    Although the implemented solution differs from the initial demand, we are closing the request as "already available”. We have thoroughly investigated the idea to solve the redundancy issue using a Plesk cluster. Our research has proved that this solution is not in step with the times, is no longer demanded by our partners, and has its limitations. We would like to give an explanation of each point.

    More than nine years ago, when the request was created, the IT world had already begun to change. Previously, partners and customers bought or rented bare-metal servers and organized them in data centers. If the servers did not have sufficient component redundancy, there was a risk that a power supply or hard drive failure would lead to service downtime. However, a synchronized failover server could save hosting from such problems. But since then, hosting infrastructure has changed significantly. These days, public clouds are…

  4. Backup into Cloud

    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=262215

    There are quite many free and commercial cloud storages at the day where user could keep their backup. But many storages wouldn't offer FTP access. It may be helpful if Plesk could transparently upload backups into a customer's Dropbox, Amazon or Azure account.

  5. Make subdomain email addresses possible without new subscription

    It's incredibly annoying that you have to setup a subscription solely for each subdomain that you want to create email addresses for. Please fix this.

    This functionality is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.9 Preview 7 (https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/onyx/change-log/#contents-179-preview7). We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-17-9-preview.348675/page-2#post-855221

    We would appreciate hearing your feedback on the implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!

    P.S. Do not use the Preview build in production environments. The Preview build is for evaluation and early testing purposes only.

  6. Possibility to activate DKIM and DomainKey without active local DNS

    Please make possible generating and activating DKIM/DomainKey without having active local DNS server. Consider following situation:

    You have a website that use as sender your domain when sending email and you are want to follow best practices in order to reach inbox, but this domain uses another server for DNS (cloudflare for example, godday, etc.). In this case you need to have DKIM/DomainKey signed mails without the need to activate local DNS server. Also mail management could be set off for that domain, but mails still should be able to be signed.

    I believe that this scenrario is real and…

  7. Webmail - Enable users to edit out of office (auto-response) message in webmail directly

    I'm not sure if any webmail option right now allows the email user to update their out of office / auto response message. I think the email user has to login to Plesk to be able to edit that right now (which is annoying).

    Anyone have any suggestion on this?

  8. Add mcrypt module to Plesk PHP 7.2 and newer

    Add mcrypt module to Plesk PHP 7.2 and newer.
    For previous PHP versions it's included out of the box.

    Mcrypt 1.0.2 natively supports PHP 7.2+ (https://pecl.php.net/package/mcrypt/1.0.2)

    It's, for example, required by Prestashop 1.7.x, which is quite popular among Plesk users.

    Since Plesk Obsidian 18.0.49, published December 20th, 2022, the PHP configuration page that can be reached for every PHP version installed on the server through Tools & Settings > General Settings > PHP Settings has a new feature: The PECL installer! You can now install PECL extensions for PHP through that installer. As this new option became available, it is no longer necessary to provide native support for various kinds of extensions such as mcrypt.

  9. Add PHP Composer to chrooted

    Please add PHP Composer to chrooted Environments.
    Many Customers Need PHP Composer to install various scripts, cms Systems and libaries.

    A current big Problem is the new typo-neos System - you must use Composer to install at sources correctly

    A other Problem are PHP API's and Libaries like Payment Companies like PAYMILL etc..

    PHP Composer has been available as part of the Plesk core product since September 2019 and can be used from within subscriptions. Since then it was continuously improved. It can also be used on the console as described in https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001707605-How-to-run-Composer-with-Plesk-PHP. A PHP version on the console can be set as default following the guide in https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003766853-How-to-configure-a-specific-command-line-PHP-version-for-an-SSH-user-on-a-Plesk-for-Linux-server-


    If you believe that specific needs are not covered by all these capabilities, please post a new Uservoice feature request and describe in detail what you need in addition to the existing solution and how that makes your work easier for you.

  11. Add "Move to spam folder" option in Windows (currently available in Linux)

    There is an spam filtering option to "Move to spam folder XXXX" on Linux, but not on Windows (Plesk 11+).

    Unfortunately, horde doesn't work so well and every time when a message with broken header arrives, horde displays "Invalid Address" and no subject to all inbox messages. The described fix in https://kb.plesk.com/en/121175 doesn't work in this cases, forcing us to find the broken message manually (or scripting something to do the dirty job).

    This feature should exists in Windows env as in Linux.

  13. Allow non-standard FTP port to be used for backup to FTP Repository.

    Currently only the default FTP port (21) is allowed for backup to FTP repository. Other ports are simply not working and produce error messages. However port 21 is not secure so I always use alternate ports for my FTP servers like 2121. I am not the only one, see;
    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?258384-Plesk-backup-to-FTP-Repository-on-custom-port-not-working&p=698712#post698712

    I think we all would really appreciate if it would be possible to use other FTP ports than just 21.

  15. mod_ruid2 /mpm-itk

    Running PHP under "apache" user is quite troublesome because of permanent file ownership problems - FTP user cannot access files saved by Apache, Apache cannot access files just uploaded by FTP user, etc.

    Plesk already supports FastCGI as a kind of a solution, but maybe mod_ruid2/mpm-itk would be better option?

  17. Mail-Only Plesk server

    Like DNS only c* servers, Plesk can provide a Mail-Only - Plesk Server. This will help all those who like to distribute server services' load across multiple servers. I'm aware that one can simply install the whole plesk in a separate server and run just mail service alone.

    This feature request has had a lot of attention from us for a long while. It's been going on and off with good reasons for declining and some reasons to keep it open. However, we see a very limited number of votes through all the years that this topic has been on, even though we had merged similar requests into it to accumulate more votes.


    There are still no plans to have a "mail-only" license type, and the functionality can very easily be achieved already by simply spinning up a separate Plesk and only using mail on it, but no websites. 


    Summing all the pros and cons up and seeing the low number of interest in this feature through the years, at this time it appears best and most transparent to users to decline the request as "already available" - because as a matter of fact: Users can indeed only…

    Autodiscover for iOS and Android has been available for a long while. Please see https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015529259 for details. It can be turned on in "E-Mail Settings" of a domain. Please see https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360009747280 for more on that. 

    When autodiscover is switched on, the (i) icon in the rightmost column of the mailbox list includes additional assistance for mail configuration on different operating systems and applications, such as a QR code for iOS devices.

    Please let us know in the comments if you are missing anything from these functions.
