  2. Restore PostgreSQL databases that has some objects owned by postgres user from Plesk Backup

    It would be great to have an ability to restore PostgreSQL databases that has some objects owned by postgres user from Plesk Backup. As of now, backup is created without any errors, however it is not possible to restore the database because restoration is done not in behalf of postgres user.

    Or at least have a warning when backup is created that I have to restore the database as a postgres user from the command line and do not rely on backup of the database created via backup manager.

  3. Mass import database dump

    There are scenarios where multiple databases for multiple domains have to be restored.

    In such cases, it would be great to be able to mass import dumps from database backup files instead of going one by one manually importing them on a domain basis

  4. Allow @% in MySQL username

    For external databases, I can connect to my server, but when I need to add a new user my SaaS database provider from Azure requires the username have an @%. Because of that the connection string in Plesk never works and fails every deployment of any CMS.

  5. Would you please upgrade PostageSQL?

    PostageSQL provides some powerful function to process non-relational data (eg: "jsonb") after version 9.4.
    Would you please upgrade that?
    Thanks.

    If you mean PostgreSQL, we support 9.4 version in the current 12.5 version – https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/12.5/software-requirements/#s4-2-1 and upcoming Plesk Onyx – https://docs.plesk.com/release-notes/17.0/software-requirements/#s4-2-1

    We will officially support next versions if many people will support your request. But I think that you can try to use 9.5 version right now. It should work, but we have not tested it yet.

  6. Make utf8mb4 default when backing up mysql databases

    When i backup database with Plesk (either with Export/Import feature or with Backup Manager), it loses all characters outside Unicode BMP (all characters > 0xFFFF).
    It's because mysqldump default charset is utf8, not utf8mb4.

    This should be changed, for example, if database contains at least one field with utf8mb4 charset - mysqldump should be run with --default-character-set=utf8mb4 option.

    Settings in /etc/mysql/conf.d/mysqldump.cnf are not respected too, it works when i use mysqldump from command-line, but doesn't work when i export or backup db with plesk.

    MySQL dump 10.13 Distrib 5.7.25, for Linux (x86_64)
    MySQL Server version 5.7.25-0ubuntu0.16.04.2
    Plesk version: Plesk Onyx…

  7. Add an option to use a custom url to access MyLittleAdmin

    It's not always feasible to add the mssql.<domain.tld> DNS entry for the websites hosted in Plesk.

    Adding an option to configure a custom url/dns name to access the MyLittleAdmin tool with would be preferrable.

    And make sure that "MyLittleAdmin" button under Databases would take the user to the global url if it's set.

  10. Add new database formats to ODBC Data Sources menu

    Add .accdb and newer Excel versions to ODBC DSN. Currently, only .mdb and .xls up to Excel 8.0 are available (beside MySQL). Newer versions of database file formats should be supported by this feature.

  11. Incorporate the default collation setting as a feature in the "Tools & Settings: Database Servers: Database Hosting Settings" section.

    It should be a simple matter to incorporate the default collation as a feature in the "Tools & Settings: Database Servers: Database Hosting Settings" section. This also needs to be available as an option when a WordPress site is set up within Plesk.

  12. Disable PHPMyAdmin access to users

    Hello,

    Please add functionality to disable PHPMyAdmin access to users.

  13. Existing remote database for a domain

    Please add functionality to assign an already existing database from a remote database server to a domain.

  15. Integration with external MSSQL AlwaysOn Availability Groups

    Support of integration with external MSSQL AlwaysOn Availability Groups will allow to build fault-tolerant system with best performance and 99,99 % availability of databases.
    Additionally it will release system resources locally on server with Plesk Panel.
    Per my tests such scheme almost work with Plesk Onyx 17.5.3 and MSSQL 2017, however necessary to change or add logic for:
    1) automatic adding of database to 'always on' after creation

    2) removing of databases(need to disable 'always on' for DB first and only after initiate remove command)
    3) database backup creation/restoring

    Regards.

  16. Better MSSQL handling


    • MS SQL Server 2012 Express via Plesk Installer is configured to use dynamic ports by default and this causes a warning in Tools & Settings > Database Serrvers. Packages installed through your installer should not cause a warning by default :)


    • Improve the behavior of field "Allow remote connections from", under Domains > domain.tld > Databases > User Management > username because the generated firewall rule is OFF by default; maybe this is by design, infact the field description states "Your changes in this list will be pre-moderated by your hosting provider.", but the admin doesn't get any notification about…

  17. MSSQL hostname change for an existing MSSQL database server

    When a MSSQL database server is upgraded to a new version, the name can not be changed from within Plesk and it needs to be done manually into the Plesk database once the name is set on MSSQL side.

  18. Add TRIGGER privilege management for database users

    Some of our customers are asking for a way to define triggers on their MySQL/MariaDB databases. Plesk does not grant the TRIGGER privilege on database users it creates.

    Modifying the GRANTs for those users created by Plesk is not a viable workaround, because the permissions get reset if the user is later modified at all via Plesk.

    The only known workaround is to create and manage a separate database user outside of Plesk, which is obviously contrary to the purpose of having Plesk on a server in the first place.

    Please consider adding TRIGGER privilege management to Plesk, or else…
