  1. Changing the PHP default version of every newly created domain, regardless of the service plan feature.

    An option that allows new domains to be created with a default PHP version other than the current Plesk default PHP version would allow, for example, Web Admin licenses to automatically newly created WordPress instances with custom installations such as specific plugins/themes to be created with a PHP version compatible with their specific architecture.

  2. add option to have dedicated php instance on a domain alias

    I have noticed that on main domains and subdomains this is a option but when you add a domain alias this option does not seem to be there.

    I would think this would be something useful to have especially if you are like us and have multiple domain alias pointing to one main site for files but wanting separate domains under one account like for us it is multiple ecommerce websites.

  4. Manage PHP-FPM status path and additional PHP-FPM settings globally

    For our monitoring environment we want to use the pm.status_path, ping.path and ping.response settings for all PHP-FPM pools globally.

    At the moment the only way to set these settings is by adding the following in Domain -> PHP Settings -> Additional configuration directives:
    [php-fpm-pool-settings]
    pm.status_path = /php-fpm-status
    ping.path = /php-fpm-ping
    ping.response = pong

    Unfortunately there is no way to set this globally, not by changing the plan nor by utilizing event handlers (because we're unable to set this through /usr/local/psa/bin/php_settings -u).

    I've also been unable to find the template for the PHP-FPM pool settings, so also unable to change this…

  6. PHP 8 - HEIC ImageMagick 7 support

    As HEIC is the default format for photos on iOs devices, il would be great to be able to upload heic images on website and to work with using php.

    It is not possible, and acceptable, to ask to final user to convert there images to jpg before uploading. Most of them will not understand about what we are talking.

    As I understand heic is already supported by ImageMagick, il is just an option to trigger when compiling.

  9. to make a button to reset your Composer-settings for your site.

    If you have a webpage set up with composer, and delete the project, the composer-settings remain stuck on the old composer file. Please make a button to reset this.

  10. GraphicsMagick support

    ImageMagick look nearly dead(?) https://pecl.php.net/package/imagick no progress in months (years) and no official lib for PHP 8.

    GraphicsMagick is fully under development https://pecl.php.net/package/gmagick

    So I wish support for gmagick in Obsidian ;)

  11. PHP Extensions Installer

    I would love to see PHP Extensions Installer like other panels cPanel and DirectAdmin have it. Can we see a feature where we install needed PHP Extensions from Plesk rather than SSH into server and install?

  12. Add SSH2 extension to PHP default extensions to improve security

    Hi,

    Please consider add SSH2 extension to PHP default available extensions.

    To be able to use FTP over SSH (SFTP) the SSH2 extension must be installed on PHP.

    IN SHORT: SFTP (SSH2 EXTENSION) = SECURITY

    SFTP means secure file transfer via Secure Shell (or SSH), hence the name SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). The two devices (server and client) communicate via a single channel, that of SSH, in which the remote file management commands are sent and where the file transfer takes place. By default, the only port required for SFTP is 22, the same as SSH.

    SFTP implements the…

  13. Hide only PHP-FPM settings for domain.

    It would be nice to have ability to prevent client from modifying the number of maxchildren . The permission "Hosting performance settings management " revokes this but it also prevents the user from changing PHP options like execution time and maxvars. But we would like to allow our clients to manage "Performance and security settings" parameters in Plesk.

  15. Awstate update to supports Geoip registration

    As AWstat is still core part of Plesk, will it be good to have a solution out-of-the-box that is able to geolocalize the hits isn't it ?

  18. Restart interval for PHP-FPM services

    Restart interval should be implemented for PHP-FPM services like it is done for Apache.
    At the moment, each time when domain's PHP Settings are updated, PHP-FPM service is reloaded which causes the error 503 on websites.

    If every person decided to make a small change in php settings daily it would mean 500 x 503 errors for all users daily. We host like 30 active sites and customize a few of them as developers so a few php changes (less than 10) is a daily occurence. Customers never fail to mention this to us because they may be saving products…

  20. Make PHP-PM available for usage with Nginx and Apache

    Currently we have the choice of fastCGI with Apache or fastCGI or FPM with nginx when setting up a PHP site.

    These are great but a newer alternative is now out, PHP-PM, which could give a lot of sites a very nice performance boost.

    It would be great if we could get this added as an extra option on Plesk when setting up PHP sites.
