  1. 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

  2. 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

  3. Add support for more DBs

    When I first saw the option of create DBs, I thought it was something like I'm suggesting. MongoDB, MariaDB, CouchDB, etc, etc. This will be super cool. :)

  5. 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.

  6. Rename database

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. PHP GD webp support

    The version of GD provided with Plesk PHP packages does not have support for webp enabled by default. Almost all browsers now support this format.

  10. 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...

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. Interface that show progress process before download

    Many customers can not wait and press the download button too often. That generates to many big TEMP files in the /tmp folder.

  14. 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.

  16. FileManager ability to upload file to server by link

    In filemanager we have abilities to create empty file and upload file from PC. I want to get ability to set link and upload file to server. 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.

  17. 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…

  19. 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 .

  20. Custom Email Server Help Tips

    The settings for mail servers have a help tip in the email addresses management page, and in the users' Plesk Account pages.

    If a Plesk server is set up strictly as a mail server, and has DNS handled remotely, the settings in the Help Tips can be incorrect.

    Currently the tips only show the server as the root domain even if the mail server's actual DNS points (as an example) mail.domain.tld to the server, requiring the settings to include the subdomain.

    If I add the domain as "subdomain.domain.tld" in settings, then the server tips are correct but the email addresses…
