  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…

        Hi all, Thanks for your input, really appreciate this! As you know, in Plesk Onyx 17.8 we made a significant improvement that allows you to use several cloud storages or even SFTP for remote backups. In Plesk Onyx 17.9 we will continue to improve Plesk Backup Manager in general and Flexible Backup Scheduler Manager in particular.

        Based on the initial description and comments I can highlight 3 scenarios in the scope of this request:

        #1. Keep Daily & Weekly & Monthly backups at the same time: (Example: 2 weeks of daily backups + weekly backups by each Monday)

        #2. Backup to different storages (like daily to FTP and monthly to Google Drive)

        #3. Multiple Storages of the same type (like 2 different FTP servers)

        ID in our Issue Tracker: PPM-1701
        -DL

      • 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

        • 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.

                • 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!

                  • Backup and restoration

                    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...

                      • add backup password protection to Backup Manager Backups (NO..it doesn't have it at the mo)

                        This may also be a security issue.
                        Currently there are no special protection of user content in the backup. Plesk protects only its sensitive data, web content archived without any encryption.

                        If some gains ADMIN access to a wordpress/drupal/other web applications install parts of the Plesk container file system, cron jobs, etc will be compromised and would undoubtably increase exponentially the chances of the system to be exploited with virus, rootkits, malware “indirectly” affecting Plesk. (as an analogy no point to build a metal wall if the door is still glass)

                        So, in other words ... if a wordpress installation…

                          • 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…

                            • 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.

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.

                                  • 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…

                                    • Support MySQL 8

                                      I would like to see support for the upcoming MySQL 8.
                                      Currently there is no support inside plesk and using a possible workaround with docker isn't possible out of the box.

                                      MySQL Community Server 8.0.4 is already a Release Candidate.

                                      • Make the "secure your sites" button display, but be un-clickable and greyed out, SSL

                                        The Secure your sites SSL feature button should be visible, but greyed out, with a description at the bottom that says "You must have a dedicated IP to activate SSL" to prompt customers to follow the SSL setup in order and not attempt to create SSL certs without IP addresses.

                                        • Show actual database type in Plesk > Tools&Settings > Database servers

                                          Currently even if MariaDB is installed on the server, in Plesk > Tools&Settings > Database servers it is written as MySQL It would be nice to show actual database type .
