      • automatic restart when server goes down

        I think it's essential that the servers are fixed so that if they go down they automatically restart the server especially on digital ocean + vultr

        A few times I've had the site receive a traffic spike out of the ordinary and it pulled my sites down until I manually rebooted it. It should be automatic.

        • Can you add WebDav as standard for stacks and to also add the master user to the WebDav group (usermod -aG davfs2 <username>)

          Can you add WebDav as standard (it's a common used service) for stacks and to also add the master user to the WebDav group (usermod -aG davfs2 <username>) this will allow the master user to setup mounts ect...

          Reason for suggestion is a well known service called BrickFTP, so this link gives you an idea at the bottom:

            • Add PHP Mecache as PHP extension

              A lot's of caching solutions use Memcache as PHP Extension.

              Like Simple Cache or WP-SPIDER CACHE will be a great addition and that would cost much since the extension is free.

              • Provide newer version on Nginx

                Please consider providing a newer stable version of Nginx.

                New servers are still installed with 1.8.x which has bugs, most significantly this:

                https://trac.nginx.org/nginx/ticket/959

                The bug causes major incompatibility between PrestaShop and Nginx when HTTP/2 is enabled. Ie. you can't add products to the shopping cart etc.

                I understand that you don't wan't to be first mover on new version, but 1.8 is quite old by now.

                • Add geo detection capabilities into Varnish

                  Please add geo detection capabilities into Varnish, this will accelerate use case scenarios where geo detection is essential.

                  For e.g. in WooCommerce, their current method to provide multi-currency that's compatible with cache is using Woocommerce based geo detection, which tends redirects the visitor 4 times to the correct URL of the page with the correct currency/tax displayed.

                  Other multi-currency plugins attempt improve this but their loading speeds are too slow, drastically affecting woocommerce store loading times, and making caching useless.

                  By having geo detection capabilities right in the server stack (Nginx or Varnish, which ever is hit first by visitors)…

                  • Install libsodium (a.k.a. sodium) on all servers by default

                    libsodium (a.k.a. sodium) is a PHP PECL library for secure encryption in PHP. As of PHP 7.2, libsodium will be included as a core library in PHP.

                    It would be helpful for those of us building secure PHP applications to have access to this library now instead of waiting for PHP 7.2. This will enable us to use encryption methods that will be good for many years to come instead of being deprecated as mcrypt is now.

                    Note that there is a polyfill that can be used until PHP 7.2 if libsodium isn't installed, but it is not nearly as…

                      • Allow change of PHP opcache max_accelerated_files setting

                        I would like to change PHP setting opcache.max_accelerated_files. Its default value, 2000, if far smaller than number of files I need for my 3 apps - there's about 30000 php files that could be cached. This is very "low hanging fruit" for performance optimizations. Please add the option to change this php setting.

                          • Improve cloning process

                            On cloning an application, optionally allow me to specify the target url and a checkbox to specify that I want an SSL certificate installed.

                            This would greatly help improve the process to get that cloned server up and running much quicker.

                            Thanks!

                            • support naming application folders and databases arbitrarily

                              The current scheme is absolutely impossible to remember. Even when renaming folders, the randomly selected name remains as the new name is a link.

                              That means this would have to be asked for before anything has been set up.

                              Usually I want to name the folder and database to the (sub)domain or the actual application name. What's easier to remember than that?

                              Support at least letters, digits, "-", "_", ".", unless restricted by the database engine in question.

                                    Hi there,

                                    as you can read here: https://secure.php.net/manual/en/pcre.installation.php
                                    with PHP 7.0.3 the minimum required version of PCRE is 8.38.

                                    Your servers still use PCRE version 8.35. Dunno if I am the first who experiences this problem, but this leads to PHP sigfault crashes in my applications (TYPO3, Shopware) and they do not respond any more.

                                    Any chance you're updating to PCRE 8.38 in the near future?

                                    Thanky a lot,
                                    Wolfgang
