Hide/Show Database Servers for clients
Administrator should have the possibility to make Database Servers hidden from Clients.
My scenario is:
1 or more servers that are intended for Web only (Nginx+Apache+PHP/Ruby/Python)
2 or more servers for Databases (MySQL / could be PostgreSQL also)
In the Database Servers, the administrators should be able to select visible servers for clients.
Why? Ideal is to hide the localhost server when only external are to be used. Some DB servers may get to full and you want the clients to select only from lower used ones. You have demands from different clients to support older versions of MySQL for some legacy apps.
This concept is used by Rackspace for its Sites service (maybe overs) and it's a proven concept for stability and easing some administration stuff on long term (like doing a major upgrade - distribution upgrade or Plesk upgrade etc.)
Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.
Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
Hello, UP ?
