  1. Better MSSQL handling

    • MS SQL Server 2012 Express via Plesk Installer is configured to use dynamic ports by default and this causes a warning in Tools & Settings > Database Serrvers. Packages installed through your installer should not cause a warning by default :)

    • Improve the behavior of field "Allow remote connections from", under Domains > domain.tld > Databases > User Management > username because the generated firewall rule is OFF by default; maybe this is by design, infact the field description states "Your changes in this list will be pre-moderated by your hosting provider.", but the admin doesn't get any notification about…

  3. Add "Add my IP" near or above "Allow remote connections from"

    Please add a simple button that retrieve my actual public IP and inserts it in the "Allow remote connections from" text area.
    The page is the database user edit (or creation).

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. Would you please upgrade PostageSQL?

    PostageSQL provides some powerful function to process non-relational data (eg: "jsonb") after version 9.4.
    Would you please upgrade that?
    Thanks.

    If you mean PostgreSQL, we support 9.4 version in the current 12.5 version – https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/12.5/software-requirements/#s4-2-1 and upcoming Plesk Onyx – https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/17.0/software-requirements/#s4-2-1

    We will officially support next versions if many people will support your request. But I think that you can try to use 9.5 version right now. It should work, but we have not tested it yet.

  8. LDAP Server

    I would like to have the option for setting up an ldap server. Of course with an ui-manager like ldapadmin. Just the way like MySQL works (MySQL with PHPmyAdmin).

    Thank You

  9. MySQL-Config default to innodb_file_per_table with datadir

    Take some influence to MySQL-Konfiguration and always default to "innodbfileper_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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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. :)

  14. Rename database

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

  15. Please add ability to change the password of the psa_root admin for Plesk Onyx so we can connect to the psa database using port 8306

    Plesk Onyx is setting a random password for the psa admin database and the connection to port 8306 using the default admin password is not possible.There is no way of retrieving or reseting the psa database admin password which is causing big trouble if we want to connect to the psa database or want to change the default database using plesk repair
