  1. compile nginx with secure_link, mp4 & flv modules

    Please can you include a version of nginx compiled with the following modules (that are required for pseudostreaming support)

    --with-httpsecurelinkmodule
    --with-http
    mp4module
    --with-http
    flv_module

    Directions for nginx pseudostreaming compile at: https://gist.github.com/mikhailov/3174601 also indicate the following needed/should be included:

    --with-pcre=/usr/src/pcre-8.32 --with-openssl-opt=no-krb5 --with-openssl=/usr/src/openssl-1.0.1g --with-httpsslmodule --with-httpstubstatus_module

    For reference, these are the modules included with the present Plesk 1.6 nginx module:

    --with-ipv6 --with-file-aio --with-httpsslmodule --with-httprealipmodule --with-httpsubmodule --with-httpdavmodule --with-httpgzipstaticmodule --with-httpstubstatusmodule

  2. Nginx Cache purge

    Please, consider to implement some sort of cache purge functionality available from Plesk web interface, because if cache TTL gets extended to match Site needs, it gets complicated, i.e. need to go over Linux Terminal to purge it. A Wordpress integration would be just super fantastic, but I understand, it is not realistic to wish it.
    Thank you!

  4. Add HTTP authentication to Panel itself

    I think you should add HTTP authentication to the Plesk panel itself - that way it is more secure and if there is ever a vulnerability that allows bypassing the Plesk panel login, someone would also have to find a vulnerability in HTTP authentication itself before even getting to the Plesk panel in the first place. To me it makes more sense to make the Plesk panel itself the most secure it can possibly be, not just websites/virtual hosts hosted by the Plesk panel.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. Implement managing of URL rewrites in Plesk on Windows

    Please, implement managing of URL rewrites of domains in Plesk. Currently it is possible to do only via editing web.config or in IIS via URL Rewrite.

  11. Log File Rotation Frequency

    Log files can be set to rotate by size or by period. These settings are processed once a day. However they need to be checked more frequently due to exceptional events such as brute force attacks.

    Assume your settings are rotate by size at 500K. When the maintenance script runs if you a slightly under it will leave it alone, so maybe the following day it might reach 900K. So far so good.

    But what happens when the log file grows to 14GB in 30 minutes, exhausting all free disk space and crashing the server. No harm was done by…

  12. Combine multiple 301 redirects

    I recently updated to Onyx 17.5.3.

    In the hosting settings for each domain i can enable a 301 redirect to HTTPS and i can set a 301 redirect for the preferred domain.

    Great features, but the SEO boys are complaining... Apperently Google does not like multiple redirects.

    Please combine multiple 301 redirects.

  13. Optimise web forwarding config when using nginx + Apache

    When using nginx as a reverse proxy to apache, it seems wasteful for a web forwarding domain to be configured within both http servers.

    For example;
    configure domaina.com to forward to http://domainb.com
    You'll see a nginx virtualhost is created to reverse proxy domaina.com to apache. Apache is then configured to return the Location header to domainb.com.

    Why not do it completely within nginx and save a tiny bit more memory on Apache's side?

  14. External NGINX as AutoCDN

    Hi Plesk Team,

    Why dont allow to customer to replicate their statics files, like jpg gif css js etc... from plesk to a external nginx configured as CDN?

    This will improve web page, prevent overload the plesk servers from loading static files.

    With a module that autosync files from customer to a pool of external nginx managed by plesk

  15. Allow customers/resellers to manage additional Apache and nginx directives

    Currently, management of additional Apache/nginx directives is available for Plesk Administrators only.

    With Apache, it is possible for users to add custom directives via .htaccess file.

    However, when running a Plesk server with nginx only hosting and a large number of customers, it takes a lot if time to configure nginx directives manually for each.

    It is clear that additional Apache/nginx directives fields are hidden from Plesk users for security reasons, but it would be great to have an ability to enable this feature at your own risk.

  17. Put all nginx directives into one server block

    Hello,
    As it is possible to put more than one listen directives, putting only one server block would optimize a lot the Nginx config file.
    Also putting the index directive into the server part would avoid to put it in every / locations.

  18. Create a wget function on file manager

    Its very common that we need to download a large gb archive into our httpdocs follder.
    With the proper download/wget function on filemanager instead of ssh and then wget, changing ownership , will help us save a lot of time.

    Currently I can't find a way to serve Erlang/Elixir applications using a limited Plesk account. Nginx and apache fully support this via CGI.

  20. Compile nginx with ngx_http_fastcgi_module

    Compile nginx with the ngxhttpfastcgi_module so that it's possible to use the nginx fast cgi cache. It can make a basic WordPress site extremely fast as PHP doesn't need to be executed at all but the static page can be served straight away by nginx.

    There are even several WordPress plugins that can empty the cache automatically when new content is published or old content updated.

    I think this would be quite a simple change from Plesk's side as the only required think I can think of would be just to add the module at compilation time to…
