  2. Ability to customize nginx per site template e.g. Location /, Location ~, etc

    Hello, I'm using Plesk Onyx and I've also bumped into problems with not being able to set correct NGINX Directives.

    Regarding nginx and nginx configuration for various CMS, Web Apps etc, I see that a lot of directives need to be set and there are a lot of scattered issues around in the web.
    For example most CMS will require a
    location / { ... }
    or for google's pagespeed test we need to add expire headers e.g.
    location ~* \.*.(jpg|jpeg|png|gif|ico|css|js)$ {
    expires 14d;
    }

    I think the Model to building the final vhost conf file should be revised instead…

  3. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  9. powerdns support

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

  10. 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).

    There is an opensorce for windows.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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..

  18. Compile PHP 7.2 with Argon2

    Argon2 is a new feature of PHP 7.2 as stated here: http://php.net/releases/7_2_0.php. It won the password hashing competition and is the recommended hashing algorithm.

    It must be enabled my re-compiling PHP 7.2 with `--with-password-argon2`.

  19. Possibility to activate DKIM and DomainKey without active local DNS

    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…

  20. 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.
