  1. Nginx-only hostings (without Apache component installed on Plesk)

    Hi,
    It seems some Plesk users would like to have the ability to install Plesk without the Apache component (apache-free, nginx-only setup).
    We do not clearly understand cases when it is required. Why using "Nginx-Only Hosting" (https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/customer-guide/72320/#nginx-only-hosting) on a per-website base is not an option (which also provides more flexibility)? Could you please let us know how this feature should work in terms of workflow, in your opinion? We welcome any feedback and would be happy to receive examples to investigate the question in more detail.

  2. Support for HTTP/2 on apache (without using nginx as proxy)

    Hi,
    It seems some Plesk users would like to have support for HTTP/2 on apache directly (without using nginx as a proxy).
    We do not clearly understand cases when it is required. Why using nginx as a proxy in front of the Apache is not an option? Could you please let us know how this feature should work in terms of workflow, in your opinion? We welcome any feedback and would be happy to receive examples to investigate the question in more detail.

  3. Don't hardcode apache LogFormat in templates

    This is simple. All log files are generated by a given format declared in */templates/default/server.php. That's bad if you want to add something to the log format like "%{X-Forwarded-For}i"

    "Nginx Plus" - a buzz word for a paid service primarily aimed at load balancing behind an Nginx driven front-end? This service seems to be mainly relevant for single-domain or -app configurations that distribute transactions over a server cluster, but deliver a site to the user as if it came from a single server. 

    We'd love to develop an understanding what this feature request is truly about and how Plesk could best support it. Where in an Nginx Plus scenario is Plesk installed and what would you like to do with it? It seems that in such a scenario Plesk would be a graphical user interface for the Nginx Plus paid service, but not a webspace control panel. So it would have to be a completely different product. Let us know how you think about it, please.

    We'd also love to hear from you how many Nginx Plus installations you…

  5. Adding Let's Encrypt autorenew for ServerAlias in the subdomains (Example: servername.it alias with cert for subdomain.servicename.it)

    Need to adding the certificates with Let's Encrypt for the domain names added as serveralias in the apache directives on subdomains, with autorenew system.

    We are not sure what is meant. At the moment you can set a certificate for the hostname and you can set a certificate for a subdomain. It is also possible to create a subscription that has the same domain name like the hostname, and that subscription can have subdomains all protected by a certificate. It is also possible to have a wildcard certificate for the subscription domain.

    Could you please describe in detail what you would like to equip with an SSL certificate and how this is linked to encrypted mail connections as stated in the one existing comment?

  6. Add new site or modify existing site without Apache restart /graceful restart

    For example, Odin uses a system where all the website information is stored inside a NoSQL database, and apache just reads this data with a special module:

    This feature has not gotten many votes during the past five years. Technically, a graceful restart of Apache is unnoticeable for the user as not service interruption occurs. Further, Apaches model loads all configuration data into memory upon start or reload. The Odin link provided in the comments does not lead to a more details explanation of the feature request. And finally, in the Nginx/Apache combination with an increasing number of users considering Nginx-only hosting a change in the Apache worker process won't be sufficient.

    Please provide a sound explanation why a graceful restart of web servers is insufficient for adding or modifying web server configuration.
