    • read-only FTP-users (even on Linux)

      Today, it is only possible to give write restriction by using .ftpaccess-files. It would be very nice if there was a switch in the panel when creating FTP users, which would make it possible to create a read-only account.

            • Alternative functionality for configuring FTP backup storage instead of <backup-manager> operator.

              There is a need for new functionality that allows us to configure FTP backup storage settings. Plesk UI is not an applicable way. As XMP-API <backup-manager> operator is deprecated in Plesk 17.8, alternative cli functionality is required to manage FTP backup storage settings. It was possible to perform via XML-API <set-remote-storage-settings> node of <backup-manager> operator.

                  Actually, we consider this ability as potentially dangerous from the point of view of security. We believe that this client should be limited within its webspace.

                  But 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.

                • Copy/Clone files into the directory through File Manager

                  Its not possible to copy a file into the same directory because it doesn’t give you an option to rename it. returning the error message.

                  Unable to copy /httpdocs/index.html: A file or directory with the same name already exists in the destination directory.

                      • Offer proper sftp support through mysecureshell

                        It would be nice if Plesk by default installed sftp server software (such as http://mysecureshell.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ ) that allows granting the user sftp access to his home directory only, without having to grant the user full SSH shell access.

                        Right now Plesk seems to be promoting FTPS as alternative for securely transfering files, but that simply does not work properly when the end-user has a firewall or NAT setup. Or when you have iptables rules on the server.
                        This is caused by that FTPS uses multiple TCP ports like normal FTP.
                        However because the control connection traffic is encrypted, firewall software…
