Plesk Obsidian 18.0.57

What’s New?

  • It is now possible to change the Plesk Administrator username.
  • The Sitejet Builder, Node.js Toolkit, and Laravel Toolkit extensions are now shipped with Plesk by default.
  • Added the Welcome Panel to make it easier for new users to quickly build websites. It offers many choices to create a website with just one click (like Sitejet, WordPress, Laravel, Node.js, and more). The panel pops up for users who just got hosting with a ready-to-use domain or picked Blank website or Upload files when creating a website. If they close the Welcome Panel, they can still find all the website-making options under the Create Website button on the domain card.

  • The latest update of the DNS integration for Cloudflare extension got the following new features:

    • Added the ability to remove a domain from Cloudflare when removing it from Plesk.
    • Added the option to enable/disable export of NS records from Plesk to Cloudflare.

Linux

  • Plesk will now compare and show Time To First Byte (TTFB) before and after optimizations made by Performance Booster (Tools & Settings > Performance Booster (under “General Settings”)). The TTFB comparison helps to estimate the achieved performance speedup for a website.
  • Debian 12 is now supported.
  • Until September 2024 (the Extended Support end date), Plesk continues to deliver new versions of Plesk Obsidian for Ubuntu 18.04. It includes delivering new features and security updates if they do not contradict the software delivered by the OS vendor.

    We strongly recommend using Extended Support from the OS vendor, which is called Ubuntu Pro, until you upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 or migrate to another supported OS.

    Note: If Ubuntu Pro is not used, Plesk is not responsible for any functional or security issues caused by the outdated software from the OS vendor.

  • Prepared a script to automate dist-upgrade from Ubuntu 18 to Ubuntu 20.

    Learn how to dist-upgrade to Ubuntu 20.

Windows

  • Remote PostgreSQL database servers are now supported. It is now possible to use them to manage, back up, and restore databases.

    Note: The size of remote PostgreSQL databases is now calculated and added to the disk usage statistics.

  • .NET 8.0 is now supported.

Feature Improvements

  • Buttons on the “Adding New Domain” and “Install an Application” drawers now support the Vimium Chrome extension. This improvement makes it possible to create a website with a desired appication using only a keyboard and hotkeys.
  • Aligned the view and layout of the domain list in Service Provider view with that of Dynamic List in Power User view:

    • The “Domain” column now shows favicons, the “Copy domain name” links, and reflects domains’ hosting types (“forwarding” or “no hosting”).
    • Added the “Status” column, which shows a domain’s status (active, suspended, or disabled).
    • Added the “File Manager”, “Mail Accounts”, “Databases”, and “Hosting Settings” buttons. These buttons provide quick access to the corresponding menus. The exact set of buttons depend on a domain’s configuration.
    • The “Setup Date”, “Expiration Date”, and “Rank Tracker” (the SEO Toolkit extension feature) columns are now hidden by default. To show them on the domain list, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

      [domainManagement]
      showColumnSetupDate = true ; shows the "Setup Date" column
      showColumnExpirationDate = true ; shows the "Expiration Date" column
      showExtensionsColumns = true ; shows the "Rank Tracker" column 
      
  • Added the “Disk Usage” and “Traffic” columns to Dynamic List in Power User view. Using the columns, it is also possible to sort domains by used disk space and generated traffic.
  • The dropdown menu with a domain status (active, suspended, or disabled) now shows a hint with a link to the documentation, which describes these statuses.
  • The latest update of the Sitejet Builder extension got the following improvements and new features:

    • In the domain card a comment now explains when a website has been published the last time.
    • New Website Template: https://www.template-estator.de.rs/.
    • New Website Template: Johanna James.
    • We updated the Icon Library, offering hundreds of new icons including icons for X (formerly Twitter).
    • The Collections Manager was completely redesigned for a better experience.
    • We added many more languages to translate websites.
  • In the latest update of the Node.js Toolkit, the Passenger module for nginx and Apache is now disabled by default and will be enabled on the first activation of a Node.js application.

Windows

  • If Plesk has Microsoft SQL Server and a locally installed MariaDB 10.6 as an external database server with the localhost as its hostname, it is now possible to select MariaDB (localhost) from a dropdown menu when creating a database. (PPPM-14077)
  • It is again possible to enable “Redirect to an external mail server with the IP address” for a domain. (PPPM-14200)

Plesk Obsidian 18.0.56

What’s New?

  • Starting from Plesk Obsidian 18.0.56, the Sitejet Builder extension is installed by default. If for some reason, you want to disable the extension, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [extensions]
    blacklist = plesk-sitejet
    
  • Starting from Plesk Obsidian 18.0.57 (November 21), the Laravel Toolkit and Node.js Toolkit extensions are installed by default. If for some reason you want to disable the extensions, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [extensions]
    blacklist = laravel,nodejs
    
  • The SSL It! extension now supports DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE) that ensures reliable encryption for email transport. When a Let’s Encrypt certificate is being issued, TLSA DNS records of email services will now automatically contain information about the certificate.
  • It is now possible to change the default DKIM selector to a custom one for a single domain or all new domains hosted on the server.

    You specify a custom DKIM selector for a domain in the domain’s mail settings. To specify a custom DKIM selector for all new domains, add lines of the following pattern to the panel.ini file:

    [mail]
    dkimDefaultSelector = newselector
    
  • We are glad to inform you that the DNS Integration for Cloudflare extension is production-ready. Empower your experience with simplified DNS synchronization, enhanced website security, effortless subdomain creation, and smoother workflows. Use Cloudflare CDN, which distributes content around the world to speed up websites.

    • Connect your existing Cloudflare account to Plesk.
    • Import DNS records from Cloudflare to Plesk.
    • Export DNS records from Plesk to Cloudflare (both manually and automatically).
    • Enable/disable Proxy Mode.

Linux

  • Returned support for Ubuntu 18.04 until September 2024.

    Until September 2024 (the Extended Support end date), Plesk continues to deliver new versions of Plesk Obsidian for Ubuntu 18.04. It includes delivering new features and security updates if they do not contradict the software delivered by the OS vendor.

    • Plesk continues to accept technical support requests from Plesk Obsidian on supported product versions on Ubuntu 18.04 without any restrictions.
    • Plesk reserves the right to warn Ubuntu 18.04 administrators about risks of an outdated OS using any channels including in-product notifications.

    We would like to make the following recommendations to our customers:

  • To enhance security, Apache now listens to only the loopback IP address (also called localhost) when Apache runs with nginx as a reverse proxy.

    This feature is turned on by default on new Plesk installations. To enable it on existing installations, run the following CLI command: plesk bin apache --listen-on-localhost true. For information on the feature, see the KB article.

Feature Improvements

  • Improved the logic of the Monitoring button shown on the domain card:

    • The Monitoring button is not displayed when it is not needed (a user chose to monitor a website themselves and did not connect the website to 360 Monitoring).
    • Connecting a website to 360 Monitoring brings back the Monitoring button to the domain card.
    • If a website is connected to 360 Monitoring, clicking the Monitoring button now opens the 360 Monitoring data of the website.
  • The icon of the Monitoring button on the domain card is now dynamic: it reflects the current status of Monitoring for a domain.

Linux

  • alt-php handlers are no longer misleadingly marked as “Outdated” in Plesk. On the contrary, they are supported and actively developed by CloudLinux.
  • Decreased the disk space the ModSecurity database consumes.

Deprecated and Removed Items

  • The following SDK functionality will be deprecated and removed in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.57. These are legacy functions and classes exposed in the pm.php file:

    • Functions: pm_alert(), pm_warning(), pm_comm_button(), pm_get_gpc(), pm_isset_gpc(), pm_set_gpc(), pm_get_locale(), pm_go_to(), pm_go_to_uplevel(), pm_ldate(), pm_ltime(), pm_ldatetime(), pm_link_button(), pm_lmsg(), pm_plesk_mail(), pm_psaerror(), pm_safetyhtml(), pm_size_b_printing(), pm_size_kb_printing(), pm_size_mb_printing(), pm_size_pretty_printing(), pm_topnote(), pm_util_exec(), pm_util_io_exec().
    • Classes: pm_errHandler, pm_Checker, pm_cList, pm_Form, pm_CustomButton, pm_CustomButtonManager.

    We would like to make the following recommendations:

    • If you have Plesk extensions published in the Plesk Extension Catalog, then we have already checked that the extensions do not use those legacy functions and classes.
    • If you have Plesk extensions not published in the Plesk Extension Catalog, check if your extensions use the modern SDK.

Fixed Product Issues

  • Domains > domain > FTP > FTP account name again opens the Hosting Settings drawer of the system user. (PPPM-14140)

  • When a user tries deleting a directory they have no permission to read, Plesk now shows an actual error message instead of an error message placeholder. (PPPM-14128)

Plesk Obsidian 18.0.55

What’s New?

