  1. 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

  2. Add the possibility to customize the WordPress Toolkit Set to install WP in a custom directory

    Add the possibility to customize the WordPress Toolkit Set to install WP in a custom directory (e.g., “/wp”) instead of installing it in the root folder (httpdocs)

    Reason: The automatic WP installation performed via a WordPress Toolkit Set through a Hosting Plan would work fine if the customer’s current site is not built on WP or another php-based platform, but will fail and mess up their current site if their domain already contains a WP or php-based installation at the root level.

  5. Moodle 4.0 Upgrade in Web Applications

    Guys and Gals, who are using or supporting Moodle as the best free Learning Management System, PLEASE VOTE for this suggestion so Plesk can include the app update to Moodle version 4 or greater in the next versions of Plesk.

    According to Plesk Obsidian's Documentation for Web Applications at https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/administrator-guide/website-management/websites-and-domains/web-applications.68973/ regarding "Updating Apps," by default, Plesk installs the latest available app versions and updates apps immediately once the newer versions are available.

    However, this is not true because Plesk offered for the past year 2021, an outdated version 3.10.4 of the Moodle App. Recently Plesk released a Moodle update to…

  6. 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.

  8. Limit rate of backup

    Full weekly backup for all domains create a huge I/O throughput on our SAN that stress too much our infrastructure until backup ends. It would great if we can tune data through a pipe like "pv" command do.

    I.e.
    This is an example of backup that stress the SAN:
    mysqldump -A -q --single-transaction=TRUE -u $MUSER -p$MPASS | gzip > $_file

    This instead is and example that do not stress the SAN:
    mysqldump -A -q --single-transaction=TRUE -u $MUSER -p$MPASS | gzip | pv -L 512k > $_file

    in the last command we set the maximum rate limit of 512k. Of course…

  10. Make a way to specify which IP should be the default for new subscriptions

    Currently the way an IP is chosen from the ip pool allows IPs from alternate interfaces, dedicated IPs, or shared IPs. It would be nice if we had a way to force it to use shared ips for new subscriptions or, just give us a way to set an IP as the default IP for new subscriptions.

  14. Add option -frequency to plesk bin notification --update -code admin_pum_updates.

    In the UI, at Tools & Settings > Update Settings, it is possible to set a notification to be sent when updates are available or were installed.

    In the UI, it is possible to set the notification to be sent either daily or weekly. However, the corresponding CLI option plesk bin notification --update -code adminpumupdates has no option to set the notification frequency. Please add an option to set it via CLI as well.

  15. cli for outgoing mail limit to get statistics

    It is necessary to have cli utility to get outgoing mail limit statistics for previous days, to see mailboxes that tried to exceed their limitation and when.
    I want to monitor that with an Script and Cronjob and maybe make some auto actions on that.

  19. Could that be possible to separate into different disk mounts for specific customers/subscriptions?

    We're studying for some customer/subscriptions that consume a lot of GB of disk space, to have their own /var/www/vhosts/client as a new disk mount.

    There is currently no way to transfer individual subscription data to a new location. You can only migrate the entire data of all subscriptions to the new location on the new mounted disk with the /usr/local/psa/bin/transvhosts.pl utility.


    But we will consider this requested functionality in upcoming releases if it is popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
