    • add an option to schedule a server reboot for some point in the future.

      Under Tools & Settings->Restart Server, add an option to schedule a reboot for some point in the future rather than rebooting the server immediately.

      • 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…

        • Find and Install Apache Modules

          In the apache modules screen have a space where a user can find and install packages via a GUI interface instead of using command line to setup modules.

            • Prevent users from installing SSL certificates

              As reseller (or administrator) we should be able to prevent customers installing a selfsigned or 3rd party bought SSL certificate themselves.

              It's not possible to disable the 'SSL support' check box within the
              'Service Plans' menu section 'Hosting Parameters' because as Administrator we install customer SSL certificates by API. Disabling 'SSL support' will also disable installing SSL certificates by API.

                  • Plesk Repair Tool (Linux) : Exclusion of paths, permissions and directories

                    We tried to use the "plesk bin repair" tool (file system check) with -n to run once a week and report if errors found to nagios. Unfortunately the tool does also report things like the .git directory as suspicious. So we would get alerts for everybody using GIT in his Web-space.

                    We would like to have to the possibility to exclude some specific paths, directories or permissions to get a clean output from the repair tool and pass it to nagios.

                    • A choice of popular applications that are displayed in the Plesk client panel

                      Now the list of recommended applications for customers displays only 3 applications: WordPress, Joomla, Drupal on start page in Plesk (customer level).
                      It would be nice if the hosting provider himself may indicate or change the list of recommended applications for its customers.

                      Yes, now the above applications are the most popular. However, in different regions and among different providers and web studios may be other applications more popular.

                      For example there are e-commerce applications that meet the requirements of tax laws (such as Russia), and are popular in this country, but these applications are not the most popular in…

                        • Track E-mail Sent from System more effectively

                          Introduce a system to show outgoing mail from the system, outgoing mail queue for domains and e-mail headers sent by domains to make tracking spam and abuse of the system simpler.

                          Having had a week of tracking down scripts attempting to send etc. Its proved hard to identify which domains within a subscription are offending and from which hosting package. Might be an idea possibly to track back to a script for a domain using the php mail() or by using sendmail features.

                          • email forwarding anti loop mechanism

                            Today it seems Plesk is not able to manage a simple mail forwarder configuration like the following:

                            pippo@domain.com (local address) forwarding to pluto@domain.com (local address)
                            pluto@domain.com (local address) forwarding to pippo@domain.com (local address)

                            This kind of configuration generates a mail-forwarding-loop, but it should be possible to avoid it and terminate the forwarding without issues.

                            This kind of configuration is simple and immediately working on cPanel based systems (tested on several systems). in my specific case, I migrated from cPanel to Plesk a company mail server and now I'm experiencing big complaints because I'm not able to preserve this simple configuration…

                                  Could you clarify – why server-wide backup doesn’t work for the case?
                                  If you have a server-wide backup, which was created before a user deletion, you are able to restore any data related to the user, including whole their structure (the user account, all their subscriptions/domains, and their content),

                                  All PLESK control panel pages (:8443) should include a robots "noindex" metatag in the <head>-section, so Google would not index them at random.

                                    Due to compliance logging in the server is not acceptable. We need an option to redirect all plesk logs to syslog so that we can redirect the logs to remote server using syslog.

                                    • In-place dist-upgrade Windows Server 2008 (R2) to Windows Server 2012 (R2)

                                      It would be nice if Plesk supports an in-place dist-upgrade from Windows Server 2008 (R2) to Windows Server 2012 (R2).

                                        I see that this upgrade is supported by Microsoft – https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn303416(v=ws.11).aspx
                                        But I suppose that in Plesk context its is very complex procedure which can lead to unpredictable consequences in Plesk operation. Support of this dist-upgrade will take a lot of resources for developing and testing. Therefore I think that migration from one server to other or through backup/restore procedure is much more tested and safe procedure.

                                        But 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.

                                      • Improve firewall module to allow editing outside of Plesk

                                        The Plesk firewall module overwrites any custom rules saved outside of the firewall itself (for IP tables rules added via command line). It would make it a lot easier if the firewall module worked with the native tool and read the existing firewall rules instead of overwriting any rules not created by the module itself.

                                        • Domain Registrar

                                          How about managing domain registrations if the provider is also a registrar
