  1. Add a migration tool to WP Toolkit from other software installation platforms (Installatron / Softaculous)

    We've been using Installatron for ages, but WP Toolkit has become a really powerful tool over the last couple of years. While we can work on integrating our systems with WP Toolkit directly, one major obstacle is moving clients over from one system to the other - including their backups / update settings / etc.

    I'd love to find a way to make migrations over to the WP Toolkit seamless!

  2. Security measurement toggle to prohibit use of WordPress XML-RPC

    Please implement a toggle in the WordPress Toolkit security section to disable / prohibit XML-RPC entirely, not just pingbacks like in the current state.

  3. Search and replace urls after cloning

  4. Disable "Install Plugins" pop-up after WordPress Toolkit instance installation

    It should be possible to disable the pop-up after installation of a WordPress instance with WordPress Toolkit:
    "Installation Complete Wordpress has been installed. Take a minute to set it up."

  5. Add the import feature to the "plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli" utility

    There is an export option for the "plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli":

    plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli -instance-id 2 -- export

    Starting export process...
    Writing to file /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/futureinvestments.wordpress.2022-06-03.000.xml
    Success: All done with export.
    But the import feature require native "wp" utility to be installed, and fails via plesk utility with error:
    WordPress Importer needs to be installed. Try 'wp plugin install wordpress-importer --activate'.

    Such option (import) in plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli would improve usability

  9. Change the way WordPress backups works in regards to the Hard quota of disk

    During the WP backup process there is an intermediate plain SQL database and WP files created in the temporary folder:

    ls -l /var/www/vhosts/example.com/.wp-toolkit/backups/351

    total 20972
    drwxr-xr-x 3 sysuser psacln 4096 Apr 28 16:16 files
    -rw-r--r-- 1 sysuser psacln 21468967 Apr 28 16:16 sqldump.sql
    Since this DB and Files folder belong to the system user of the Domain, such files consume the hard quota of the disk.
    So the following situation can happen:
    - The hard quota is 4GB
    - The website size is 2GB
    The customer thinks that there is enough space to create a WP zip backup
    During the…

  11. Custom labels & coloring

    I would suggest some custom labels like:

    • Old or Deprecated
    • New or Fresh (the filter returns all new sites withing a fixed date like 1 month or so)
    • To be removed
    • To be updated
    • To be redesigned

    Also:

    Other label colors would also be nice like orange, red , green yellow , and grey

    also commented here about filtering:

  15. Remove WPTK instances name from the UI

    When using the WPTK "copy data" feature, it also overwrites the name of the target instance with that of the source instance. This causes both target and source instances to have the same name, which causes confusion in other operations.

    Is it possible to prevent the "copy data" feature from updating the target instance's name, or remove the instance names from the UI altogether?

  18. Provide WPTK with ability to manage NinjaFirewall plugin

    Currently, WordPress Toolkit allows only deactivating of the plugin in WordPress > example.com > Plugins tab. However, it should also be possible to activate it via WPTK, not directly in WP Admin dashboard.

  19. Strengthen WordPress Toolkit password policy to match Plesk's password policy

    WordPress Toolkit doesn't have a strict password policy as Plesk has, as it allows very weak passwords to be changed to. Therefore, allowing WordPress Toolkit to have the same password policy as configured in Plesk or having a configurable password policy should increase security.

  20. Add global option to control default value of "Search Indexing Enabled" and "Debugging" for newly created site

    We've WordPress development company and use Plesk for managing lots of staging servers for projects under development.
    All domains are created automatically via API as part of the project's start process, and, of course, all instances that are under development should not be indexed during the development stage (as it will affect the page index of the site in production).
    By default, "Search Indexing" option is enabled, and this is quite inconvenient and error prone for us (as it requires manual setup of the created instance).
    Adding global server-wide configuration option for WP Toolkit that will control such default behavior…
