  3. Custom Temporary URLs

    On the site URLs for our applications it creats something like "wordpress-XXXXXX-XXXXXX.cloudwaysapps.com"

    You guys need to find a way to allow users to create or change this temporary URL to something different and easier to remember.
    Something like "mysite.cloudways.com".

    We need to be able to set an easier url to remember. The hosting company I was with before moving to you guys allowed that. It was Flywheel. We could create our own subdomain name for the url.

    For Example: At Flywheel we could should choose "mysite" for the temporary domain of "mysite@cloudwaysapps.com"

    Please work on creating this. Thank…

  4. Update Varnish to 5.0 in order to support HTTP/2

    It would appear that Varnish 4.0.2 (which is on my server at www.bizi.fit) does NOT support HTTP/2. The recommended configurations are to enable HTTP/2 (which I have), and to use Varnish caching (for performance).

    Are there any plans to upgrade Varnish to 5.0 (or perhaps upon request), in order to actually support HTTP/2. Currently, I can only get use out of HTTP/2 if I DISABLE Varnish cache.

    In our provided WebStack ( nginx → varnish → apache ).
    Since Nginx (which has support of HTTP/2) is in front this eliminates a need of upgrading varnish to 5.0 as far as HTTP/2 is concerned.
    In case you are seeing issues please open a ticket through support panel, we will be happy to assists you further.

  5. List application in servers.

    It doesn't make a lot of sense that applications are not listed under server settings. This seems like a logical addition.

    From the main server screen, you can access the list of all applications installed on the server via the quick access icons on the top right (www, project and team).

    Unluckily this is a feature related to the provider not to Cloudways. Kyup has an infrastructure that allows for auto-scaling on a single server. None of the other providers offer this capability, so we can’t integrate it.

  8. cloudways probably would have been better if it could change port 22 to 443,... thanks,...

    server would be better if it could use a variety of port :)

  10. Make a reasonable price.

    Vultr starts at $5
    DO starts at $5
    Kyup starts at $10

    Why is there $9, $7
    And $21.11

    Basic price of your service is confusing. Managed vultr adds 4, managed do adds 2, managed kyup adds 11.11. Why? You should have same service price, flat rate for every providers. Also the price just increased, and your customer service doesn't improved as you promise.

    We have different deals with the different providers based on volume and other factors, and this reflects in the final price for the service (so approximately, the platform charges over base price per server size are the same across providers).

  16. I would leave cloudways soon as it is not helping me with installing Mailwizz emails sending script.

    A small change, which requires root privilages for a script to run at cloudways server is not possible. Support is not helpful at all in doing that change by himself. This is simply not acceptable.

  17. Option to disable MySQL manager

    I now have a publicly accessible web interface to my database running om mydomain.com:8082

    This is a security risk and I never use the MySQL manager so I would like to disable it. Please add this option!

    Mysql manager is never open to the internet. Connection is opened and only allowed from the customer IP on the fly as you activate the manager. This happens backstage when you click the mysql manager button and, of course, transparent to end users.

    We take security very seriously at Cloudways and it is one key point in our network design.

  20. suggestion for WP migrator plugin

    I wanted to provide feedback over your migration tool which I find has several issues.

    It's essential when you migrate an existing Wordpress website that you maintain the right file permissions. I have nothing against your team optimising them, but I've had so many errors due to wrong file permissions and my security plugin telling me a lot of file permissions were too open and risky. I had none of these on my old server.

    An example of this is that all the plugin folders had a permission of 775 after my migration even though my original server had these…

    Thanks for your feedback.

    664/775 permissions are required in our platform to support team members functionality (team members are part of the group while master is the owner). This is not a security risk by itself as long and properly implemented (as we have done).

    If for whatever reason, permission differ from our base ones, you have the reset permissions functionality:
    https://support.cloudways.com/using-the-reset-permissions-button-to-solve-permissions-denied-issues/

    That will set again our default.

    That said, if you are the only one managing the site via master credentials and not using team feature, you can use 644/755 as recommended by your security plugin.