  • Starting from Plesk Obsidian 18.0.55, the Sitejet Builder extension will be installed by default for all new Plesk installations. If for some reason you want to disable the feature, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [extensions]
    blacklist = plesk-sitejet
    

    We are constantly working on the extension, so the latest update got the following new features:

    • Clicking Publish now automatically saves the website. This makes sure that the latest version of the website will be published.
    • Added new website templates: MakeIt Agency and LumeDeAqua.
    • Added support for website migrations, making it possible to migrate Sitejet websites between Plesk servers.
    • We’ve given our template selection a stylish makeover to make it even more enjoyable to browse.
    • Fixed a critical issue where some pages were not being indexed by search engines.
    • We now allow cross-origin requests for www-prefixed domains allowing forms to work properly.
    • In our continuous effort to improve performance, we’ve made the publishing process even faster.
  • During the update to Plesk Obsidian 18.0.56 and later, the Sitejet Builder extension will be enabled by default for all existing Plesk installations.
  • We are thrilled to introduce the Flexible Backups feature, which enables you to do the following:

    • Establish multiple backup schedules with different destinations at once to get a flexible and robust backup policy.

    Establishing multiple backup schedules at once is a part of a license to the Backup to Cloud Pro extension. The extension is included to Plesk Hosting Pack.

    • Schedule frequent (several times a day or even on hourly) backups for critical data with one click from the Plesk interface.

    By default, the ability to schedule hourly backups is only enabled for Plesk administrators. To enable resellers and customers to do so as well, go to Tools & Settings > Backup Manager, click Settings, select the “Allow customer and reseller accounts to schedule hourly backups” checkbox, and then click OK.

  • Backing up only databases. Previously, it was possible to back up databases together with files only.

  • To ensure better protection of emails from unauthorized changes and impersonation, we added support for 2048-bit DKIM keys. Starting from Plesk Obsidian 18.0.55, such keys will be used for all new Plesk installations by default.

    • To enable the feature on existing domains, follow the steps described in the KB article.
    • To switch back to 1024-bit DKIM keys, as a Plesk administrator, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

      [mail]
      dkimKeySize = 1024
      
  • On the domain card, we added the Performance Booster icon that indicates if the website’s performance can be optimized at the moment. The feature is supported in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.55 and later by default. To enable the feature in Plesk 18.0.54 and earlier, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [ext-performance-booster]
    domainButtonEnabled=true
    
  • Performance Booster can now detect custom gzip-related directives and suggest applying the optimal configuration excluding these directives.
  • In the Firewall extension, we added indicators to the firewall rules’ descriptions. These indicators show you if a rule allows all traffic or denies some of it.
  • Starting from Plesk Obsidian 18.0.55, Plesk can automatically identify the following:

    • Technologies (PHP, Ruby, Python, .NET, Node.js, Composer).
    • Top PHP frameworks (Laravel, Symfony, CodeIgniter, CakePHP, Yii).
    • CMS (WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, PrestaShop, TYPO3).

    In Dynamic List view, Plesk adds a corresponding icon to the domain card so that you can figure out which application is installed on a domain at glance. In case Plesk has a matching tool for the used technology (for example, WordPress, Joomla!, .NET, Node.js, Laravel Toolkits, Composer), you can open the corresponding configuration page by clicking the icon. In addition, Plesk published Wappspector, an open-source CLI utility based on this functionality. The utility can analyze the file structure of a web hosting server and identify the frameworks and CMS used on websites that are hosted on the server. For more information on Wappspector, see our Github repository.

  • (Plesk for Windows) Added support for the DNSSEC extension that allows signing DNS zones. DNSSEC stands for Domain Name System Security Extensions and represents a set of DNS protocol extensions that were introduced by IETF with the goal of signing DNS data to secure the domain name resolving process. Please pay attention that if you want to secure Plesk services with DANE, you have to sign a DNS zone using DNSSEC.
  • (Plesk for Windows) It is now possible to load the user profile for IIS application pools. That way you ensure better security and isolations of web applications.

    In the Plesk interface, you can enable the feature using the “Load user profile” option on the following pages:

    • Tools & Settings > IIS Application Pool
    • Domains > Domain_name > Hosting & DNS > Dedicated IIS Application Pool for Website
    • Service Plans > Service_Plan_(or_addon)_name > Performance
    • Customers > Customer_name > IIS Application Pool
    • Resellers > Reseller_name > IIS Application Pool

    Via the CLI, you can enable the feature by adding the -load-user-profile flag option to the following commands:

    • The whole Plesk server: plesk bin server_pref --set-iis-app-pool-settings -load-user-profile true
    • Service plans: plesk bin domain_template -u <service_plan_name> -load-user-profile true
    • Add-on service plan: plesk bin domain_addon_service_plan -c <addon_name> -iis-app-pool true -load-user-profile true
    • Per domain: plesk bin domain -u example.com -load-user-profile true
    • Customers/Resellers options: plesk bin client_pref --set-iis-app-pool-settings <customer_name> -iis-app-pool-turned-on true -load-user-profile true
    • Customers only: plesk bin client -u <customer_name> -iis-app-pool true -load-user-profile true
  • In March 2024, Active List view will be deactivated in domain cards. All customers will be automatically switched to Dynamic List view. See Feature Deprecation Plan for details.

Feature Improvements

  • In Dynamic List view, made a number of improvements to domain cards:

    • Based on your numerous requests, we colored and redesigned the icon set in the domain cards. That way you can find the desired feature with less cognitive load.
    • We renovated the “Statistics” part of the domain cards:

      • Moved the “Data Transfer”, “FTP Transfer report”, “Disk space and traffic”, and “Web Statistics SSL/TLS” links to the new “More statistics” drop-down list.
      • The “Open in web” and “Preview” buttons now appear when you hover the cursor over the website’s screenshot.
    • Improved the UI of the “Hosting Settings” drawer.
    • The PHP Composer extension button is now hidden if PHP is disabled in the domain’s settings.
  • (Plesk for Linux) We prepared Plesk QCOW2 images based on AlmaLinux 9 to replace those based on CentOS 7 because it reaches EOL on June 30, 2024.

  • Added a more specific error message for cases when Website Log Check detects the “403 Forbidden” error related to the .htaccess and .htpasswd Apache files. (PPPM-14089)
  • Removing domains with the “Send from domain IP addresses and use domain names in SMTP greeting” outgoing mail mode selected no longer results in overuse of server resources. (PPPM-13851)

  • When switching a domain to the “Website” hosting type, Plesk now shows the confirmation message. (PPPM-14105)

Plesk Obsidian 18.0.54

What’s New?

  • We are excited to introduce the Sitejet Builder extension, our new website builder for Plesk powered by WebPros. This extension is provided free of charge, allowing you and your clients to effortlessly create modern and stunning websites without any coding skills. Here are some of the key features of our new website builder:

    • Drag & Drop Website Builder
    • 140+ Website Templates
    • 120+ Section Templates
    • Responsive Settings (Flexbox)
    • AI Text Generator
    • SEO Settings
    • Dynamic Content (for example, Blog Feature)
    • E-Commerce
    • Multi-language websites
    • Free Stock Photos & Videos
    • Image Editing
    • Website Backups
    • Full Design Flexibility (HTML, CSS, JS)
    • And many more…

    Once installed, the Sitejet Builder is available in the setup wizard when adding a new domain, but also visible for all other domains on the domain card under ”Install Application”, and also as an option for the “Add Domain” action.

    We would love to hear your feedback about this extension at feedback@plesk.com.

  • Added the ability to tune the MySQL/MariaDB server performance in Tools & Settings > Performance Booster (under “General Settings”).
  • Added the ability to add Transport Layer Security Authentication (TLSA) DNS records to domains’ DNS zones in Plesk. Such records are most commonly used to implement DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities (DANE).
  • Added the ability to back up databases separately from other website content by splitting the “User files and databases” checkbox into separate “Databases” and “User files” checkboxes in Backup Manager.
  • Added the ability to schedule hourly backups in Backup Manager. To enable the feature, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [pmm]
    allowHourlyTask = on
    

    By default, the ability to schedule hourly backups is only enabled for Plesk administrators. To enable resellers and customers to do so as well, go to Tools & Settings > Backup Manager, click Settings > select the “Allow customer and reseller accounts to schedule hourly backups” checkbox, and then click OK.

  • Based on Beta users feedback we are glad to announce that our tool to convert your CentsOS 7 server to AlmaLinux 8 is now Production ready! The ready to use CLI tool is available in our GitHub repository.
  • Added a number of features to the DNS integration for Cloudflare extension (the extension is still in beta).

    • The extension now allows to enable & disable CDN (proxy mode).
    • Plesk administrator can now manage all domains on the server and enable/disable the integration for the domains owned by customers.
  • In Plesk for Windows, it is now possible to integrate your server with 360 Monitoring, a new tool present in the Plesk 360 cloud service. 360 Monitoring brings a couple of useful features, for example, monitoring of website availability, various notification channels, and more.

