Allow customers/resellers to manage additional Apache and nginx directives
Currently, management of additional Apache/nginx directives is available for Plesk Administrators only.
With Apache, it is possible for users to add custom directives via .htaccess file.
However, when running a Plesk server with nginx only hosting and a large number of customers, it takes a lot if time to configure nginx directives manually for each.
It is clear that additional Apache/nginx directives fields are hidden from Plesk users for security reasons, but it would be great to have an ability to enable this feature at your own risk.
Previous same suggestions that have been marked as "declined":
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.
Current requirement to involve Admin is very clunky. This seems a fundamental need
I would appreciate that option!

I'm baffled why a simple thing like this has not been implemented. For EVERY domain I create as a reseller, I've got to contact the hosting provider to sort nginx directives. Please relieve customers and server admins. At least make this available for reseller accounts.

I can't see any reason why Nginx should not have the same rights as Apache regarding application of rewrite rules. The risk is there for Apache with the .htaccess - why should nginx not the same rights and the feature to define rewrite rules at least?
I understand, the ability to add directives might not be enabled per default to mitigate miss configurations and support efforts. However, it should be easy to make this an optional feature which could be enabled for dedicated customers on demand, might be with at disclamer 'at your own risk' etc.

It's not important, it's fundamental, crucial...
I cant belive I migrate to Plesk 18 and Nginx fields are hidden now under Apache setiings! This is for me very bad new version policy. + hotlinking bug... seems it is not tested enough
Currently, the customer is unable to manage "Additional nginx directives" as described here https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000065889
However, at the same time, he can disable Apache by disabling "Proxy mode".
So, it would be nice if the customer will have the ability to manage nginx settings for his domain on his own without contacting Plesk admin
Also, I can see the existing request which was declined https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/34285378--additional-apache-nginx-directives-avaliable-f
wtf you need more informations for? Read title and Description.
Thats exactly what i think is totally needed.....
Currently only admin can manage these directives, that leads to additional work for me as an administrator. I want to be able customer to manage additional Apache/Nginx directives by themselves, for example configure rewrite rules.
"Additional Apache directives" should be made available as an option for customers. For example I want my customers to be able to use custom directives.
