      • support forcing lowercase URLs

        It's poor SEO to be able to access the same pages of a website on different URLs - this includes capital letter URLs for any web service that utilises re-writes (e.g. a CMS such as Wordpress).

        This can be resolved by utilising htaccess with a RewriteMap or Nginx, see links below. But none of these options are included in the standard server config and Cloudways interface doesn't allow them to be added.

        https://stackoverflow.com/questions/19048192/force-lower-case-of-urls-override-previous-rules

        https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3666003/how-i-can-translate-uppercase-to-lowercase-letters-in-a-rewrite-rule-in-nginx-we

        Be really useful if this was possible. Support tried to implement the htaccess option for me, but it took down Nginx for some unknown reason -…

          • Higher update frequency for logs

            As an example the logfile "apache_prestashop-114732-326775.cloudwaysapps.com.access.log" of my prestashop installation is only updated approx. 4 times per hour
            Sometimes it would be helpful for bugfixing if the files are updated more frequently.

            • Block Specific IP

              Hi,
              Now we can whitelist an IP if it is blocked, I suggest to let us able to Block Specific IP, i think this will be a good idea

                • External MySQL connections

                  There should be a whitelist similar to the FTP whitelist that allows users to specify IP addresses that should be allowed to connect to the database externally.

                  • Exclude Varnish by User-agent

                    When I keep Varnish activated, my user-agent sniffing rule doesn't work always.

                    Usage example

                    # Return 404 for X user-agent
                    RewriteEngine On
                    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} .(X).*$ [NC]
                    RewriteRule .* - [R=404,L,NC]

                    This is a big problem for a common use.

                        In Digital Ocean can not only increase the memory of the server, or the disk space, or the processor? Will not that ever be possible? It's that I see the server I have from a few processor spikes, but the rest is still a lot left over. Almost nothing to use.

                                      the command is similar to this.

                                      i know, i could login via ssh and edit the files in place, but both vi, vim and nano are 'messing up' with my source files. don't know why. some charecter encoding problem maybe. could find a solution yet.

                                        • Allow us to Delete Individual Backups, or don't charge us for them

                                          We we can set an automated frequency for backups, and retention period.

                                          We can also create a backup on demand.
                                          This is an important feature :-)

                                          What about Delete on Demand ?

                                          We cannot delete backups which are no longer relevant.
                                          ..and you _Charge_ us for retaining these backups!

                                          Fix:
                                          Allow us to selectively delete backups that we Know we no longer want.
                                          - Or don't charge us for the ones we no longer want !

                                          I may make several backups whilst making changes/updates.
                                          This can take up a great deal of space. Fine Temporarily.
                                          Obviously, paying for this extra…