Feature Improvements

  • It is now possible to set Dark Mode by default in Plesk. To do so, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [branding]
    theme = "dark"
    
  • We made a number of improvements to the way icons are placed on the domain card in Dynamic list view:
    • Changed the way icons are aligned to grid.
    • Limited the number of icons in a row to three.
    • Increased the icon size from 16px to 24px. These changes make the domain card easier to read, and help you locate specific icons more quickly regardless of your viewport size.
  • In Dynamic List view, we merged the “Hosting Settings” and “Web Hosting Access” into a single drawer accessible right from the domain card.
  • Made a number of improvements to Dynamic List view:

    • When set to “On a separate page”, you can now see websites’ root folders. To enable the feature, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

      [dynamicList] showColumnHostingLocation = on

    • When set to “In an expanded row”, clicking the “Expand all/Collapse all” button now completely expands or collapses the entire list of domains and subdomains.
    • Removed the separate “Hosting Settings” page for domain aliases. Controls for most settings can now be found right on the alias card. The option to rename a domain alias was moved to the hamburger menu in the top right corner of the alias card.
  • Added support for nightly packages in Plesk on RHEL 9 and its derivatives to the “SOGo Webmail” extension.
  • Added the -auto-confirm-this-may-lock-me-out-of-the-server option to the plesk ext firewall command line utility. The option can be used with the --apply and --enable commands, and removes the need to run the --confirm command in a separate SSH session when applying a new firewall configuration.

    This option must only be used for automated Plesk deployments. Using this option may result in being permanently locked out of the server if the applied firewall configuration is misconfigured.

Fixed Product Issues

  • Running the plesk bin site --show-php-settings or plesk bin domain_template --show-php-settings commands now shows the PHP settings correctly. (PPPM-14009)

  • Switching to a different domain on the “PHP Settings” page now correctly shows the PHP handler for the latter domain. (PPPM-14041)
  • Searching for the name of a removed domain using the search bar no longer results in errors. (PPPM-14013)
  • Restoring a MariaDB database from a backup now aborts and shows an error if the backup cannot be restored correctly because it was created on a MariaDB with an earlier version. (PPPM-14012)
  • The contents of a backup file are now shown in Backup Manager if the <storages> section of the backup_info XML file is empty. (PPPM-14045)

  • Postfix no longer fails on Plesk servers without the mariadb-connector-c package package installed. (PPPM-13724)
  • Incremental backups created in the remote FTP storage no longer have the same size as full backups. (PPPM-13957)
  • Creating a backup in the remote storage no longer fails with the “Repository error: The volumes number is not equal to expected number” error under specific circumstances. (PPPM-14023)
  • It is now possible to remove TXT DNS records containing values in uppercase using the plesk bin dns command line utility together with the -txt and/or -domain options. (PPPM-13976)

  • It is now possible to remove the firewall rule that was added most recently. (EXTPLESK-4720)

What’s New?

  • It is now possible to use Hosting Plan Exporter to export reference hosting plans from one Plesk server and spread them to other servers via the CLI. That way you can keep hosting plans on your Plesk servers unified and up-to-date, as well as quickly deliver them to a newly deployed Plesk server.

    To export several hosting plans via the CLI, run the following command:

    plesk ext hp-exporter --export -plan 'name1, name2...' 
    

    To import hosting plans from a local file, remote storage, or a URL via the CLI, run the following command:

    plesk ext hp-exporter --import -config path_to_source
    
  • To prevent temporary domains from being used for phishing and fraud, we added a banner that appears the first time you visit a temporary domain.

  • Based on your feedback, we have published the new 0.2.0 version for the public beta CLI script that in-place converts your Plesk server on CentOS 7 to AlmaLinux 8. We recommend that you use the script to convert your Plesk server and check the result before CentOS EOL on June 30, 2024. That way we will be able to take into account the specifics of your server’s configuration in the stable release.

    Please report any issues related to the conversion on GitHub. We have assigned a developer to process your feedback there. While this script is in beta, we do not provide help with the conversion via Plesk Support.

What’s New?

  • (Plesk for Linux) It is now possible to block countries using the Plesk Firewall. The feature works out of the box.

    By default, the feature uses the free version of the DB-IP geolocation database. You may want to use geolocation databases from MaxMind (GeoLite2 or GeoIP2), for example, because they are updated more frequently than DB-IP. GeoLite2 is free, while GeoIP2 is paid, but both require a license key. Learn how to switch from DB-IP to MaxMind.

  • (Plesk for Linux) We are thrilled to introduce the websites’ performance optimization feature. At the moment, it is possible to optimize PHP and nginx settings for one or more websites.

    The feature is available in Tools & Settings > Performance Booster (under “General Settings”). In the next Plesk versions, we aim to introduce MySQL settings optimization and some tweaks to the existing settings for an even greater speed boost.

  • (Plesk for Linux) CentOS 7 reaches end of life on June 30, 2024. We have prepared a public beta CLI script that in-place converts your Plesk server on CentOS 7 to AlmaLinux 8. You can use the script to convert your Plesk server and check the result before CentOS EOL.

    Please report any issues related to the conversion on GitHub and/or send us feedback to beta-extensions@plesk.com. While this script is in beta, we do not provide help with the conversion via Plesk Support.

  • MariaDB 10.11 is now supported. It is the latest “long-term support” version from the vendor.
  • Plesk now supports secure MySQL connections. The Plesk administrator can now connect to a remote database securely via SSL/TLS and prohibit using a non-secure connection.

  • (Plesk for Linux) Ruby 2.7, 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2 are now supported.

Feature Improvements

  • Updated the Node.js Toolkit extension (former Node.js) to version 2.3.0:

    • Added quick access to File Manager.
    • You can now call npm/yarn commands from the “Run Node.js commands” tab in the extension interface.
    • You can now install/remove Node.js versions available on a Plesk for Linux server in the extension interface.
    • Renamed the Node.js extension to Node.js Toolkit.
  • Added the “Ruby” button to the “Adding New Domain” drawer. After a domain with the selected “Ruby” option is created, Plesk offers the necessary toolkit to manage the domain with Ruby right away. It is now easy to enable Ruby at the same time as adding a domain.
  • Modified the “Install Application” drawer:
    • Moved the “Install Application” button to the bottom of a domain card.
    • Moved the “Git” and “Website Importing” buttons from the drawer to a domain card.
    • After an application was installed on a domain, the corresponding application buttons now remain in the drawer.
  • Improved visibility of the global search bar.
  • Global search now shows the most recent results at the top.
  • To bring Plesk in line with the evolving industry-standard vocabulary, added aliases of the following CLI options:

    The dns utility

    • --set-master > --set-primary
    • --set-slave > --set-secondary

    The service_plan utility

    -dns_zone_type (master|slave) > -dns_zone_type (primary|secondary)

    Note: This improvement does not affect existing integrations that use the old CLI options. They continue to work.

Linux

  • Converted the Plesk Firewall module to an extension. It is now possible to update the firewall separately from Plesk.
  • Converted the Premium Antivirus for Servers component to an extension. It is now possible to update the antivirus separately from Plesk.
  • It is now possible to clone MySQL databases that have stored procedure triggers with DEFINER.

Windows

  • MyLittleAdmin is scheduled for removal in June 2023 (Plesk Obsidian 18.0.53).

    We have prepared a KB article with the instructions on how to download, install, and configure local database clients (for example, HeidiSQL and SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)) and added the link to the article to the Plesk interface.

    The Plesk administrator can replace the default link with a custom one via the panel.ini file:

    [databaseManagement] 
    features.dbclient.info = "https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/13302777933719" ; the default link

  • The underscore is now used as a delimiter when a custom prefix is set for database user names in Tools & Settings > Database Hosting Preferences (under “Applications & Databases”). (PPPM-13945)
  • Passwords of a Plesk administrator account and an internal email address set in the Plesk administrator profile are no longer in sync: changing one does not change the other. (PPP-57040), (PPP-60820)
  • Reinstalling an application via the Application Catalog no longer fails with an HTTP error 500. (PPP-60954)
  • The Plesk firewall rules (including custom ones) can now be backed up and restored. (PPPM-12676)

  • Adding or removing mail forwarding via XML API now works. (PPPM-13933)
  • A Plesk administrator account password can now contain up to 255 characters. Previously the password longer than 158 characters caused an error. (PPPM-13965)
  • The “SSH/Shell access” button is again shown for a domain whose owner is allowed SSH access. (PPPM-9970)
  • It is now possible to access files in password-protected directories when “Smart static files processing” and “Proxy mode” are enabled in the “Apache & nginx” settings. (PPPM-13942)
  • Customers with Plesk on the EOL Debian can now update Plesk to the latest availiable version using the plesk installer upgrade <version> ---source <source> command. (PI-763)

Windows

  • If the “Keep secured” feature is enabled, it automatically renews an expired SSL/TLS certificate for FTP in IIS. (PPP-60650)
  • Creating an address book in Horde no longer fails with the “$name must be a string” error. (PPPM-13919)
  • The CLI now supports the set subcommand of the -forwarding-addresses option of the mail utility. (PPPM-13950)
  • It is now possible to create a mail user in SmarterMail 100.0.8495 or later. (PPPM-13966)

Future Plans

  • In the nearest future, we plan to switch PHP used by Plesk to PHP 8.2. This is because security support for PHP 8.0 will end in November 2023. If you are running any custom extensions, you will need to update them to support PHP 8.2 to avoid potential issues.

    This change is currently scheduled to take place with the release of Plesk Obsidian 18.0.53 (early June 2023).

What’s New?

  • Introducing Dark Mode in Plesk for when you want to rest your eyes in a low-light environment. Dark Mode can be enabled by clicking the ‘crescent’ icon in the upper corner of the screen.

