  4. Migrate/move scheduled task with Plesk windows to a different subscription

    I would like to suggest the feature move scheduled task created under a subscription level to another subscription.

    With Linux, it's possible to modify /var/spool/cron/crontabs but windows such changes it not possible.

    Thank you.

  5. For Plesk Email Security it would be helpful if the settings for all email addresses of a domain could be changed at once.

    Some domains are managed by their owner, some domains by a administrator. Not for all domains it is possible to activate or deactivate some features, as example tagging or rejecting of spam. So I use as default a spam tagging but have to change to reject spam per domain.

  6. Stop sending the user back to the root path in file manager after clicking on refresh

    In the file manager, when I press the refresh button of my browser, plesk changes the path to the root path of domain rather than refreshing the actual folder path.

    For example:
    I have a domain called tomydna
    It is a wordpress installation
    So, sometimes, I want to go to wp-content/cache/ to see if cache files and folders are created. Sometimes, I must click on refresh button to see if the server just created new files or new folders.
    Unfortunately, when I press the refresh button of my browser there is an unexpected behavior, Plesk sends me back to the…

  7. Check if Google Authenticator is enabled for a customer

    Would be useful to check from CLI the status of the Google Authenticator extension for a specific customer.
    For example plesk bin extension --status google-authenticator (customer_name).

  8. Serverwide scheduled backups -> UI to select what is contained

    I'd really like to have a UI to select what is contained in a serverwide scheduled backup.
    We have a couple of domains where people dump photos and videos for further processing, amounting to 100s of GBs, and we don't need backups of those.
    The UI you got for the restore dialog would be just fine.
    I think it makes more sense to select what is contained, than what to exclude.

  9. Add option to select default TLD for staging

    Currently, WP Toolkit offers possibility to add a subdomain prefix for staging.

    So, considering the main domain is "domain.tld", WP toolkit offers "staging.domain.tld" as an option.

    We use a slightly different scheme, and it our setup our staging will looks like "domain.review" (note "review" instead of tld).

    It will be nice to specify default staging tld (as it currently implemented for "staging" subdomain) and have possibility to use such scheme of the staging (instead of selecting the domain from the list manually)

  11. Enabling anonymous Git read access for a repository

    A developer which has pushed his code to his git repository in plesk (through Local repository on your workstation funcion) is only accesible through authentication. That's OK.

    The developer is ready to make his code publicly available.
    Unfortunately that is not possible but it would be a nice feature to have.

    Maybe not to use the same private repository, but likely in a way to clone it and make it anonymous available only with read acces through http(s) , ex. https://<url>/example.git

  12. Add in Plesk Panel an option to automatic assign an IP Address for Mail Service for new Domains

    Two IP Addresses added in IP Address pool for Plesk.

    Having one IP Address for the new Domain and a different one for Outgoing mail.

    Automatically assign the second ip for Mail Service without the need to do it via CLI command.

    In this case the first IP (Domain IP) is using he HELO and then second IP (Service Mail Outgoing IP) is just to send emails.

    Actually we have dropped this functionality from the Dynamic list due to low usage. It still could be found on the Active list.
    But 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.

  16. Mailman for Plesk - allow use together with delimiter used in postfix main.cf

    If you have configured additional delimiters in postfix (/etc/postfix/main.cf) it is not possible to successfully deliver a mail to a mailing list - if that mailing list address contains also one of the symbols configured as delimiter.

    The solution is very simple and could be a very generic change in plesk standard config:

    In /etc/postfix/master.cf just change the config string for mailman in the end of line from ${nexthop} ${user} ${recipient}
    to:
    ${nexthop} ${mailbox}
    This will parse all necessary parameters before the @.

    Taken from: http://www.postfix.org/pipe.8.html

  19. A utility to be able to see FTP and Email passwords as the ADMIN

    AS the admin we manage 100's of websites. Clients lose their FTP and email passwords on a regular basis. It would be nice to have a secure Admin Only Access to look up passwords for different accounts.

    Power-Toys used to do this clean and quickly but they no longer support later versions of Plesk so useless and leaves us as the Host lost on how to help our hosting clients properly.

    We use a managed VPS for our hosting and don't have Shell Access
