  2. Digital Ocean DNS mutual sync

    According to "DigitalOcean DNS" ext description:

    The extension automatically synchronizes the DNS zones between Plesk and DigitalOcean DNS.

    https://www.plesk.com/extensions/digitalocean-dns/

    In reality it only works one way only, from Plesk to DO

    I would like to have Plesk DNS integrated with Digital Ocean DNS bi-directionally.

    1. I wish to have initial provisioning undertaken by Plesk. It's a real-time saver.
    2. I then wish to manage DNS records at Digital Ocean.
    3. Plesk DNS zone then becomes a follower or changes done in DO synced back to Plesk.

    I want the the functionality above because the DO UI is a lot clearer and has a…

  5. Disable "Install Plugins" pop-up after WordPress Toolkit instance installation

    It should be possible to disable the pop-up after installation of a WordPress instance with WordPress Toolkit:
    "Installation Complete Wordpress has been installed. Take a minute to set it up."

  7. Use the same time format for all elements in Backup Manager

    The "Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Schedule" menu is using 24-hour format for setting a time for backup startup, but the backup list in "Tools & Settings > Backup Manager" is using 12-hour format (AM/PM), which can be confusing.

    Please use the same format between these two elements, or add an option to select the preferred format.

  8. SSL Cert for a Domain with 301/302 redirect

    Currently, we can't create a SSL certificate with SSLIt/Let's Encrypt for a domain, when this same domain redirects to another.

    For example, if I redirect domainA.com to domainB.com, and I want to create a certificate for domainA.com, I get the following error :
    Invalid response from https:/domainB.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/8dDWrjssqI1cLpY4CqkJaWNnpjoc5Pv9aBa4Sigiqqs : "404 Not Found
    The requested URL was not found on this server."

    The problem is that the check is made on the target domain, and not the domain in Plesk, because even the .well-known/acme-challenge gets forwarded.

    For now, we are using this workaround (please see attached file)

    But we think that Plesk…

  10. Email forwarding stops forwarding mail back to the address that sent the mail

    We have an email address for "operations", which forwards emails to three separate accounts. When someone on the team replies to an email, it gets sent to "operations" and all of the other addresses listed. "operations" then receives the email and forwards it back again to the address that sent it.

    My idea is to have an option for the forwarding email to NOT forward emails back to the email address it was received from. It recognizes that email address is in its forwarding list and won't forward it back to that specific email.

    So, instead of user 1 ->…

    Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it is popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important. 


    At the moment you can use the following SQL query for psa database for getting what you want:


    SELECT dom.id as domain_id, dom.name as domain, ps.plan_id, t.name as plan_name from domains dom LEFT JOIN Subscriptions s ON (dom.id=s.object_id AND s.object_type='domain') LEFT JOIN PlansSubscriptions ps ON ps.subscription_id=s.id LEFT JOIN Templates t ON t.id=ps.plan_id;

  15. Add the import feature to the "plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli" utility

    There is an export option for the "plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli":

    plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli -instance-id 2 -- export

    Starting export process...
    Writing to file /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/futureinvestments.wordpress.2022-06-03.000.xml
    Success: All done with export.
    But the import feature require native "wp" utility to be installed, and fails via plesk utility with error:
    WordPress Importer needs to be installed. Try 'wp plugin install wordpress-importer --activate'.

    Such option (import) in plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli would improve usability

  17. Custom labels & coloring

    I would suggest some custom labels like:

    • Old or Deprecated
    • New or Fresh (the filter returns all new sites withing a fixed date like 1 month or so)
    • To be removed
    • To be updated
    • To be redesigned

    Also:

    Other label colors would also be nice like orange, red , green yellow , and grey

    also commented here about filtering:

  19. Add hidden mail forwarding option

    There should be an option to forward mail without letting the customer know it is enabled (to the extent permitted by the law).

    Currently, it is possible to hide all mail settings from a service plan or subscription. More granular control to hide mail forwarding only, or an option to enable it separate from the customer's own forwarding settings, would help monitor malicious content.
