  1. Move domains between subscriptions

    This is a feature that needs to be brought to the Plesk Control Panel.

    This request has been outstanding since Plesk 10:
    http://kb.parallels.com/en/113938

    This wasn't possible in Plesk 11.5.
    http://kb.parallels.com/en/121606

    It still does not appear possible in Plesk 12.

    At the very least, breaking a domain out into its own subscription would be a good first step.

    Search words:
    I cannot move domain to another subscription
    move webspaces
    move a domain within a multi-domain subscription
    multi-domain subscription
    migration manager
    transfer a domain
    separate subscription
    split subscription
    break out domain from subscription

    • Multiple backup rules or more options

      At this moment, you can set only 1 rule to make backups (daily, weekly, or monthly). My idea is to make multiple backup rules (ex. which daily backups should be deleted) or simply make more backup options.

      Ex:
      I want to make daily backup and delete every older than 2 days, except one day of the week and one day of the month.

      ex interface:
      Make [daily/weekly/monthly] backup and keep only:
      [n] daily backups (enabled only for daily backups)
      [n] weekly backups (enabled for daily and weekly backups)
      [n] monthly backups (enabled for daily, weekly and monthly backups)

      So, if…

      • Have multiple IPs in one subscription

        Make each site able to run on its own IP.

        If you would support this feature, please please tell us in the comments how you would use it - i.e. for SSL

        • 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.

          • Manage greylist from Plesk CP

            Allow management of greylist filters and configuration from the Plesk control panel instead of only from command line as is currently the case.

            • Search mail logs from Gui

              We have many support requests from our customers (non technical) to search logs and find if a message was sucessfull delivered and consume much from our support.

              If the customer could search logs from a specific sender ou destination, filtering by date, will be great for us.

              • Rename database

                Doing this by hand is very time consuming. An option for rename database would be great feature.

                • Allow SFTP for Personal FTP Repository

                  It's good that FTPS is now supported for the Personal FTP Backup Repository. But it would be even better if Backups could be transferred to another server via SSH/SFTP instead of just FTPS, for a completely encrypted connection and data transfer.

                  • add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

                    add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

                    For developers/database admins, sometimes backups are taken in different
                    formats and compression is done in different formats.

                    when compressed files other than ZIP file is uploaded for websites data
                    files, there is no way to uncompress them via PLESK, one has to go to SSH
                    and then extract to use it.

                    So compressing files/folders to multiple formats and then extraction from
                    multiple compressed formats will allow more ease of use for users where
                    they deal with no. of formats!

                    • Django/Python Support

                      Hi, I have been trying to install a django site onto my server which has plesk and it has taken me weeks and i have paid countless dollars to fix this. I believe you should offer this support or a type of application when it is installed automatically the same as if you click install wordpress you should have the option to click install "DJANGO".

                      Many Thanks

                      • 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 $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -not -user $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chown $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER:psacln
                        find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type d -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755
                        find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type f -not -name "*.pl" -not -name "*.cgi" -not -name "*.sh" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0644

                        • Allow the automatic installation of wordpress inside a service plan

                          Hi,

                          can be a very interesting feature the possibility to create a service plan that when is used he create automatically a wordpress installation and send data to the customer email.

                          Very very interesting as WP now is a really standard over internet website creation.

                          Thanks

                            Hi, To restore a single file from FTP repository, it required whole full to download and then restore required data. Which consumes lot of time. Please try to work this backup/restore operation like other backup application where we can select required data and it get easily download without time consuming.

                            Also the backup tab should give option like dayswise full, incremental backup. Start and stop backup schedule, etc...

To install some app now I should download distributive from vendor's site to my local pc, then I should upload it via FTP/FM on server. I want to upload it to server directly to save my time and nerves.

                              • Disable mail service simplified

                                There is actually no way to create "real" "Web service only" subscription. If the subscription plan is set without any mailbox the mail_service is enable on that subscription BUT not accessible in the panel. It's necessary to change the subscription settings to access the disable button or in command line by :
                                /usr/local/psa/bin/subscription --update domaine.com -mail_service false
                                Without disabling mail_service the web service will not be able to send email to subscription's domain external hosted mail address.

                                It would be great to be able to set a plan of "web only" subscription to host website when the mail are hosted…

                                • Ability to decrypt Plesk customer passwords

                                  Plesk 12 encrypts passwords in the database. You currently have a program "mail_auth_view" which decrypts the mail passwords, so please create similar programs for ftp, database and customer logins.

                                  We have our own customer control panel which uses database connections to display their passwords. This no longer works because passwords are encrypted. If customer forgets passwords, we have no choice but to login and change them all again. This is very time consuming and a waste of time, if we could simply decrypt the passwords.

                                  • Sort domains by traffic, disk usage

                                    Curently there is no way to sort domains by traffic column. Not handy at all.

                                    • disable automatic greylisting activation for new domains

                                      If i add a new domain in a subscription, greylisting is automaticly activated, just because it's enabled on the server.

                                      It would be much better if customers have to activate greylisting manually in their settings, like the spamfilter.

                                      A workaround with Event Manager is possible but a bit inconvenient.

                                      • Create only mail accounts when mail is actually enabled, instead of on domain creation

                                        As soon as any account is created in Plesk, a mail account is setup in Smartermail, used for managing the mail domain. This is one of the few minor issues for those using Plesk in a load balanced solution (which is actually remarkably possible!). It is also tricky for those running a limited smartermail license (e.g. 250 accounts, many of which are now unwanted Plesk management accounts).

                                        It should not be so difficult to setup the mail account only when mail is enabled on a domain, and have Plesk just leave the mail server alone for domains that do not…

                                        • WordPress managment. Edit login URL

                                          WordPress management is great but my security plugin lets me change the login URL from the WordPress default. Either Plesk needs to get the correct URL from the database or let the user edit the login URL
