    • nginx: remove "location / {...}" directive from default configuration

      Plesk 12 comes with a default
      location / {
      ...
      }
      directive in the nginx config file. This is really bad because very many prominent PHP applications and frameworks (e.g. Symonfy 2) ship with setup instructions containing a
      location / { ... }
      directive themself, leading to "duplicate location" errors when adding those directives in "Additional nginx directives"

        Thank you for your input!

        We plan to revise the implementation of this functionality in the upcoming release, so that web applications can use nginx directives correctly without causing such errors in the nginx configuration.

        Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

      • Add PHP Composer to chrooted

        Please add PHP Composer to chrooted Environments.
        Many Customers Need PHP Composer to install various scripts, cms Systems and libaries.

        A current big Problem is the new typo-neos System - you must use Composer to install at sources correctly

        A other Problem are PHP API's and Libaries like Payment Companies like PAYMILL etc..

          Thank you for your input. We are already considering adding PHP Composer in the future releases. We cannot promise you that it will be chrooted, though, since that’s quite expensive to develop. Please let us know how important for you to have PHP Composer chrooted in the comments.

        • Fix File and Folder Permissions for docroot from Plesk UI

          When switching from Apache to FastCGI the Service Provider needs to change the permissions for the customer from apache:apache to <user>:psacln

          This can be fixed by having a button in Plesk which does:

          find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -not -user $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chown $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER:psacln
          find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type d -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755
          find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type f -not -name "*.pl" -not -name "*.cgi" -not -name "*.sh" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0644

          • provide more nginx options

            Have the ability to provide more Nginx builds/packages. For example, offer a 'nginx-full'-package with more modules.

            For example, I need the Nginx headers more module. Since this need to be built-in at compile time, it isn't possible to add this later on. So that would mean replace the Plesk version of Nginx with the distro-default. (Heck, why does Plesk need it's own Nginx-build, anyway?)

            No, passing headers from Apache is not an option, especially when I'm using the Nginx - PHP-FPM setup.

              • Support enabling / disabling mod_wsgi

                As we all know, mod_python is not supported by Plesk 12.5 / CentOS 7 anymore (even if compiled manually).

                Odin suggests to install mod_wsgi instead. This however cannot be activated for domains separately or configured by service plans.

                Thus I would like to see this feature again - and probably its a real quick change in Plesk source code that would allow a nice way to take control over python permissions

                • Support from ALPN (Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation)

                  Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation (ALPN) Support where good.

                  To ensure the best possible compatibility of support would be very good here.
                  Of course, this is not a priority but would be good.
                  So could the future https, http, be http / 2 Easy granted.

                        id like to see these tools implemented into plesk. To run server wide or domain wide, and via cron if required.

                        Alot of large organisations are using these tools. (facebook etc etc)

                        I like to see image optimization part of plesk admin panel. It will help servers run faster and optimize web delivery.

                          am not understand, when i want to move a Domain, the system will delete all the content. The choice to leave the content, I think is essential. This has to be a must!!!

                              • Separate PHP-FPM process per subscription for security and performance reasons

                                Sharing a PHP-FPM process with separate pools per websites is a security issue and a problem for performance when some clients may deploy bad scripts to the server.

                                A huge reason for why sharing the same PHP-FPM process between subscriptions is that the OPCACHE (Xcache, APC and Opcache) share the same memory and it is accessible between clients. Disabling access to stats and controlling api of them is available, but it's not a great solution for some critical cases. Still, this is not suitable when isolation between apps is critical.

                                Another reason is with php scripts that clients deploy. In…

                                • Implement AppArmor support for Apache

                                  AppArmor provides much stronger security for web applications than what is currently available, especially since PHP open_basedir is both slow and known to be insecure.

                                  With AppArmor you don't need such settings, and it is possible to allow PHP functions such as exec() and system() - but only allow access to certain binaries. This provides a more flexible system for our customers, and we have more fine-grained control over what they can and cannot access.

                                  http://wiki.apparmor.net/index.php/Mod_apparmor_example

                                  Additional AppArmor profiles for services that come with Plesk might be useful too, but securing Apache is the main thing.

                                    WordPress management is great but my security plugin lets me change the login URL from the WordPress default. Either Plesk needs to get the correct URL from the database or let the user edit the login URL

                                    • Recycle IIS application pool on specific time

                                      In IIS 8 I can put a specific time to recycle the application pool. See screenshot.
                                      But in plesk Onxy I can't. This is very misleading. Because now I have to make a scheduled task in windows to make this happen. I prefer to do this in plesk, because I want to manage all my application pools settings in Plesk Onxy not in IIS 8.

                                      From my opinion Plesk did already a good job to put some recycle settings in the Plesk interface. Can the specific time setting for recycling the appliction pool be added?

                                      • default chroot PHP cli should use Plesk panel PHP version & settings

                                        Currently when a user uses SSH to execute PHP cli commands, it does not reflect the settings chosen in Plesk panel (it seems to be the default OS vendor PHP). While other PHP versions are available in "/opt/plesk/php/..." the current solution is neither ideal nor transparent to the user (most of them don't even know this path).

                                        I suggest that the default chrooted PHP command
                                        -) should use the same version as chosen as in plesk panel
                                        -) and should use ini settings (memory_limit, max_execution_time) as chosen in plesk panel

                                        Ideally this should even be possible on domain level, but…

                                        • Add an option to lock/freeze a website

                                          Hi,

                                          some Hosts (e.g. Strato) use a functionality to completely lock a site. This is very useful for customers that dont want to do any changes to their website anymore but use an old version of a cms and forget/dont want to upgrade.

                                          Of course there should be a warning about the consequences like non working file caching etc.
