  1. website importing with different ip for ftp and www

    The current website import function only allows entry of the source domain name.
    I need to specify the ftp server details separately as for some hosts the ftp server is on a different ip to the website and the current import function fails as it fails to access either the website or ftp server depending on which info was entered as the source domain.

  2. Transfer DNSSEC configuration for a domain during migration

    It would be great if transferring of generated keys and DB records of DNSSEC configuration for a domain during Migration will be implemented. Thus there would be no need to recreated them for each migrated domain.

  3. Allow multi-thread options in Plesk Migrator to speed up huge migrations

    The Plesk Migrator tool is very limited when migrating a big amount of subscriptions, databases and mails.

    Checking the CPU usage when performing a migration, Plesk Migrator utilities are not reaching 20% of the CPU because this tool is not supporting multi-threading.

    Therefore, due to this limitation, a huge migration can take a few days or even more than a week to be completed.

    If Plesk Migrator would use the full capabilities of the hardware available in our servers, the migration can be faster and match our migration deadlines.

    It would be great that a few options in panel.ini or…

  5. forwarding HTTP(S) requests from the source server to the target

    In case of migration and the customer use 3rd party Name servers, it would be useful to be able to redirect all requests that come to old ip to the new server ip.
    This will helpp to avoid downtime

  6. Better migration of "PHP from OS vendor" parameters

    Please consider the following use case:
    - testdomain.tld on a CentOS target server is using "PHP from OS vendor" version 5.3;
    - The destination server is Ubuntu 14, with newer version of PHP from OS vendor, so you install PHP 5.3 with Plesk Installer;
    - The migrated testdomain.tld will have different PHP parameters that may cause disruption of the website.

    An example: PHP short open tag is enabled by default on PHP from CentOS repository, but is disabled on PHP 5.3 handler installed via Plesk Installer. If a PHP code uses short open tags, the script will stop working. Plesk…

    The problem may be in that destination server will not be able to use specified version of PHP for the migrated domain because of absence in official OS vendor’s repository. To prevent this kind of problems we see improvement of pre-migration checker which will notify you about possible post-migration issues. After that, the server administrator must solve the problem himself. The automatic resolving of these incompatibilities looks very dangerous.

  7. Set LVE to "unlimited" for users created temporarily on Migration to speed up Migration on CloudLinux

    The CloudLinux employs several techniques to limit performance, among others "LVE" limits. These are limits on resource usage such as CPU speed, RAM, I/O speed, number of processes, etc.. It is an established fact that the Plesk Migrator is capable of modifying CloudLinux components to allow the Migrator to do it's job, like disabling CageFS for the source user and target server. So, it stands to reason that the Plesk Migrator could also modify these LVE limits to improve performance of the data-transfers to the target server. The I/O limit of 1 MB/s is an LVE default limit for users…

  8. Mail Importing improvement

    Within the "Mail Importing" section it would be helpful to show percentages of work (and other stats) and a remove button to hide old unnecessary import requests.
    Best regards.

  14. When migrating to a pro license recreate customers with their domains

    When migrating a Reseller's customer the domains is re assigned to the administrator when source has a host license and target a pro license.

    In this scenario it would be nice to detach the customers from their resellers and create them on the target server with their domains.

  15. Identify live domains by verifying they're reachable

    I have two servers that basically just mirror my domains. When I need to update the operating system on one of them, I migrate to the other and repoint the IP addresses. Fairly simple, DIY manual failover basically. (BTW, it would be great if this was more automated with regular incremental backups to the failover server.)

    When I'm on the "inactive" failover server (when the domains are pointed at the other server's IP address), there is no indication that the domains are not reachable by the current server's IP address, which leads to confusion when switching between browser tabs to…

  16. Run pre-migration checks only for the domains to be migrated

    Migrating more than one subscription causes a problem. The pre-migration check scans all users and all files on the backup disk, which takes quite a long time with a large number of backups (7TB+). Instead of scanning only the files of the users to be migrated (as when migrating a single subscription).

    When I unmount the backup disk, Plesk doesn't scan it and the migration takes only a few minutes.

  17. Cross-platform migration from Plesk Windows to Linux

    Cross-platform migration
    Migration from Plesk Windows to Plesk Linux, at least migration of business logic (customers,emails,etc) so the user would not have to create it manually when transferring content using Site Import.
    In cases with a hundred mailboxes, manual creation, and password management can become a daunting task.

  19. Keep the collation MySQL settings during the migration

    Migration of the databases from the old MySQL servers should keep the original collation of the tables. If the databases on the source server have the different collation setting these databases should have the same collation settings on the target server after the migration.

  20. Expand the ssh port field to 5 digits

    ssh can be configured to listen on different port numbers. The default is port 22. It can also answer on port numbers up to 65535, but the field on the migrator only takes 4 digits. I have ssh listening on a 5 digit port. This is just bad form.