    Note: Dark Mode in Plesk uses cookies and works on per session basis.

  • We are glad to introduce the Sophos Anti-Virus for Servers extension. The extension supports Plesk for Linux, including ARM-based servers. Here’s how it helps to protect you from malicious emails:

    • Scans incoming and outgoing mail.
    • Scans all archive and compressed archive file formats.
    • Scans file formats that contain an executable stub that automatically decompresses the body of the file.
    • Rejects malicious and potentially dangerous e-mail messages.
    • Features CX-Mail, a context-aware setting that enables more aggressive detection rules specifically designed for email traffic.
    • Automatically updates virus signatures.

    We would love to hear your feedback about this extension at feedback@plesk.com.

  • We are glad to introduce the production version of the SOGo Webmail extension. Added the following improvements to the extension:

    • It is now possible to customize the service configuration templates.
    • The SOGo database is now backed up daily.
    • The extension has been translated into 32 languages.
  • We are glad to introduce the beta version of the DNS integration for Cloudflare extension. The extension automates the provisioning of DNS records from Plesk to Cloudflare, simplifying this routine to a couple of clicks.

    • Connect your existing Cloudflare account to Plesk.
    • Import DNS records from Cloudflare to Plesk.
    • Export DNS records from Plesk to Cloudflare both manually and automatically.

    We would love to hear your feedback about this extension at beta-extensions@plesk.com.

  • The Website Log Check is no longer in beta. Learn more about Website Log Check. To enable the feature, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [websitesDiagnostic]
    enabled = true
    
  • We are glad to introduce the result of our research into the possibility to deploy a high-availability Plesk cluster using two new features:

    We built a proof-of-concept high-availability Plesk cluster with active and passive nodes. Read the step by step guide and testing result for such a cluster.

    We would love to hear your feedback about these features and the high-availability cluster on the Plesk forum.

  • Added the ability to recalculate disk space and traffic usage data for individual domains to the Plesk interface.

Feature Improvements

  • Classic list view has been updated to appear and function more closely to Dynamic list view, and also renamed to “Dynamic list view - show websites on a separate page”. If you used Classic list view in the past, “Dynamic list view - show websites on a separate page” should provide a similar, but improved experience.
  • Made a number of improvements to Dynamic list view:
    • Updated the layout of the list of hosted domains in Dynamic list view to make it easier to tell domains from subdomains and to make managing large numbers of domains easier in Dynamic list view.
    • Added the ability to search for domains to Dynamic list view.
    • Updated the Dynamic list view tour to highlight the changes and improvements made to Dynamic list view in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.51.
    • Changed the icon of the “View on a separate page” button for better legibility, and also added a “Copy domain name” button in Dynamic list view.
    • Added the Install application button in the Dynamic list view, under “Dev Tools”. Clicking it opens a drawer from which you can install web applications, such as Laravel, Node.js, and Ruby, on your domain. The list of available applications depends on what extensions are installed in Plesk.
  • Reworked the mail service options for individual domains. The available options are now “the domain can both send and receive email”, “the domain can send, but not receive email”, and “the domain can neither send nor receive email”. Selecting the latter option also removes all existing mailboxes for the domain together with all incoming and outgoing mail.
  • Updated the links on Plesk error pages to avoid confusion.
  • To bring Plesk in line with the evolving industry-standard vocabulary, the following changes were made to the terms used in Plesk:
    • “Master DNS server/zone” > “Primary DNS server/zone”
    • “Slave DNS server/zone” > “Secondary DNS server/zone”
  • Illustrations in Plesk have been redone in a unified style for consistency, visual integrity, and emotional response based on our target audience opinions and identified by tests.
  • Requests from the Plesk Screenshot Service to websites hosted in Plesk are now marked by the custom “Plesk screenshot bot” User-Agent header.
  • Plesk Premium Antivirus has been converted from a Plesk component to an extension.

Fixed Product Issues

  • Updated the default DMARC DNS TXT record to make it RFC compliant. (PPPM-13892)
  • Restoring from a backup stored in remote FTP storage now fails with an error instead of hanging indefinitely if the backup is invalid. (PPPM-13925)
  • Information about the availability of WP Toolkit Deluxe for the installed Plesk license can now be found in Tools & Settings > License Information. (PPP-60387)
  • It is now again possible to retrieve the list of all hosted databases via the REST API “databases” endpoint. (PPPM-13917)
  • Removed email forwarding addresses no longer reappear after restoring from a backup. (PPPM-13862)
  • It is now possible to create certificate signing requests with key sizes other than 1024 and 2048 bits via the RPC API. (PPPM-13918)

Linux

  • Removing PHP 8 via Plesk Installer no longer results in an error when browsing Tools & Settings > PHP Settings. (PPPM-13850)
  • Websites using PHP 8.1 and 8.2 with the PHP-FPM handler no longer randomly throw “HTTP 503 Service Unavailable” errors due to the handler process experiencing a segmentation fault. (PPPM-13872)
  • Enabling debug logging in Plesk no longer makes the Plesk GUI inaccessible with the “HTTP 502 Bad Gateway” error. (PPPM-13885)
  • Entering a custom TTL value for a PTR record in Plesk DNS settings now results in the custom value correctly taking effect. (PPPM-13776)
  • Running the plesk repair all -y or plesk sbin fsmng --fix-plesk-packages commands on a Plesk server with the Imunify360 extension installed and the default OS locale changed no longer fails with the “ERROR:’ascii’ codec can’t decode byte 0xc5 in position 1934: ordinal not in range(128)” error. (PPPM-13860)
  • Running the plesk repair mail command on a Plesk server using Postfix as the mail server no longer enables the mail service if it was intentionally disabled. (PPPM-13859)
  • Websites using PHP 8.1 and 8.2 with OPcache enabled no longer randomly throw “HTTP 503 Service Unavailable” errors due to child processes terminating themselves unexpectedly. (PPPM-13876)
  • On Plesk servers using Postfix as the mail server, securing mail with a TLS/SSL certificate may fail if multiple different end of line sequences (for example, both “\r\n” and “\n”) are used in the certificate body. (PPPM-13887)
  • Running the plesk repair installation command on a Plesk server with phpMyAdmin installed no longer breaks phpMyAdmin configuration. (PPPM-13902)
  • Watchdog will now monitor the correct ploop device after host node reboot if Plesk is installed in an OpenVZ 7/Virtuozzo 7 container. (PPP-57361)

Windows

  • Removing all registered database servers from Tools & Settings > Database servers no longer makes it impossible to add new ones. (PPPM-13893)
  • It is now again possible to change a website’s document root directory via the RPC API. (PPPM-13915)
  • Exporting a database to PDF in phpMyAdmin no longer fails with the “HTTP 500 Server Error” error. (PPPM-13823)

Future Plans

  • In the nearest future, we plan to switch PHP used by Plesk to PHP 8.2. This is because security support for PHP 8.0 will end in November 2023. If you are running any custom extensions, you will need to update them to support PHP 8.2 to avoid potential issues.

    This change is currently scheduled to take place with the release of Plesk Obsidian 18.0.53 (early June 2023).

  • In the nearest future, we plan to stop shipping MyLittleAdmin with Plesk. This is because MyLittleAdmin is not in active development, and has known security issues. Instead, Plesk will provide links to downloadable clients and instructions on how to connect the client to the Plesk server.

    This change is currently scheduled to take place with the release of Plesk Obsidian 18.0.53 (early June 2023).

Plesk Obsidian 18.0.50

What’s New?

We are glad to release the anniversary version Plesk Obsidian 18.0.50. To all our customers, we thank you for your loyalty!

We have prepared a small gift for you. Are you intrigued? Follow the cat paw prints in Tools & Settings > About Plesk (under “Plesk”).

  • Added support for queue workers to the Laravel Toolkit extension. Laravel website owners can now manage queue jobs out of the box: schedule, monitor, remove, rerun, and so on.

    To enable queues in your Laravel project, follow the instructions.

  • Customers can now create database users on the default server and servers where they already have databases (even if customers do not have the “Database server selection” permission).
  • Introduced the new SSL It! main screen, which offers a bird’s view of all domains, installed certificates (if any), the certificates’ expiration dates, and certificate authorities. It is now also possible to filter domains by status (valid, expired, self-signed, and so on) and certificate authority.
  • In the Git extension, added the ability to select users who can access a local repository via HTTP/HTTPS.

    Previously, only the system user had access to all repositories in a subscription. You can now select additional users when creating a local repository or changing the settings of an existing one. These users can pull and push to a local repository via HTTP/HTTPS using their credentials.

  • The Git extension now correctly handles moving domains between subscriptions and places the Git directory to the appropriate subscription afterward.

    Note Moving domains between subscriptions changes the plesk-git directory password because it must be synced with the subscription’s system user password.

  • Due to increased phishing attacks, creating websites with publicly resolvable temporary domain names is available only for paid licenses from now on.

Windows

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2022 is now fully supported. Plesk can now detect Microsoft SQL Server 2022 installed locally and allows to create and manage user databases. It is now also possible to do the following:
    • Use Microsoft SQL Server 2022 as a remote database server.
    • Install Microsoft SQL Server 2022 locally using Plesk Installer.
    • Import and export Microsoft SQL Server 2022 databases via the Plesk interface.

