  1. Server Health: Show Apache CPU Usage per domain

    It is difficult to identify the offending website, and this would help tracking it down

    • ActiveSync support on Roundcube and Horde (Push)

      ActiveSync is a necessary tool for most businesses today as it allows them to have everything in one place and stream it automatically to every device they use. Users with mobile phones and tablets can easily sync their contacts, calendars, notes and emails via activesync and users with outlook and other mail clients can sync contacts, mail and perhaps notes.

        Hi everyone,

        We’re planning to support ActiveSync in the upcoming Premium Mail extension powered by Kolab. CardDAV and CalDAV will also be supported. We don’t have a specific ETA yet, but we expect it to be available later this year.

      • Backup into Cloud

        http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=262215

        There are quite many free and commercial cloud storages at the day where user could keep their backup. But many storages wouldn't offer FTP access. It may be helpful if Plesk could transparently upload backups into a customer's Dropbox, Amazon or Azure account.

          • Add nginx-only hostings

            I'll like to create a hosting that only use Nginx as webserver. Also I'll like to do this with Node.js, but I think it will not be approved.

              Current scope for Plesk Onyx is to enable an ability to serve all http(s) requests by Nginx only.

              Note: apache will still be installed. Switching of apache to optional component is subject for the next release.

              Update:

              The ability to turn off Apache and have content served by nginx only on a per-website basis is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.0.14 preview. We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-preview-and-feedback.337172

              How to try this feature:

              Go to any website, click Apache & nginx Settings and deselect the “Proxy mode” checkbox under nginx settings. The feature is also available in Service Plans.

              We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!

                Happy to say that you can try backup to Google Drive with Plesk Onyx 17.8 Preview (how to install https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-17-8-preview.343283/)

                To try it you should install Plesk preview build and Google Drive Backup extension (https://ext.plesk.com/packages/52fd6315-22a4-48b8-959d-b2f1fd737d11-google-drive-backup)

                Note: this is a preview build, so there will be UI and performance improvements before official release.

                • Support incremental backup for mail content

                  Nowadays, many users are using IMAP, maybe because is the default setting in many popular email clients (Mozilla Thunderbird, and I remember Mail on Windows 8.1 didn't support POP3 at all).

                  Mail content usually grow but previously stored messages doesn't change often. In Maildir format, used by Plesk, qmail and Postfix, when an user got new mails, new files with unique name are added on disk, and only some files are changed (basically, only courier-imap and dovecot caches and indexes, perhaps easy to rebuild from scratch).

                  So, please, support incremental backup for mail content too

                  • bring back "modify multiple mailbox settings"

                    as per:
                    http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?290993-missing-feature-change-multiple-email-settings

                    In 9.5.4 it was possible to select multiple mailboxes and change their settings simultaneusly.
                    This is now suposed to be done through subscription plans, but there are certain settings not contemplated.

                    For example, in a 300+ mailboxes domain I want to change each mailbox antispam setting to "move spam to spam folder" and this is not possible though the panel and I need to make a script to do it through shell.

                    I would like this feature to come back, like it was in 9.5.4

                            The new features of the WP-Toolkit are awesome. But I am missing localization. Insise the system every button and explaining texts are only in english.

                            It would be nice to provide translations (e.g. in german) as at the moment it is a mix up of translated and untranslated content inside the tool.

                                This feature will be available in the upcoming WPT release and it will cover WP updates and data sync procedure. Please note that WPT will not be creating a full instance backup by default to save on time and disk space – only the affected data will be saved so that if something goes wrong, you can roll it back via WPT itself.
