  1. Offer proper sftp support through mysecureshell

    It would be nice if Plesk by default installed sftp server software (such as http://mysecureshell.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ ) that allows granting the user sftp access to his home directory only, without having to grant the user full SSH shell access.

    Right now Plesk seems to be promoting FTPS as alternative for securely transfering files, but that simply does not work properly when the end-user has a firewall or NAT setup. Or when you have iptables rules on the server.
    This is caused by that FTPS uses multiple TCP ports like normal FTP.
    However because the control connection traffic is encrypted, firewall software…

    • switch for restore earlier settings or multiple settings at once

      after upgrading to Plesk 11.5 I found out the hard way that some settings were gone, e.g. Email users had no access to control panel unless it was enabled for them again, settings for SPAM/Antivirus were gone unless enabled again in their roles....

      So having multiple customers on a server with several hundreds of mailboxes to manage to set them back again is some real pain in the ass therefor a solution would be nice which enables us to restore those earlier settings at once or to have a proper switch where multiple settings for a Domain can be set…

        • Include server uptime

          Include website uptime in the Web Statisitcs section. This way it allows web admins to keep an eye on all the statistics in one area

          • Send cron email when run manually from control panel

            Actually the cron output is never sent by email if the job is manually run via Control Panel, making difficult to test the whole process.

                • function that users can check the log

                  Hello, I'm using Plesk Onyx 17.5.3.

                  In our environment
                  We are providing Role of DNS to users.
                  I wish to provide users with their own DNS operation log.

                  Administrators can check logs from Tools & Settings.
                  The Subscriptions owner and the Role user who restricts the authority can not check the log.
                  We request a function that can check the log even for users who have restricted Role.

                  If there are some mistakes in English, I’d like to apologize.

                  • Menu hosting server

                    In the menu on the left, on "hosting services", the appropriate order would be:

                    1. Service Plans
                    2. Resellers
                    3. Customers
                    4. Subscriptions
                    5. Domains

                    This is the order of the level of importance when configuring plesk. First you decide how you want to be your service plans. Then if you have resellers. After customers have every reseller. After each customer subscription has finally each domain within a subscription depends on each customer's customers turn a reseller. This is a translate, soory and thanks. A greeting.

                      I don't know if exists but I don't found: a space (can be a free text space) to track some information about the customer or others things about the hosting. Like "post it" or "to do list" or ...

                      • Mail sent to non existent users must contain a domain name for subscription registered to the server and not an external e-mail address

                        Mail sent to non existent users must contain a domain name for subscription registered to the server and not an external e-mail address.

                        I.e. if configured domain = unitedstudios.co.uk
                        Non existent user e-mail box can only be redirected to an e-mail address with a prefix of @unitedstudios.co.uk

                        Has some issues this week where Spam e-mail was being sent to random address for a domain and was being forwarded to an external hotmail domain, causing IP Address sender score issues.

                          • Email forwarding for Email Alias

                            It should be possible to forward an email send to an email alias instead of forwarding every email.
                            eg: I have two email adresses, a main adress, and an alias adress.
                            main_email@mydomain.com (main adress)
                            email_alias@mydomain.com (alias adress)
                            I set the forwarding ONLY to emails send to email_alias@mydomain.com. If the alias received an email, it's send to the forwarded email adress(es).
                            If main_email@mydomain.com receives an email, nothing is forwarded.

                              • What if we could open two different Screens (One for updating information files another for view and check data logs), a time saver

                                Guys, great update....
                                I do pass a lot of time in the server checking patches and sw incrementals and how those are working (i.e Data Base Logs).
                                It would be a time saver is I could open a second screen to check in one files and updates and other one to check logs.
                                keep on doing a grate job

                                • Optimize clarity of the new UI

                                  The new modern UI needs optimization for usability and clarity.

                                  In the last version, useful control buttons (toggles etc) had a clear indicator (icon with bright color) if they are activated or deactivated. Now they are very nondescriptive.

                                  For example the activate/deactivate button in the DNS settings for a domain. It's just a button (but a very important one!) looking like every other button. Because of this lack of clarity, there is no clear indicator if DNS is activated or deactivated in this settings-view.

                                  I'm sure there are more views/pages with this problem.

                                    • Manage size oft ftp upload directories

                                      It would be very useful to be able to ste a Limit for the size of ftp directories (accounts).
                                      If a Webcam has rights to upload Video and Images to a ftp Directory, the size should be limited.

                                        • Clear UI for extensions management

                                          Add button (link) for "Add/remove components" on "Extensions Management" page of Plesk panel.
                                          Now it is required to quit from "Extensions management" page and travel through "Tools & Settings" -> "Plesk" -> "Updates and upgrades" -> "Install and Update Parallels Products" and only after that get new extensions with "Add/remove components".