Feature Improvements

  • New domains now sign outgoing mail with DKIM. This improvement protects against email spoofing.

    DKIM helps to verify that an email was indeed sent from the domain and no one tampered with the email content in transit. Previously, DKIM was not enabled by default for domains. Spoofed email messages with ‘From address’ forged to display a Plesk domain could pass DKIM and DMARC validation and were not filtered. New domains now have the “Use DKIM spam protection system to sign outgoing email messages” option selected by default.

    Note: This improvement works only for new domains that have their DNS and mail hosting in Plesk.

  • New domains now use the DMARC quarantine policy by default. This improvement protects outgoing mail against email spoofing.

    The DMARC policy defines how the receiver should treat email messages depending on the results of DKIM and SPF checks. The new default DMARC policy (v=DMARC1; adkim=s; aspf=s; p=quarantine) strictly enables DKIM and SPF checks. Emails that do not pass these checks are now put in quarantine (moved to the spam folder or flagged as suspicious).

    Note: This improvement works only for new domains that have their DNS and mail hosting in Plesk.

  • When migrating to a server with a Plesk Web Admin license installed or installing the license, the previous subscription limits are now ignored and treated as unlimited.
  • Decluttered Dynamic List view and made it easier to navigate through multiple domains:
    • Introduced icons for no-hosting domain types (alias, forwarding, no hosting).
    • Removed the “Type” column.
  • Plesk now better handles domains with modern applications installed (for example, Laravel, .NET, and Node.js) while moving the domains between subscriptions.
  • SSL It! now shows recommended extensions and TLS versions in the “Settings” drawer.
  • Significantly improved backup performance for backups stored in the FTP storage: backup upload speed is now ~1.6 times faster, while CPU load decreased by a factor of two.

Linux

  • It is now possible to use Atomic Standard and Atomic Advanced ModSecurity rule sets in Plesk on RHEL 8, CloudLinux 8, AlmaLinux 8, and Rocky Linux 8. To enable these rule sets, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [modSecurity]
    ruleSet.tortix = true ; enables the Atomic Standard rule set
    ruleSet.atomic = true ; enables the Atomic Advanced rule set
    

Deprecated and Removed Items

  • VPS Optimized has been deprecated and will be removed in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.51. Learn more.

Fixed Product Issues

    To use deferred execution of custom deployment actions via the XML API, run the following requests:

    <!-- run deploy without custom deployment actions for repository "repo-example" on domain "example.com" -->
    <packet><extension><call><git><deploy><domain>example.com</domain><name>repo-example</name><no-deployment-actions/></deploy></git></call></extension></packet>
    
    <!-- only run custom deployment actions for the "repo-example" repository on domain "example.com" -->

      [passwordManagement]
      estimator = zxcvbn
    

    The feature will be enabled by default in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.45. Read more about this feature.

  • For customers, who use automatic scripts for subscriptions/customers creation the new “API 1038 error code” was added. This error code will be returned to a 3rd-party system if a used password was not accepted by Plesk so it will be possible to reinitiate the password generation process. It means that customers with a such scenario can update their scripts to reinitiate a password generation and validation process if the previous password was not accepted.
  • On Plesk servers using BIND as the DNS server, the “notify-to-soa” option is now in effect. This ensures that the NS server specified as the primary master name server for a DNS zone in the zone’s SOA record is sent NOTIFY messages. This is useful in “hidden master” scenarios where the master NS server is not listed at the registrar and does not have an NS record in the DNS zone, and a slave NS server is listed in the SOA record instead.
  • Increased the speed of website preview generation for certain websites.
  • Increased the speed of switching between domains by up to 25% while using the File Manager or the domain card.
  • When configuring a custom TTL value for a DNS record for a domain, the custom value is also propagated to the DNS zones of all of that domain’s domain aliases. (PPPM-13425)
  • Receiving one or more emails with very long subject lines no longer causes some information to not be shown in “Tools & Settings” > “Mail Queue”. (PPPM-13462)

  • Configuring or attempting to back up to a remote FTP repository hosted on the Azure Blob service no longer fails with the “(SSH_FX_OP_UNSUPPORTED)” error. (EXTPLESK-3418)
  • Perl and Python support is no longer listed as available but turned off in “Account” > “Hosting Options” if the corresponding Plesk components are not installed. (PPPM-13456)

Linux

  • Indroduced a beta version of the Laravel Toolkit extension that allows you to manage Laravel applications running on your Plesk server:

    • Scan and automatically connect Laravel websites to Laravel Toolkit. That way you can manage them using the Plesk interface.

Monitoring 2.3.0

  • It is now possible to hide the 360 Monitoring license panel, which displays the limit of websites and servers available for monitoring. To hide the license panel, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [ext-monitoring] 
    cloudShowLicensePanel = false
    
  • It is now possible to limit the number of websites 360 Monitoring monitors per server. The default limit set by the 360 Monitoring license affects multiple servers. To prevent one or more servers from using up the whole license limit, add the following lines to the panel.ini files of the servers you want to limit:

    [ext-monitoring] 
    cloudMaxWebsites = 5 ; the desired website limit
    
  • The extension now shows a warning if 360 Monitoring stops processing one of your servers (because the license limit has been reached or the server has been archived in the 360 Monitoring interface).

Git 2.0.3

  • A new method get-public-key was added to both CLI and XML API. The method generates a new SSH key for a domain if it does not already have an SSH key generated for it and displays the publik key part as the output.

    To generate a new SSH key for “example.com” via the CLI, run the following command: plesk bin extension --call git --get-public-key -domain example.com

    To generate a new SSH key for “example.com” via XML API, execute the following request: <packet><extension><call><git><get-public-key><domain>example.com</domain></get-public-key></git></call></extension></packet>

  • When logged in as a reseller, creating a git local repository no longer results in an error. (EXTGIT-205)

    [pmm]
    manageBackupsByAdminOnly = true
    

    Note that scheduled backups already configured by users other than the administrator will continue to run.

  • The “Tools & Settings” > “DNS Template” screen has been renamed to “DNS Settings”.
  • The “DNS zone serial number format” section of the “DNS Settings” > “Zone Settings [template]” has been renamed to “Advanced DNS features”.

To do so, enter them in the newly added “Additional DNS settings” field (found on the “Tools & Settings” > “DNS Settings” > “Server-wide Settings” screen). These parameters override all other server-wide parameters configured elsewhere.
  • A link to a video describing the process of managing DNS records in Plesk has been added to the “DNS Helper” wizard.
  • Kaspersky Antivirus has been converted from a Plesk component to an extension and excluded from the “Recommended” preset. As a result, the size of the Plesk distributable decreased by 35%, which will lead to faster downloads and shorter installation times. This change will not impact servers with Kaspersky Antivirus installed in any way.
  • On Plesk servers with the “Joomla! Toolkit” extension installed, the option to create a website with the latest Joomla! version installed has been added to the “Add Domain” wizard.
  • Plesk now treats cloud servers runnng on ARM processors as KVM virtualization allowing for the use of VPS license keys.

  • The default SOA Expire Value for domains created in Plesk was increased from 7 days to two weeks to avoid misleading warnings (for example, “SOA Expire Value out of recommended range”). (PPP-56007)
  • When creating a domain as a Plesk administrator and selecting the “Assign this domain to a customer” option, the list of IP addresses (shared and dedicated) available to the selected customer is now shown instead of the list of IP addresses available to the administrator. (PPPM-12040)
  • Running the plesk login command, logging in to Plesk via the generated URL, and then running the plesk login command again no longer results in an invalid URL being generated. (PPPM-13134)
  • When uploading a database dump via the “Import Dump” feature, the existing database (if it exists) is removed and then recreated if the “Recreate the database” option is enabled. (PPP-55727)
  • The pmm-ras command line utility now properly logs all required information if verbose logging is enabled in the panel.ini and pmmcli-rc files. (PPPM-13396)

Linux

  • Debian 11 is now supported, with certain limitations. You can use the dist-upgrade procedure to upgrade your OS from Debian 10 to Debian 11.

  • If an alert for “Site creation” is configured for the Plesk administrator on the “Tools & Settings” > “Notifications” page, and one or more event handlers for the “Default domain (the first domain added to a subscription) created” event have been configured on the “Tools & Settings” > “Event Manager” page, an email notification is sent to the administrator whenever a new subscription is created even if one or more event handlers return a non-zero exit code. (PPPM-13401)
  • A more comprehensible error message is now shown when trying to create a domain with an internationalized domain name containing not allowed characters in punycode (for example, emojis). (PPPM-13172)
  • Plesk Installer no longer fails when started on a server with certain versions of MariaDB installed from RPMs. (PPPM-13431)

  • The PHP updates mentioned above are the last ones for CentOS 8. For details, see Plesk Lifecycle Policy.

