  1. Enhanced VPN support

    Since VPN connection are more and more common, and mobile devices used to connect to monitor servers, there is a need for an enhancement on the old VPN Add-on on plesk (linux).
    Currently the IOS and Android OpenVPN client does not support secret — Static key encryption mode (non-TLS) is not supported.
    from https://docs.openvpn.net/docs/openvpn-connect/openvpn-connect-ios-faq.html
    Which is the only way to use the Plesk VPN connection because it does not support certificates.
    There is a lot of literature on troubles with VPN on mobile, but basically, all of them are due to old style, unsecured way to connect to VPN.

  3. Fully Customizable Autodiscover Settings

    Could you please allow some (or all) of the new Obsidian Autodiscover settings to be customizable at a Subscription or Domain level? Here is a list of things we need:

    1) Specify POP or IMAP or BOTH incoming server types.
    2) Specify custom domain prefixes for incoming and outgoing servers. (ie: mail.domain.ext or smtp.domain.ext or etc, etc...)
    3) Specify custom port numbers for both incoming and outgoing servers. (so we may specify exactly what kind of security is enabled or not)
    4) Any other settings that can be customized but are of lesser importance.

    Please, if you are concerned, allow…

  4. Domains by renewal date

    It would be very nice to be able to sort domains by renewal date.
    In previous versions there was this very useful option.

  6. Don't send Auto-Reply when message detected as spam

    Don't send Auto-Reply when message detected as spam

    When a mail account has Auto-Reply and Spamassassin enabled, the Auto-Reply function should read the x-spam header and, if the incoming message was found to be spam, the automatic response should not be sent.

    At the moment I often see Automatic replies stuck in the outgoing mail queue because they're being sent to spammers. This is silly!

  8. 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 "

  9. Interface that show progress process before download

    Many customers can not wait and press the download button too often. That generates to many big TEMP files in the /tmp folder.

  11. Setting alternate directory path location of the vhost per Domain or service packet

    At the moment it is not possible to change or choose the vhost path for a domain. Every Domain is installed in the standard vhost path, at example /var/www/vhosts
    If someone has a Server with attached fast and slow storage or big and small storage, it should be possible for the administrator to choose between them when installing a new Domain. It could be possible to give a customer service packages with faster storage for mission critical domains or giving him a lot of space for another domain located on disk drives mounted to another location.

    At the moment you can change default vhosts location in Plesk using the command-line utility transvhosts.pl
    Just check available options with

    plesk bin transvhosts.pl —help

    Changing vhosts directory location for part of domains is impossible now.

    Anyway thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.

    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

  12. Add two score thresholds to spamassassin

    If the spam score is above the first threshhold, flag the message as spam or deliver it to Spam folder;

    Reject it immediately (preferably during the SMTP session) or just discard if the score is above the second, higher threshold.

    This way the customer would have more control over the anti-spam system, allowing much less true spam mail to enter the mailbox.

  14. download subscriptions, customers, domains, email to csv (excel)

    On any given Plesk screen where there is a list of items like domains or email addresses add a Download as CSV button. This makes comparing items for discrepancy easier. I have seen several Cpanel versions that have this ability.

  16. subscription wide mailbox size

    For example(now) a subscription has:
    - 10 Mailboxes
    - Maximum mailbox size of 100MB
    So the maximum disk usage would be 1GB. but there are 2 LIMITATIONS here. first the client can't make more then 10 mailboxes.
    Second the maximum size of an mailbox is 100MB. You can make them smaller but that is useless.

    a subscription wide mailbox size can remove these restrictions and so greatly increase the flexibility for the client. For example the subscription wide mailbox size of 1GB and maximum of 5(or unlimited) mailboxes.

    the client wants:
    info@domain.tld: 600MB(is logic since an info@domain is much…

  18. 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.

  19. Backup Manager: Multiple FTP (or cloud service) Storages

  20. Force password reset email users

    It would be VERY helpful in a security sense to force a password change whom use emails services (via roundcube). So if I have 100 users who do not access the panel, but simply have email, they would be forced to change passwords every 30 days?
