  1. Add support for more DBs

    When I first saw the option of create DBs, I thought it was something like I'm suggesting. MongoDB, MariaDB, CouchDB, etc, etc. This will be super cool. :)

  2. 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.

  3. Rename database

    Doing this by hand is very time consuming. An option for rename database would be great feature.

  4. 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.

  5. Allow Plesk to use a clustered MySQL Server (Galera)

    According to a ticket I just opened (80693) Plesk currently doesn't support a clustered MySQL server, e.g. an active/active Galera cluster.
    To avoid data-loss or corruption in a server crash, I'd like to run MySQL in a Galera cluster to automatically sync the data again once Plesk's MySQL started after a crash.

  6. Support MySQL 8

    I would like to see support for the upcoming MySQL 8.
    Currently there is no support inside plesk and using a possible workaround with docker isn't possible out of the box.

    MySQL Community Server 8.0.4 is already a Release Candidate.

  7. Include pgadmin for Postgres management in Plesk

    phpPgAdmin support was dropped starting from Plesk Onyx 17.8
    This means that Plesk does not have any management tool for Postgres databases shipped with it.

    I suggest to include pgadmin in Plesk installation since the latest ve
    rsion of this software (2018-09-06 - pgAdmin 4 v3.3 Released) has just been released, with adequate security. More info about it you can find here:

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  14. PostgreSQL integration and tuning

    Please do better integration of PostgreSQL into Plesk like CPU and memory usage in Health Monitoring and Dump button in Database page. Please also add PostgreSQL tuning into Plesk, especially for modern hardware with 32 or 64 GB memory and 4 to 8 cores and fast SSD or NVMe drives. Thanks!

  15. 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.

  16. Ability to create ODBC DNS for ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server in Plesk

    Add the ability to create ODBC DNS for ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server in Plesk.
    Disabling TLS 1.0 breaks compatibility with earlier versions.

  17. Add support for MySQL Governor for CloudLinux

    Currently Plesk does not support MySQL Governor feature https://docs.cloudlinux.com/index.html?mysql_governor.html
    and mapping file /etc/container/dbuser-map has to be updated manually

    Plesk already has integration with CageFS and LVM and detects it once those features installed on the server. It would be great if support for MySQL Governor be implemented in future.

  18. Forced instance prefix for database

    I'd like to have the ability to force a database-prefix of up to five characters for the plesk instance (alternative for a specific ext. databaseServer) for both databases and databaseUsers.

    I use a MariaDB-cluster for my customers and there are multiple reasons I like to see such a feature:
    - For security reasons: I don't like that the internal plesk-admin user has access to all databases - even if they do not belong to the instance domain's / customers. If the server would be hacked and somehow the mysql-admin-password extracted all my customers would be affected. With a prefix (e.g.…

  19. Show actual database type in Plesk > Tools&Settings > Database servers

    Currently even if MariaDB is installed on the server, in Plesk > Tools&Settings > Database servers it is written as MySQL It would be nice to show actual database type .

  20. install sql server reporting services with SQL server on shared hosting. Would be a valuable & useful feature for your product & consumers.

    Availability of reporting services on SQL server would be very useful on shared web hosting. My new ISP says Plesk doesn't support reporting services. I think it would be great if you did - not every site is a blog or simple brochure style. Any small scale business site still requires reporting, and SSRS is a natural fit for ASP.Net hosting.
