          This is now live, it can be enabled through Server → Settings and Packages → Advanced Page.

          Please note it is not officially supported with PHP7.x . However it can be used with PHP5 deployements

          • Database Mysql I can not remote.

            I saw easily create server, create a project and I am very happy with the console and github composer, etc., but I am very sad because the database is not flexible, I can not remote.

            • Laravel 5.3

              Hi, the new version is much better than 5.2, can you upgrade it? also is it possible to add cron jobs to work with artisan?

              • Automatic Git deployment

                Ability to pull automatically after a commit/push has been made to the repo. The blog about using Git still says you are working on git hooks.

                • Add PHP 7

                  PHP7 will land soon and smart hosting companies are already supporting it (see Siteground and a handful other competitors).

                  The speed and performance gains are tremendous. Speed + performance = better website experience and for commercial sites, more revenue.

                  The first hosting company to get proper staging support, php 7, easy SSL install and SNI support gets my future business. It's no longer okay for hosting companies to lag behind on PHP, holding the web back.

                    PHP7 is now live. Please note that it is only available (and will continue to be) on Debian 8 servers. If you are running on an older Debian 7 server, you can migrate your application to a new Debian 8 server (where even with php 5.6 you will get better performance) and test php 7 there.

                    • SPDY

                      It would be good idea to start implement SPDY from Google. In this time its relatively heavy pressure for https sites (in my opinion its good idea at all). In this case Varnish is out, so put option for SPDY will be logical step for sites using SSL certificates.

                      • Option to update composer

                        Composer can not be updated without sudo permissions. You should make this option available as all modern php frameworks are based on composer.

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

                          My developer is asking me for a stack option using PHP 5.5x, it would be great this could be offered on ClicknGo platforms especially considering PHP is recommending 5.4 to be phased out: http://php.net/archive/2014.php#id2014-09-18-2

                            Default applications are launched with PHP 5.5 From Server Settings & Packages section you can now upgrade to 5.6 or downgrade to 5.4 ( plus upgrade mysql, replace it with mariadb and deploy redis).

                          • Laravel

                            CloudWays is a great hosting platform, but I would like to see dedicated support built in for Laravel, this would simplify having to set up Laravel for APC/Memcached and would also negate having to play around with the folder structure of laravel (index.php being in the public folder of the application install)
