  5. 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:

  6. 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.

  7. Nginx restart interval functionality

    An Nginx restart interval should be helpful for situations when users use API calls to modify domain's PHP settings. This results in multiple nginx reloads:

    /var/log/plesk/rc_actions:

    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:26:00 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload
    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:26:44 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload
    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:26:59 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload
    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:28:06 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload
    INFO: [Tue Feb 26 15:29:11 CET 2019]: Service: nginx, Action: try-reload

    A similar functionality exists for apache in Tools & Settings > Apache web server > Restart interval.

  8. Redirect Plesk from HTTP to HTTPS on Windows

    Redirect http://hostname:8443 to https://hostname:8443 on Windows.

    Currently only Plesk on Linux can do this.

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Exclude internal requests from the Traffic statistics

    Plesk seems to add up the request response size,
    including those of its own extenal IP address.
    We would like to disable this behaviour or filter out this info, because
    this is not the actual traffic.

    We have customers that have a lot of internal requests because of some
    caching module where about 50% of the total traffic is from its own IP.

    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.

  16. Support of the NGINX Plus and NGINX App Protect

    Please add possibility to use Plesk with NGINX Plus and NGINX App Protect as it has more more functionality like Load Balancer, Reverse Proxy, API Gateway

  17. Supply versions of Apache newer than provided by OS vendors

    Currently, Plesk supports Apache from the Linux vendor and does not provide its own Apache build. For example, CentOS 6 has Apache 2.2 by default.

    Based on the article comment it would be good to have more recent Apache version in use: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/213901685?page=1#comment_360001830960


    Apache 2.4.6 was released in 2013 (!) in the meantime the latest version is Apache 2.4.46 (august 2020).
    I understand Plesk cannot update Apache every time to a newer version, however still running 2.4.6 is a bit absurd.

    Furthermore there are quite a few CVE fixes in the newer versions along with several new performance tweaks /…

  18. Make possible to manage limit_req_zone for nginx

    modbw cannot be used for limiting connection when nginx enabled. Plesk does not provide out of box enabling and configuring limitation of connections for nginx. Please add support for limitreqzone which provide similar functionality as modbw for nginx so that it would possible to control such resources.

  20. Implement the http_realip_module in the sw-cp-server

    Compile sw-cp-server with httprealipmodule.
    It is useful when Plesk itself is behind a proxy.

    Example use-case: redirect clients from WHMCS to Plesk when Plesk is protected by CloudFlare
