      • Temporary FTP accounts (with expire date)

        It would be great to have ftp account with an expire date.
        A sort of temporary ftp accounts.

        This becomes really usefull when you need to share your ftp details temporary with a webdeveloper, or somebody else to maintain of check an website.

        I always make a new FTP account for this sort of events, but then forget to delete them. It would be real nice if you could set a expire date that the account automaticly blocks itself after that date is past.

          • provide more nginx options

            Have the ability to provide more Nginx builds/packages. For example, offer a 'nginx-full'-package with more modules.

            For example, I need the Nginx headers more module. Since this need to be built-in at compile time, it isn't possible to add this later on. So that would mean replace the Plesk version of Nginx with the distro-default. (Heck, why does Plesk need it's own Nginx-build, anyway?)

            No, passing headers from Apache is not an option, especially when I'm using the Nginx - PHP-FPM setup.

            • Docker Compose to use over the admin panel

              I would like to administrate multiple Docker container via Compose, editable over the Admin panel. Some easy deploying mechanism including the Volumes of the container from my local machine over upload or git would be nice.

              • Renew a subscription

                Ability to renew a subscription based on the subscription plan's configured subscription expiry date.

                So if a subscription expires in ten days from now and it's subscription plan is set to expire in one year, I would like to be able to click a Renew button to extend the subscription with one more expiry unit (1 year in this case, 2 years if the subscription plan would have been set to expire every two years).

                Also show renewal date in the list and sort by renewal date

                  • Create daily md5-hashes of the web-content of a domain, to quickly identify tampering or hacking.

                    Let Plesk on every night optionally create/compare md5-hashes from all files in the domains storage-space (web,httpdoc,ftp) and update this in a simple list (database), sortable by date of last change, size, number of changes. Indicating "changed files in the last xx days" to have a time-window to drill down.

                    In addition, accumulate all vhosts together into a seperate "Admin-View", where ALL domains are put together alphabetically.

                    Add an additional button "snapshot", so one could create a list of all webfiles on request. For example, when an incident has been cleaned, then click "snapshot" and then wait some time to see…

                    • provide a way to see why a subscription is locked

                      Many times I find that some subscriptions won't sync because they are locked. I'd really like to know why they are locked. So far, I've been able to unlock & sync with no noticeable changes. But I'm left wondering what caused the lock in the first place. And I'm afraid that I'll realize later something no longer works as expected.

                      • Allow using a centralized SmarterMail Server for BOTH LINUX and WINDOWS Plesk installations

                        The implementation of the centralized smartermail in plesk onyx for windows is good, but it should also be possible to integrate this feature into the linux edition.

                        Many hosters provide both windows and linux hosting with ONE centralised mail solution. Since the integration for winodws is already done I suppose it shouldn't be too hard to integrate it into the linux version as well since smartermail is completely API based.

                                • Fail2ban setting findtime per Jail

                                  In Fail2ban (great idea to include it in plesk!) settings you can set "Time interval for detection of subsequent attacks" (findtime) in general. But it would be interesting this setting per Jail.
                                  Why?
                                  you could have 2 jail with same filter but different findtime. Example:
                                  Jail 1) 5 failures in 600 seconds: 1800 seconds ban
                                  Jail 2) 30 failures in 86400 seconds: 604800 seconds ban

                                  There are bots that detect if you have some protection fail2ban or similar and it will adapt, login attempt every 300 seconds for example. Jail 1 no detect this attack, but Jail 2 yes.

                                  • Use Lets Encrypt to secure FTPs connections

                                    Hi,

                                    I usually use the ftp.site.com subdomain for the client FTP connections.
                                    And to secure those connections I enabled FTPs. But at this point the users receive a certificate host name mismatch because the FTPs connection is being setup using the VPS Lets Encrypt cert.

                                    It would be nice to use the Lets Encrypt certificate service also to secure the FTPs connections.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • 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`.

                                      • Fix File and Folder Permissions for docroot from Plesk UI

                                        When switching from Apache to FastCGI the Service Provider needs to change the permissions for the customer from apache:apache to <user>:psacln

                                        This can be fixed by having a button in Plesk which does:

                                        find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -not -user $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chown $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER:psacln
                                        find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type d -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755
                                        find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type f -not -name "*.pl" -not -name "*.cgi" -not -name "*.sh" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0644
                                        find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type f -name "*.cgi" -print0 -o -name "*.pl" -print0 -o -name "*.sh" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755

                                        I…

                                        • Multiple users for the Git extension

                                          It would be great if it would be possible to create multiple users which can use the Git repository. Today only one user can access the Git repository. It is the admin user which was created during the creation of the subdomain. New created Web Users for the subdomain can not access the Git repository. It is a feature which I am missing because I wanted to host a private Git repository for our small private team.
