    Please write exact scenarios of why do you want to hide this functionality in Plesk.

    Do you want to disable File Manager on a server or you would like to disable File Manager for particular customers only? And why?

    Your descriptions will help us to properly estimate if this idea is worth to be implemented or not.

  2. Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) - features from Linux to Windows

    Please add support for Linux tools (and programming languages, such as Ruby) to Windows through Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and support for PLESK. Of course in the future. This function, in my opinion, is of great importance and gives Plesk a great advantage.

    Windows Server 2016 (1709) supports Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), Semi-Annual Channel.

    Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) will be implemented in all versions of Windows Server 2019.

    I suppose that it would be better to move your hosting to Plesk for Linux if you want to use Linux technologies. Some years ago Apache was supported by Plesk for Windows but it was dropped due to high business cost and insufficient reliability and relevance. Therefore I’m not sure that it is good idea to spread resources to support Linux technologies on Windows servers.

    But anyway, thank you for your input! Maybe 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.

  3. Plesk billing solution for customer and reseller, e.g. like WHMCS

    I know that there is WHMCS billing solution but it is not intuitive and need lot of task to make it work.
    Please could you reflect including a Ready To Go billing solution, just by installing an extension, it could be a GREAT release !

    We're almost there. In Plesk Obsidian 18.0.35, published on April 20th, 2021, we had already added the option to upload folders or multi-select-upload files. It may not yet be possible to download a complete directory in one step, but this can also be done in two steps by first creating an archive of it and then downloading the archive. 


    So this feature request is now about downloading a directory or a set of selected files in one step. Please keep voting for it if you believe that this is an important feature.

  6. Let users choose the preferred log storage path (log file location)

    Plesk should store all logs in the standard linux location of /var/log instead of storing logs in /var/www/vhost/system/<domain>/logs. In our case, we run very optimized Plesk environment w/ /var/www/vhost setup on it's own Enterprise RAID SSD. But we can't optimize Plesk hosting when the access logs, error logs, etc are also being written under the same partition (ie /var/www/vhost/...).

  8. Easy change the main website on a subscription

    Currently the main domain must be renamed to change the main domain. This is cumbersome, especially if e-mail addresses are still assigned to this domain, because they will be also renamed. It would be more convenient if another already existing domain could be set as the main domain, e. g. by clicking on a button "Set as main domain".

  11. www added to subdomains

    Hello.
    When I create a subdomain (subdomain.domain.com) Plesk creates the ServerAlias adding www to the name (www.subdomain.domain.com).
    I dont want this ServerAlias but I cannot delete it.
    I think it would be a good idea to add an option for subdomain: add/not add a www to subdomain server.
    Thanks

  12. When removing a domain from Plesk, if the domain is associated with other domains then a warning should appear to show what associated domai

    When removing a domain from Plesk, if the domain is associated with other domains then a warning should appear to show what associated domains would also be removed. Without this warning, it may remove the entire Plesk subscription along with all associated domains, which is not easily recoverable.

  13. Ability to enable "Serve static files directly by nginx" by default.

    It would be nice if, in general, I could enable "Serve static files directly by nginx" by default in Service Plans > Web Server.

    This would also have the added side effect of solving the problem where the default Plesk web site page is blank when PageSpeed is enabled.

  14. Git Workflow: DEVELOPMENT > PRODUCTION

    Many developers use git these days when working on a website or webapp. It would be great if Plesk supports a simple deployment workflow:

    Example when using two branches:
    - development
    - master

    Branch "development" will be automatically deployed by Plesk to /var/www/vhosts/example.com/dev.example.com => connected to https://dev.example.com
    Branch "master" will be automatically deployed by Plesk to /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs => connected to https://www.example.com

    What about database connectivity?
    When using different databases for development and master you should not include your "database-connection.ini" into git but manually store it in the designated directory and edit via Plesk File Manager for example.

    What about access…

  15. Change default notification setting for task 'secur-check'

    I suggest to change the default notification setting for cron task '/opt/psa/libexec/modules/watchdog/cp/secur-check' because now it is set to "Every time" but is useless to get the following output at every run:

    [2017-10-30 01:00:01] DEBUG [utilexec] [59f66b81b1574] Starting: rsecurcheck security2017-10-30 schedule, stdin:

  16. Allow multiple SSH-accounts in a subscription

    Currently only the main user-account (=system-user) can get access via SSH. Additional users and ftp-users only have access via FTP.

    Please allow setting up additional users using SSH as well.

  19. Change default notification settings for built-in scheduled task on Windows

    The following built-in scheduled tasks on Plesk for Windows are set byd default to Notify = Every time. Every clean install of Plesk will send daily two annoying e-mail messages to the administrator. It will be more useful to change that default to Notify = Errors only.

    Daily web statistics analyzers run task:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\webstatisticsexecutor.exe

    Daily script task:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\php.exe -q "C:\Program Files (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\plib\DailyMaintainance\script.php"

  20. Bind limit to usage of RAM, CPU etc in Plesk for Windows server

    It is good if we can restrict usage of resources like RAM, CPU on per user basis in Windows server Plesk.
