  1. Multiple MySQL Versions configureable over Panel

    I'd be happy if you could integrate multiple MySQL Versions into Plesk. Each Customer should be able to choose his MySQL. Also choosing more than only one version should be implemented.

      Thank you for your input. We will consider the possibility of implementing this feature in upcoming releases.

      Since Plesk Onyx panel admin will be able to install different MySQL versions as a Docker containers, then the DB servers can be connected as remote DB to Plesk.

    • Webmail - Enable users to edit out of office (auto-response) message in webmail directly

      I'm not sure if any webmail option right now allows the email user to update their out of office / auto response message. I think the email user has to login to Plesk to be able to edit that right now (which is annoying).

      Anyone have any suggestion on this?

        • Show reason of deferred message in mail queue

          Actually it's possible to show deferred messages headers in : Tools and settings > mail server settings > mail queue

          It would be very useful if it's possible to show the reason why the message is deffered or stuck in the queue (/var/spool/postfix/defer).

          • Rspamd support

            There is relatively new anti-spam tool - Rspamd. I think, it worth to be integrated with Plesk as an alternative to SpamAssassin. It shows better performance as the author says here http://rspamd.com/misc/2016/03/03/rspamd-performance.html

              • powerdns support

                It'd be awesome if we can get support for powerdns support instead of bind9.

                • Add PHP Composer to chrooted

                  Please add PHP Composer to chrooted Environments.
                  Many Customers Need PHP Composer to install various scripts, cms Systems and libaries.

                  A current big Problem is the new typo-neos System - you must use Composer to install at sources correctly

                  A other Problem are PHP API's and Libaries like Payment Companies like PAYMILL etc..

                    Thank you for your input. We are already considering adding PHP Composer in the future releases. We cannot promise you that it will be chrooted, though, since that’s quite expensive to develop. Please let us know how important for you to have PHP Composer chrooted in the comments.

                  • Plesk SpamAssassin configuration options

                    It would be much better if server-wide and per-mailbox options were available in Plesk to add SpamAssassin rules.

                    SpamAssassin can be configured by the command line, but this is difficult for many of us.

                            Please make possible generating and activating DKIM/DomainKey without having active local DNS server. Consider following situation:

                            You have a website that use as sender your domain when sending email and you are want to follow best practices in order to reach inbox, but this domain uses another server for DNS (cloudflare for example, godday, etc.). In this case you need to have DKIM/DomainKey signed mails without the need to activate local DNS server. Also mail management could be set off for that domain, but mails still should be able to be signed.

                            I believe that this scenrario is real and…

                            • Add "Move to spam folder" option in Windows (currently available in Linux)

                              There is an spam filtering option to "Move to spam folder XXXX" on Linux, but not on Windows (Plesk 11+).

                              Unfortunately, horde doesn't work so well and every time when a message with broken header arrives, horde displays "Invalid Address" and no subject to all inbox messages. The described fix in https://kb.plesk.com/en/121175 doesn't work in this cases, forcing us to find the broken message manually (or scripting something to do the dirty job).

                              This feature should exists in Windows env as in Linux.

                                  • Limit amount of backups per customer

                                    Hey guys,

                                    I am sure that I speak for hundreds of users when I say that having a limit on backups per customers and or subscriptions should be an important and available option. The option to also limit backups based on the customers subscription storage size will be even better. Otherwise, customers who overuse the backup option will dramatically increase storage space on the server without realization of the administrator. It wouldn't be ideal for an administrator to enter the dumps folder to delete random customer backups. Really hope you guys can resolve this and add this feature as soon…

                                    • add BROTLI support to nginx and apache

                                      as brotli seams to be a up to 20% better comression library than gzip and used by many CDN Providers it should be possible to switch on in plesk.

                                      • Have an option to deliver email addressed to VERP-style email addresses.

                                        Postfix already has the option, but it doesn't seem to be supported on Plesk.

                                        I want to use VERP so I can automatically process bounce messages with a script. I send out bulk email with a return-path like bounces+uid-john=example.com@ourdomain.com and I want the bounces to be delivered to bounces@ourdomain.com

                                        Postfix has the configuration parameter recipient_delimiter. If I set that in /etc/postfix/main.cf, the server accepts the email and passes it to plesk_virtual. But then it is silently discarded instead of being delivered to the bounces mailbox.

                                        The only way I see with the current set up to deliver these messages…

                                        • Add ip manually to fail2ban

                                          It is not possible to add an ip manually to fail2ban trough Plesk interface. Sometimes you detect an offending ip address which you want to ban from your system, before it is detected by recidive rule.
