  1. Rename database

    Doing this by hand is very time consuming. An option for rename database would be great feature.

    • 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.

      • 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

              • Maldet for linux inside Plesk

                Hello,

                is better if such as "wordpress toolkit" you implement this software in plesk https://www.rfxn.com/projects/linux-malware-detect/ + ClamAV (is more faster the maildect search).

                With this way, anyone can scan our website from malware. And after scan, the user need to have an notify via email or directly into plesk. This inscrease the security of website and also increase the plesk security.

                I use it somethimes for scan all website into our web hosting, and I found it very usefull for prevent serius problem of botnet, hacked website etc.

                I hope that you can consider to implement this function.

                Regards

                • 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!

                  • 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.

                      • 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.

                            • 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!

                                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.

                                  SE

                                • 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…

                                    Some users don't know why they should enter https:// if they have to access webmail, they use http://
                                    http is insecure. Easpecially in combination with unencrypted wireless connections.
                                    Actually you have to go into the plesk code to set this function somewhere. Why does plesk provide the webmail-login insecure by default?
                                    If you have setup an Domain Certificate, at least then plesk should offer the option to force ssl on accessing webmail.mydomain.??

                                    • Introduce Email Signature/Disclaimer management

                                      Plesk controlled signature/disclaimer management

                                      1)per user
                                      2)per URL
                                      3)server wide

                                      plesk or email in drop down and in the text field
                                      ----

                                      2. signature at domain-level (*@sld.tld) | eg: Company xyz, Address
                                      3. signature at server-level | eg: "Nessage was tested against spam by xyz-freemail.com"

                                      Every "snippet" should be added from level | in this example:
                                      "regards

                                        • 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?
