  1. Enable SSLSessionCache

    This configures the storage type of the global/inter-process SSL Session Cache. This cache is an optional facility which speeds up parallel request processing. For requests to the same server process (via HTTP keep-alive), OpenSSL already caches the SSL session information locally. But because modern clients request inlined images and other data via parallel requests (usually up to four parallel requests are common) those requests are served by different pre-forked server processes. Here an inter-process cache helps to avoid unnecessary session handshakes.

    Ex.: SSLSessionCache shm:/usr/local/apache/logs/ssl_gcache_data(32000)

    https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_ssl.html#sslsessioncache

    Or via Memcached (but this requires Apache v2.4) :
    https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/en/mod/mod_socache_memcache.html

  3. Wildcard SSL for multisite but also works for mapped domains

    Right now we have two options for having SSL working for WordPress networks. We can have a wildcard SSL certificate OR we manually map domains to each subsite. It would be nice of we could have both.

    Thank you

  5. Improve Drupal 8 Varnish Integration

    Drupal 8 installs on cloudways currently include the varnish module which is unstable and not recommended for production use. This should be replaced with the purge module, as per the project page:
    https://www.drupal.org/project/varnish

    Additionally, Drupal 8 has a very robust built-in caching api, which can be configured to work together with Varnish for much more efficient caching / cache invalidation. This would require custom configuration of the Varnish vcl for Drupal 8 instances, see the official drupal documentation here:
    https://www.drupal.org/docs/8/api/cache-api/varnish

  6. DigitalOcean High CPU Instance Support

    You support high cpu instances for AWS and Google Cloud but not DigitalOcean.

    Can you include support for choosing different instance types for DigitalOcean such as their high CPU Instance?

  10. Install Ghostscript

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

    Thanks!

  11. Allow changing Varnish config file (VCL) after application setup

    A dropdown with options next to the "Varnish Toggle" button allowing us to choose which VCL is configured with this application would allow us flexibility to change our stack without having to create a whole new application and reconfigure ours.

  12. Add AWSCLI from AWS to your servers

    Adding awscli will allow users to use all the power of amazon aws system on your servers, including sync data to S3, and much more.
    It is really easy to install, official development from Amazon and it will offer great possibilities to admins.

  13. Vultr bare metal option

    Vultr now offers dedicated bare metal servers at a good price when I compare it to the virtual servers and maybe to the cloudways pricing too.

    So it would be great in the future to be able to clone over to bare metal dedicated from digital ocean or other provider. I only propose this if there is actual countable benefit over your current virtual options. Well it definitely makes a difference to applications that have a high load and traffic.

    Vultr also offers Ddos protection.

  17. Update Apache 2.4.28 or later after website failed penetration test

    One of our clients recently undertook a penetration test on their site in accordance with their ISO application. It was highly recommended that Apache was upgraded to version 2.4.28 or later as Apache 2.4.10 was reported to have multiple vulnerabilities.

    Most large UK based companies will undergo a similar ISO application so this should really be completed.

    Thanks!

  18. Install X-sendfile on Server

    Install X-sendfile on Server

    According to this article below, you mention using X-Sendfile to serve digital downloads for woocommerce. It is not currently installed on servers by default, and would be great if it was. Also to provide instructions on best way to setup for secure downloads for woocommerce.

  20. 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.
