It could be possible to give a customer service packages with faster storage for mission critical domains or giving him a lot of space for another domain located on disk drives mounted to another location.

    At the moment you can change default vhosts location in Plesk using the command-line utility transvhosts.pl
    Just check available options with

    plesk bin transvhosts.pl —help

    Changing vhosts directory location for part of domains is impossible now.

    Anyway thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.

    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

  8. Add nginx-only hostings

    I'll like to create a hosting that only use Nginx as webserver. Also I'll like to do this with Node.js, but I think it will not be approved.

    Current scope for Plesk Onyx is to enable an ability to serve all http(s) requests by Nginx only.

    Note: apache will still be installed. Switching of apache to optional component is subject for the next release.

    Update:

    The ability to turn off Apache and have content served by nginx only on a per-website basis is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.0.14 preview. We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-preview-and-feedback.337172

    How to try this feature:

    Go to any website, click Apache & nginx Settings and deselect the “Proxy mode” checkbox under nginx settings. The feature is also available in Service Plans.

    We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!