Let's Encrypt 2.15.0

  • According to the deprecation plan, we hide the Let’s Encrypt interface elements. This change was announced in the Let’s Encrypt 2.14.0 release. For now, you can bring back the Let’s Encrypt interface elements by adding the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [ext-letsencrypt]      
    showInterface = true
    

    On March 15, 2022 (Let’s Encrypt release 3.0.0), we completely convert the extension into the SSL It! plugin. It will no longer be possible to issue and manage Let’s Encrypt certificates without the SSL It! extension in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.22 and later.

    If your Plesk does not have the SSL It! extension installed, the Let’s Encrypt release 3.0.0 will automatically install it.

  • Removed the code related to the deprecated ACMEv1 protocol from the Let’s Encrypt extension. Let’s Encrypt stopped using ACMEv1 to issue certificates.

Monitoring 2.2.1

  • 360 Monitoring graphs are now available again because we fixed the issue with the agent360 configuration file. Because of the incorrect file permissions, agent360 stopped sending the data to the 360 Monitoring server. (EXTPLESK-3361)

    To improve agent360 stability, we recommend that you install update 2.2.1 even if your 360 Monitoring was not affected.

Joomla! Toolkit 2.4.6

  • We have created the current extension’s “maintenance only” fork for Plesk versions 17.0.17-18.0.40 and labeled it version 2.4.6. We do not plan to update the fork unless any essential security fixes are necessary. We will introduce major changes updating only the master branch for Plesk Obsidian 18.0.41 and later.

Monitoring 2.2.0

  • The extension now shows more information in notification messages from 360 Monitoring. (EXTPLESK-3111)
  • agent360 installation no longer fails on Ubuntu 20 because of the Ubuntu bug. (EXTPLESK-3311)
  • agent360 installation no longer fails after the mod_status module was added manually and the Apache plugin was then enabled. (EXTPLESK-3326)
  • The plesk repair ftp command no longer removes the agent360 system user. (EXTPLESK-3347)

Windows

  • Monitoring now shows the real memory usage and swap usage separately.

WordPress Toolkit 5.9.2

  • Detached WordPress sites are no longer re-added through the Scan procedure, making their detachment permanent. If you need to add a detached site back for some reason, find and remove the .wp-toolkit-ignore file in the site’s root folder.
  • Block author scans and Enable bot protection security measures no longer break WordPress sites installed in a subdirectory. (EXTWPTOOLK-8578)

SSL It! 1.9.10

  • SSL It! now controls the feature of securing Plesk with SSL/TLS certificates (instead of the Let’s Encrypt extension, which did it before).
  • If the Sectigo SSL extension is blacklisted, the “Extension with ID ‘sectigo’ is in blacklist” error no longer occurs. (EXTSSLIT-1842)
  • If internationalized domain names (IDN) are mixed case, the extension no longer shows a redundant warning. (EXTSSLIT-1868)
  • If Plesk is secured with a certificate issued for a custom domain name, renewal of the certificate now keeps the custom domain name. (EXTSSLIT-1869)
  • If nginx is disabled, it is no longer possible to start securing a domain with the “Forwarding” hosting type (because this scenario is not supported and is bound to fail). (EXTSSLIT-1871)

Extensions Catalog 1.15.3

  • Internal improvements.

Let's Encrypt 2.14.0

  • Changing Let’s Encrypt from a standalone extension into a plugin for SSL It!

    In February 2022, we plan to change Let’s Encrypt into a plugin for the SSL It! extension.

    Will I lose any Let’s Encrypt features?

    You will not! The SSL It! extension already has all the features Let’s Encrypt has and more. The only change is that Let’s Encrypt stops being a standalone extension and starts working only in tandem with SSL It!

    Which Plesk versions will it affect?

    Plesk Obsidian 18.0.22 and later. Earlier Plesk versions do not receive either SSL It! or Let’s Encrypt updates.

    How can I continue working with Let’s Encrypt certificates?

    • If your Plesk version is 18.0.22 and later, install SSL It! and use it from now on.
    • If your Plesk version is 18.0.21 and earlier, update Plesk to version 18.0.40, install SSL It!, and then use it from now on. You can still manage Let’s Encrypt certificates using the maintenance-only fork of the Let’s Encrypt extension (it comes with no new features, improvements, or bug fixes).

    How and when will the change go into effect in Plesk 18.0.22 and later?

    We are making this change in three steps:

    • On December 14, 2021 (Let’s Encrypt release 2.14.0), we announce the changes in the Plesk Change Log and Plesk UI notifications.
    • On February 15, 2022 (Let’s Encrypt release 2.15.0), we hide the Let’s Encrypt UI elements. At that point, you will still be able to bring them back by adding the following lines to the panel.ini file:

        [ext-letsencrypt]     
        showInterface = true
      
    • On March 15, 2022 (Let’s Encrypt release 3.0.0), we completely change the extension to an SSL It! plugin. It will no longer be possible to manage Let’s Encrypt certificates in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.22 and later without SSL It! If you have not installed SSL It! by yourself, Let’s Encrypt release 3.0.0 will automatically install it for you.

    Note: The showInterface setting in the panel.ini file (mentioned above) stops working from this point on. Keeping it will not hinder your Plesk server in any way. However, we recommend that you remove the showInterface = true line from panel.ini to declutter the file content.

    Why do you make these changes to the Let’s Encrypt extension?

    Less than 10% of all Plesk servers use Let’s Encrypt without SSL It! Plus, combining the SSL It! and Let’s Encrypt extensions offers more features than Let’s Encrypt alone.

Extension Catalog 1.15.0

  • Description of Block author scans security measure was also updated to appease the nitpickers from our security team. (EXTWPTOOLK-8253)
  • Changelog links for plugins and themes were returned on the Plugins and Themes global tabs and Updates screen. (EXTWPTOOLK-8339)
  • Remote sites connected via plugin can again be properly updated via WordPress Toolkit without unexpected consequences. (EXTWPTOOLK-8235)

  • Updated the text of the links in the notification shown when a user runs out of domains they can monitor for free to prevent possible confusion. (EXTPLESK-3189)

Sectigo SSL 1.3.9

  • In Plesk for Linux, improved chances of successful issuance of SSL/TLS certificates for domains that have access restrictions or custom rewrite rules. To deliver this, the extension now uses the general location of HTTP tokens.

    Note: If necessary, you can turn off this improvement by running the following command: plesk ext sslit --common-challenge-dir -disable. However, we recommend that you always keep the improvement on.

Plesk Obsidian 18.0.40

  • Replaced Gzip with ZSTD as the default compression method for backup and restore operations in Plesk. On multi-CPU servers, depending on the type of data being backed up, this provides the following benefits:

    • Reduces the backup size by up to 20%.
    • Reduces the CPU load by up to 25%.
    • Reduces the backup creation time by up to 2x (fast), and by up to 4x (fastest), based on the compression level.

    The desired compression level can be set in “Tools&Settings” > “Backup Manager” > “Settings”. The ‘Fast’ level is set by default.

  • Added the ability to disable automatic HTTP > HTTPS redirection for webmail. To enable it, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [mail]
    webmail.forceHttp = true
    

    On Plesk for Windows, to disable automatic HTTP > HTTPS webmail redirection for existing domains, run the plesk repair web -webmail command.

  • Removed a number of Plesk extensions from the Plesk Installer due to low usage. These extensions are still available from the Extensions Catalog:

    In addition, the Plesk Cgroups Manager extension was removed from the “Recommended” preset, and the Site Import extension was added to the “Recommended” preset.

  • Due to security improvements made by Google, if you are using Google Drive Backup Plesk extension to create backups on a shared drive belonging to a corporate account, you need to do the following to be able to make backups (users with personal drives are unaffected):

  • Plesk Administrator should explicitly specify their country of residence in their profile.
  • A number of buttons initiating the primary action on the page have been visually highlighted to make them more noticeable.
  • When creating a subscription, physical hosting is now correctly configured if the subscription’s system user’s password includes one or more ampersand (“&”) characters. (EXTREST-118)
  • Domain Preview now correctly accesses the website being previewed via IPv4, even if an IPv6 address is also configured for the domain. (PPPM-13075)
  • For certain older Plesk extensions, clicking the name of a domain on the extension’s page no longer results in the domain overview page opening with layout and domain name, but no content. (PPPM-13252)

  • Added the ability for Outgoing Mail Control to count the number of individual recipients (TO, CC, and BCC) instead of messages. This closes an abusable loophole which allows users to send bulk email by specifying a large number of recipients (the current Outgoing Mail Control logic counts each individual email as just one message sent, no matter how many recipients the email is sent to). To switch Outgoing Mail Control from counting messages to counting recipients (and vice versa), run the plesk bin mailserver --set-outgoing-messages-count-recipients <true|false> command (the change is server wide). (PPM-7181)
  • Specifying custom values for both the proxy_read_timeout nginx directive and max_execution_time PHP setting for the same domain results in the max_execution_time value being substituted for the proxy_read_timeout value (e.g., adding proxy_read_timeout 1800; to “Apache&Nginx Settings” > “Additional Nginx directives” and setting max_execution_time to 90 in “PHP Settings” will result in proxy_read_timeout being set to 90 in the nginx configuration file for the domain in question). (PPPM-12599)
  • On Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 20.04 servers, re-reading and repairing IP addresses in Plesk no longer results in unnecessary duplicate lines sometimes being added to the /etc/netplan/10-plesk.yaml file. (PPP-53340)

