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.
The feature request in our backlog for the next release.
Is it available in Plesk Obsidian GA 18.0.20?
Not mentioned here:
I just updated obsidian and it still doesn't include it !!!!
J'attends avec impatience le WEBP pour le plesk en PHP 5.6 et PHP 7
A quand cette mise à jour ???
I look forward to the WEBP for the plesk in PHP 5.6 and PHP 7
When will this update ???
I spoke with someone at Plesk (tech support) who forwarded our concerns onto their dev team. I received this response:
"I got word from the developers. WebP support is on our roadmap, we do plan to add its support to Obsidian. Currently, we are focusing on finishing Obsidian itself and after it's global release, maybe 1-2 months after, WebP support is planned to be added."
We are using Onyx so I requested more information about that, but haven't heard back yet. I'm assuming it won't be added to that version.
It's easy enough to recompile from the command line, so we'll have to stick with that for now.
No guide for Debian is found.
We are forced to wait for your news.
Any updates on this please. We are in September now and still waiting to get an ETA.
If you can't wait for them to include the flag on install - Recompile the module as outlined here: https://talk.plesk.com/resources/how-to-compile-php-gd-so-module-with-webp-support.4/
The guide is for 7.1.11, if you have a different version just replace it with your version number, eg: 7.2.21, it's easy.

Let's face it, this feature will never see the day of light, at least not in the desirable amount of time. The handling and most of all the response time to this request has clearly shown a lack of support.
