  1. Mautic Toolkit

    Mautic is the most popular open source software for marketing automation. It would be nice to see a Mautic Toolkit like Wordpress Toolkit or Nexloud Toolkit for Plesk.

  2. Creating a global FTP(S) account

    It might be usefull to create one or more Global FTP(S) accounts which can access all the vhost directories. In addition an IP Whitelisting filter might be desirable to additionally protect access.

  4. NodeJS Allow more environment variables

    When setting environment on a NodeJS App (using NodeJS extension) I am getting to the limit of four variables, sometimes five.

    I assume that line ending is reached or something. I am connecting to several mongodb databases and for each db I need to auth which is set within an environment variable.

    This limits my app a lot since I need to build overcomplicated workarounds using files to be loaded async and their content to be validated, then connecting to the db and so on.

  5. NodeJS (Linux): Change App/Doc Root Folder Warnings

    Having for example "Document Root: /httpdocs" and "Application Root: /httpdocs/api" (where the NodeJS files are) actually works, only that the files in /httpdocs take precedence. So accessing for example "domain.com/api" from browser did not work as there's index.html in /httpdocs, but it works when tested with Postman.

    So, I think the warning text can be changed accordingly.

    I don't know what security implications does running both a website on /httpdocs and API on /httpdocs/api have, though.

  6. Nodejs reboot app on git update

    It would be very handy if it were possible to automatically reboot the Node.js application when a git push is done to branch (master in most cases).
    The changes are already pulled, but I need to log in to plesk to click on the "restart app" button.

  7. Disable PHP's open.base_dir restriction by default

    Every configured hosting/website gets their proper own user with their own permissions. If you run your website with the PHP-FPM handler, the processes properly run with this very user.
    Why is there still open.base_dir restrictions applied by default? I don't really see the point.

    Why am I asking? Enabling open.basedir has a massively (!) negative impact on performance. PHP's internal realpath cache is automatically disabled when open.basedir is activated which slows down all the file operation calls tremendously.
    As the user permissions are properly set up, this is imho a missed opportunity for free performance gains.

  10. Change database autogenerated name convention in APS

    Installing Wordpress 8or other apps) via APS, the autogenerated database name is something like 'wordpress_N' with N incrementing from 1, that is non-sense and causes great troubles when using Plesk Migrator to migrate a subscription to another server when there are already installed applications.

    You may name the database like 'wordpressX' with X random, or include part of the domain name in the database generated name, for example if domain is named testdomain.tld the db name maybe 'testdomainX'.

  11. Github Actions CI/CD for deploy

    Hi.
    Now that Github has CI/CD through Workflow Actions, It would be nice to have an official plesk deployer.
    There is already a FTP uploader, but it would be nice to have something from Plesk for IIS deploy, with config variable transformation, etc.

  12. Magento 2.3.4 support

    It would be good to add Magento 2.3.4 support to Plesk with all needed compatibility adjustments (such as PHP handlers update).

  13. Clone domain files and database

    Hello,
    Tipically having a CMS running (ie Prestashop) requires also setting up an exact copy for testing new features/uogrades/updates.
    We have to manually:
    1) Export/import database dump into a new one,
    2) copy files and dirs into a new (sub)domain
    3) change some settings (config files) to link new (sub)domain to the newly imported database

    Couldn't at least points 1) and 2) be automatized with a 1-click option after inserting some data (ie new database name, user, pw)?
    Cheers

  15. Passenger to log output separately per domain basis

    Currently all passenger NodeJS process output their logs to /var/log/apache2/error.log.

    Would be good to be able to log output separately per domain basis, so every domain has it own log inside the folder.

  18. Add support for the Cluster module in Passenger

    Add support for the Cluster module in Passenger supplied with Plesk:
    https://nodejs.org/api/cluster.html#cluster_cluster

    Currently, when Node Cluster module is called on a NodeJS application configured in Plesk in development mode, the following error is be shown:

    Trace: You required the Node Cluster module, which is incompatible with Passenger, a non-functional shim was returned and your app may still work. However, please remove the related code as soon as possible.
