  1. Implement MariaDB 10.4 support

    Please implement MariaDB 10.4 support. We have upgraded to MariaDB 10.4 by mistake and now we're jumping through hoops adding new websites / DB users.

    The main issue is that MariaDB have moved the 'user' table to a table called 'global_priv' and Plesk is still trying to read from the old one ( which they've converted into a View, so it errors out ).

    We can't downgrade, as it's not supported, and we certainly can't roll back. So it would be extremely awesome of you if you'd help with this.

    Also by reading on Reddit and Plesk Support forum, we're…

  3. Search & Replace for Wordpress websites

    This is highly desirable and basic feature.
    When ever user enters "Hosting Settings" and changes the domain, Plesk will detect if a wordpress website is installed, if this domain has wordpress installed - a pop up will show up asking "Would you like to run Search and Replace in the database for the new domain?"

    User will thick V and confirm.
    Then a new pop up will show up showing:

    1. Creating restore point
    2. Running search and replace.

    This feature will save a lot of Hosts the problem with customers / developers changing the domain and not figuring up why the…

    Starting with WPT 4.6, WordPress administrators can automatically update their website URL in the WordPress database and wp-config.php file based on the actual current URL. This procedure is particularly useful after migrating a website from a different location like your local workstation. The Update Site URL feature is available in the “hamburger” (context drop-down menu) on a WordPress site card.

    If you have feedback on this feature, let us know at our forum (https://talk.plesk.com) or other communication channels.

  4. Please remove the very annoying suggestion window when creating support tickets

    It's really very annoying if the input field in the right area is reduced again and again when opening support tickets in order to offer unsuitable support articles. If the articles were at least helpful, the whole thing would still make sense. However, this is rarely the case. Even if you click it away and enter a new word, it will reappear immediately.

  5. indicate password strengh or acceptance during "reset password" process

    There are many customers complaining, they have to try several passwords during the password-reset process, before one is accepted. There is no visual indicator if the typed password fits the safety regulations.

    "Inside" plesk, the password strengh is indicated when they change theirs plesk- , FTP- or e-mail password. Why not during the reset-process?

    The highlight would be an indicator, that permanently shows if the typed password is strong enough or has to be stronger (with a tooltip/hint, what specifications has to be met or which kind of character is missing).

  6. Make all e-mail templates customizable (including password reset e-mail)

    One can currently already customize a number of e-mail templates by going to "Tools and settings" -> "Notifications""

    However it would be nice if all e-mail templates where present there. The e-mail that is sent out on password resets is currently missing.

    I would like to edit that so that the panel's URL in the e-mail does not point to port :8443
    (we run a setup as described in: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/213945625-How-to-make-Plesk-accessible-on-a-hostname-without-entering-the-port- )

  7. Create a wget function on file manager

    Its very common that we need to download a large gb archive into our httpdocs follder.
    With the proper download/wget function on filemanager instead of ssh and then wget, changing ownership , will help us save a lot of time.

  9. manage PHP-FPM max_children

    It is currently quite painful to set and KEEP php-fpm maxchildren to a desired value.
    At the moment the default value of 5 is not available in the management interface and it seems to be reset back to 5 when a change is made in the subscription. Then we get errors about max
    children reached and we have to manually update it once more.
    See here: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/php-fpm-max-children.336889/

    I suggest adding a default value that is used when creating a new subscription and the ability to modify it in the subscription php settings.

  10. MariaDB (MySQL) version selector

    I tried to install MariaDB 10.1 instead of 5.5 that Plesk installs by default and I messed it all up, had to re-install Plesk. There should be a version selector during the installation.

    There should be a full MariaDB integration because it has a lot of adventages in performance comparing to Oracle's MySQL and has a greater team. MariaDB 5.5 is so yesterday.

  12. No http data mix on https default page from parallels

    There is this security warning in Firefox https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-does-content-isnt-secure-affect-my-safety when I access the default page of a server with fresh Plesk installation: https://my.ip.add.ress - reason is mixed content coming from parallels.

  13. Make is easier to test/preview a website when you have multiple sites on an IP.

    The "preview" function doesn't work with Wordpress. Setting up a subdomain is complicated. Modifying localhost file is a ridiculous solution.

  14. Domain blacklist

    We would like customers to manage their domains themselves but limit them to a list of domains defined by the reseller/admin.

    It would be great if a customer could e.g. define himself which domain (alias) should belong to which hosting package.

    The problem at the moment is: If we give customer A the privileges to manage his domains, he could also add a foreign domain (NOT on the server) and configure mail accounts, e.g. *@ebay.com. The result would be that any mail another customer B who also uses our server sends to this domain could be "captured" by customer A.…

  15. Protect plesk gui 11.5.30 with "basic auth" login (optional)

    Hi,

    I'm the only one with access to plesk gui and want a additional "basic auth" protection for 11.5.30. I have MANY access from foreign IPs to my plesk login! Every day IPs testing direct script access (old security holes?). A "basic auth" login will protect the gui for new security leaks.


    11.0.9 use as internal web server lighttpd. There you can make this simple steps to protect gui:

    go to: /etc/sw-cp-server/applications.d/plesk.socket.sh
    add:

    # Limit access to Admin
    auth.backend = "htpasswd"
    auth.backend.htpasswd.userfile = "/opt/psa/admin/htdocs/.htpasswd"
    auth.require = ( "/" =>
    (
    "method" => "basic",
    "realm" => "Your Title",
    "require" => "valid-user"…

  16. "Run Cronjob now"

    Hello, I miss it again and again that I can test my scheduled tasks only if I change the times at once, the task will be executed and then I set the time back to the desired version. Better when I could the scheduled task to test without changing the desired times, a mouse click / run would be. I also an option, with which I can freeze the mail traffic for this task is missing, add it without a code or command to remove (> / dev / null 2> & 1). Sincerely, Danny

    Both Plesk 12 for Windows and Linux are able to send out notifications with empty white list for local mail server:
    - Plesk for Linux uses sendmail CLI (so noe need in SMTP auth)
    - Plesk for Windows uses own, internal SMTP mail account for local mail server or a custom SMTP mail account in case of external mail server

  18. Generate random password for password fields.

    An option for generation of random password in the password fields would be very helpful.

    Please include options for: small/mixed case, letters, numbers, special chars.

  19. Manage Wordpress updates, themes and pluging via CLI

    It is only possible to install a new WordPress instance with such options:
    https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/cli-linux/using-command-line-utilities/wptoolkit-wordpress-toolkit.78685/

    For example:
    plesk ext wp-toolkit --install -domain-name <domain> -auto-updates true -plugins-auto-updates true -themes-auto-updates true

    The other way is to manage it via Plesk GUI for existing domains:
    https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002224733

    Please add a feature to manage all updates for existing wordpress domains via SSH/WP-CLI
