  1. 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:

    This feature has not gotten many votes during the past five years. Technically, a graceful restart of Apache is unnoticeable for the user as not service interruption occurs. Further, Apaches model loads all configuration data into memory upon start or reload. The Odin link provided in the comments does not lead to a more details explanation of the feature request. And finally, in the Nginx/Apache combination with an increasing number of users considering Nginx-only hosting a change in the Apache worker process won't be sufficient.

    Please provide a sound explanation why a graceful restart of web servers is insufficient for adding or modifying web server configuration.

  2. Customizable Plesk notification email address

    Plesk has the ability to send notifications. However, with the latest version (v18.0.32) these are sent to my "External email address" of the admin user. But since I as admin user enter my Apple iCloud email "name@icloud.com" there, it is used as both sender and recipient and all notification emails end up in the spam folder of my iCloud mail.
    It would be really great if you could separate the administrator email from the notification email address and change it specifically so that email notifications are sent from "Plesk@domain.tld" to the external administrator email "name@icloud.com

    As https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/16956373-set-a-senders-email-address-for-plesk-notification was resolved and the sender address of notifications is now customizable we are wondering whether the issue described in this feature request cannot also be considered solved. The issue here was described as sender and recipient being the same address so that notifications are evaluated as "spam" at the recipient's mailbox. However, now that the sender address can be customized, this could easily be circumvented. 


    Further, the recipient address of notifications can be freely set in the notifications page. 


    Please comment if and why this feature request is still actual.

  3. DNS Authorisation for Let's Encrypt

    Described in https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-acme-acme-06#section-8.4

    The problems with mail/webmail/lists subdomains could be obsolete, because a acmechallenge.lists.domain.tld txt record could be challenged.
    So no problems with webroots etc.

  4. Oracle Linux 8 Support - CentOS 8 is dead

    Hello,
    is there any chance to give Oracle Linux to became official supported?
    Since the bad news about CentOS 8 EoL on 31.December 2021.
    The best option now is Oracle Linux (100% binary compatible OS)

    Best Regards

    By the end of 2022 the market share of Oracle Linux was only half of the next up competitor Alma and less than 1/10 of RHEL, Rocky and Alma combined. For that reason, we'd love to hear from you why you believe that Oracle Linux will be the next big player despite the low market share. 


    For example do you see specific technical reasons why Oracle Linux should be preferred over development for the much more popular platforms? E.g. ARM support and do you actually need it? Are there other aspects that can give good reasons to consider this OS over others?


    Please let us know in the comments.

    This feature request has been reviewed and we are asking WHY it is important to import your own keys? After all, these are just some keys that only have one requirement: They must match what is configured in DNS. What is the advantage of using some specific, pre-configured key over just letting the server generate and maintain the key? Isn't that much easier for a user?

    Please give us good reasons why you need own keys in your comments so that we understand this better and can think of a suitable solution.

    This feature request only received 12 votes over the course of 6 years. We have reviewed the request and would like to ask you why you believe that vsftpd brings you advantages over the existing solutions (like ProFTPD). The existing FTP server has proven to be great for millions of websites through all the years. Please give us some good arguments why vsftpd would be even better.

  7. Add IgnoreHosts options to Plesk`s DMARC implementation

    Currently it is possible to whitelist only domain with IgnoreMailFrom parameter. However there could be false-positive DMARC failures (in case sender's strict policy and mail going throughout relay) due to which it could be useful to have option to whitelist specific network. It would be nice having this option available

    During research, we have found that the request is about passing emails via intermediate mail gateway (which works as an anti-spam solution) and the idea of the request is do not check SPF for these emails on Plesk side.

    In Plesk, there is already exist a solution for that: need to use "SPF Local rules" setting to configure an SPF record which will be used by Plesk to validate emails (including emails from an intermediate anti-spam solution). See KB article for mode details (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360022753174) and Plesk documentation.

    If it does not solve the issue on you Plesk environment and you still need the "IgnoreHost" option, let us know more details about you case for that in comments below.

    We have reviewed the feature request and have not yet understood what benefit limiting backup sets by the number could have? Why is that necessary? Disk space is normally billed by volume, not by the number of files in the space, so we'd love to hear what advantage you are seeing when you can limit the number of files in a backup space?

  9. Add support SFTP and FTPS protocol for migration

    We are only able to use a FTP connection to migrate a website. It would be a nice add to be able to use SFTP and FTPS to connect to the old server,

    This feature request has been reviewed, but we are not seeing any reason why someone would want to use mod_php over existing PHP handler solutions. If you are after speed, why not use Nginx-only hosting along with the Plesk "PHP-FPM via Nginx" PHP handlers that are known to deliver top-notch speed for websites?

    Please tell us more in your comments why you believe you need the Apache integration of PHP. What benefits do you expect?

    This feature request has been reviewed and despite the explanation we are having difficulties understanding what exactly is meant. Is this about sending mails from the server or is this about receiving mails that are addressed to a mailbox on the server? Could you please describe this in more detail who is sender, who is recipient and what you would like to exclude from happening and why?

    In all previous Plesk versions and also the latest, the mail server can be addressed by using the host name. That is the same across all domains and subscriptions. You can also have a fully functional SSL/TLS configuration for the mail server through the Tools & Settings page.


    Could you please explain what the difference of this feature request is to simply using the host name as mail server?

  16. Backup restoration - all databases of a subscription affected

    Hello,

    Would be a good UX/UI improvement to get informed that ALL databases of all domains under the subscription would be restored in case the subscription restored from the backup. (all configuration and content)

    When a restore of "all configuration and content" is requested, what is the advantage of again confirming that all databases were included when the restore is completed? If it is "all configuration and content" why would someone think that it is not all configuration and content, e.g. only a partial restore?

  18. Disable docker exposed ports in firewall

    It should be possible to block the port exposing in global nets from docker containers within the firewall.
    It's a massive security lack! Most applications are run behind a 'docker proxy rule', so there's no need to expose the port to the whole internet.
    Docker's modifying the firewall by itself, so this has to be disabled.

  19. Improve support for third-party app extensions (particularly WordPress)

    At the moment, many third-party app extensions for apps in Plesk like WordPress are not supported without a significant amount of server dependencies being installed. At present, this is not possible to do from within Plesk and requires direct access to server shell and a significant amount of technical skill. It would be great if Plesk incorporated the ability to install server dependencies without needing to use the server shell.

    Hi Paul,

    with the built-in Plesk WP Toolkit installing, maintaining and using Wordpress works like a charm. Have you already tried it? 

    Plesk Obsidian 18.0.49 and newer also feature a PECL installer where you can add PHP extensions from within the graphical user interface, saving the hassle to edit configurations on the system level.

    Please describe in more detail what is still missing so that your idea gets the required attention.
