  1. Kolab Groupware

    Kolab Groupware with Roundcube would be a nice feature hosting companies like myself offer good alternatives to MS Exchange and Google Apps.

  2. Wordpress Update-Notification E-Mails - adjust Mail Frequency

    As lot of our Customers / Reseller complain abaut the Daily sent Wordpress Update Mails - it would be important if we could change the Frequency of the Mails ... so we could say send them once per week ...

    We know that we can disable them completely - but that's not an option - as it's important to urge Customers to upgrade their WP installations ... but E-Mail every day is too much! ;-)

    Thank you

  3. Application "Joomla 3.2.2" - Language and sample data BUG

    I've installed Joomla 3.2.2 as Application in Plesk Panel 11.5.
    I selected that I don't want to install sample data and that Joomla should be in German.

    But there are sample data.
    And German is selected as default language, but my administrator page is already in English.

    Is there a bug in Plesk-Application?

  5. Add possibility for Detach button in WordPress Toolkit, that it can check and remove records for non-existed WP instance from the WordPress

    At the moment the situation is following:

    I scenario

    The WordPress instance is installed in the /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/old/ directory.
    If the mentioned directory was manually removed from the server-side and the Detach button was pressed after in Domains > example.com > WordPress, the leftovers of the non-existed WordPress instance still can be found in WordPress SQLite database /usr/local/psa/var/modules/wp-toolkit/wp-toolkit.sqlite3

    II scenario

    The WordPress instance is installed in the /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/old/ directory and files from this directory were manually moved to /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/.
    The Detach button was pressed after in Domains > example.com > WordPress, however the leftovers from the WordPress instance that currently is…

  8. 1 Click install wordpress core files

    Hi,

    A must have feature would be to have a button to 1 click install wordpress core files.

    Lets say you got a wordpress site with wordpress 4.9.
    This wordpress got hacked, you got tons of files infected in wordpress core.
    In one click wp toolkit can replace all website's cores files with fresh ones.

    That would help handling with hacked websites in a matter of minutes, instead of doing it manually.

  9. Allow changing additional wp-cron task settings

    When "Disable wp-cron.php option" is enabled, it is possible to customize only task's execution time, or it will be re-created with the default settings (details: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/administrator-guide/73391/#setting-up-a-regular-run-of-wp-cron-php).

    Add an option to customize other wp-cron.php task's properties (description, send notifications or not, etc).

    We released the ‘Mail Log Browser’ extension

    https://ext.plesk.com/packages/942273dc-a99b-4744-9e8f-c4a4b047c63d-log-browser

    This extension allows you to check the statuses of all emails sent to and from your server by reviewing maillog and filtering by date, source, or any string pattern; also it’s possible to check mail logs in real-time (‘tail -fn0’ analog).

    It’s available for Plesk Administrators and supports Postfix and Qmail mail servers.

  12. In WordPress Toolkit Settings, provide an option for default table name prefix

    Currently, we can define the default database prefix, but it assigns a random table name prefix, which is confusing to users. I'd like an option to specify the default table name prefix

  13. Please show what is about to be deleted in the confirmation dialogs

    I appreciate a lot that you ask users if they really want to delete.
    In many cases one doesn't know if they have (unintentionally) selected too much. So it would be nice if either a list of objects (subdomains, mail addresses or what ever) or at least the number of items being deleted would be shown.

  14. Show selected items when removing Service Plan, Subscription, Customer, Domain or Reseller

    Currently, when trying to remove any Service Plan, Subscription, Domain, Customer or Reseller, the following text is shown:

    "Confirm that you want to remove the selected domains"

    However, it would be perfect to show the selected items and the selected quantity.

  15. Restart services on failure using systemd

    We've noticed that Plesk services like plesk-php72-fpm are sometimes killed by the out of memory killer or otherwise crash and require manual intervention by us. The services could be made more resilient by adding the following file to supplement Plesk's service file and reloading systemd.

    cat /root/reload-on-fail.conf

    [Service]
    Restart=on-failure
    RestartSec=5s

    cp /root/reload-on-fail.conf /usr/lib/systemd/system/plesk-php*-fpm.service.d/reload-on-fail.conf && systemctl daemon-reload

    I've also made an ansible playbook for this:
    https://gist.github.com/nbeernink/679b8c0bc635158b0ea4dfb96e10c7c5

    Additionally, you can also add this to services like nginx, mysql/mariadb, dovecot and postfix and they will restart on failure as well.

    However instead of us all running these playbooks on old and new servers,…

    We’ve released Let’s Encrypt Extension 2.7.2: https://ext.plesk.com/packages/f6847e61-33a7-4104-8dc9-d26a0183a8dd-letsencrypt

    2.7.2 (17 January 2019)
    • [*] In Plesk for Linux 17.8 and later, the extension now supports issuing ECDSA certificates. To have the extension issue certificates signed with ECDSA, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:
    [ext-letsencrypt]
    key-algorithm = ECDSA
    ecdsa-curve-name = prime256v1 ; can be omitted

  17. Make Plesk File Sharing removeable

    It's a prominent feature that is "offered" everywhere in the GUI but one can't get rid of it when it's not used and it's not uninstallable also. Please make it removable.

    Of course, also include support for clone/remove instances using command-line support (https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/administrator-guide/plesk-administration/wordpress-toolkit-in-plesk.73563/)

  19. Limitation for FTP username

    Presently there is 16-char limitation for FTP username. This hinders migration from obscure hosting systems that use longer usernames.
    Please, consider implementing the feature that would remove this 16-char limitation if Providers opts to do so.

    Securing the whole wp-content will break many commercial templates, while blocking script execution under the wp-content/uploads and wp-content/upgrade folder have no known side-effects.
