  1. Allow us to freely customise supervisord

    As of now, the supervisord setting in the application setting is only for laravel queue worker. It would be nice if we can add our own custom supervisord configuration setting for other services. I really want to implement websockets into my application. The idea is simple, you allow us to create new supervisord configuration, then we would just paste our desire configuration into a textarea, and there's a button that we can click to restart the supervisord after adding new configuration.

    Example:
    [program:websockets]
    command=/usr/bin/php /home/laravel-echo/laravel-websockets/artisan websockets:serve
    numprocs=1
    autostart=true
    autorestart=true
    user=laravel-echo

  2. Easy text warning on Let's Encrypt failures

    Twice now I have had problems with servers where I had to wait for a Let's Encrypt imposed 8-12 hour ban from creating an SSL cert because I tried and failed too many times.

    It would be great if you would warn me after 2-3 failures that repeated attempts may cause this and to contact support for more help. Just a text reminder in the error message would be great, thanks!

  3. Provide settings to configure logging to a remote syslog server (+TLS)

    We use a centralised syslog server to monitor our sites. We are unable to link our Cloudways servers to this as we do not have root / sudo access to our own servers which is frustrating. Please can you add settings to the platform to allow us to configure logging to a remote syslog server (with TLS).

  4. I want to be able to delete backups

    I can't see how much space each backup takes up (Like in GCP or AWS) and can't delete backups if I don't want so many backups I'll be paying for! (Especially for scheduled or accidental backups).

  5. Server SMTP configuration is not working properly.

    Currently if you have already configured the SMTP on a server Cloudways seems to remember your previous credentials and tries to enter them again. I've just spent half an hour trying to set up SendGrid on the Server SMTP. Everytime I selected SendGrid or Mailgun etc it would automatically fill in the wrong credentials and process them. Finally I was able to remove them and get the proper credentials in. But it took a lot of my time and I'm not happy that I wasted so much time.

    This needs to be fixed.

    Thanks,
    John Anderson.

  7. Make a server setting to toggle outbound email off

    We need a simple, error-free way to be 100% certain that no outbound emails can be sent from a test / staging server. Can we have a server setting to toggle this on & off? Or even better, redirect all mail to an address we provide or to a log file to 'catch' all outbound mail?

  10. GeoIP

    There was an old request asking for GeoIP to be added to PHP. The answer was that there was going to be a way to configure that on a per app basis. Is the answer to this now that you provide support for Cloudflare and Sucuri's WAF which would then push the real visitor IP address to the application (Joomla in my case)?

  11. Place restrictions of the transport of data from cloudways Staging to Live

    Hi

    As per the above title. I would like to restrict the transport of data from cloudways staging to live.

    Primarily this is to prevent any accidental data deletion. I.E updating a woocommerce store

    As a safety precaution I would like to prevent data to only go in one direction Live -> Staging

  12. Option to re-create database

    There should be an option to re-create an entire database. So instead of dropping all tables, we should be able to mysql DROP TABLENAME and mysql CREATE TABLENAME. I ran into a major mysql bug and my database was corrupt, even when I dropped all tables. I do not want to change the name of the database, just be able to re-create the database from scratch.

  13. Varnish exclude PHP Sessions

    Hi Cloudways,

    You already offer pages and cookie exclusions from Varnish settings. But you should also consider PHP Sessions for this exclusion.

    We often add a get parameter in our Google Ads, and when visitors go to our website, we would like to store this parameter in a PHP Session and post it on a form when they get in touch.

    Now we need to turn of Varnish completely.

  14. Exclude certain tables from the search/replace script when cloning

    I've just cloned a site and the script has updated the client email addresses in the database from <user>@domain.com to <user>@www.domain.com, which caused all of the clients users to fail login.

    I'm sure it would be quite simple to exclude the user tables from this script.

  20. I just deleted an APP from my server. After waiting for the process to complete, I got a message that "<Servername>: has been uninstalled."

    For a jaw dropping moment, I thought my entire server was deleted! This message needs to be changed to reflect that only the APP that I actually deleted was the one removed.
    Thank you!
