  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!

      • Supporting TLSA Record for DANE

        DANE could be a nice security feature (exaple smtp). To using DANE TLSA Record must be set on DNS.

          • 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.

                • 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

                  • 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.

                    • 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?

                      • 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 …

                          • 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 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!

                                • 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.

                                    Can we have an extension that allows backup to Microsoft OneDrive. Similar to the Dropbox extension that is currently available

                                      Happy to say that you can try backup to Google Drive with Plesk Onyx 17.8 Preview (how to install talk.plesk.com/threads/plesk-onyx-17-8-prev..)
                                      To try it you should install Plesk preview build and Microsoft OneDrive Backup extension:

                                      Note: This Extension is a part of a new full-featured Remote Backup pack. It’s supposed for early evaluation and is compatible with Plesk Onyx 17.8 Preview only

                                    • add google drive application.

                                      add google drive application. to save backups. just like the previous brilliant dropbox application
