  1. Changing soa serial format by using the XML RPC API

    It is possible to set the soa serial format either over the Plesk Panel or the command line, f.e.

    /usr/local/psa/bin/dns --update-soa <domain_name|domain_alias_name> -soa-serial-format timestamp|yyyymmddnn

    However, the XML RPC API should provide a possibility to change the soa serial format, too. Currenlty, the XML RPC API only allows to manipulate the values for the SOA's ttl, refresh, retry, expire and minimum.

  2. change domain alias

    when i have a domain alias (lets say alias.com) for domain test.com and i want to change the alias to test2.com, if have to delete the alias and recreate it.
    if i have many custom dns records in the alias, i have to create them again manually.
    it should be possible to just change the aliases "main-domain"

  4. More control over IPs used in IIS for site hosting.

    Sites in Plesk can have only one IP address assigned; this IP must the the same for FTP, HTTP, etc. A change to allow more flexibility should be easy to implement (e.g., allow 'all unassigned'), so sites running on Plesk can be used in load balanced scenario's, e.g. when running Plesk on a cloud server.

  5. add search and replace in code editor

    The ctrl-F feature provides a search function, but there is no search and replace that I can find. I'd like the file editor to have the same editing functions as notepad++.

  6. 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.

    Since Plesk 18.0.46 Nginx is shipped with GeoIP module. Please see https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/administrator-guide/website-management/websites-and-domains/extended-website-management/plesk-for-linux-setting-up-ip-geolocation-for-a-website.80011/


    While this feature request is asking for an Apache module, we are wondering whether this is still needed as the same goals can be achieved with Nginx GeoIP in a much better way with less server resources. 

    Please comment in this feature request why you still need the Apache GeoIP module.

  8. fetch_url.ps1 should support cookies

    %PLESK_DIR%\Additional\Scheduler\fetch_url.ps1 script should support cookies.

    Currently, if a URL, you fetch with it, sets a cookie (and tries to read it back ? - not sure about this part tho), it fails due to the $webRequest object not having a CookieContainer.

    Just add two lines into the script before calling GetResponse():
    $cookieContainer = New-Object -TypeName 'System.Net.CookieContainer'
    $webRequest.CookieContainer = $cookieContainer

  9. Disk usage information for subdomains and additional domains via interface.

    • Be able to review the real disk usage of the subdomain instead only the total.

    As for now, Plesk only shows the total of the disk usage on the main domain as eg:

    Example.com total usage is 2GB
    1.example.com Total usage is 10GB
    2.example.com total usage is 10GB

    Plesk interface only shows the total value under the main domain, in this example case: 22GB, instead show the usage separately.

  11. Ability to customize Password Reminder email

    Currently while it is possible to customize notifications body, there is no way to customize email sent when you click on Forgot password button on logging into Plesk. It would be nice to have ability to customize it as well: as I would like to add into this email my branding, images etc.

  14. Add debug symbols for nginx builds

    We have a customer using plesk and nginx. The customer wants to use our APM tool also for monitoring nginx, but in order to get deep monitoring we need the debug symbols for nginx.

    The customer is currently using package sw-nginx-1.9.4-rhel6.15091112.x86_64.rpm. The contained nginx binary does not contain debug symbols and we also could not find a corresponding “dbg” package in the repository. Are the debug symbols publicly available somewhere else? If not, can you please provide them?

    It would be perfect if you can add the debug symbols for every nginx version in future to your repository as APM…

  16. Using LDAP with Mail server

    The LDAP Auth extension only allows enabling LDAP authentication to Plesk. Can you allow end-users to use outlook/thunderbird/webmail with the password stored in the Active Directory?

    In this case, the mail server has to be configured via Plesk to use the LDAP authentication.
