      • Add nginx-only hostings

        I'll like to create a hosting that only use Nginx as webserver. Also I'll like to do this with Node.js, but I think it will not be approved.

          Current scope for Plesk Onyx is to enable an ability to serve all http(s) requests by Nginx only.

          Note: apache will still be installed. Switching of apache to optional component is subject for the next release.

          Update:

          The ability to turn off Apache and have content served by nginx only on a per-website basis is now available in the latest Plesk Onyx 17.0.14 preview. We encourage you to check the implementation and let us know what you think. Please visit the following forum thread to learn how to access the preview: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-preview-and-feedback.337172

          How to try this feature:

          Go to any website, click Apache & nginx Settings and deselect the “Proxy mode” checkbox under nginx settings. The feature is also available in Service Plans.

          We would appreciate hearing your feedback on implementation of this functionality. Thanks in advance!

        • 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.

                  • Setting alternate directory path location of the vhost per Domain or service packet

                    At the moment it is not possible to change or choose the vhost path for a domain. Every Domain is installed in the standard vhost path, at example /var/www/vhosts
                    If someone has a Server with attached fast and slow storage or big and small storage, it should be possible for the administrator to choose between them when installing a new Domain. It could be possible to give a customer service packages with faster storage for mission critical domains or giving him a lot of space for another domain located on disk drives mounted to another location.

                      At the moment you can change default vhosts location in Plesk using the command-line utility transvhosts.pl
                      Just check available options with

                      plesk bin transvhosts.pl —help

                      Changing vhosts directory location for part of domains is impossible now.

                      Anyway 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.

                    • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • Option to assign several IP addresses on a domain

                              Currently only two IP addresses can be assigned to a domains in case they are IPv4 and IPv6.
                              It will be great to assign several IPv4 and/or IPv6 at once.

                                      • Allow to enable/disable indexes in password protected directories

                                        Currently there is no way to enable showing file index when using protected directory with nginx.

                                        "autoindex on;"

                                        • should allow Domain-Forewarding for every Domain in an Abonnement

                                          Currently it is not possible to make domain-forwarding for every Domain in an Abonnement. You have to select website-Hosting for the first domain to enable Forwarding for other Domains.
