  1. Allow Let's Encrypt to validate over 80 or 443 (not just 80)

    We're very excited to see Let's Encrypt in Plesk 17, it makes secure sites much, much easier. However, port 80 is not open on a number of our servers for security reasons and it would appear the Plesk coding for the API to Let's Encrypt forces the use of port 80. Let's Encrypt supports validation of domains over 80 OR 443, but Plesk is requiring 80. The only workaround is to open 80 to the world so it can be validated since Let's Encrypt does supply a list of public IP's their traffic could source from.

  3. 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!!!

  9. Feature in Plesk UI to see File Manager Logs (Create/Remove Directories or Files)

    Currently, logs about create/Remove Directories or Files are only stored in panel.log with debug enabled. A feature for it will be appreciated in order to avoid enable debug into the server and increase server process.

  11. Overuse Policy: Overuse is not allowed + Grace Period

    Right now there are 3 options:


    • Overuse is not allowed (this is preferred but will disable customers site once limit is hit)

    • Overuse of disk space and traffic is allowed

    • Overuse is allowed (not recommended)

    Scenario:

    A resellers Overuse Policy is set to:
    Overuse is not allowed

    That reseller has his warning set to 90% of his 10GB package.
    But on 1 day, one of his customers uploads 2GB.

    Effect: His total package has 12GB and the nightly run will disable his package, without warning.

    Result: The reseller is angry because all of his customers are offline,
    only because one…

  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. Add new site or modify existing site without Apache restart /graceful restart

    For example, Odin uses a system where all the website information is stored inside a NoSQL database, and apache just reads this data with a special module:

  19. 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.

  20. Exclude domains from backup in UI

    Add an option to exclude domains / clients / resellers from a backup to the Plesk user interface.
