  1. 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

  2. Add functionality to install, modify and manage wordpress or joomla via API

    Right now you can set a service plan to have WordPress or Joomla pre-installed with any new subscriptions, however the installation data such as admin usernames, passwords, site titles are randomized more so if the subscription/domain is setup via API. I think it could be nice if there was an option to install them with custom data or customize them via API. such that when installing via API, i can explicitly set the site title, admin username and passwords, database usernames and passwords etc.

  3. Add custom dns recursion settings via Plesk GUI or CLI and avoid overwriting by Plesk

    Going to Tools & Settings > DNS Template > DNS Recursion Settings, it's not possible to set a custom list of IPs or hostnames, it's only possible to choose between different options: any host, localnets, localhost.

    As a workaround to this limitation, i'ts required to customize the options section in the /etc/named.conf file, but it gets overwritten by Plesk.

    Please, add the possibility to customize the dns recursion settings via Plesk GUI and to keep the custom allow-recursive set in /etc/named.conf file.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Add support for MicroSoft Web Deploy 4.0

    Web Deployv.4.0 was installed on the server before Plesk.
    Now WebDeploy is displayed as installed in Plesk installer.
    However, it is not detected by Plesk in Tools & Settings > Server Components(Refresh does not help either).

    Please add support for WebDeploy 4.0

  7. 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,…

    Now Plesk uses RSA encryption method, but we would like to use ECC CSR support as it's considered more modern.

    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

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Add the option "Security of wp-content/uploads folder only"

    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.

  13. Migrations- & Transfer-Manager german localization

    There is no localization available for Plesk migrator tool which is rather new extension provided by Plesk. As for now, it is available in English only.
    I wish it in German.

    You can import and edit databases via PhpMyAdmin in Plesk. If you need to open PhpMyAdmin just open “Databases” in domain controls of selected domain, create database and click at “Webadmin” link in the right side of the corresponding row in the list.

    Since version 12.1 in addition to PhpMyAdmin Plesk contains own tools for import and export databases, which are available via Plesk UI. Please visit the following forum threads to learn how to access Plesk 12.1 preview:

    Windows:

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

    Dear Parallels Web Presence Builder/Site Builder 4.5 Support,

    With reference to the bug #PPB-4351 (related RT ticket: 1962652, 1984040)
    Forum post: http://forum.sp.parallels.com/threads/enquiry-on-site-builder-4-5-and-proftpd-1-3-5-ppb-4351.330765/
    Article: http://kb.sp.parallels.com/en/123560

    However, the upgrade from Site Builder 4.5 to WPB 12 is not smooth.
    In our testing,
    a few Site Builder 4.5 website (around 20% websites) cannot be imported successfully into WPB 12, it raises error message during Site Builder import,
    and even the website can be imported, all previous Site Builder 4.5 module data will be lost.

    As per paid RT ticket #1984040 suggestion, I placed a user voice custom patch request.

    Please kindly provide a…

    There was a bug in Plesk that caused notifications about the same updates to be sent every day until these updates were installed. This bug was fixed in the latest Plesk MU (#32). We suggest to install this MU and see if notifications are still bothering you and your users. If they are, you can turn them off completely:

    Go to Tools & Settings > Notifications and clear the checkboxes next to these items:

    APS application updates (administrator’s digest)
    APS application updates (reseller’s digest)
    APS application updates (customer’s digest)

  19. Fix the "Permission denied" problem in API RPC for customers

    When using API RPC in an extension it returns "Permission denied" response for customers on any function in version 12.0.18 update #5. There is similar problem in version 11.5.30 update #47 except that the error is thrown in try..catch statement calling "pm_ApiRpc::getService()" method.

  20. Editing Multiple Files on Code Editor.

    At we need to do some small changes when we are on the go & we need to edit multiple files then it actually becomes a headache as we need to edit a file remember what has been edited [and all the previous function names and classes] close and open another file change accordingly.

    It is difficult on large projects especially when debugging as we need open same file multiple times for reference.

    So a option to "Edit in a New Tab" is a good way and also would be nice if it happens in code editor instead of text…
