  1. 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

          Would be nice to add this to the Plesk Firewall Module.

            - DKIM is easy to enable
            - VBS scripts/API for management

            Please submit other specific advantages in comments

              • change password next login

                Ask user to change password at next login screen after reset.
                We the providers could generate a temp password (customer asks for a reset), and after the first login screen, plesk will force ask from the client to change our temp password.

                • Purge/clean mailboxes

                  When mailboxes on a domain get full, it would be very useful to be able to purge them. This is especially relevant when all mail in the mailbox has been downloaded to an email client since the only way to delete the mail from the server is to delete the mailbox and recreate it.

                      • Fail2ban setting findtime per Jail

                        In Fail2ban (great idea to include it in plesk!) settings you can set "Time interval for detection of subsequent attacks" (findtime) in general. But it would be interesting this setting per Jail.
                        Why?
                        you could have 2 jail with same filter but different findtime. Example:
                        Jail 1) 5 failures in 600 seconds: 1800 seconds ban
                        Jail 2) 30 failures in 86400 seconds: 604800 seconds ban

                        There are bots that detect if you have some protection fail2ban or similar and it will adapt, login attempt every 300 seconds for example. Jail 1 no detect this attack, but Jail 2 yes.

                          • to crete a GUI for the spamfilter.

                            Within the GUI it should be possible to manage the most common tasks of SpamAssassin like the following:

                            - sa-update set up a cronjob for downloading new rules and scores automatically
                            - sa -learn spamfilter training for side/server wide configuration
                            -managing of black and whitelists
                            -adding custom rules and scores

                            A GUI for the spamfilter in conjunction with the planned GUI for the Greylisting will help administrators to reduce the load of incoming spam in a more comfortable way

                              • subscription wide mailbox size

                                For example(now) a subscription has:
                                - 10 Mailboxes
                                - Maximum mailbox size of 100MB
                                So the maximum disk usage would be 1GB. but there are 2 LIMITATIONS here. first the client can't make more then 10 mailboxes.
                                Second the maximum size of an mailbox is 100MB. You can make them smaller but that is useless.

                                a subscription wide mailbox size can remove these restrictions and so greatly increase the flexibility for the client. For example the subscription wide mailbox size of 1GB and maximum of 5(or unlimited) mailboxes.

                                the client wants:
                                info@domain.tld: 600MB(is logic since an info@domain is much…

                                • 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.

                                  • add the option to add custom wordpress themes and plugins and enable the user to set those as standard for installation

                                    As of now only the standard free Wordpress themes and plugins are available. This is kinda stupid since professional sites rely on professional themes and plugins being bought from reliable vendors.

                                    As such it even makes sense to remove all basic themes upon installation.

                                    The ideal option would be:
                                    1. Supply and store a custom Wordpress theme or plugin in Plesk (which might include also a Child-theme)
                                    2. Offer the option to supply that theme or plugin from 1. as standard to any Wordpress installation
                                    3. Offer the option to update/upgrade the theme or plugin centrally

                                    In themes it is…

                                      This functionality was considered for the initial release of WP Toolkit, so it’s definitely something we want to introduce.

                                      However, custom plugins and themes cannot be updated from wordpress.org, so our current Update functionality is not likely to work with them. There might also be other limitations.

                                      Let us know what trade-offs are acceptable and what is absolutely necessary in the comments. Thanks!

                                      In order to minitoring some corporate email, create an option like redirect, to copy every outgoing message from a specific box to another, I had it once and i was very useful for monitoring company emails.

                                      • 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…
