  1. Outgoing Mail Control collect sample of offending emails

    When Outgoing Mail Control detects a user abusing the sending limits, it would be helpful for the emails that are sent beyond the limit to be sampled in some way: To: From: Subject: Headers, possibly the first line of the email, origination ip address of the offending email.

    This information can help the admin decide if it was the user just sending to many emails or if the email has been compromised and needs to be addressed.

    As a similar but different idea, emails beyond the limit could be cached for a short time to allow the administrator to decide…

  2. 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…

  5. 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

  8. Nginx Cache purge

    Please, consider to implement some sort of cache purge functionality available from Plesk web interface, because if cache TTL gets extended to match Site needs, it gets complicated, i.e. need to go over Linux Terminal to purge it. A Wordpress integration would be just super fantastic, but I understand, it is not realistic to wish it.
    Thank you!

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. The possibility to delete a Domain, without deleting the Website (Content).

    am not understand, when i want to move a Domain, the system will delete all the content. The choice to leave the content, I think is essential. This has to be a must!!!

  17. Ability to pull Docker container private Docker repository on Docker Hub

    Currently, it is not possible to authenticate on https://hub.docker.com/ to use the container located in private repository.
    The w/a is to make the image public, download it and make it private again.

  18. Add/remove Fail2ban for additional Administrator accounts

    I open this again because the original from "anonymous" is closed.

    When creating an additional admin user it is not possible to add or remove Fail2ban to the option of that user.

    Is it possible to add such functionality in Plesk from the restricted mode?

    So, as @IgorG need more info, here is it:
    The guy are refering that when you create a new plesk admin account, and you check the mark to be "Enabled Restricted Mode" this account cannot see nothing about Fail2Ban. So, when you go to yourserver:8443/admin/server/admin-plan you cannot choose to enable "Fail2Ban" management. So, these restricted…

    Please write exact scenarios of why do you want to hide this functionality in Plesk.

    Do you want to disable File Manager on a server or you would like to disable File Manager for particular customers only? And why?

    Your descriptions will help us to properly estimate if this idea is worth to be implemented or not.

  20. 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…
