  1. Nginx to conditionally serve WebP format images if they exist.

    at the moment .webp images are being served by apache.
    they should be served by nginx and cached just like jpg/png.

    Also if the .webp file exists next to the jpg/png serve it to browsers that support webp instead.

    ```
    # http config block
    map $http_accept $webp_ext {
    default "";
    "~*webp" ".webp";
    }

    # server config block
    location ~* ^(/path/to/your/images/.+)\.(png|jpg)$ {
    set $img_path $1;
    add_header Vary Accept;
    try_files $img_path$webp_ext $uri =404;
    }
    ```

  2. Block Specific IP adresses and GEO locations from access to webserver

    Would be nice to have this feature as a basic firewall.
    Not every business can afford to pay for 3rd party solution like Sucuri firewall.

  4. varnish exclude

    Firstly I would like to suggest option to exclude ALL cookies by only * sign

    Secondly, I would like you to include in documentation the fact that when you are using Google Chrome (or in other browsers) developer tools to check what cookies you should exclude, there are 3 folders - Local Storage, Local Session and Cookies ... and not only Cookies have to be excluded, but many times also things from Local Storage and Local sessions which I didnt find in any documentation yet

  6. There must be more than one data base creation option for one application

    There must be more than one data base creation option for one application. some times we have to create more than one database for few operations in Magento 2 but working on cloud ways we have to go far long way for it by installing another app which definitely overload server and result increase of cost if resource is increased or if resource is not increased then performance decline is the consequence.

    for example a Magento developer or user want to use a theme quick start pack he has to create a new data base and what if he already…

  8. Server Settings Default

    Make it if you don't add a number character to one of your 'Server Settings' it should just save as DEFAULT. At the moment you need to add a character in order to save your settings. I want to be able to change a certain server setting back to default but there is no option.

  9. Option for unsecured FTP

    It would be nice if you could make an option for a client to be able to disable safety with FTP.
    For me at the moment it would be much more practical because I don't use this server for secret or vulnerable data anyways, so safety doesn't concern me for every server equally. But I would need a client to be regulary sending me XML files, but unfortunately they can only do it through unsecured FTP.

  11. Allow us to modify the Varnish Cache configuration file

    Please allow us to modify the Varnish Cache configuration file. Because your interface to exlude varnish with URLs or cookies is very basic, and does not allow us to configure varnish properly to work well with for example geo localization plugins in Magento.

  13. Protecting files in a specific folder

    I'm using WordPress and Easy Digital Downloads plugin to sell downloadable files online. I need to protect files in a specific folder. I found the following article but unfortunately currently there isn't any setting to setup a redirect at Cloudways dashboard. Deactivating Nginx may fix the problem but there isn't any setting for that as well. I'm sure that there are many people who sells downloadable files online, and protecting files is very important for us. I hope you will consider to fix this problem.

  14. Enable ElasticSearch Plugins

    It would be a HUGE improvement for Elasticsearch if we could install/enable following plugins:

    - analysis-phonetic
    - analysis-icu

    Is there a specific reason why these would not be allowed to have? I see no harm in adding them. For instance, it would enable Magento users to add elasticsuite.

  15. Add scheduling to vertical scaling

    Since vertical scaling requires that the server go down for up to 10 minutes, I would like the ability to schedule that for, say, 3am local time.

  16. Allow us to freely customise supervisord

    As of now, the supervisord setting in the application setting is only for laravel queue worker. It would be nice if we can add our own custom supervisord configuration setting for other services. I really want to implement websockets into my application. The idea is simple, you allow us to create new supervisord configuration, then we would just paste our desire configuration into a textarea, and there's a button that we can click to restart the supervisord after adding new configuration.

    Example:
    [program:websockets]
    command=/usr/bin/php /home/laravel-echo/laravel-websockets/artisan websockets:serve
    numprocs=1
    autostart=true
    autorestart=true
    user=laravel-echo

  17. I want to be able to delete backups

    I can't see how much space each backup takes up (Like in GCP or AWS) and can't delete backups if I don't want so many backups I'll be paying for! (Especially for scheduled or accidental backups).

  18. Allow application credential to overwrite files owned by master credential

    So, I created an application credential for a client to their HTML based website. The client reports back that they can add new folders and add new files but can't overwrite the original file.
    This is because the application credential can't edit files owned by the master credential. I had to reach out to Cloudways support to assist on this.

    Could we have an option to allow application credential to overwrite the files owned by master credential?

  19. Make server settings and packages transferrable or export/importable

    Context: You don't provide root access or downscaling for Digital Ocean, Lincode, or Vulture servers (3/5 of your providers). Also, you only provide 1-1 or upscaled server cloning for these providers.

    Use case: I scaled up my Digital Ocean development server to handle a taxing dev. After I cloned the completed app to my production server, I had to:

    1. Create a new, smaller DO server
    2. Readjust all of my server settings, packages, and customizations
    3. Clone each dev app individually.

    Alternative: Since you provide automated workarounds for your lack of root access, provide a similar, automated workaround for…
