    Thank you for your idea! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular. However, the normal procedure for integration of third-party platforms with Plesk are extensions. These should be developed by the vendors who want to integrate their product with Plesk. Many other storage platforms already have developed extensions for Plesk, so Mega could do the same using the free API toolkit: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/extensions-guide/plesk-extensions-basics/how-to-create-and-install-extensions.76094/

  2. Add an option to Archive sites

    Would be great to be able to archive sites.

    1 - Create a backup of files and database in the default (cloud) backup storage.

    2 - Remove files and database from the hosting.

    3 - Change the site status to Archived but keep on the site list.

    4 - Allow to easily restore from the cloud backup when needed.

  4. Add possibility to restore all databases in Backup manager at once

    It is required to restore all databases for all subscriptions at once. Backup manager allows to restore only databases for particular subscription. If there are more than 30 subscriptions it is very time consuming to do it manually.

  5. Add Incremental backups support for Presence Builder

    Currently, Presence Builder attachments (for example, images that have been added via Slider module to a domain) ends up in every incremental Plesk backup. Such attachments should not be in incremental backups as they are not being changed, modified, etc before the incremental backup starts.
    I suggest adding such a feature for incremental backups support for such Presence Builder files.

  6. Remove Local Backups Automatically after a Restoration

    When you want to Restore a Backup from FTP, first this backup it's downloaded to the Local Plesk Server and then the restoration starts.

    At the end of the restoration process, the Local Backup it's still there, maybe it's better to save this space deleting this Local Backup and maintain only the FTP backup which was downloaded.

  8. S3 Storage with enabled Object Lock

    AWS S3 Storage offers the Object Lock feature, which ensures that a file cannot be deleted within a certain time frame. This is ideal for protecting your Plesk backups from accidental manipulation or attackers.

    However, to use this feature, the PUT request must include the checksum of the uploaded backup file. If this header is omitted, the following error message appears:

    Transport error: Extension transport: ext://s3-backup/server/: Content-MD5 OR x-amz-checksum- HTTP header is required for Put Part requests with Object Lock parameters

    Adding one of the headers described at https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/userguide/checking-object-integrity.html would solve this problem.

  11. Ability to set a Subscription or Domain Backup Default

    I'd love the ability to set a subscription such that a Scheduled Backup configuration is enabled by default? E.g. "backup all files, daily, store 1 day"?

    Often times I realized after the fact that a domain backup was not turned on. The "scheduled backup list" extension is nice, but I'm looking more for a default option.

  14. Sending a WOL magic packet before backup via FTP

    Hello !
    My Plesk scheduled backups are send by FTP to a computer that might be in sleeping mode. I would appreciate the possibility of sending a WOL magic packet before the transfer.

  17. Generate Backup Hash to Verify on Download

    Its a good idea once a backup is generated to expose a hash of it, so if we download it to another media server we have a easy way to check if the backup transfer was successful.

  18. Implement a disk space check for "plesk sbin pmm-ras" utility

    Exporting a backup via "pmm-ras" utility may bring down the server because it ran out of disk space during the procedure:

    plesk sbin pmm-ras --export-dump-as-file --dump-specification=backupinfo<timestamp>.xml --dump-file-specification=/root/backup.tar

    Please improve the "pmm-ras" utility to check for free disk space before starting the operation to avoid these scenarios

  19. Clear failed backup/restore notifications at once in UI

    There are so many notifications in backup manager regarding failed backups and clearing them 'close this message' is so slow. It would be nice to have a way to clear them all at once
