  1. Increase migration speed

    The current Migration Manager (Linux) is painfully slow. A full server migration (+/- 300GB of data) over Gigabit takes more then 12 hours. During this time lots of website will have changed MySQL data getting lost after the migration.

    The issue with the migration system in its current state is that if does site-by-site migration. If migrates site A, then goes to site B, then C, etc, etc. Because each site migration consists of a alot of different steps the servers are mostly waiting for each other to finish some process like creating mailboxes.

    The load on both the source…

    In 12.5 we changed from PMM that performed operations step by step to Migrator extension, which performs data transfer in multiple data streams. The feature to make it fully asynchronous operations not only for transfer stage as well as other performance improvements (specifically for Windows migrations) is in the cards.

    Please let us know on https://talk.plesk.com if still have problems with migration speed.

  2. Redirect from HTTP to HTTPS for secured webmails

    You should place a redirect from http://webmail.domain.tld to https. Even the option "Hosting Settings > Permanent SEO-safe 301 redirect from HTTP to HTTPS" won't redirect the webmail; in any case these should be two separate options as the website may not support HTTPS yet.

    Hi!

    The functionality is now available:
    1. Linux: in the SSL It! Plesk Extension: https://ext.plesk.com/packages/3c4117f6-c05c-4d3b-9173-60f10096a9c4-sslit
    2. Windows: in Plesk Obsidian (by default)

    How to find it in SSL It! Extension:
    1. install SSL It! Extension (it’s available for Plesk 17.8+)
    2. go to > SSL/TLS Certificates
    3. if there is no SSL Certificate installed on the domain – issue one (using, for example, free Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificate)
    4. if an SSL Certificate is installed on the domain, there is a switcher “HTTPHTTPS redirect”, this switcher has an option “Webmail”, turn it on.
    5. Voila!

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

  3. Database permissions

    It'd be handy to grant only specific permissions to certain database users (e.g. SELECT only for ready-only access etc.).

  4. Design a better responsive theme

    Please design a better user interface for the control panel. It is awfully outdated and extremely ugly. Look at the Cpanel design, something simple like that.

  7. Add the possibility to exclude selected files or file types from server backup.

    If a domain or some domains host video file, or non important large video files, it would be great if the administrator has the possibility to exclude them from backup. For example marking to exclude all "*.avi" files.

  8. it should be possible for the admin to login as a reseller user

    It should be possible for the admin to login as a reseller user, this is necessary to give good support to the reseller.

    It is not pratical to ask the reseller is username/password to login for suport, CPANEL and HSPHERE does this correctly

    Starting with WPT 4.6, WordPress administrators can automatically update their website URL in the WordPress database and wp-config.php file based on the actual current URL. This procedure is particularly useful after migrating a website from a different location like your local workstation. The Update Site URL feature is available in the “hamburger” (context drop-down menu) on a WordPress site card.

    If you have feedback on this feature, let us know at our forum (https://talk.plesk.com) or other communication channels.

  10. include a .htaccess ->nginx converter

    Nginx on 11.5 does not support .htaccess files, which most of the CMS use.
    htaccess content should automatically be synced with nginx configuration, if nginx is the php processor.

    example:
    https://timmehosting.de/htaccess-converter

  11. backup local and remote at once

    I've seen many options for backups, but it would be a great addition if we could use the backup schedule to make a backup local AND somewhere remote.

    Now i can schedule backups either only local or only remote and since i cannot make multiple schedules for remote backups and local backups i have to make local backups with the scheduler and do things by hand to get another backup in my personal FTP storage.

    I prefer to have backups local, for quick restore availability and remote for when sh*t hits the fan.

    So, i'd like to see an option…

  13. Autoconfigure NGINX for WordPress Permalinks

    WordPress Permalinks are not working with Nginx.
    The Webpage shows the error: wordpress 404 ngix
    The URL-rewriting with other Permalinks than pageID is not working with Nginx.

    Implementing this seems not easy (for me), just when you also want to use a WP caching tool.
    Have a look here:

    https://codex.wordpress.org/Nginx

    Please implement this out of the box by activating with checkbox etc...

    Thanks

    We have addressed this request to a certain (reasonable) extent. Specifically:

    • WP permalinks will work if nginx works in the nginx-only mode for a website, serving FPM
    • WP permalinks won’t work if nginx is working as a proxy in front of Apache
    • WP permalinks won’t work in case of custom error pages.

    This change is available since around WPT 4.3.2. Let us know if you have any questions or comments on our forum: https://talk.plesk.com/forums/wordpress-toolkit.750/

  14. Redirect HTTP to HTTPS for Plesk Admin Interface

    It would be really nice to have Users directly redirected to SSL/https when calling Plesk with http.

    Parallels had tried this in the past, but it never worked for Mozilla Firefox. An universal solution would really be good.

  16. add the option to add custom wordpress themes and plugins and enable the user to set those as standard for installation

    As of now only the standard free Wordpress themes and plugins are available. This is kinda stupid since professional sites rely on professional themes and plugins being bought from reliable vendors.

    As such it even makes sense to remove all basic themes upon installation.

    The ideal option would be:
    1. Supply and store a custom Wordpress theme or plugin in Plesk (which might include also a Child-theme)
    2. Offer the option to supply that theme or plugin from 1. as standard to any Wordpress installation
    3. Offer the option to update/upgrade the theme or plugin centrally

    In themes it is…

    Hey everyone,

    We have released the ability to upload and install custom plugins and themes in WPT 2.5. Uploaded plugins/themes are added to the plugin/theme pool and are available for installation. You can also add them to plugin/theme sets and preinstall them whenever a new subscription is created.

    If you have other ideas or feedback on how this feature works, reach us at our forum here: https://talk.plesk.com/forums/plesk-extensions.725/.

    Thank you for your feedback!

  17. Option to set global hostmaster address (SOA)

    Right now, every domain gets the hostmaster mailaddress from the correspondent client data in Plesk. It is stored in dns_zone table and not changeable globally.
    Especially for resellers it would be great to override this setting with a global hostmaster address (e.g. hostmaster@domain.com) set through Plesk admin interface - a manual change to be done each time a new domain is registered is not really comfortable.

    Furthermore, if the client mail is set as hostmaster, addresses like name.surname@domain.com are not escaped and lead to a soa entry like name@surname.domain.com. This should also be fixed.

  18. Roundcube webmail

    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=274996

    Roundcube looks very clean and if a client is use to it, they often like to stay with it.
    Could Roundcube be added to Plesk as a default option?
