  1. More servers located in Brazil!

    The only server located in Brazil is from Amazon. The value is too high for more common applications. Please, we urgently need more servers in Brazil regardless of the provider.

  3. Allow asynchronous logging via Loggly, Papertrail, or Splunk

    Allow asynchronous (fast, non-blocking) logging via syslog daemon.

    You don't even need to make it a 1-click installation for Loggly, Papertrail, or Splunk.

    Just allow us to use the syslog daemon and then we can follow instructions at https://www.loggly.com/docs/php-logs/ or http://help.papertrailapp.com/kb/configuration/configuring-centralized-logging-from-php-apps/ or wherever.

    Those instructions say they'd require root access (which Cloudways customers don't have), but it wouldn't require root access if you did the first steps for us.

    Thanks!

  4. Choose PHP Version for every Application (not for Server)

    It should be possible to choose different php versions on a single server. This is possible in most shared hosting environments and is a big advantage.
    It is expensive to create a new server only because you need for example an old php version for a specific application which is not compatible.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  9. 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. Install Ghostscript

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

    Thanks!

  11. 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.

  13. Percona DB (for performance)

    Percona DB would be a nice addition to the packages available on Cloudways (if you care about performance).

    What You Need to Know About the MariaDB & Percona Forks of MySQL
    https://blog.appdynamics.com/database/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-mariadb-percona-forks-of-mysql/

    TL,DR summary: MariaDB is better for advanced features, the latest security and adapting to new tech. Percona excels at database performance and diagnostics. Either one will put you in good company with cutting edge technology firms around the world.

  15. Awstats to see serverside visitor statistics

    It would be great if there's option to enable awstats or similar software to application or server.

    many of my clients wants that, dont know why :D

  18. 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?

  19. 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.

  20. 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
