  2. run script after git deploy

    the ability to provide a .sh script that will be run after each git deploy if the file cloudways/build.sh is found for exemple.

    this way you can run npm install, or anything related to a framework deploy (symfony commands for exemple), or even database migrations

  3. Please integrate IonCube with PHP 7.

    IonCube is currently not integrated with PHP 7 on Cloudways, only older versions of PHP. Please run it with PHP 7.

  5. Install Ghostscript

    Just that, please install Ghostscript as it's a requirement for other tools such as GraphicsMagick and ImageMagick

  6. Allow Server Master Credentials to access all MySQL databases.

    Having a single user account that can access all the databases under a given server would simplify administration. The Server Master Credentials seems like a logical choice.

    Currently I open an SSH tunnel for database access and it would be great if the same tunnel credentials could also connect to the databases.

  7. Allow to change nginx config to take care of redirects

    Hello, since nginx is at front, would be great if cloudways allows us to change nginx config to take care some redirects, like non-www to www.

  10. Make XDebug accessible for remote debugging

    I would like to use my IDE such as PHPstorm, to have remote debugging sessions using XDebug. Currently, XDebug is available on Cloudways but I cannot connect to it, so what is the point?

  11. Add stored procedure SQL server

    Cloudways mysql server didn't support stored procedure Sql. I think it would be better if stored procedure functionality add on mysql server.

  12. Possibility to upload server key and CSR for SSL certificate

    I think there should be possible besides generating CSR uploading own CSR and key for the SSL certificate. This would minimize time when migrating from some other server

  15. Add write permissions to user (~) directory for SSH application user

    The application user does not have write permissions to their own user directory (i.e. `~/`). This prevents any application that needs to write to this directory from being run when logged in as an application user, such as git, ssh, npm, etc.

    Making the user directory for the application user writable by the application user, so that new files and sub-directories can be created, will solve many issues that myself and others are having running applications when logged in as an application user.

    Other feedback ideas this should solve include:

    Please enable NPM in SSH when we are using application…

  16. Tracked deletions in git should be synced with the server upon deployment

    Currently when using the git deployment feature, if you delete a previously tracked file and push this change to the server it doesn't delete the file from the server.

    This means you're left with lots of legacy files that are no longer needed, and your repo is no longer in sync with your server files.

    This can cause issues if you ever wanted to push changes back from the server to git as it would then track the previously deleted files and re-add them to the sever!

    I'd assume this to be expected behaviour but there might be a reason…

    Thanks, Harry, for taking the time to report this.

    I’d like to better understand your use-case in order to figure out what’s going on.

    For example, if I have a git repository deployed on my server on Cloudways, and if I go ahead and delete an already tracked file from the repository on my local computer and push the changes upstream to the remote repository and then pull those changes on my Cloudways server, I do see that the deleted file is gone from my public_html/ (or any other deployment) directory. Are you having trouble with that?

    Or is your workflow different from what I’ve described? Please let me know so I may check it thoroughly.

    Thanks.

  17. Add ability to set ServerTokens configuration in Apache

    Often there is a desire by security teams not to expose verbose information about the versions of software and operating system running on a system. It would be great if the ServerTokens and ServerSignature configuration items were available to silence or minimize the information given. The motivation here is to prevent handing an attacker information about what older exploits might apply or not to your server.

  19. Set Varnisch cache time on application level

    Varnish hit rate is low on low traffic sites. By setting the cache time of varnisch on an application level you can beter manage site speed per application.

  20. Allow user backup settings

    Hi, I would like to suggest that User should be given the chance to set the backup timings on his own preference so that he himself can fine tune it for the time when the website has the least load.
