    bump
    it is becoming quite common to see this feature and clients still ask why the ssh buttton in plesk does not work. A modern implementation would be great.

    This is a valid request, so we’ll look into it. 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.

    The original request contains a manual solution, so, we consider to automate it. Please, add a comment if your case will not be solved with that solution.

    Thanks in advance!

    yes yes yes.. constantly editing /etc/passwd is a pain and often causes weird side effects.

    We have serious doubts this function can really increase server security:
    1) Plesk has built-in protection against brute-force on login – it will lock the login form. So no one can try multiple attempts
    2) Arbitrary login name adds very little guess-complexity to a proper password. If you have concerns for your login brute-forced – add another 5-7 characters into your password and feel safe.

    As changed login name is still very likely to be some sort of vocabulary word or derived from your other account name – this function would only give a false sense of better security. Your security strength is in complex password, not in a complex login name. If you have one good password, you don’t need to treat login as your “second password” – one good password is enough.

    As for concerns that default password requirement is set in “weak”, that fail2ban module is not…

    it does not really matter PCI requirements state that vendor supplied default user accounts must be changed before any system can be put into production. We need to be be able to change this from admin

    in ubuntu hhvm runs so easily along side plesk it seems a shame not to.

    Andy Bird commented  · 

    While it is very easy to install hhvm into plesk having this be default would be great

    Varnish is a caching proxy that simply serves 'pre-compiled' pages directly from RAM without having to be generated through nginx/apache/php leading to a massive reduction in page load times on the second and subsequent visits.
    While integrating it into a control panel will be tricky it should be possible and would be a powerful addition to plesk.

    Andy Bird commented  · 

    This is a shame and would have made plesk very attractive.

    Andy Bird commented  · 

    you can install varnish along side plesk.. you need to manually allocate the IP to nginx using the Listen command and reserver an IP for varnish. It should be simple to automate this in plesk

    Hi all, Thanks for your input, really appreciate this! As you know, in Plesk Onyx 17.8 we made a significant improvement that allows you to use several cloud storages or even SFTP for remote backups. In Plesk Onyx 17.9 we will continue to improve Plesk Backup Manager in general and Flexible Backup Scheduler Manager in particular.

    Based on the initial description and comments I can highlight 3 scenarios in the scope of this request:

    #1. Keep Daily & Weekly & Monthly backups at the same time: (Example: 2 weeks of daily backups + weekly backups by each Monday)

    #2. Backup to different storages (like daily to FTP and monthly to Google Drive)

    #3. Multiple Storages of the same type (like 2 different FTP servers)

    ID in our Issue Tracker: PPM-1701
    -DL

    The only thing cpanel does better than plesk is the backup wizzArd where with 2 clicks you can download a whole site or database. Can you add that the the above
