  1. Implement MariaDB 10.4 support

    Please implement MariaDB 10.4 support. We have upgraded to MariaDB 10.4 by mistake and now we're jumping through hoops adding new websites / DB users.

    The main issue is that MariaDB have moved the 'user' table to a table called 'global_priv' and Plesk is still trying to read from the old one ( which they've converted into a View, so it errors out ).

    We can't downgrade, as it's not supported, and we certainly can't roll back. So it would be extremely awesome of you if you'd help with this.

    Also by reading on Reddit and Plesk Support forum, we're…

  2. 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…

  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. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. Existing remote database for a domain

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

  11. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Rewrite MS SQL stored procedures instead of removing them

    When a user imports a backup of an MS SQL database which contains a stored procedure which executeasprincipalid property equals to "1" or "-2", Plesk removes that procedure. It would be better, if Plesk rewrote executeasprincipalid property instead, with user's ID.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

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

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

  20. 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
