      • MYSQL Performance Tuning and Monitoring

        t would be a good idea to have an SQL section where users can run optimization scripts like MYSQLTUNER etc and enter suggestioned changes in a GUI that directly change the mysql.conf directly and correctly.

        An ability to monitor performance and tweak would be ideal, making the task of SQL performance monitoring and tweaking far easier.

        Also optimize commands and other tasks could be run for this panel.

        as well as optimize and the ability to add it to cron for weekly or monthly.

        • Multiple MySQL Versions configureable over Panel

          I'd be happy if you could integrate multiple MySQL Versions into Plesk. Each Customer should be able to choose his MySQL. Also choosing more than only one version should be implemented.

            Thank you for your input. We will consider the possibility of implementing this feature in upcoming releases.

            Since Plesk Onyx panel admin will be able to install different MySQL versions as a Docker containers, then the DB servers can be connected as remote DB to Plesk.

            • Hide/Show Database Servers for clients

              Administrator should have the possibility to make Database Servers hidden from Clients.

              My scenario is:

              1 or more servers that are intended for Web only (Nginx+Apache+PHP/Ruby/Python)
              2 or more servers for Databases (MySQL / could be PostgreSQL also)

              In the Database Servers, the administrators should be able to select visible servers for clients.

              Why? Ideal is to hide the localhost server when only external are to be used. Some DB servers may get to full and you want the clients to select only from lower used ones. You have demands from different clients to support older versions of MySQL for…

              • website copy should also copy related database(s)

                Right now "Website copying" feature does not copy database(s) that related to the website that will be copied.

                It would be great if Plesk will suggest to copy the website's database(s) if there are any.

                It is understood that in general such feature can not guarantee that copied website will work with the copied database. However it will simplify web developer's work.

                  • Secure myLittleAdmin connections

                    I just installed myLittleAdmin into several of our Plesk servers only to find out that each customer on the server would need to create a new DNS record for mssql.domain.com for it to work. I also found that if the client's site is not secured with an SSL cert, myLittleAdmin won't be secured either. I suggest that myLittleAdmin be updated so that it uses the base URL of the server, which is SSL secured. Or at the very least, identify how to secure access to myLittleAdmin via the server's SSL cert even if the customer's site isn't secured.

                        • Option to shrink MSSQL Database log

                          Many a times during database updates / ddl script executions the log file of MSSQL database becomes too large. There should be an option to shrink the log files. Currently this feature is disabled for both SQL Server Management Studio and Query.

                          • MySQL-Config default to innodb_file_per_table with datadir

                            Take some influence to MySQL-Konfiguration and always default to "innodb_file_per_table= true" and "datadir=/var/lib/mysql/data".

                            Makes optimization of tables and space-reclaim with larger databases possible. Might be a problem of bootstapping but is worth the effort.

                                • Allow setting AUTOCLOSE for MS SQL databases on Plesk Panel for Windows

                                  The AUTOCLOSE enabled is the root of the evil 9001 Fatal Error on MSSQL (it's so evil that MS dropped this param in SQL Server 2014).
                                  All production sites in the world disables them, but it is default ON. Users may want to control this param from the Plesk GUI.

                                  • Allow users to create new databases in phpmyadmin.

                                    People are not forced to create databases in the database page, they can create them in phpmyadmin like on WAMP Server.

                                    • To make it possible to manage mysql.log rotation settings

                                      A customer of ours would like to manage mysql.log rotation settings from Plesk GUI. At the moment rotation is OFF as it is by default in mysql package, but with heavy db usage the log file is getting huge. But in order to turn on rotation one need to have some technical skill to edit /etc/logrotate.d/mysqld and uncomment the needed sections there. Not all customers have this still and thus this request.

                                      • Be able to choose which SQL servers customers can choose between in the subscriptions settings.

                                        Now, you can only choose which one should be the default.

                                        Ex: SQL Server PrestaShop or Magento users with high Capacity in which the customer pays for performance.

                                        • activate/deactivate global access to MySQL-Database per account or per database

                                          make it possible to activate or deactivate the global access to single databases by selection in administration panel (not selectablable by enduser/customer).

                                          Currently I have to set this parameter in mysql.conf

                                          #bind-address=127.0.0.1

                                          If I remember this was possible with Confixx??
