  3. Server speed

    tools.pingdom.com lets me see the pageload speed of my site from various countries. I'd like to be able to compare servers before buying.

    e.g. I tried Vultr in Singapore - very slow loading into Australia. Moved to Linode in Freemont - 2x the speed for the same site.

    Took 2 days of setup and testing and trial accounts to work that out - perhaps there is an even faster server? I can't try them all.

    Just put a 1mb web page on each server. Publish the url. Now I can compare at GTMetrix or Pingdom to choose the best server…

  5. We need fixed private IPs to clone a server and attach the same IP to a new server or other workarround. Amazon has the fixed private ip.

    We need fixed private IPs to clone a server and attach the same IP to a new server or other work arround. Amazon has the fixed private ip. Amazon you buy a IP and then you attach this IP to any instance so you can create backups and upgrades easily.

  6. Allow NGINX to work in all but specified folders

    I had crushed in a user case which required to manage file permissions via .htaccess RewriteRules, with files physically available inside web-visible folders instead of logic-protected folders, so I had been forced to have CloudWays disable NGINX for my server.

    Instead, it would be nice to have a panel where to configure specific folders with Apache-based file serve, instead of NGINX-based.

  7. Create a MySQL-only optimized server

    I just want to create an high performance optimized DB server without Apache nor other modules.
    I want to be optimized already for high-performance by Cloudways experts. That's it.

  9. Enable New Relic infrastructure instead of NR server

    Hi,

    Since NewRelic Server is going to be removed and is already being replaced by New Relic Infrastructure it would be great if the New relic service would be changed so it will enable infrastructure.

    Related features would be:

    - The possibility to change the display name in newrelic-infra.yml. Currently the Cloudways numerical name is shown in New Relic and I have no clue which server is which :-)
    - The possibility to change the display name in the PHP language agent. As if you don't change both the connection between APM and Infrastructure will break.
    - The possibility to…

  10. Officially support running nodejs as an app user.

    I've chatted with support and they told me you must run NPM and nodejs as a master user. This requirement makes per-app security impossible.

  11. Improve Gmail SMTP Article

    I have to enable "Less Secure Apps" for all of my clients for SMTP to work. Your tutorial should mention that some people may need to do this, because it took me an 2 hours to figure this out and luckily I've had experience with it before.

  12. Support npm install --global

    Right now, it throws a permission error. This is helpful for tools like gulp.

  13. 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.

  14. 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:

  16. Please enable NPM in SSH when we are using application SSH user

    Currently, application SSH user does not have such permissions to run NPM via ssh. But this feature should be available

  17. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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…

  20. install msttcorefonts automatically

    We tend to use wkhtmltopdf static binary to generate pdf's on our servers. It would be great for msttcorefonts to be installed on the server automatically so that our pdf's will be able to use standard web fonts.
