  1. MariaDB Xpand. Horizontal Scaling of Both Writes & Reads.

    MariaDB Xpand Database. Horizontal Scaling of Both Writes & Reads.

    Horizontal Scaling Secret #1: Automatic Data Distribution

    As tables and indexes are created, they are automatically “sliced” and distributed across all the nodes in the cluster. This distribution utilizes 64 bit consistent hashing based on the data keys, so each slice’s location is predictable, as well as what data it contains, from a simple metadata map. So any transaction running on any node can access any data on the cluster from at most a single hop away, and the “lookup” to find that data is a local in-memory table in…

  4. Implement checking of the psa database for inconsistencies after adjusting the domain's settings

    In particular circumstances when a domain's hosting type is switched to No hosting and back to Website Hosting, the following issue occurs: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360013744460
    It would be helpful to implement a tool for checking the psa database for inconsistencies after the domain's hosting type is switched

  5. 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.

  8. Allow creation of database users on different database servers configured on Plesk

    In case when more than one database server are available on the Plesk server, e.g two or more MSSQL servers, it is possible to enable the "Database server selection" option on the subscriptions's service plan which allows creation of databases and database users on any database server available by default

    It would be great, however, if the ability to create databases and database users on all database servers available were enabled separately, like below:

    • Option on service plan to allow creation of databases on any database server available, in case this option disabled, the subscription would be able to create…

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    MySQL Connector/ODBC version 8 needs to be available to Plesk users, because 5.3 is outdated, not to mention 3.51.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

  10. 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:

  12. Allow the configuration of Database Servers over SSL

    Allow the user to configure Database Servers to connect over SSL, specifying SSL certificate, CA certificate and SSL key. Currently, this has to be done manually via phpMyAdmin config file at /usr/local/psa/phpMyAdmin/config.inc.php.

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. Associate the same database user to multiples databases

    I would like to suggest the possibility to associate the same database user to specific databases of the same subscription.

    As an example:

    Subscription example.com:

    Databases: Example1, example2, example3

    Database users: user1 and user 2

    At the moment user can only be associated via the Plesk panel to an specific database or "any"

    But in case I need/want to associate the user1 to example1 and example2 it's not possible.

  16. 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).

  20. Avoidance of special characters in database names when database is created

    Disallowing using special characters (period, minus, backtick) in database names when database is created. This would reduce database errors caused by database names in wrong format.
