  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  7. Compile PHP 7.2 with Argon2

    Argon2 is a new feature of PHP 7.2 as stated here: http://php.net/releases/7_2_0.php. It won the password hashing competition and is the recommended hashing algorithm.

    It must be enabled my re-compiling PHP 7.2 with `--with-password-argon2`.

  8. Temporary FTP accounts (with expire date)

    It would be great to have ftp account with an expire date.
    A sort of temporary ftp accounts.

    This becomes really usefull when you need to share your ftp details temporary with a webdeveloper, or somebody else to maintain of check an website.

    I always make a new FTP account for this sort of events, but then forget to delete them. It would be real nice if you could set a expire date that the account automaticly blocks itself after that date is past.

  10. Docker Compose to use over the admin panel

    I would like to administrate multiple Docker container via Compose, editable over the Admin panel. Some easy deploying mechanism including the Volumes of the container from my local machine over upload or git would be nice.

  11. 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.

  12. Use Lets Encrypt to secure FTPs connections

    Hi,

    I usually use the ftp.site.com subdomain for the client FTP connections.
    And to secure those connections I enabled FTPs. But at this point the users receive a certificate host name mismatch because the FTPs connection is being setup using the VPS Lets Encrypt cert.

    It would be nice to use the Lets Encrypt certificate service also to secure the FTPs connections.

    Thanks!

  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.

  14. provide a way to see why a subscription is locked

    Many times I find that some subscriptions won't sync because they are locked. I'd really like to know why they are locked. So far, I've been able to unlock & sync with no noticeable changes. But I'm left wondering what caused the lock in the first place. And I'm afraid that I'll realize later something no longer works as expected.

  15. Allow using a centralized SmarterMail Server for BOTH LINUX and WINDOWS Plesk installations

    The implementation of the centralized smartermail in plesk onyx for windows is good, but it should also be possible to integrate this feature into the linux edition.

    Many hosters provide both windows and linux hosting with ONE centralised mail solution. Since the integration for winodws is already done I suppose it shouldn't be too hard to integrate it into the linux version as well since smartermail is completely API based.

  16. 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…

    Hello,
    Thanks for your input, we understand the importance. This Feature request is registered in our tracking system as PPM-344 and it will be included into future Plesk versions. There is no ETA at the moment, but we would really appreciate you voting for this request so that we can accurately assess its popularity relative to other features. Thanks in advance!

  17. Create daily md5-hashes of the web-content of a domain, to quickly identify tampering or hacking.

    Let Plesk on every night optionally create/compare md5-hashes from all files in the domains storage-space (web,httpdoc,ftp) and update this in a simple list (database), sortable by date of last change, size, number of changes. 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…

  18. Renew a subscription

    Ability to renew a subscription based on the subscription plan's configured subscription expiry date.

    So if a subscription expires in ten days from now and it's subscription plan is set to expire in one year, I would like to be able to click a Renew button to extend the subscription with one more expiry unit (1 year in this case, 2 years if the subscription plan would have been set to expire every two years).

    Also show renewal date in the list and sort by renewal date
