  1. Enable Nginx GeoIP module

    Some of security configuration requires GeoIP detection. It also useful for tracing and should be easy as adding '--with-http-geoip-module' option to configure command for the package.

  2. Support for HTTP/2 on APACHE (only) without using nginx as proxy! And Server Push!

    As we have to use apache, i don't like to go for an aditional nginx proxy just to simulate HTTP/2 ;-)

    I think apache is capable to handel HTTP/2 :-D

  3. add BROTLI support to nginx and apache

    as brotli seams to be a up to 20% better comression library than gzip and used by many CDN Providers it should be possible to switch on in plesk.

  4. Ability to customize nginx per site template e.g. Location /, Location ~, etc

    Hello, I'm using Plesk Onyx and I've also bumped into problems with not being able to set correct NGINX Directives.

    Regarding nginx and nginx configuration for various CMS, Web Apps etc, I see that a lot of directives need to be set and there are a lot of scattered issues around in the web.
    For example most CMS will require a
    location / { ... }
    or for google's pagespeed test we need to add expire headers e.g.
    location ~* \.*.(jpg|jpeg|png|gif|ico|css|js)$ {
    expires 14d;
    }

    I think the Model to building the final vhost conf file should be revised instead…

  5. Add PHP Composer to chrooted

    Please add PHP Composer to chrooted Environments.
    Many Customers Need PHP Composer to install various scripts, cms Systems and libaries.

    A current big Problem is the new typo-neos System - you must use Composer to install at sources correctly

    A other Problem are PHP API's and Libaries like Payment Companies like PAYMILL etc..

  6. provide more nginx options

    Have the ability to provide more Nginx builds/packages. For example, offer a 'nginx-full'-package with more modules.

    For example, I need the Nginx headers more module. Since this need to be built-in at compile time, it isn't possible to add this later on. So that would mean replace the Plesk version of Nginx with the distro-default. (Heck, why does Plesk need it's own Nginx-build, anyway?)

    No, passing headers from Apache is not an option, especially when I'm using the Nginx - PHP-FPM setup.

  7. Fix File and Folder Permissions for docroot from Plesk UI

    When switching from Apache to FastCGI the Service Provider needs to change the permissions for the customer from apache:apache to <user>:psacln

    This can be fixed by having a button in Plesk which does:

    find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -not -user $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chown $PLESK_DOMAIN_OWNER:psacln
    find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type d -not -name "plesk-stat" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755
    find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type f -not -name "*.pl" -not -name "*.cgi" -not -name "*.sh" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0644
    find $PLESK_DOMAIN_HTTPDOCS -type f -name "*.cgi" -print0 -o -name "*.pl" -print0 -o -name "*.sh" -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 0755

  8. jpegoptim, optipng, gifsicle or similar

    id like to see these tools implemented into plesk. To run server wide or domain wide, and via cron if required.

    Alot of large organisations are using these tools. (facebook etc etc)

    I like to see image optimization part of plesk admin panel. It will help servers run faster and optimize web delivery.

  9. Ability to set PHP version per directory inside the same webspace

    A customer would like to be able to assign different PHP versions for different directories inside one the the same webspace.
    For example,
    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs - php5.3.3
    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/test - php5.2.17
    /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/test2 - php5.6.12

  10. The possibility to delete a Domain, without deleting the Website (Content).

    am not understand, when i want to move a Domain, the system will delete all the content. The choice to leave the content, I think is essential. This has to be a must!!!

  11. Allow configuration of the php-fpm slow log

    For debugging PHP-FPM can log slow scripts. It would be great if you could manage this feature via Plesk.

  12. Easy removal X-Powered-By HTTP headers

    By default the HTTP header 'x-powered-by: PleskLin' is added to HTTP responses.
    And with PHP, even the version number is included: 'x-powered-by: PHP/7.3.5'

    For security it is better to not give such information, as it may expose you are using outdated software with known vulnerabilities.
    Currently it is possible to remove these headers, but it requires some manual actions using SSH (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000385274)

    My suggestion is to create page to be able to manage such header additions for all websites and services.

  13. default chroot PHP cli should use Plesk panel PHP version & settings

    Currently when a user uses SSH to execute PHP cli commands, it does not reflect the settings chosen in Plesk panel (it seems to be the default OS vendor PHP). While other PHP versions are available in "/opt/plesk/php/..." the current solution is neither ideal nor transparent to the user (most of them don't even know this path).

    I suggest that the default chrooted PHP command
    -) should use the same version as chosen as in plesk panel
    -) and should use ini settings (memory_limit, max_execution_time) as chosen in plesk panel

    Ideally this should even be possible on domain level, but…

  14. Support from ALPN (Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation)

    Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation (ALPN) Support where good.

    To ensure the best possible compatibility of support would be very good here.
    Of course, this is not a priority but would be good.
    So could the future https, http, be http / 2 Easy granted.

  15. web statistics with additional info (HTTP/HTTPS, IPv4/IPv6)

    I would like to compare HTTP to HTTPS traffic and IPv4 to IPv6 traffic. The data should be in the logs, but it is currently not displayed.

  16. compile nginx with secure_link, mp4 & flv modules

    Please can you include a version of nginx compiled with the following modules (that are required for pseudostreaming support)

    --with-http_secure_link_module
    --with-http_mp4_module
    --with-http_flv_module

    Directions for nginx pseudostreaming compile at: https://gist.github.com/mikhailov/3174601 also indicate the following needed/should be included:

    --with-pcre=/usr/src/pcre-8.32 --with-openssl-opt=no-krb5 --with-openssl=/usr/src/openssl-1.0.1g --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_stub_status_module

    For reference, these are the modules included with the present Plesk 1.6 nginx module:

    --with-ipv6 --with-file-aio --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_realip_module --with-http_sub_module --with-http_dav_module --with-http_gzip_static_module --with-http_stub_status_module

  19. Add HTTP authentication to Panel itself

    I think you should add HTTP authentication to the Plesk panel itself - that way it is more secure and if there is ever a vulnerability that allows bypassing the Plesk panel login, someone would also have to find a vulnerability in HTTP authentication itself before even getting to the Plesk panel in the first place. To me it makes more sense to make the Plesk panel itself the most secure it can possibly be, not just websites/virtual hosts hosted by the Plesk panel.

  20. Nginx Cache purge

    Please, consider to implement some sort of cache purge functionality available from Plesk web interface, because if cache TTL gets extended to match Site needs, it gets complicated, i.e. need to go over Linux Terminal to purge it. A Wordpress integration would be just super fantastic, but I understand, it is not realistic to wish it.
    Thank you!
