Synchronize Plesk Servers (Failover)
Keep two (or more) Plesk servers in sync for a failover scenario.
Migration Manager only allows manual "sync"
Hello! Please take a few moments to answer several questions about Failover. This will not take long!
please implement it!
This thread has been open for just about 7 years. Plesk is one of the top control panels in the web industry. What I absolutely do NOT understand is, why is this discussion still open for discussion and not implemented, and why would it be so difficult if another control panel (Interworx) can do it (which I am quite sure has a much smaller team) and has been doing it for quite some time.
Plesk should allow us to focus on productivity and growing our business without fear or concerns of DOWNTIME because we do not have a failsafe/failover configuration.
Quite a bit disappointed in Plesk that we're still actually talking about this in March 2020, even after this suggestion being a top in suggestions.
@anon, I know they acquired the company. What I wanted to say is not worth migrating from cPanel to Plesk.
@JackLinkers well cPanel or Plesk does not matter as its the same head to where the money flows...
After reading :
I was confident Plesk was HA compatible, but discovered it's NOT among other MUST HAVE features in modern web, such as .webp support in PHP GD...
Plesk has a lot of interesting features, but most important are missing...
Well, bye bye Plesk, I'm sticking with cPanel
I just talked about small numbers of site (30 domains), but most of them have multiple servers, each having 200s+ sites.
I'm hosting 200+ domains on ISPConfig with a cluser & master/***** setup for the best redundancy and HA.
I came to Plesk again (Yes changed it many times due to lack of such features), but still those features are missing.
We want to use Plesk, we want to stick with you, we trust you. But please do something to surprise us.
It's not just about voting (where its the most voted feature), don't you think HA "High Availability" matters?
We use Plesk to host multiple sites more than 30 at least, every single site is important. If something happens to one Plesk node, then it will bring down all 30 sites.
And it's not 2010, it's 2020, people will move to other hosting companies in a matter of minutes. Because they have those essential features built-in, even without any public voting or UserVoice.
They built such features because they are required by current market situations, by current application needs.
Its 2020, and you guys have not started working on this feature yet or even updated the UserVoice channel recently.
Here @Ralph has moved from Plesk to ISPConfig, I came here again in Obsidian from ISPConfig, Where I miss such must-have features in a paid product. Things which are available in free open source projects from years, is still not available in a product like Plesk? Really?
Dear @Plesk, you should change your internal development rules (whatever you call it), if that is making the overall process slow.
It's not only ISPConfig but many other platforms have more essential features then Plesk... CyberPanel (from LiteSpeed) is also an evolving product which such features.
Kindly please have a look at those control panels, and see which features should be available in Plesk as per the 2020 era.
Wohooo, 1k votes. That should make us happy, cause now they will act.....or.....

I ask the support about the two most voted request and the guy sad that he "pointed out the attention of our developers on it". As you see in the attached image.
This have been requested over a 6 years time already. one wonder if this thread is monitored at all. Plesk, do you hear us?
I Follow this feature suggestion for a while too now (thanks to you) and have read your comment when you decided to switch to ISPconfig. I tried to switch too but I definitly prefer plesk... And too hard to change when you use Plesk since the time it was named "parallel" plesk :).
So I've made my self-automated-failover-sync with the migration manager command line tool provided by plesk. It's not as clean as a dedicated tool and sometimes "bugged" and a hard pain to manage but that does the job. So far...
Nevertheless I still think your suggested feature is a must have one. So Plesk what are you waiting about ?

Dear Plesk staff,
why is it so difficult, to implement a few embedded features like dovecot replication, MySQL Master-Master replication and a small tool like unison for bi-directional file replication? I moved away from plesk to ISPConfig, where I do have a reliable failover cluster with a failover ip address. I shared this feature request more than six years ago without any reaction from Plesk. Sorry, but since three years I am no longer a Plesk customer.
Please surprise us with some reaction from your side!

This feature is needed for hosting companies that uses Plesk!
We need that really much because in the IT is redundancy a must have!
will we hit 1k votes?
Bludau Media commented
should not as difficult to implement in the current solution....
repeat the plesk migration plugin behaviour and do it until it will be stopped.
with this feature you are able to setup a load balacing service. 2 countrys 2 servers.
Not even a small 'We hear you community, but...' !?
This feature request exists since more than six years. They will never do it. Plesk People: surprise us!
Any updates on this? Seems this is the top voted feature.
