  1. MYSQL Performance Tuning and Monitoring

    t would be a good idea to have an SQL section where users can run optimization scripts like MYSQLTUNER etc and enter suggestioned changes in a GUI that directly change the mysql.conf directly and correctly.

    An ability to monitor performance and tweak would be ideal, making the task of SQL performance monitoring and tweaking far easier.

    Also optimize commands and other tasks could be run for this panel.

    as well as optimize and the ability to add it to cron for weekly or monthly.

    • Multiple MySQL Versions configureable over Panel

      I'd be happy if you could integrate multiple MySQL Versions into Plesk. Each Customer should be able to choose his MySQL. Also choosing more than only one version should be implemented.

        Thank you for your input. We will consider the possibility of implementing this feature in upcoming releases.

        Since Plesk Onyx panel admin will be able to install different MySQL versions as a Docker containers, then the DB servers can be connected as remote DB to Plesk.

      • Allow Plesk to use a clustered MySQL Server (Galera)

        According to a ticket I just opened (80693) Plesk currently doesn't support a clustered MySQL server, e.g. an active/active Galera cluster.
        To avoid data-loss or corruption in a server crash, I'd like to run MySQL in a Galera cluster to automatically sync the data again once Plesk's MySQL started after a crash.

          • Hide/Show Database Servers for clients

            Administrator should have the possibility to make Database Servers hidden from Clients.

            My scenario is:

            1 or more servers that are intended for Web only (Nginx+Apache+PHP/Ruby/Python)
            2 or more servers for Databases (MySQL / could be PostgreSQL also)

            In the Database Servers, the administrators should be able to select visible servers for clients.

            Why? Ideal is to hide the localhost server when only external are to be used. Some DB servers may get to full and you want the clients to select only from lower used ones. You have demands from different clients to support older versions of MySQL for…

            • Include pgadmin for Postgres management in Plesk

              phpPgAdmin support was dropped starting from Plesk Onyx 17.8
              This means that Plesk does not have any management tool for Postgres databases shipped with it.

              I suggest to include pgadmin in Plesk installation since the latest ve
              rsion of this software (2018-09-06 - pgAdmin 4 v3.3 Released) has just been released, with adequate security. More info about it you can find here:

                  • PostgreSQL integration and tuning

                    Please do better integration of PostgreSQL into Plesk like CPU and memory usage in Health Monitoring and Dump button in Database page. Please also add PostgreSQL tuning into Plesk, especially for modern hardware with 32 or 64 GB memory and 4 to 8 cores and fast SSD or NVMe drives. Thanks!

                      • Add support for MySQL Governor for CloudLinux

                        Currently Plesk does not support MySQL Governor feature https://docs.cloudlinux.com/index.html?mysql_governor.html
                        and mapping file /etc/container/dbuser-map has to be updated manually

                        Plesk already has integration with CageFS and LVM and detects it once those features installed on the server. It would be great if support for MySQL Governor be implemented in future.

                        • install sql server reporting services with SQL server on shared hosting. Would be a valuable & useful feature for your product & consumers.

                          Availability of reporting services on SQL server would be very useful on shared web hosting. My new ISP says Plesk doesn't support reporting services. I think it would be great if you did - not every site is a blog or simple brochure style. Any small scale business site still requires reporting, and SSRS is a natural fit for ASP.Net hosting.

                                      • 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.

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

                                          For example, set a MySQL database on one server but connect it to my website on the Plesk.
