  1. Mailqueue View Sender Account

    Show not only sender and reciepient email adress. Show the account (Email-Adress) of the authorized Sender. Would be a great feature, if a mail account was hacked. So you would not have to check mail logs.

    Could you please explain in more details what is usage scenario of adding this information? What is the case when you currently need to check this info in logs? Where specifically this account of authorized sender must be shown? And what you mean as “authorized sender”?

    UPD: Sorry, we are closing the request as no information were provided for over a month.

  2. After adding SSL certificate subscription is shown as locked

    Presently when you add a SSL certificate to the subscription it becomes locked, though there were no changes in comparison to the service plan.
    When you then click Unlock & Sync it becomes unlocked.

    The request is not to lock the subscription after SSL certificate additon.

  5. Make it possible to download large backup files by clicking the green arrow in the backup list.

    Large backup files can not be downloaded since the browser needs to keep connection while the backup is prepared (copied from FTP, recompressed, etc.).

  7. Fix the bug in 11.5.30 that generates warnings on backups

    After upgrading to 11.5.30 my backups now generate warning emails. There are forum comments about this dating back to July 2013 but the issue doesn't appear to have been addressed....

    Failed to pack files dailyexample.comuser-data_1403160500 in /var/lib/psa/dumps/domains/example.com [ 3725971456 bytes free of 10737418240 bytes total on mount point 0]

    For security reason backup is performed on behalf of subscription system user. System user has no read access to conf file.

    Could you provide more details on how you see this function operated? There maybe different technologies beyond load balancing and they may have different requirements on your infrastructure

    Plesk doesn’t ship MySQL, it only downloads it from original OS vendor repo and it is quite likely it may be outdated there.

    Thank you for reporting this bug, we have confirmed it (bug ID for your reference: PPP-37247). Note: only feature requests are allowed here, so we would appreciate if you post bugs and issues on our forum at https://talk.plesk.com. We are closing this request, since it does not contain any feature suggestions.

    The command `plesk repair dns -sync-zones` should help re-generate all zones.

  19. Google Authenticator extension: use HTML "autocomplete" attribute

    Use HTML autocomplete="false" on the 6-digit PIN input field, so the browser autocomplete feature will not suggest past PINs.

    Since these are always one-time use, it never makes sense to remember and autocomplete values of the PIN entry field.

  20. outgoing spam prevention / anti hack

    Recently i found 50000 spam emails in the mail queue. It seems one of the websites got hacked (i am guessing through joomla plugin) and a encoded php script was installing that was sending spam like crazy. Even after enabling email limitation , it didn't actually say where these emails were coming from as the current implementation only lists email accounts and totally ignores scripts when listings (only when counting domains).

    So.

    1. needs to scan for encoded php scripts
    2. needs to scan for folder privileges of cms systems

    Thank you for your feedback!

    Unfortunately, this request contains three 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:

    1. “needs to scan for encoded php scripts”

    Please clarify the scenario you are asking about.

    2. “needs to scan for folder privileges of cms systems”

    We could consider the possibility of implementing this feature in future Plesk releases.

    3. “in this link : https://[domain].com:8443/admin/outgoing-mail/list/type/subscription needs to list in addition tot the subscriptions, script locations (php origin script) which sends email.”

    Please see this idea:
    https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/12827919-show-currently-recently-mail-sending-scripts

    Please create a new request with each item, so that others can vote for it.

    Thank you.
