  1. 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!

  2. 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 It is awfully outdated and extremely ugly.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

    The time has come! Plesk 12.0 preview got this function.

    If you already tried Plesk 12.0, please tell us your opinion in https://docs.google.com/forms/d/10kOuXE5uFDtMf3SfqneS_CwlAxTHYl2eSFwJ-yNLAMg/edit

    If you didn’t try Plesk 12.0 yet -
    - learn further details at Release Notes http://download1.parallels.com/Plesk/PP12/12.0/release-notes/parallels-plesk-panel-12.0-for-linux.html
    - download Plesk 12.0 and review this function in details https://sp.parallelsnetwork.com/parallels-plesk-panel-12-partner-preview/ (sign up required)
    - join the preview conversation at
    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?294313-Plesk-12-0-Preview&p=716585#post716585

    P.S.
    If you are not interested in preview and only interested in production release day, you would need to watch Parallels announcements at (http://www.parallels.com/about/subscribe/). The ones who decided to attend Parallels Summit 2014 (http://www.parallels.com/summit/2014/) will probably know the dates sooner than others and also will have a chance for more insight and talk to us directly with your questions and suggestions.

  9. Be prepared for Debian Buster

    Last time, it took the Plesk team quite a long time to support the new Debian version. As Debian Buster will probably be released in the following months, it would be very nice if a new Plesk version was available shortly after.

    Hi,
    I’m glad to inform you that Debian 10 “Buster” Support for Plesk Obsidian is now Available with Plesk Obsidian 18.0.28 update #1!
    Note: we do not consider support for any dist-upgrade scenarios for Debian 10, the best way to move from old Debian or other OS is Plesk Migrator.

    Just to remind, you always can check ETAs for new Operation Systems support in Plesk Obsidian FAQ: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/faq/#s1q6

    Full Changelog for Plesk Obsidian 18.0.28 Update 1 is here: https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/obsidian/change-log/#plesk-18028-mu1

  10. Add historical CPU and RAM usage by subscription in Plesk Repair Kit

    Currently, Plesk Repair Kit extension does monitor in real time the CPU and RAM usage per domain: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360007784053-Is-it-possible-to-monitor-CPU-Memory-like-in-Health-Monitor-per-domain-subscription-basis-

    However, it doesn't register/save and historical usage. It would be really helpful that this extension would keep a CPU and RAM usage history, a graph, a timeline, in order to plan CPU and RAM limits set by CGroups Manager.

    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.

  12. Checking Wordpress Plugins/Themes against the Wpvulndb

    The Wordpress Toolkit utilities in Onyx are awesome, but it would be pretty cool it could also check currently installed plugins/themes(versions) against the WPScan Vulnerability Database https://wpvulndb.com/ or some similar service so that known vulnerabilities could be highlighted, or automatically forced to be updated...

  13. 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

  14. 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…

  15. FileManager ability to upload file to server by link

    In filemanager we have abilities to create empty file and upload file from PC. I want to get ability to set link and upload file to server. To install some app now I should download distributive from vendor's site to my local pc, then I should upload it via FTP/FM on server. I want to upload it to server directly to save my time and nerves.

  16. Enable/disable debug in Plesk via CLI

    The suggestion is to implement CLI utilities to enable/disable Plesk debug:

    plesk debug -enable
    enabled = on
    filter.priority = 7
    show.utilexec = on
    show.util
    exec_io = on

    plesk debug -enable --sql
    The same as previous + show.sql_query = on

    plesk debug -disable

    Now it is necessary to remember panel.ini path (/usr/local/psa/admin/conf/), copy panel.ini.sample, then edit it manually every time. And the same procedure to disable it.

  17. Plesk File Browser - Change Permissions recursive

    Yes of Course: Changing file- and Folder-persmissions is possible via SSH.

    But I couldn't tell my Clients to connect via SSH and give in commands they don't know. They will mail me and tell me how bad the Service is with such use-cases.

    Also changing via FTP Client is possible, but for example FileZilla will Need a Long time for changing an complex WordPress install with some thousand files. Or even worse Typo3 with couple of ten-thousands of files.

    I think extending the Plesk File Browser with an "recursive" Checkbox is really no big deal, but really good für UX…

    Hey everyone, WordPress Toolkit v5.7 adds the ability to configure automatic updates for each individual plugin and theme on a site. This should allow you to exclude any plugins from autoupdates. Site-wide autoupdate policies were also adjusted accordingly.
