  1. Auto-generating random WordPress database prefix to improve security

    At the moment, a database prefix in each new WordPress instalation is set "wp_". This is makes a website insecure.

    Could you auto-generate a random database prefix to fix that?

    Thank you.

  2. Please enable device detection in Varnish

    My site has different version for mobile / desktop.

    So it is not performing well with Varnish due to caching.

    Please do enable Device detection in Varnish

    There isn’t any standard specification or list of user agents available to differentiate between the devices.
    However we are assessing situation.

  3. WordPress and Woocommerce apps should both use Woo Varnish by default

    My suggestion is that all WordPress apps use the Woocommerce Varnish by default.

    This way there's no risk of a user installing a normal WordPress app and later installing Woocommerce on it, only to find out that their cart is broken because of Varnish.

    Here is why:

    I found out that the WordPress app uses a unique Varnish and the Woocommerce app uses it's own unique Varnish.

    I ran into a problem with a WordPress app that I later decided to install Woocommerce on. Once I did, the normal wp Varnish did not support Woocommerce and it broke my cart…

  5. Allow changing Wordpress admin credentials and make default password stronger

    Admin Area Access credentials for Wordpress are not correct when cloning a website. This causes confusion on what the correct password is. Also, when adding an application, the default password created for wordpress credentials are rather weak. Would like ability to set more secure password and also change/sync a password with Admin Area Access details so that this information could be shared among admin staff.

  6. Have a dedicated WordPress team

    I like the Wordpress teams for the managed WordPress hosting on the other hosting platforms like WP Engine, etc. I think that would be cool here. Pick the server that best suits your need and have a WordPress guru team supporting the best CMS out there.

  7. Improve Staging Deployment for Wordpress Sites with better Find/Replace

    I have found a problem with the Staging deployment for my wordpress sites.
    Some plugins and themes store serialised arrays in the wordpress options. This is a valid technique that results in less DB calls.
    However, if you simply do a find and replace on URLs in the database, the serialisation of the array will break. This means that the Staging site will lose the settings in the plug-ins and themes.
    If you don't realise this, and push the changes back to Live, the Live website will break.

    A related problem is with premium plugins and themes that are licensed…

  8. Continue to support cache plugin!!

    Hi! Your cache plugin is AMAZING! Please, please continue to support it. I tried another plugin (WP Rocket): for my site is far better than that one. I would buy it for sure, if you would decide sell it. Just please continue to develop it, please!
    Just a big THANK YOU for all the creators behind that fantastic plugin!

  9. Automatic DNS for WordPress MU

    In cases like mine, with WordPress MU. I am building a 'Shopify' like site with WordPress MU and WooCommerce. This means my users will be creating the sites on their end.

    Through praticallity sub-domains ('customershop.ourdomain.com') are our preferred choice of URL structure.

    The way Cloudways works right now, this is only possible if I create the users site then add the sub-domain to the DNS list in Click & Go.

    Somehow making this automatic so sub-domains can be created in WP MU and be provisioned throughout the DNS would be awesome.

    (I don't know... maybe adding a nameserver service so…

  11. Breeze cache plugin - Add CloudFlare support

    CloudFlare works on it's own, but they're not always good at refreshing their cache automatically, so we sometimes need to do it manually. That's why integration would be great (which the people at WP Rocket obviously also thought and therefore implemented integration so people and their plugin can trigger a CloudFlare cache refresh).

    With CloudFlare integration the "Purge All Cache" dropdown menu item in Wordpress would clear both Breeze, Varnish and CloudFlare caches.

  12. DISABLE_WP_CRON by default

    Would define a trustable WP Cron for low traffic sites, as It won't depend on visits any more.
    And also and no less important, High Traffic sites would have a stability boost.

    So, by default add this in wp-config.php
    define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', 'true');

    And automatically setup an actual cron job in the App Console.

    Some resources about this:

  14. Wordmove

    Right form the Wordmove repo:

    "Wordmove is a nice little gem that lets you automatically mirror local Wordpress installations and DB data back and forth from your local development machine to the remote staging server. SSH and FTP connections are both supported.

    Think of it like Capistrano for Wordpress, complete with push/pull capabilities."

    Link: https://github.com/welaika/wordmove

    This would be a game changer for WP workflow in CloudWays.

  17. Add ability to exclude folders on the migration tool.

    The Cloudways WP Migration tool needs the ability to exclude folders from the backup. It says already that sites over 200mb won't work, and most of the sites I manage have upload folders with large media files. I know I will have to transfer these myself via FTP, but if you added the ability to exclude the folder, the rest of the migration could still happen.

  19. Breeze needs to purge CDN

    I agree with previous posts ... Breeze must purge everything, including a CDN. This functionality should not only purge the Cloudways CDN, but also any CDN that is compatible with Breeze.

    This is a MUST for a speed development workflow.
