  1. Find and Install Apache Modules

    In the apache modules screen have a space where a user can find and install packages via a GUI interface instead of using command line to setup modules.

  3. Prevent users from installing SSL certificates

    As reseller (or administrator) we should be able to prevent customers installing a selfsigned or 3rd party bought SSL certificate themselves.

    It's not possible to disable the 'SSL support' check box within the
    'Service Plans' menu section 'Hosting Parameters' because as Administrator we install customer SSL certificates by API. Disabling 'SSL support' will also disable installing SSL certificates by API.

  4. Improve firewall module to allow editing outside of Plesk

    The Plesk firewall module overwrites any custom rules saved outside of the firewall itself (for IP tables rules added via command line). It would make it a lot easier if the firewall module worked with the native tool and read the existing firewall rules instead of overwriting any rules not created by the module itself.

  7. Add ability to manage NAT rules by Plesk Firewall.

    Native Linux tool iptable has the ability to add custom NAT rules, however when Plesk Firewall is used these rules are flushed, so it is not possible to use Plesk Firewall + NAT rules by iptables.

    Due to this adding possibility to manage NAT rules via Plesk Firewall would be a great extension, making configuration manageable via Plesk graphical interface.

    Could you clarify – why server-wide backup doesn’t work for the case?
    If you have a server-wide backup, which was created before a user deletion, you are able to restore any data related to the user, including whole their structure (the user account, all their subscriptions/domains, and their content),

  10. Billing Plesk Solution for customer and reseller

    I know that there is WHMCS billing solution but it is not intuitive and need lot of task to make it work.
    Please could you reflect including a Ready To Go billing solution, just by installing an extension, it could be a GREAT release !

  11. In-place dist-upgrade Windows Server 2008 (R2) to Windows Server 2012 (R2)

    It would be nice if Plesk supports an in-place dist-upgrade from Windows Server 2008 (R2) to Windows Server 2012 (R2).

    I see that this upgrade is supported by Microsoft – https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn303416(v=ws.11).aspx
    But I suppose that in Plesk context its is very complex procedure which can lead to unpredictable consequences in Plesk operation. Support of this dist-upgrade will take a lot of resources for developing and testing. Therefore I think that migration from one server to other or through backup/restore procedure is much more tested and safe procedure.

    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.

  14. Event manager - Pre and post action

    Hello all,
    I hope this idea can be shared with many of you.

    Actually in the Events manager you can handle a task, an action you can run AFTER the event occurs. Can be really usefull to have the same BEFORE, I'm going to explain:

    Make an example can be when a Subscription or a Domain is going to be removed from the hosting server, can be really usefull to backup data or something else similar before the task is executed.

    At moment is impossible to handle a task before an event occurs, we hope can be usefull for other…

  15. Plesk Multi Server: allows mailbox owners access to Plesk

    Plesk Multi Server should allows mailbox owners access to Plesk using credentials from their mailboxes so they can manage their Out-of-Office and reset their password. This feature is present in the standalone Plesk but needs to be ported over to Plesk Multi Server

  16. Add simple subdomain for plesk (IIS-Binding)

    At the moment it is not possible to define one or multiply simple subdomains to access plesk direct. At the moment a client has to user https://www.domain.com:8443 to login.

    In IIS it is possible to add a binding like plesk.domain.com SSL so a client can directly access by https://plesk.domain.com without portnumber...

    As soon a Plesk-Update is installed, this manually added binding is no more working. Therefore and because to extend Plesk with this feature, it is neccessary to add this function directly into plesk.

  18. Automatically add new Obsidian release to mirror repository

    Plesk Obsidian is released in the following way:
    PSA 18.0.21
    PSA
    18.0.23
    PSA_ 18.0.24
    ...
    Currently, if local repository is used each new version has to be added manually. Automatic synchronization would be a nice feature.

  19. When installing extensions, after install, 3rd party repos should remain disabled

    When installing extensions on Plesk Obsidian, those sometimes enables 3rd party repos like Epel.
    It's also possible that those 3rd party repos have newer versions of system packages that breaks the functionality (for example: the well known non-working AWStats from Epel on Plesk).
    It should be able to disable 3rd party repos after the extension install, and re-enable them and limit its usage to the extension update/install only, so no other packages are updated.
