  1. 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…

  3. 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

  4. WordPress Toolkit: Reseller Plans to use individual sets

    A a reseller I would like to be able to create my own specific plug-in 'sets' for my WordPress customers. Normally this should be done at this level, not by the 'top level' administrator.

    Maybe it is possible to use the same tab and visualize created sets from resellers with an icon.

  5. 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.

  8. Generate a deploy key per repo in the Git extension

    Currently, the Git extension only generates one deploy key per Plesk user (according to @PleskHelps on Twitter). Unfortunately, GitHub doesn't allow a deploy key to be used more than one time across ALL repos, meaning every single GitHub repo requires a unique deploy key. As a result, I can clone only one of the 40 some repos I would like to on my Plesk installation.

    I would like to suggest the option to have a unique deploy key generated for every single repo you want to clone. That would make the Git extension infinitely more useful for me and many…

  10. Support HPKP

    I'd like to see HPKP integrated into the SSL certificate management of Plesk. This would allow, in combination with standard Nginx/Apache config, for a strongly recommended and worthwhile security element to be added to hosted sites.

    Testing tool
    https://securityheaders.io

  11. 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 $PLESKDOMAINHTTPDOCS -not -user $PLESKDOMAINOWNER -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chown $PLESKDOMAINOWNER:psacln
    find $PLESKDOMAINHTTPDOCS -type d -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755
    find $PLESKDOMAINHTTPDOCS -type f -not -name ".pl" -not -name ".cgi" -not -name ".sh" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0644
    find $PLESKDOMAINHTTPDOCS -type f -name "

  13. Add Firewall rule to block outgoing mail for non-Postfix / non-qmail

    iptables -A OUTPUT -d 127.0.0.1 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -m owner --gid-owner postfix -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -m owner --gid-owner mailman -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -m owner --uid-owner root -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-port-unreachable

    Would be nice to add this to the Plesk Firewall Module.

    This disables malicious scripts of sending direct mail.

    Other malicious mails sent through localhost (Postfix / qmail) will…

  16. jpegoptim, optipng, gifsicle or similar

    id like to see these tools implemented into plesk. To run server wide or domain wide, and via cron if required.

    Alot of large organisations are using these tools. (facebook etc etc)

    I like to see image optimization part of plesk admin panel. It will help servers run faster and optimize web delivery.

  20. Allow multiple SSH-accounts in an abonnement

    Currently only the main user-account (=system-user) can get access via SSH. Additional users and ftp-users only have access via FTP.

    Please allow setting up additional users using SSH as well.
