  1. Add "favourites" feature for applications

    Allow a "favourite application" section, maybe on initial dashboard after login?

    Added via a star icon on the application detail screen, and can be removed from favourites on the favourites list, and application detail screen.

    So similar to the "ellipsis-hover" list as in you can link directly to apps, but you can set which you'd like to show.

    Would be handy when working on a specific pair of projects and need "quick access" to their application pages (rather than multiple clicks - manage server > application management > click list > select list item).

    Hope I've explained clear enough :-)

  2. Server Scaling option should have a pop-up asking for confirmation

    When scaling the server there is no confirmation (like "Are you sure you want to do so?") which can cause issues if someone accidentally clicks the scale button without intending to actually scale up the server.

  4. Configure MySQL thread_stack to 256k

    The default and recommended minimum setting for thread_stack on 64bit systems is 256k. The current setting is 192k, which is the default for 32bit systems but the stack is built on 64bit.

  5. ImageMagick extension for PHP

    Since installing Google PageSpeed module is not an option on Cloudways server, I will have to optimize images manually (through my coding). Can we have ImageMagick installed?

  9. Rehabilitate SSH access with application credentials

    Rehabilitate SSH access with application credentials and not for only Master credentials.

    In my case, we have our software, installed on our software, that connect via SSH to single application for launch some php script with php-cli.

    Now, i can't give master password to our customer!

  10. Allow users to rename application folder

    It's great that we can now have a single SFTP account to access all applications on each server. However the randomly generated application folder names, while secure, are not user-friendly. By the time I have looked up which folder corresponds to each application, I might as well have set up an FTP account for each application.

    Give us the ability to rename application folders to something meaningful would make the functionality much more useful

  11. Allow OPCache Settings

    Allow OPCache Settings to be managed by us. I've tried to do it so via php.ini and .htaccess directives, but neither has worked with some few values.

    Also it's kind of annoying to have to talk to the support team everytime I need something to be changed.

  12. add elasticsearch service to auto-restart

    Our elastic search service stopped for whatever reason and had to be restarted manually. This makes it quite unreliable because when it does happen it can only be restarted manually. Service should auto-restart like all other services.

    If what you want is to run Laravel Artisan commands such as:

    > php artisan schedule:run
    > php artisan route:clear

    You can do so from the advanced cron editor, so long as you run the command from inside the public_html directory where artisan is found. For example, we have tested with:

    > * * * * * cd public_html && php artisan route:clear > /tmp/artisan.log

    And it works fine.

    Let us know if this fixes your needs.

  14. Drupal 8 support plan

    With Drupal 8 release imminent (https://www.drupal.org/node/2605142) could you publish a schedule for supporting Drupal 8 installation as an option, as well as Drush 8? We don't envisage building client sites with it for a few months at least, but would welcome knowing your plans for supporting it, and having the option to start testing.

  15. Alphabatize Server List in Dropdown

    Please alphabetize the server drop down list found at the top of the screen when viewing the details of a server. This drop down list makes it easy to move from server to server, but it is unnecessarily complicated by having to hunt through the list for what you need.

  17. get support/make it easy to open a livechat window

    I'm trialling your stuff as of yesterday and I feel locked out of support. There's a problem with my php settings being inadequate for my woocommerce store but I don't know where to fix it. I'd really just like contact to ask that question but I've been trying for an hour already and getting nowhere.

    Q - would I do the following via your site?
    Woocommerce Visual Products Configurator:
    Your PHP setting max_file_uploads is currently set to 20. We recommand to set this value at least to 100 to avoid any issue with our plugin.
    Your PHP setting max_input_vars is…

  19. White-label application URL

    To me not having a white-label Cloudways application is absolutely of no concern. The only concern I have (because I offer clients managed Wordpress hosting) is the fact that the application-url is not white-label. If only I could have my brand name in stead of Cloudways I am done.

    Composer is now auto-updated on deployment (so new servers get latest version) and recurring updates happening bi-weekly automatically.
