  3. Add nginx-only hostings

    I'll like to create a hosting that only use Nginx as webserver. Also I'll like to do this with Node.js, but I think it will not be approved.

    Current scope for Plesk Onyx is to enable an ability to serve all http(s) requests by Nginx only.

    Note: apache will still be installed. Switching of apache to optional component is subject for the next release.

    Update:

    The ability to turn off Apache and have content served by nginx only on a per-website basis is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.0.14 preview. We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-preview-and-feedback.337172

    How to try this feature:

    Go to any website, click Apache & nginx Settings and deselect the “Proxy mode” checkbox under nginx settings. The feature is also available in Service Plans.

    We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!

  4. add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

    add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

    For developers/database admins, sometimes backups are taken in different
    formats and compression is done in different formats.

    when compressed files other than ZIP file is uploaded for websites data
    files, there is no way to uncompress them via PLESK, one has to go to SSH
    and then extract to use it.

    So compressing files/folders to multiple formats and then extraction from
    multiple compressed formats will allow more ease of use for users where
    they deal with no. of formats!

  5. 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:

  7. More out of the Box configuration for Microcaching (Nginx)

    As far as now in Plesk 17.8.9 Beta there are just limited options to configurate Nginx Mircocache.

    There is no option to Cache every time.
    Even if you de-select all of the "Bypass cache when" Rules your file looks like that.

    /var/www/vhosts/system/domain.tld/conf/nginx.conf

    [...]
    proxy_no_cache $no_cache;
    proxy_cache_bypass $no_cache;
    [...]

    But I want Microcache to Cache even if nocache is set.
    Also these values are not configurable:

    For Microcache

    proxy_cache_valid
    proxy_cache_background_update
    proxy_cache_ignore_headers
    proxy_cache_buffer_size
    proxy_cache_buffers
    proxy_cache_busy_buffers_size
    proxy_cache_temp_file_write_size
    proxy_cache_read_timeout
    proxy_cache_lock
    proxy_cache_methods
    proxy_cache_revalidate
    proxy_cache_min_uses
    proxy_http_version
    proxy_set_header

    I would love to have some more options to fully configurate Microcache.

    Thanks in advance and best regards,
    Martin

  8. Setting alternate directory path location of the vhost per Domain or service packet

    At the moment it is not possible to change or choose the vhost path for a domain. Every Domain is installed in the standard vhost path, at example /var/www/vhosts
    If someone has a Server with attached fast and slow storage or big and small storage, it should be possible for the administrator to choose between them when installing a new Domain. It could be possible to give a customer service packages with faster storage for mission critical domains or giving him a lot of space for another domain located on disk drives mounted to another location.

    At the moment you can change default vhosts location in Plesk using the command-line utility transvhosts.pl
    Just check available options with

    plesk bin transvhosts.pl —help

    Changing vhosts directory location for part of domains is impossible now.

    Anyway thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.

    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

  9. API: let customer be able to manage his own site-aliases

    Currently only the Administrators can manage site-aliases with the API.
    Why is it not possible for customers to manage site-aliases of their own sites, while they can manage their sites and subscriptions ?
    Now I have to use administrator access in the API on a single website, which is a security issue. This website can now manage everything. I would prefer to use the credentials of the customer to manage it.

  10. Statistic usage per each page on website

    I can see the bandwidth of each domain on my webserver. But now i came with the idea (I dont know if it was requested before, or if it is a feature of the web host edition only) that you can see the bandwidth each page uses, so you can see it for the whole domain, but also every page you have in your plesk folder, so you have a more detailed overview what people like to look at on your page.Maybe a calculator how many mb one user uses (there are tools on the web for this, but something…

  11. Support dynamically assigned IPv6 addresses on Plesk for Linux

    Currently, Plesk for Linux filters out IPv6 addresses that were assigned dynamically by use of Stateless Address Autoconfiguration, or other means: https://plesk.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000239114

    This greatly limits IPv6 functionality in Plesk due to the fact that all hyperscalers (Amazon, Google, Azure, Vultr, etc.) provide IPv6 addresses using the autoconfiguration method.

  12. Support for modern web statistics programs such as GoAccess

    It would be nice if https://goaccess.io/ was supported for statistics.

    - Written in C, so faster than a perl script such as awstats.
    - Can be used in the traditional way to generate static HTML statistics pages from log files.But a more advanced integration could also provide real-time statistics.

  13. Exclude internal requests from the Traffic statistics

    Plesk seems to add up the request response size,
    including those of its own extenal IP address.
    We would like to disable this behaviour or filter out this info, because
    this is not the actual traffic.

    We have customers that have a lot of internal requests because of some
    caching module where about 50% of the total traffic is from its own IP.

  15. Nginx restart interval functionality

    An Nginx restart interval should be helpful for situations when users use API calls to modify domain's PHP settings. This results in multiple nginx reloads:

    /var/log/plesk/rc_actions:

    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:26:00 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload
    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:26:44 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload
    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:26:59 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload
    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:28:06 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload
    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:29:11 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload

    A similar functionality exists for apache in Tools & Settings > Apache web server > Restart interval.

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, this request contains several different suggestions, and it’s not technically possible to properly handle them inside one request. Please consider creating separate feature requests for each of the items below:

    - PHP – compiled with maximum support for all extensions
    You can use PHP from original OS vendor repo. Please create a new request and let us know why do you not use OS vendor repo and what exactly extension do you need.

    - NGINX – compiled with maximum support for all extensions
    Each new module affects nginx. Could you explain what exactly nginx module do you want? Please create a new request and let us know what module do you need.

    - Apache – compiled with maximum support for all extensions
    Plesk doesn’t ship Apache, it only downloads it from original OS vendor repo.

  19. Add ability to manage TLS version per domain basis

    For now it is possible to manage specific TLS version and cipher suite only on server level, meaning that particular TLS versopm will be applicable for all domains at once. It would be nice if Plesk introduces the ability to manage TLS version per domain basis, which would add more flexibility for Plesk administrators.

  20. Redirect Plesk from HTTP to HTTPS on Windows

    Redirect http://hostname:8443 to https://hostname:8443 on Windows.
