  1. Locale management features

    It would be very convenient if you'll to add a new locale management(merging/splitting) feature, since plesk2smb.php is absent since Plesk 18.0.31:

    https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/localization-guide/localizing-plesk/splitting-the-%E2%80%98newstyle%E2%80%99-locale-files.66475/

    Although if that's possible, to adapt plesk2smb.php to the next versions of Plesk that'd be good.

    It is planned in scope of integration with CrowdIn localization system. Big files like common/application/admin/resources/languages/ca-ES/messages_ca-ES.php will be split into small chunks similar to en-US locale.

  2. SSL it! support latest server-side-tl version 5

    I would be nice that the latetst version of mozilla will be supported in the SSL it! extension. It would be even better that we can select for previous configuration (version 4) or recommended configuration (version 5)

    Hi. It’s about the feature “TLS versions and ciphers by Mozilla.” We have this in our plans.

    To support version 5, we have to change the code heavily – the format of the config was changed; some services don’t support the modern TLS; also, as you mentioned, it would be quite useful to provide the ability to select the config version. That’s why there is no ETA.

  3. Enable mail accounts password encryption(or have possibility to enable it via Plesk) for MailEnable

    Currently all mailbox passwords(MailEnable) are stored in AUTH.TAB in plain text that is not secure.
    MailEnable has an option to enable password encryption in AUTH.TAB

  6. Exclude plugins from auto-update

    The auto-update is great, but it is even better to exclude plugins from the auto-update. Some plugins breaks the site or plugins are customized.

  7. Be able to enable all security options from WordPress Toolkit on all instances via CLI

    Be able to enable all security options recommended by the WordPress Toolkit on all instances via CLI so that it would save customers' time as they would not need to login to the Panel and select all of them manually on all instances.

  8. Show actual database type in Plesk > Tools&Settings > Database servers

    Currently even if MariaDB is installed on the server, in Plesk > Tools&Settings > Database servers it is written as MySQL It would be nice to show actual database type .

  9. WordPress plugin restoration point

    Would be great to have WordPress plugins to be able to have restoration points on a plugin upgrade basis and not only for WordPress major upgrades.

    This way, WordPress plugins can be managed individually with more control over them.

    We’d like to introduce this feature, but we’ll have to solve certain technical difficulties first (for example, properly handle cases where database structure is updated by a plugin and you want to roll the changes back). We’re positive that we can overcome these difficulties, though.

  11. Add issuing and expiry dates somewhere within plesk panel

    We use Let's Encrypt for almost all our clients on our shared server. 1 of our clients emailed us stating that his SSL was expiring soon so I hoped on the server to check and I couldn't find any info regarding issue or expiration date. I had to visit the websites frontend and check the SSL info that way. I think it would be very helpful to have that information displayed somewhere within Plesk Panel.

  12. Checking Wordpress Plugins/Themes against the Wpvulndb

    The Wordpress Toolkit utilities in Onyx are awesome, but it would be pretty cool it could also check currently installed plugins/themes(versions) against the WPScan Vulnerability Database https://wpvulndb.com/ or some similar service so that known vulnerabilities could be highlighted, or automatically forced to be updated...

  13. Sort the list of Plesk server accounts on iOS mobile app in alphabetical order.

    At the moment the list is unsorted, with an larger number of Plesk servers is totally confusing. Just sort it in alphabetical order.

  14. Interface that show progress process before download

    Many customers can not wait and press the download button too often. That generates to many big TEMP files in the /tmp folder.

  15. Backup and restoration

    Hi, To restore a single file from FTP repository, it required whole full to download and then restore required data. Which consumes lot of time. Please try to work this backup/restore operation like other backup application where we can select required data and it get easily download without time consuming.

    Also the backup tab should give option like dayswise full, incremental backup. Start and stop backup schedule, etc...

  16. disable automatic greylisting activation for new domains

    If i add a new domain in a subscription, greylisting is automaticly activated, just because it's enabled on the server.

    It would be much better if customers have to activate greylisting manually in their settings, like the spamfilter.

    A workaround with Event Manager is possible but a bit inconvenient.

  17. Custom Email Server Help Tips

    The settings for mail servers have a help tip in the email addresses management page, and in the users' Plesk Account pages.

    If a Plesk server is set up strictly as a mail server, and has DNS handled remotely, the settings in the Help Tips can be incorrect.

    Currently the tips only show the server as the root domain even if the mail server's actual DNS points (as an example) mail.domain.tld to the server, requiring the settings to include the subdomain.

    If I add the domain as "subdomain.domain.tld" in settings, then the server tips are correct but the email addresses…

  18. add backup password protection to Backup Manager Backups (NO..it doesn't have it at the mo)

    This may also be a security issue.
    Currently there are no special protection of user content in the backup. Plesk protects only its sensitive data, web content archived without any encryption.

    If some gains ADMIN access to a wordpress/drupal/other web applications install parts of the Plesk container file system, cron jobs, etc will be compromised and would undoubtably increase exponentially the chances of the system to be exploited with virus, rootkits, malware “indirectly” affecting Plesk. (as an analogy no point to build a metal wall if the door is still glass)

    So, in other words ... if a wordpress installation…

  19. Have multiple IPs in one subscription

    Make each site able to run on its own IP.

    If you would support this feature, please please tell us in the comments how you would use it - i.e. for SSL

  20. Create only mail accounts when mail is actually enabled, instead of on domain creation

    As soon as any account is created in Plesk, a mail account is setup in Smartermail, used for managing the mail domain. This is one of the few minor issues for those using Plesk in a load balanced solution (which is actually remarkably possible!). It is also tricky for those running a limited smartermail license (e.g. 250 accounts, many of which are now unwanted Plesk management accounts).

    It should not be so difficult to setup the mail account only when mail is enabled on a domain, and have Plesk just leave the mail server alone for domains that do not…