  • Running the plesk bin pleskbackup command with the “-z” or “no-gzip” options now correctly results in the backup file not being compressed. (PPPM-13254)

  • Trying to enable SSLv3 (which is outdated and insecure) on a Plesk server by running the plesk bin server_pref -u -ssl-protocols 'SSLv3' command now correctly fails with the “Protocol ‘SSLv3’ is not supported” error. (PPPM-13242)
  • Plesk Installer no longer reports errors if the locale used in Plesk is not configured correctly in Linux. (PI-331)

  • Mailbox size limits specified in a hosting plan settings are now correctly propagated to mailboxes of all domains that belong to subscriptions based on that plan. The mailbox size is now corectly shown as “Default” instead of “Another size” in Plesk, and is changed accordingly for all mailboxes if the size limit is changed in the hosting plan. (PPPM-13274)
  • The size of files smaller than 4 KB is now shown correctly in File Manager. (PPPM-13303)
  • The “Upload file” command is no longer shown in File Manager when browsing a read-only directory. (PPPM-13285)
  • Copying a database or exporting a database dump no longer fails if the name of the database starts with the dash (“-“) character. (PPPM-13267)

Windows

  • Added the option to automatically remove emails forwarded from a mailbox in Plesk. The feature is disabled by default. To enable it, go to “Mail”, click the desired mailbox, open the “Forwarding” tab and select the “Do not deliver copies of forwarded emails to the Plesk mailbox” checkbox.
  • When selecting or clearing the “Show system files and directories” checkbox in File Manager options, it is no longer necessary to refresh the browser window for the changes to take effect. (PPPM-13255)

WordPress Toolkit 5.6.0

  • Server admin now has access to server-wide plugin blocklist on the global Settings screen.

  • Smart Update procedure now provides detailed information about which .htaccess customizations prevent it from working properly.
  • Detection of PHP versions was improved for WordPress installations accessible via several different domains.
  • The “Hotlink protection” security measure wasn’t really a security measure, so it was moved to a separate switch outside of the Check security window.

It is also possible to check the maillog in real-time (‘tail -fn0’ analog). To use this feature, install the Mail Log Browser extension.
  • Added the option to automatically remove emails forwarded from a mailbox in Plesk. The feature is disabled by default. To enable it, go to “Mail”, click the desired mailbox, open the “Forwarding” tab and select the “Do not deliver copies of forwarded emails to the Plesk mailbox” checkbox.

  • The Plesk administrator can now hide recommendations by adding their IDs to the extension’s blacklist. For example, to hide the “Use the Sectigo SSL Extension” recommendation, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [ext-advisor]         
    blacklist = 'SectigoSsl'
    

SSL It! 1.9.1

    • The “Webspace settings” section is now pre-filled and collapsed.
    • By default, Plesk now hides the Let’s Encrypt and Git sections when users create subscriptions, domains, and subdomains. To make the sections visible, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

        [ext-sslit]
        enableSecuringNewDomain = true ; shows the "Secure with an SSL/TLS Certificate" section
        secure-new-domain = true ; makes the "Secure the domain with Let's Encrypt" checkbox selected by default
      
        [ext-git]
        enableOnSiteCreate = true ; shows the "Your Files to Copy to Hosting" section
      
  • Added a progress screen shown when users create domains.
  • Cleaned up the Plesk onboarding: removed distractions (for example, Plesk update notifications) that used to be shown once Plesk is installed.
  • Improved protection against open redirect. The trustedRedirectHosts setting now has the default “empty” value on all existing and new Plesk installations. trustedRedirectHosts specified with the “empty” value forbids Plesk from redirecting to any hosts using the success_redirect_url and failure_redirect_url parameters because such redirecting poses a security risk.
  • Plesk no longer shows DNS Helper if either IPv4 or IPv6 address resolves to the Plesk server. (PPP-52686)

  • It is now possible to remove the Plesk email address of a subscription’s additional users if an external email address is specified. (PPPM-12849)
  • Restarting the Plesk server in Tools & Settings no longer causes the “Failed to fetch” warning to be shown in the Plesk interface. (PPPM-12962)
  • It is now possible to create a subdomain of an add-on domain that has the forwarding hosting type via API-RPC. (PPPM-10784)

Linux

  • It is now possible to create a subdomain of a disabled domain if the “Force daily log rotation for all domains” server setting is turned on. (PPPM-11930)
  • Webmail is now turned on by default for domains created via API-RPC. (PPPM-12355)
  • The plesk repair utility now fixes incorrect permissions in /usr/local/psa/PMM/rsessions, which in turn fixes backup and restoration logs. (PPPM-12786)
  • If a domain’s IPv6 address is set to “none”, running the plesk repair db utility no longer shows the false positive “The following domains are assigned to already removed IP addresses.” error message. (PPPM-12988)
  • A system user that uses the “bash (chrooted)” shell can no longer lose the ability to connect via SFTP. (PPPM-12969)
  • Plesk now daily rotates PHP-FPM error logs to prevent them from consuming all the server disk space and eventually causing issues on the server. (PPPM-11362)
  • Fail2ban logs and database backups can no longer consume all the server disk space. (PPPM-12981)
  • Suspending a subscription that has an add-on domain with the forwarding hosting type and a subdomain of the add-on domain no longer breaks the Apache configuration. (PPPM-12939)
  • nginx now returns a 404 Not Found error when requesting a non-existent static file larger than 1023 bytes whose URL contains a trailing slash. (PPP-53248)
  • Disabling a domain whose webmail service was uninstalled no longer generates an incorrect webmail configuration. (PPPM-12984)
  • Removing the /usr/local/psa/PMM/rsessions directory and then going to Backup Manager no longer prevents further backup restoration and download of restoration logs. (PPPM-12785)
  • In Plesk on Ubuntu with libc6 version 2.31-0ubuntu9.3 or later, a subscription’s system user that uses the “bash (chrooted)” shell can now connect to the Plesk server. (PPPM-12954)
  • Subscriptions’ system users that use the /bin/false shell now log in to the Plesk server via FTP faster. (PPPM-12909)
  • In Plesk on a Debian-based system, rereading IP address to repair misconfigured ones no longer duplicates IP addresses in /etc/network/interfaces. (PPPM-12941)
  • If Plesk with Postfix that uses milter_protocol=2 receives an email, this no longer kills the pc-remote service. (PPP-53325)
  • Plesk Log Browser now displays logs compressed in the GZIP format. (PPPM-12976)

  • Apache now runs if it is configured with TLS 1.3 ciphers only. (PPPM-12964)
  • Plesk now vacuums the Fail2ban database weekly to prevent it from growing large. (PPPM-12981)

Windows

  • Plesk no longer fails to create mail for a subscription that belongs to the service plan that has a disabled webmail client selected. (PPPM-12968)
  • Changes in the %plesk_dir%MySQL\my.ini file no longer prevent updating Plesk Onyx to Plesk Obsidian. (PPPM-12994)
  • Improved the error message shown when Plesk cannot restore a remote SFTP backup because one or more database server types (for example, Microsoft SQL Server) present on the remote storage server are not present on the Plesk server the backup is being restored on. (PPPM-12974)
  • It is now possible to turn on the Atomic Standard rule set in ModSecurity. (PPPM-13001)

  • Cloning backend was fully redesigned for improved security and performance.
  • Workflow related to wp-cron management was redesigned:

    • The option was renamed to “Take over wp-cron.php” to avoid the classic “enable to disable” confusion.
    • It is now possible to explicitly choose if a replacement cronjob should be created or not via “Create a replacement task when takeover is initiated” switch.
    • Replacement cronjobs are now way less strict in regards to user modifications. If WordPress Toolkit cannot find its cronjob, it will not try to recreate the cronjob, concluding that it was knowingly modified or removed by user.
    • If user has butchered or removed the replacement cronjob by mistake, it can be recreated by switching off and on the corresponding “Create a replacement…” switch.

