  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Need features of hsphere virtual user to migrate to plesk

    We are trying to migrate off Hsphere this year since it will be at EOL onto Plesk but need the virtual user feature functions in hsphere to be incorportated into Plesk first because we are using them. Attached is an illustration of the level of control that is not there for an FTP user/virtual user's folder.

    1) We need to be able create users and assign them access to .
    multiple folders
    2) We need to be able to create folders and assign users to them

  4. 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?

  5. web statistics with additional info (HTTP/HTTPS, IPv4/IPv6)

    I would like to compare HTTP to HTTPS traffic and IPv4 to IPv6 traffic. The data should be in the logs, but it is currently not displayed.

  6. 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.

  8. nginx svgz support

    .svgz files are compressed vector graphics.
    When not inlining SVG it is often suggested to compress svg files in advance. This is the common svgz format.

    But nginx does not deliver .svgz files correctly, because svgz files are not correctly encoded by nginx.
    Plesk should add this by default:
    location ~ .svgz$ {

    add_header Content-Encoding gzip;
    

    }

    This is also a known generic nginx issue. For example: https://github.com/h5bp/server-configs-nginx/issues/86

  9. 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.

  10. 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 (memorylimit, maxexecution_time) as chosen in plesk panel

    Ideally this should even be possible on domain…

  11. Allow configuration of the php-fpm slow log

    For debugging PHP-FPM can log slow scripts. It would be great if you could manage this feature via Plesk.

  12. Ability to set PHP version per directory inside the same webspace

    A customer would like to be able to assign different PHP versions for different directories inside one the the same webspace.
    For example,
    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs - php5.3.3
    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/test - php5.2.17
    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/test2 - php5.6.12

  13. 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.

  14. 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..

  15. 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

  16. 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?

  17. 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…

  18. 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

  19. jpegoptim, optipng, gifsicle or similar

    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.

  20. The possibility to delete a Domain, without deleting the Website (Content).

    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!!!
