  1. 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

      Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases, if it will be popular.
      Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

    • 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 …

      • 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 Exchange Server 2013 Integration

          I would love to use exchange server 2013 while using plesk panel. Exchange server is by far the most superior email server for windows and would be a great addition to plesk panel.

          I believe that there is also an open API or an easy way to send commands which would make it a lot easier to integrate with.

                  • nginx: remove "location / {...}" directive from default configuration

                    Plesk 12 comes with a default
                    location / {
                    ...
                    }
                    directive in the nginx config file. This is really bad because very many prominent PHP applications and frameworks (e.g. Symonfy 2) ship with setup instructions containing a
                    location / { ... }
                    directive themself, leading to "duplicate location" errors when adding those directives in "Additional nginx directives"

                      Thank you for your input!

                      We plan to revise the implementation of this functionality in the upcoming release, so that web applications can use nginx directives correctly without causing such errors in the nginx configuration.

                      Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

                    • SAN support in Plesk Let's Encrypt

                      If you have a lot of subdomains, you may want to combine them into a single certificate, up to a limit of 100 Names per Certificate. Combined with the above limit, that means you can issue certificates containing up to 2,000 unique subdomains per week. A certificate with multiple names is often called a SAN certificate, or sometimes a UCC certificate.

                      letsencrypt allow this as mentioned on https://letsencrypt.org/docs/rate-limits/

                      Plesk team should implement this feature as soon as possible

                      • 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.

                        • Smarthost/External SMTP

                          It would be nice to have an external SMTP (smarthost) ability for a per-domain basis (most mail services have this)

                          We use this for external scanning, data leak prevention and more.

                          Can this be be done?

Indicating "changed files in the last xx days" to have a time-window to drill down.

                            In addition, accumulate all vhosts together into a seperate "Admin-View", where ALL domains are put together alphabetically.

                            Add an additional button "snapshot", so one could create a list of all webfiles on request. For example, when an incident has been cleaned, then click "snapshot" and then wait some time to see…

                            • Have an option to deliver email addressed to VERP-style email addresses.

                              Postfix already has the option, but it doesn't seem to be supported on Plesk.

                              I want to use VERP so I can automatically process bounce messages with a script. I send out bulk email with a return-path like bounces+uid-john=example.com@ourdomain.com and I want the bounces to be delivered to bounces@ourdomain.com

                              Postfix has the configuration parameter recipient_delimiter. If I set that in /etc/postfix/main.cf, the server accepts the email and passes it to plesk_virtual. But then it is silently discarded instead of being delivered to the bounces mailbox.

                              The only way I see with the current set up to deliver these messages…

                              • Add Firewall rule to block outgoing mail for non-Postfix / non-qmail

                                  • Allow customization of /etc/postfix/main.cf

                                    I want to be able to set the recipient_delimiter. But, currently, any customizations to main.cf get overwritten.

                                    • 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..

                                        Thank you for your input. We are already considering adding PHP Composer in the future releases. We cannot promise you that it will be chrooted, though, since that’s quite expensive to develop. Please let us know how important for you to have PHP Composer chrooted in the comments.

                                      • add an SPF record to the DNS template

                                        SPF information is so far entered through the TXT record. Adding the emerging new SPF record would make sense.

                                        • 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

                                          I…