  • WordPress Toolkit auto-updates management permission in Plesk now works properly again. (EXTWPTOOLK-6039)
  • WordPress Toolkit no longer sends email notifications about available updates after automatically installing these updates. Opinions vary on whether this was a user trolling algorithm or a split personality algorithm. (EXTWPTOOLK-6077)

Plesk Obsidian 18.0.35

  • In File Manager, it is now possible to do the following:

    • Upload directories.
    • (Plesk for Linux) Change file permissions recursively. Plesk for Windows has always supported that.
  • File Manager can now display SVG files.
  • Improved the interface of Dynamic List view. It is now easier to distinguish one domain card from another because we made the separating lines more distinct.
  • Reduced the domain creation time by four seconds. To achieve this, we split the mail service creation into a separate task.
  • Improved the “Add Domain” page. Plesk now automatically fills in the system user name and password boxes. We have also removed the password confirmation box.
  • The “Mail Settings” page of domains now shows a hint how to enable DKIM signing for an external DNS server. The hint shows the exact DNS records users need to add to the DNS server.
  • It is now possible to get information about subdomains via the CLI or REST API. (PPPM-12825)
  • Enabling the mail service via the CLI for a subdomain no longer creates the Plesk database inconsistency. (PPPM-12836)

  • The window shown after closing the Change View item in the left navigation pane now contains a correct text instead of placeholders. (PPPM-12863)
  • It is no longer possible to cause the Plesk database inconsistency by deleting an IP address assigned to a subscription without hosing. (PPPM-12876)
  • Introduced a new CLI command --assign-database, which assigns a database created via the API to a domain. (PPP-52056) The command has the following pattern:

    plesk bin subscription_settings --assign-database <domain_name> -database-id <database-id>
    
  • The “DNS settings” page of a subscription no longer fails to be opened with HTTP Error 500 if the Plesk database inconsistency occurs. (PPPM-12877)
  • Plesk can now restore backups of subdomains that belong to a domain with the forwarding hosting type. (PPPM-12903)
  • Improved a hint for creating temporary domains. The previous hint was incorrect and could mislead users into specifying a temporary domain name that did not work. (PPPM-12883)

WordPress Toolkit 5.3.0

  • The wp-cli utility was updated to the latest version, so WordPress Toolkit now works on PHP 8. Yay! On the other hand, minimum PHP version supported by WordPress Toolkit is now PHP 5.4, so websites working on PHP 5.2 and PHP 5.3 cannot be managed by WordPress Toolkit anymore.

  • New WordPress 5.6 installations managed by WordPress Toolkit are not using the WP_AUTO_UPDATE_CORE constant for configuring autoupdate settings anymore. Existing WordPress installations updated to 5.6 will keep the constant in wp-config.php file until autoupdate settings are changed. The only exception to both these cases is complete disabling of all autoupdates, which will still require WordPress Toolkit to add the constant to wp-config.php.
  • WordPress Toolkit now identifies and visually marks websites using unsupported version of WordPress, outdated (EOLed) version of PHP, or unsupported version of PHP.
  • It is now possible to clone websites with defined DEFINER clause in the database dump. If you were ever given issue ID EXTWPTOOLK-946 by our support team for tracking purposes, it’s time to rejoice.

  • Site list loading speed was increased.
  • WordPress sites with very long rows in the database can now be properly cloned. (EXTWPTOOLK-939)

  • Manual setup of email clients now shows the information about the required mail ports and their differences.
  • Starting with this update, the Plesk database stores hashes of secret keys used to authenticate API requests rather than ciphertexts. This way, even if a threat actor were to read the Plesk database, they would no longer be able to retrieve any information that would allow them to authenticate via API.
  • Security improvements.

    Note: Special thanks to Tarek Bouali (@iambouali) for reporting a security issue.

  • Improved the Plesk interface and texts on the “DNS Settings” (domains) and DNS Template > Zone Settings Template (the Plesk server) screens. It should more clear now which field manages the default TTL value for the zone.

  • If web statistics are not generated properly, customers can now understand why because AWStats errors are now logged and customers can see them in the panel.log file (if the show.util_exec_io setting is set to true in the panel.ini file). (PPPM-9832)
  • Plesk administrators can no longer set a rule in the Plesk Firewall that blocks themselves and, as a result, can no longer lose access to the Plesk interface. (PPPM-12469)
  • The server shutdown in Tools & Settings > Shut Down Server (under “Server Management”) is now executed immediately on the same page after confirmation. The server can no longer be shut down twice if the Plesk administrator kept the shutdown link in the browser and refreshed it after the first shutdown. (PPPM-12091)
  • In ModSecurity, the switch from the Atomic Standard to the Comodo rule set no longer causes false-positive bans. (PPPM-12291)

Let’s Encrypt 2.12.4

  • The extension can now automatically issue SSL/TLS certificates only for those domains that Plesk verified to be resolvable. Users will no longer see an error from Let’s Encrypt occurred when the extension failed to secure non-resolvable domains.

    This improvement will be gradually turned on by default for all Plesk Obsidian installations.

    Note: For this feature to work, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [dns]
    enableResolveChecking = true
    

SSL It! 1.7.5

  • The extension can now automatically issue Let’s Encrypt SSL/TLS certificates only for those domains that Plesk verified to be resolvable. Users will no longer see an error from Let’s Encrypt that occurred when the extension failed to secure non-resolvable domains.

    This improvement will be gradually turned on by default for all Plesk Obsidian installations.

    Note: For this feature to work, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [dns]
    enableResolveChecking = true
    

Plesk Obsidian 18.0.32

  • PHP 8.0 is now supported.

    Note: PHP 8 is still very recent (it came out on November 26) and includes significant changes, including the removal of deprecated functions and changes to how code works.

    Because of this, many PHP applications that were written for PHP 5 and PHP 7 may not work correctly with PHP 8. This includes WordPress, which will fix most (but not all) PHP 8 compatibility issues in version 5.6 that will be released on December 8.

    PHP 8 will not be included into the “Recommended” installation set and won’t be installed on new servers or when updating to Plesk Obsidian 18.0.32.

  • DNS Helper - a new feature meant to help users understand that their domain does not resolve to the server’s IP address and is inaccessible over the internet, and also to make it easier for them to make their domain resolve correctly. The feature will be rolled out to Plesk servers in waves. To enable it manually, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [dns]
    enableResolveChecking = true
    showDnsHelper = true
    
  • Added a new CLI command plesk checkupgrade in both Plesk for Linux and Plesk for Windows. Running the command before updating Plesk checks for issues that may prevent the server from updating safely.
  • Added the support for ModSecurity 3 to nginx. ModSecurity 2.9 + Apache remains for now the recommended option. To switch to ModSecurity 3 + nginx, go to “Tools&Settings” > “Web Application firewall”.
    • Switching to ModSecurity 3 may hinder your existing applications. We strongly recommend trying ModSecurity 3 out on a test server before switching your production environment to that version.
    • At the moment you can only choose the OWASP ruleset in the Plesk UI for ModSecurity 3. You can download the Comodo ruleset and upload it to Plesk as a custom ruleset. We plan to make it possible to enable the Comodo ruleset for ModSecurity 3 directly from the Plesk UI in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.33.
    • You can disable switching to ModSecurity 3 by adding the following lines to the panel.ini file:

      [modSecurity] webServer.nginx = Off

  • This version introduces a guided onboarding workflow to help new users create their first website right after the new server initialization stage. Users can choose to start with a WordPress website, a PHP application, or a static HTML/CSS website. They can upload a website they already have or choose a sample website provided with Plesk. To disable this function, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [ext-onboarding]
    enabled = 0
    
  • As of Plesk Obsidian 18.0.32, Internet Explorer 11 support has been deprecated and will be removed in Plesk Obsidian 18.0.33. Learn more.

  • The UX of renaming websites in Plesk has been improved.
  • A publicly resolvable temporary domain name can now be chosen during a website’s creation. The temporary domain name allows you to start working on a new project even if you have no registered domain name. The feature will be rolled out to Plesk servers in waves. To enable it manually, add the following lines to the panel.ini file:

    [techDomain]
    subdomain.enabled = true
    
  • The <your_domain> option is no longer marked as recommended in domains’ hosting settings because selecting it can result in an infinite redirection loop under specific conditions. (PPP-50944)

  • When viewing logs for a subscription, entries from custom logs added via “Logs” > “Manage Log Files” > “Add Custom Log” are no longer incorrectly filtered out. (PPPM-12554)
  • Usable error message is now shown if the MySQL writer process is terminated during database cloning. (PPPM-12450)
  • Restoring a subscription with the “Drupal-8.9.5-171” APS application installed from a backup no longer results in an error. (PPPM-12477)
  • After renaming a PHP handler via the plesk bin php_handler command, the custom name is now shown in Plesk instead of the original name. (PPPM-12556)
  • Restoring a backup created on a Plesk server with a large (1000+) number of customers and/or subscriptions no longer fails with the “The specified backup file is corrupted, modified, created on another server or in an earlier Plesk version” error. (PPPM-12461)

Linux

  • Creating a domain for a subscription while simultaneously changing PHP settings for an existing domain belonging to the same subscription no longer results in both processes hanging endlessly. (PPPM-12447)
  • When creating a subscription on a Plesk Obsidian server that was updated from an earlier Plesk version, the value of the “Restrict following symbolic links” parameter is now correctly passed from the service plan to the subscription. (PPPM-12532)

Let’s Encrypt 2.12.0

  • The extension now supports a new chain of trust based on ISRG Root. Before January 11, 2021, the old IdenTrust root remains the default one, while the new ISRG Root is an alternative one. After January 11, 2021, the extension will issue SSL/TLS certificates based on the new ISRG Root, while the old IdenTrust root will become an alternative one.

    To have the extension issue SSL/TLS certificates based on the alternative root (which is ISRG Root before January 11, 2021, and IdenTrust after this date), add the following lines to panel.ini:

    [ext-letsencrypt]
    use-alternate-root = true

  • Improved error reporting of Backup Manager. Backup Manager now sends the information about all occurred issues to the email address configured in the scheduled backup task. Failures to dump subscription databases are now regarded as important issues because they prevent subscriptions from being fully restored. (PPPM-12097)
  • Fixed the path to the Plesk favicon. Previously it could be occasionally incorrect. (PPP-49932)

Linux
