  1. 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

  4. Add ip manually to fail2ban

    It is not possible to add an ip manually to fail2ban trough Plesk interface. Sometimes you detect an offending ip address which you want to ban from your system, before it is detected by recidive rule.

  5. Possibility to activate DKIM and DomainKey without active local DNS

    Please make possible generating and activating DKIM/DomainKey without having active local DNS server. Consider following situation:

    You have a website that use as sender your domain when sending email and you are want to follow best practices in order to reach inbox, but this domain uses another server for DNS (cloudflare for example, godday, etc.). In this case you need to have DKIM/DomainKey signed mails without the need to activate local DNS server. Also mail management could be set off for that domain, but mails still should be able to be signed.

    I believe that this scenrario is real and…

  6. Show reason of deferred message in mail queue

    Actually it's possible to show deferred messages headers in : Tools and settings > mail server settings > mail queue

    It would be very useful if it's possible to show the reason why the message is deffered or stuck in the queue (/var/spool/postfix/defer).

  7. Let's Encrypt: separate cert for webmail (without main domain in SAN)

    We have a setup where webmail.example.com and example.com point to another server than our Plesk instance. Because of this we can't enable Let's Encrypt on Webmail since the CSR contains webmail.example.com and example.com.
    So I hope you consider adding an option to only create webmail.example.com (without SAN example.com)

  8. Complete DMARC Support

    The DMARC support in Plesk Onyx 17.5.3 ist incomplete. If an incoming email is rejected due to a DMARC fail there is no mailer daemon generated to inform the sender of this email.

    Please add this important feature to DMARC support. Otherwise it would not be usable for most customers.

  9. 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?

  10. Limit amount of backups per customer

    Hey guys,

    I am sure that I speak for hundreds of users when I say that having a limit on backups per customers and or subscriptions should be an important and available option. The option to also limit backups based on the customers subscription storage size will be even better. Otherwise, customers who overuse the backup option will dramatically increase storage space on the server without realization of the administrator. It wouldn't be ideal for an administrator to enter the dumps folder to delete random customer backups. Really hope you guys can resolve this and add this feature as soon…

  11. 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..

  12. Add mcrypt module to Plesk PHP 7.2 and newer

    Add mcrypt module to Plesk PHP 7.2 and newer.
    For previous PHP versions it's included out of the box.

    Mcrypt 1.0.2 natively supports PHP 7.2+ (https://pecl.php.net/package/mcrypt/1.0.2)

    It's, for example, required by Prestashop 1.7.x, which is quite popular among Plesk users.

  13. Backport Fail2Ban IPv6 Support to Plesk Onyx 17.x

    As of now, feature with 178 votes is available in Plesk Onyx 17.9 Preview only: https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/17924536-fail2ban-now-supports-ipv6-please-upgrade

    It would be awesome to have this feature available on earlier versions of Plesk Onyx without the necessity to wait until Plesk Onyx 17.9 becomes stable.

  15. add backup password protection to Backup Manager Backups (NO..it doesn't have it at the mo)

    This may also be a security issue.
    Currently there are no special protection of user content in the backup. Plesk protects only its sensitive data, web content archived without any encryption.

    If some gains ADMIN access to a wordpress/drupal/other web applications install parts of the Plesk container file system, cron jobs, etc will be compromised and would undoubtably increase exponentially the chances of the system to be exploited with virus, rootkits, malware “indirectly” affecting Plesk. (as an analogy no point to build a metal wall if the door is still glass)

    So, in other words ... if a wordpress installation…

  16. Allow Plesk to use a clustered MySQL Server (Galera)

    According to a ticket I just opened (80693) Plesk currently doesn't support a clustered MySQL server, e.g. an active/active Galera cluster.
    To avoid data-loss or corruption in a server crash, I'd like to run MySQL in a Galera cluster to automatically sync the data again once Plesk's MySQL started after a crash.

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. Generate a deploy key per repo in the Git extension

    Currently, the Git extension only generates one deploy key per Plesk user (according to @PleskHelps on Twitter). Unfortunately, GitHub doesn't allow a deploy key to be used more than one time across ALL repos, meaning every single GitHub repo requires a unique deploy key. As a result, I can clone only one of the 40 some repos I would like to on my Plesk installation.

    I would like to suggest the option to have a unique deploy key generated for every single repo you want to clone. That would make the Git extension infinitely more useful for me and many…
