  2. Edit MySQL server settings (my.cnf file) trough Plesk

    MySQL server settings (my.cnf) can only be updated via CLI, it would be faster if these changes could be made in Plesk Panel or PHPMyAdmin without the need to edit settings on server.

  5. Add MariaDB Connector/ODBC

    > Drivers

    With MySQL and MariaDB going their own way more and more, it is important to add MariaDB Connector/ODBC as an programming interface to Plesk as well. Side by side with the already available MySQL Connector/ODBC. This is easily done.

    One cannot guarantee MySQL Connector/ODBC to be compatible with MariaDB in the near future.

    Download MariaDB Connector/ODBC from here:
    https://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb-connector-odbc-3113-release-notes/

  6. Install MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0 to support modern TLS versions and ciphers

    (This is related to https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/44353242-add-mariadb-connector-odbc)

    > Drivers

    MySQL Connector/ODBC version 8 needs to be available to Plesk users, because 5.3 is outdated, not to mention 3.51.

    In MySQL Connector/ODBC, there is support for new, modern TLS versions and ciphers.

    https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.0/en/encrypted-connection-protocols-ciphers.html
    > As of MySQL 8.0.26, the TLSv1 and TLSv1.1 connection
    > protocols are deprecated and support for them is subject to
    > removal in a future version of MySQL. See Deprecated
    > TLS Protocols.

    And please remove MySQL Connector/ODBC 3.51. I cannot think of any reason Plesk should rely on, or support, this version. The following runs perfectly in…

  8. Add the ability to encrypt a Database via Plesk interface

    Add the ability to encrypt databases as Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) via Plesk interface, which is supported in MariaDB 10.1 and later.

    At-rest encryption means the data files and logs are encrypted on the disk and makes it almost impossible for someone to access or steal a hard disk and get access to the original data (provided that the key is secured and not stored locally).

  9. Ability to track number of simultaneous connections to the MySQL

    Sometimes Plesk is not accessible with error:
    DB query failed: "SET sql_mode = ''" Error: SQLSTATE[08004] [1040] Too many connections

    It is possible to inrease the number of connections but it will also be good to have some monitoring of the current number of simultaneous connections to the MySQL, for example in Advanced Monitoring extension.

    It will help to prevent Plesk downtime and set the reasonabl limit for max_connections

  10. Ability to select database schema when creating database users in Plesk for MSSQL

    It is required to import databases created externaly with dbo database schema.

    When such database imported in Plesk it is assigned to schema of the database user created in Plesk. When user created in Plesk, new schema is created for database user. For example, user test1 created in Plesk will have database schema "test1"

    This results to the non-functional Database due to wrong schema (reuqired dbo, while database imported with schema test1).

    The suggestion is to add functionality to select schema when creating database users in Plesk

  13. MySQL change the charset

    Allow to chose another charset when creating a database or do not set one.

    Plesk does use:
    "CREATE DATABASE databasename /*!40101 default charset=utf8 */"
    And with this does overwrite when the MySQL config was changed to use utf8mb4 for example.

    Or allow to choose a charset on creation or create DBs with:
    "CREATE DATABASE databasename"

  14. Ability to clone databases with definers

    On the attempt to clone database with DEFINER Plesk failed if there is no the same user on destination database.

    Currently, it is required either manually remove definer from database dump or add super priveleges: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360005033014-Unable-to-import-MySQL-dump-using-Import-Dump-feature-in-Plesk-ERROR-1227-42000-at-line-1421-Access-denied-you-need-at-least-one-of-the-SUPER-privilege-s-for-this-operation

    Since Mysql version 5.7.8 it is possible to use the --skip-definer option with mysqldump:
    https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/mysqlpump.html

    The suggestion is to add ability to clone database skipping definers as option in Plesk GUI

  15. Better Database Server Assignment / Visibility

    Currently you only have the option to do nothing and "SHOW ALL" database servers or restrict to a single database server per subscription by using the permissions tab. This means each user that falls under this criteria need a custom service plan.

    We would like to display more than a single database server for clients that choose to pay extra for an additional database server that only they can use. Some projects grow and they need an additional database server - or in some cases they need to migrate data between the old database server (sometimes local to plesk server)…

  19. Include pgadmin for Postgres management in Plesk

    phpPgAdmin support was dropped starting from Plesk Onyx 17.8
    This means that Plesk does not have any management tool for Postgres databases shipped with it.

    I suggest to include pgadmin in Plesk installation since the latest ve
    rsion of this software (2018-09-06 - pgAdmin 4 v3.3 Released) has just been released, with adequate security. More info about it you can find here:

  20. Mass import database dump

    There are scenarios where multiple databases for multiple domains have to be restored.

    In such cases, it would be great to be able to mass import dumps from database backup files instead of going one by one manually importing them on a domain basis
