  2. 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.

    This feature request only received 12 votes over the course of 6 years. We have reviewed the request and would like to ask you why you believe that vsftpd brings you advantages over the existing solutions (like ProFTPD). The existing FTP server has proven to be great for millions of websites through all the years. Please give us some good arguments why vsftpd would be even better.

    Thank you for your idea. At this time, the Node.js drop-in replacement "bun" is in a development stage. There is still lots of work to do and bun does not yet have any significant market share. There are also no signs that a broader community is using this instead of Node.js. 

    Maybe this will change in the future. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.

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

  5. 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.

  6. Monitor log file growth within the day, rotate logs if necessary not only nightly

    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…

  10. Custom HTTP methods on Windows Servers

    Only when Plesk creates a website will it create this entry at the website level in IIS in the handler mappings, pointing to this file "php-cgi.exe"

    There is no PHP handler in the IIS root that allows me to configure the allowed verbs and that can be propagated to websites.

    When Plesk creates a website, it has a set of settings that it applies to the website, which includes the creation of the handler to interpret .php files, the path of the executable that it installed itself and the allowed verbs.

    I know that after creating a website and only…

  11. 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.

  12. Add MIME-Type for extension "mjs" (JavaScript modules)

    Currently files with extension "mjs" generate an error in console and do not work.

    HTML-code:

    <script type="module" src="file.mjs">

    result in:

    "Failed to load module script: Expected a JavaScript module script but the server responded with a MIME type of "". Strict MIME type checking is enforced for module scripts per HTML spec."

  15. editable global mime types for apache (default for all virtual hosts)

    By default, apache will return wrong mime types for some file extensions (for examples font files).

    We can add additional mime types per website, however we can't edit them globally for all websites via plesk.

    We can achieve this by editing /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/mime-types.conf manually from cli, however plesk could provide a more comfortable way to do it.

    Please add option to edit global mime types that will be used by all virtual hosts by default and overridden if website has its own instructions.

  17. HTTP verbs management by Plesk on Windows

    There is a common need due to Rest API-development to able to switch on / off http verbs for IIS server. Verbs are according to my knowledge configured in the ApplicationHost.config file which cannot be configured via web.config file. So, please consider implementing this in Plesk. Also make this available in Classic Asp settings which also locates in the ApplicationHost.config file. For Classic Asp and also for ASP.net, by default only GET and POST verbs are available.
