  1. Add Microsoft SQL Server PHP extensions to Plesk Linux

    They can be disabled by default (and optionally be enabled in PHP Settings, 7.0-7.1 only). The drivers appear to be quite stable - I have successfully installed them in Plesk on Ubuntu 16.04 and CentOS 7.4.

    This is especially interesting since SQL Server 2017 is available for Linux and Docker.

    Once the extensions are installed/enabled, the follow-up request would be to allow me to add remote MS SQL databases in Plesk Linux (not limited to RDS - any remote MS SQL instance).

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  5. 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.…

  8. Make utf8mb4 default when backing up mysql databases

    When i backup database with Plesk (either with Export/Import feature or with Backup Manager), it loses all characters outside Unicode BMP (all characters > 0xFFFF).
    It's because mysqldump default charset is utf8, not utf8mb4.

    This should be changed, for example, if database contains at least one field with utf8mb4 charset - mysqldump should be run with --default-character-set=utf8mb4 option.

    Settings in /etc/mysql/conf.d/mysqldump.cnf are not respected too, it works when i use mysqldump from command-line, but doesn't work when i export or backup db with plesk.

    MySQL dump 10.13 Distrib 5.7.25, for Linux (x86_64)
    MySQL Server version 5.7.25-0ubuntu0.16.04.2
    Plesk version: Plesk Onyx…

  9. Manage notification during database copy

    Currently, when the database is copied the notification is sent to subscription owner.
    It would be good to add functionality to disable such notifications or change the recipient mail address.

  10. Create .7Z dumps of databases

    Within Plesk it is possible to create a dump of a (SQL Server) database. Plesk then seems to use 7Zip to create a .ZIP file. It would be nice if it was possible to choose between the .ZIP or the .7Z file format as .ZIP is more compatible, but 7Z compresses such database dumps up to 10 times better.
    And of course you would need to be able to import 7Zipped dumps also.

  13. Implement solution instead of myLittleAdmin for Plesk for Windows

    Vulnerability CVE-2020-13166 was discovered in myLittleAdmin and since the only option to completely mitigate the issue is to remove myLittleAdmin, it would be good to implement another tool to manage MS SQL databases through the web interface (instead of resorting to Microsoft SQL Management studio)

  16. Mass import database dump

    There are scenarios where multiple databases for multiple domains have to be restored.

    In such cases, it would be great to be able to mass import dumps from database backup files instead of going one by one manually importing them on a domain basis

  17. Add an option to use a custom url to access MyLittleAdmin

    It's not always feasible to add the mssql.<domain.tld> DNS entry for the websites hosted in Plesk.

    Adding an option to configure a custom url/dns name to access the MyLittleAdmin tool with would be preferrable.

    And make sure that "MyLittleAdmin" button under Databases would take the user to the global url if it's set.

  18. Restore PostgreSQL databases that has some objects owned by postgres user from Plesk Backup

    It would be great to have an ability to restore PostgreSQL databases that has some objects owned by postgres user from Plesk Backup. As of now, backup is created without any errors, however it is not possible to restore the database because restoration is done not in behalf of postgres user.

    Or at least have a warning when backup is created that I have to restore the database as a postgres user from the command line and do not rely on backup of the database created via backup manager.

  19. Add option to use subscription username as a database prefix (ex. mydomain_wordpress)

    We can use customer username as a database prefix, however customer username is not descriptive enough comparing to subscription username.

    Please add option to use subscription username as a database prefix.

  20. Configuring the Default Remote Access Policy for MS SQL and PostgreSQL via UI

    Right now, it is possible to manage Access Policy only for MySQL Database Servers only: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/administrator-guide/database-servers/database-hosting-preferences.72875/

    It would be good to manage Remote Access Policy for MS SQL and PostgreSQL via Plesk UI too.
