  1. add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

    add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

    For developers/database admins, sometimes backups are taken in different
    formats and compression is done in different formats.

    when compressed files other than ZIP file is uploaded for websites data
    files, there is no way to uncompress them via PLESK, one has to go to SSH
    and then extract to use it.

    So compressing files/folders to multiple formats and then extraction from
    multiple compressed formats will allow more ease of use for users where
    they deal with no. of formats!

    • Add new site or modify existing site without Apache restart /graceful restart

      For example, Odin uses a system where all the website information is stored inside a NoSQL database, and apache just reads this data with a special module:

        • More out of the Box configuration for Microcaching (Nginx)

          As far as now in Plesk 17.8.9 Beta there are just limited options to configurate Nginx Mircocache.

          There is no option to Cache every time.
          Even if you de-select all of the "Bypass cache when" Rules your file looks like that.

          /var/www/vhosts/system/domain.tld/conf/nginx.conf

          [...]
          proxy_no_cache $no_cache;
          proxy_cache_bypass $no_cache;
          [...]

          But I want Microcache to Cache even if nocache is set.
          Also these values are not configurable:

          For Microcache

          proxy_cache_valid
          proxy_cache_background_update
          proxy_cache_ignore_headers
          proxy_cache_buffer_size
          proxy_cache_buffers
          proxy_cache_busy_buffers_size
          proxy_cache_temp_file_write_size
          proxy_cache_read_timeout
          proxy_cache_lock
          proxy_cache_methods
          proxy_cache_revalidate
          proxy_cache_min_uses
          proxy_http_version
          proxy_set_header

          I would love to have some more options to fully configurate Microcache.

          Thanks in advance and best regards,
          Martin

          • API: let customer be able to manage his own site-aliases

            Currently only the Administrators can manage site-aliases with the API.
            Why is it not possible for customers to manage site-aliases of their own sites, while they can manage their sites and subscriptions ?
            Now I have to use administrator access in the API on a single website, which is a security issue. This website can now manage everything. I would prefer to use the credentials of the customer to manage it.

            • Statistic usage per each page on website

              I can see the bandwidth of each domain on my webserver. But now i came with the idea (I dont know if it was requested before, or if it is a feature of the web host edition only) that you can see the bandwidth each page uses, so you can see it for the whole domain, but also every page you have in your plesk folder, so you have a more detailed overview what people like to look at on your page.Maybe a calculator how many mb one user uses (there are tools on the web for this, but something…

                  Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, this request contains several different suggestions, and it’s not technically possible to properly handle them inside one request. Please consider creating separate feature requests for each of the items below:

                  - PHP – compiled with maximum support for all extensions
                  You can use PHP from original OS vendor repo. Please create a new request and let us know why do you not use OS vendor repo and what exactly extension do you need.

                  - NGINX – compiled with maximum support for all extensions
                  Each new module affects nginx. Could you explain what exactly nginx module do you want? Please create a new request and let us know what module do you need.

                  - Apache – compiled with maximum support for all extensions
                  Plesk doesn’t ship Apache, it only downloads it from original OS vendor repo.

                  — AY

                • Support for modern web statistics programs such as GoAccess

                  It would be nice if https://goaccess.io/ was supported for statistics.

                  - Written in C, so faster than a perl script such as awstats.
                  - Can be used in the traditional way to generate static HTML statistics pages from log files.But a more advanced integration could also provide real-time statistics.

                              Text editor could update data without refreshing page. After updated data with Ctrl-S, all data perfectly updates but not working ctrl-z. To solve this problem use js tech . For example use ajax , it will request data in the background and then will update perfectly .

                                  • Mod_pagespeed 'cache' clear button in speed settings panel

                                    When tuning system for mod_pagespeed, http/2, PHP7 w/opcache, https, ran into issue with Apache, where turning mod_pagespeed off, then back on, or off then restarting doesn't clear cache. On a development site, I had to do a htaccess to fully disable in order to apply CSS changes which were 'stuck' -- a 'clear cache' option from panel would be super cool, vs command line ! :-)

                                      • Add install options for aps on subscription create pages

                                        Hi Plesk Team,

                                        It would be great to have a tickbox/dropdown that will let you select and install the most popular Catalog Aps on the create subscription page. This feature could be left unticked to ignore it (perhaps in advanced features section)
