  1. 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.

        Everyone, thank you for the feedback, it’s been quite enlightening. We’d like to understand the root cause behind your requests to change the WP installation URL and we’d appreciate if you could answer our questions below:

        1. Do you need this to support some sort of staging scenario, where you’re synchronizing changes between “staging” and “production” instances?

        2. Do you develop WP websites in a temporary folder not easily accessible from outside and then, as soon as you consider the website to be done, you move it to the “final” (production) folder?

        3. Is there a scenario different from #1 and #2 above that requires moving WP to a different directory after the installation, and if so, could you describe the business scenario?

        Since Uservoice is not particularly well-suited to have these discussions, we suggest all interested parties to visit the following thread on our forum and participate in the…

        • Add an option to lock/freeze a website

          Hi,

          some Hosts (e.g. Strato) use a functionality to completely lock a site. This is very useful for customers that dont want to do any changes to their website anymore but use an old version of a cms and forget/dont want to upgrade.

          Of course there should be a warning about the consequences like non working file caching etc.

          • Prevent users from installing SSL certificates

            As reseller (or administrator) we should be able to prevent customers installing a selfsigned or 3rd party bought SSL certificate themselves.

            It's not possible to disable the 'SSL support' check box within the
            'Service Plans' menu section 'Hosting Parameters' because as Administrator we install customer SSL certificates by API. Disabling 'SSL support' will also disable installing SSL certificates by API.

            • WHMCS Email Templates

              OK ... here are the facts.

              Plesk is getting better with great features.

              WHMCS is probably the billing system that most use since it is affordable and easy to work with.

              Ergo ... Plesk need to provide email templates on WHMCS that we can use.

              Not sure why you have until, unable to work with WHMCS team to create a comprehensive email templates like cPanel's.

              You understand the flow; Team WHMCS understands its billing system.

              These are simple things you can do to remove this idea that Plesk is difficult to use which we hear from developers and businesses here.

                  • Support for modern web statistics programs such as GoAccess

                    It would be nice if https://goaccess.io/ was supported for statistics.

                    - Written in C, so faster than a perl script such as awstats.
                    - Can be used in the traditional way to generate static HTML statistics pages from log files.But a more advanced integration could also provide real-time statistics.

                      Currently adding a node fails if we haven't installed the DNS component. We plan to use Plesk Multi-Server with external DNS servers.

                      • Enable additional Schedule Backup with or without Full Backup

                        Enable additional Schedule Backup and provide an option to disable the obligation to make a Full Backup (letting user the option to create additional Incremental Backups, without messing things like repeated Full Backups). This already happends if the Admin and Client both setup Backups, it create multiple Full Backups which is not necessary since Admin Backups are create in behalf user.

                          In fact, you placed multiple requests inside this one. Let’s go with each of them one by one:

                          1. Additional schedule backup: there is request for this feature https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/3703858-multiple-backup-rules-or-more-options. Since it took just lots of votes, we are planning its implementation now.

                          2. Disable full backup and collect incremental parts only. This is possible even now. Customer (or admin) can choose yearly backup with daily or weekly increments. This way there will be single full backup done once a year (first time) and all other daily/weekly backups will be just increments. Please update what you think about such scenario and why it might do not work for you.

                          3. In that feature that I mentioned – about adding more scheduled backups – there also will be possibility for admin to watch and manage all scheduled customer’s backups – as one list. There also will be additional leverages, buttons and…

                        • Enable email subject and keywords to be blocked in spamfilter

                          Allow users and admin to select subject lines and keywords as well as keywords in the email body to be added to the spamfilter blacklist.

                          Currently spammers are just changing domains and sending the same email templates.

                            • API RPC: Authentication with login/password, session token

                              We would like to have an option to authenticate users (login/password) via API RPC, so we can send login/password to the API and get response, if these credentials are correct.

                              Maybe it's also possible to return a token we can use to login the user similar to the existing server/create_session?

                              You could just extend this operator to additionally check a password before generating the session token.

                                As your Upload sits now it is too cumbersome to create folders/sub-folders before I can upload files. Too much typing on users' part. Automate FTP so it will create the whole file tree just like FileZilla

                                  Why FileZilla should be on Plesk site? Why you can’t download it from their official site? Besides FileZilla there are many other ways of working with Plesk FTP/ We can’t put all these methods on Plesk official site. It is Plesk site but not FileZilla site.
                                  Please clarify your feature request in more detail? What is usage scenario and expected benefits?
                                  Thanks.

                                  Let's face it, any host doing things right will have plain FTP disabled. Therefore the Website Importer will almost always fail. It absolutely has to be able to connect over FTPES/FTPS. Is this even on the roadmap? It's a great feature, if only it could work.

                                    To configure the allowed FTP connections, go to Tools & Settings > Security Policy. We recommend that you only allow FTPS connections. As result – no mentioned problem with plain FTP.
                                    Or do you mean something else? If so, what is your feature request?

                                      • Allow the Plesk admin to modify the "Account Activation" notification that is sent when creating a new user

                                        Allow the Plesk administrator to modify the "Account Activation" notification email that is sent when a new user is created.

                                        Currently there is no way to change this in Tools & Settings > Notifications.

                                        • Bundle with Microsoft® ODBC Driver 11 for SQL Server® - Windows

                                          Without this component on Windows servers, it is impossible to connect to a MSSQL database from PHP. The Plesk Installer should allow the installation of such component, or even install it automatically when MS SQL Server Express is installed.
