  1. Allow SFTP for Personal FTP Repository

    It's good that FTPS is now supported for the Personal FTP Backup Repository. But it would be even better if Backups could be transferred to another server via SSH/SFTP instead of just FTPS, for a completely encrypted connection and data transfer.

    • Set start date on autoreply

      It would be useful to be able to configure auto replies so that they start automatically on a specific date.

      If I don't want to forget to set it before leaving.. or i'm sure there's many reasons!

      • 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.

          • Limit what aditional administrators can do

            It would be useful to have options for what additional administrators can do within the panel. For example, I run hosting as part of my IT company and normally it's me that does all the work in Panel, however it is often useful to have one of my staff to do some admin tasks but I don't necessarily want that person to be able to perform all tasks such as changing critical server settings.

              • Delete mail after forwarding

                I would like to use an E-Mail address as an outgoing E-Mail address with no postbox behind it. All E-Mails should be forwarded to another E-Mail address.
                Currently you can set up forwarding but if you check "Use postbox" than the mails will be kept on the server although they have been forwarded. If you uncheck it, it is impossible to send emails from that address.

                So please add at least an option to delete mails after forwarding them.

                • Webmail - Enable users to edit out of office (auto-response) message in webmail directly

                  I'm not sure if any webmail option right now allows the email user to update their out of office / auto response message. I think the email user has to login to Plesk to be able to edit that right now (which is annoying).

                  Anyone have any suggestion on this?

                  • add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

                    add rar extract and compress to rar and other formats as well as zip available

                    For developers/database admins, sometimes backups are taken in different
                    formats and compression is done in different formats.

                    when compressed files other than ZIP file is uploaded for websites data
                    files, there is no way to uncompress them via PLESK, one has to go to SSH
                    and then extract to use it.

                    So compressing files/folders to multiple formats and then extraction from
                    multiple compressed formats will allow more ease of use for users where
                    they deal with no. of formats!

                    • 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.

                          • 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…

                            • Add possibility to change default webmail.<domain> subdomain to custom

                              At the moment by default any webmail interface is under domain webmail.<domain>

                              Some people would like to use custom one. For me personally it's important to have this as server-wide setting (I have basic workaround for this - custom domainWebmail.php), but it isn't perfect (many links to webmail service missing, e.t.c.).

                              And that's why we have plesk - user friendly interface.

                              • fail2ban now supports IPv6 - please upgrade

                                At some time you closed the request "fail2ban for IPv6" stating that fail2ban does not support it. That was no doubt correct at the time - but now it does, see https://github.com/fail2ban/fail2ban/tree/0.10

                                I'm seeing a lot of warnings in the fail2ban log on my dual stack servers, like this:

                                66:1000:b01c:10ab:0:1: [Errno -9] Address family for hostname not supported

                                and my log checking software is complaining to me about the overly long fail2ban log.

                                See also: https://ctrl.blog/entry/fail2ban-ipv6

                                Thanks! Tim.

                                  • Delete temp. backup files!

                                    Please clean up temp. backup files from the dumps folder.
                                    Failed backups (to FTP) remain in the dumps folder filling up the storage space.

                                    This should not have to happen: please remove these files!

                                    I am running a workaround cronjob script to delete them every day:

                                    #!/bin/sh backup_dumps_delete#
                                    # Delete backup more than 90 days old.
                                    #
                                    backupDir="/var/lib/psa/dumps"
                                    #
                                    daysToKeep=0

                                    echo "Checking for files older than $daysToKeep days in $backupDir"
                                    listOfFiles=`find $backupDir -mtime +$daysToKeep`
                                    if [ ! -z $listOfFiles ]
                                    then
                                    echo "Found [$listOfFiles]"
                                    else
                                    echo "None found."
                                    fi
                                    for toDelete in $listOfFiles
                                    do
                                    echo "Deleting $toDelete"
                                    rm -rf $toDelete …

                                    • Add "Move to spam folder" option in Windows (currently available in Linux)

                                      There is an spam filtering option to "Move to spam folder XXXX" on Linux, but not on Windows (Plesk 11+).

                                      Unfortunately, horde doesn't work so well and every time when a message with broken header arrives, horde displays "Invalid Address" and no subject to all inbox messages. The described fix in https://kb.plesk.com/en/121175 doesn't work in this cases, forcing us to find the broken message manually (or scripting something to do the dirty job).

                                      This feature should exists in Windows env as in Linux.

                                      • Add DNS TTL per entry

                                        Add a DNS TTL per entry option instead of just SOA TTL.

                                        This will make it more inline with products like cPanel etc and is very useful when using dynamic dns to have low TTL but other entries like mx can have a high TTL
