  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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).

  6. 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.

    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).

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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. :)

  15. Existing remote database for a domain

    Please add functionality to assign an already existing database from a remote database server to a domain.

    For example, set a MySQL database on one server but connect it to my website on the Plesk.

  16. External MySQL permissions per user/reseller

    After adding an external database server via tools & settings -> db servers , set the option of who is permitted to use it.
    This way we can offer private sql srv's to e.g resellers or anyone who would like to buy this addon feature.

  17. Provide DNS query logs for each domain along with other customer log files.

    Hi, my end users would like the DNS query logs for their domains. It would be great if Plesk could provide this via the existing panel!

    Thanks!

  18. Integration with external MSSQL AlwaysOn Availability Groups

    Support of integration with external MSSQL AlwaysOn Availability Groups will allow to build fault-tolerant system with best performance and 99,99 % availability of databases.
    Additionally it will release system resources locally on server with Plesk Panel.
    Per my tests such scheme almost work with Plesk Onyx 17.5.3 and MSSQL 2017, however necessary to change or add logic for:
    1) automatic adding of database to 'always on' after creation

    2) removing of databases(need to disable 'always on' for DB first and only after initiate remove command)
    3) database backup creation/restoring

    Regards.

  20. 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…
