  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Compress DB from Plesk

    Compress DB from Plesk
    I miss to be able to Compress DB directly in Plesk.
    At least: A search for "Compress Database" should give SomeResult, even as "Not an option here" - but now delivers now it simply gives NoResults.

  9. DB copy should be 100% DB Copy including SP

    Now the DB copy function does not copy stored procedures and functions. This does make it not very useful.
    A copy should be a full copy

  11. show the php conection string when setting up a mysql database

    show the php conection string when setting up a mysql database.

    the old hosting would show you a connection string that could easily be copied over to the config files.

  13. 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…

  14. Disable PHPMyAdmin access to users

    Hello,

    Please add functionality to disable PHPMyAdmin access to users.

  15. Please add ability to change the password of the psa_root admin for Plesk Onyx so we can connect to the psa database using port 8306

    Plesk Onyx is setting a random password for the psa admin database and the connection to port 8306 using the default admin password is not possible.There is no way of retrieving or reseting the psa database admin password which is causing big trouble if we want to connect to the psa database or want to change the default database using plesk repair

  16. External MySQL permissions per user/reseller

    After adding an external database server via tools & settings -> db servers , set the option of who is permitted to use it.
    This way we can offer private sql srv's to e.g resellers or anyone who would like to buy this addon feature.

  17. Provide DNS query logs for each domain along with other customer log files.

    Hi, my end users would like the DNS query logs for their domains. It would be great if Plesk could provide this via the existing panel!

    Thanks!

  18. Ability To Install MariaDB Upgrade from RedHat Collections

    Onyx allows upgrading the default MariaDB post install by installing the MariaDB.org Repo. It does not allow installing suported versions from licensed and supported Red Hat Collections. Please provide a way to do this as the only supported method is not suitable for mission crtical databases.

    From MariaDB:

    ll use of the binaries from mariadb.org is at your own risk as stated in the GPLv2. While we do our best to make the world’s best database software, the MariaDB Foundation does not provide any guarantees and cannot be hold liable for any issues you may encounter.

    Supported and certified binaries…

  20. Allow MSSQL database cloning with different users

    Actually the cloned MSSQL database will be accessible to same users as the source database.

    You cannot copy over an existing database with no users in common.

    You cannot ever change access rights for such user, if the database contains an user-defined table (see: https://snag.gy/HJbdQU.jpg). Please note that the link "Search for related Knowledge Base articles" is broken.
