  3. Add support for PHPEd debugger

    Hi,

    Could you possibly add support for PHPEd? It's one of the most popular PHP development IDEs. It has its own debugger extension as described here: http://www.nusphere.com/kb/technicalfaq/howto_install_dbg_module.htm

    An overview of their debugger is here:
    http://www.nusphere.com/products/php_debugger.htm?

    Basically, it involves uploading the debugger extension to the server and making some modifications to the PHP.ini file.

  4. Offer a LAPP stack as an alternative to a LAMP stack.

    I'd like either bare "metal" spin that allows installing whatever on it or a LAPP stack... We have applications that like that better.

  5. Two factor authentication deactivation (in case of device loss)

    It would be nice to deactivate the two factor authentification by proving our identity in case we lose our phone or device we use. Now we have to pass through the chat and it would be nice if it were more automatic.

  7. Cloudways should partner with ewww.io to bring their tool as a MediaWiki extension

    ewww.io has a magnificent Wordpress plugin that can batch optimize images in directories, even outside the wp-uploads directory. To have this capability in MediaWiki installs would be a huge improvement in the lives of administrators of MediaWiki websites that deal a lot with images. To get bulk optimization of gifs, jpegs, pngs, it would be great. I have pitched the idea to ewww.io before, but I think they don't have many resources. If CloudWays could support them in a way, it would also benefit all the CloudWays customers with huge MediaWiki installations

  9. autoredirect (or option) on login to Server Overview

    When I log into the website, it's a pain in the ass to have to click Servers (after I click application click and go, or w/e the name is) because I do this like 5-25 times a week.

  10. SSH On Off Button

    A simple button to turn ssh on and off, ssh can be turned off until the admin needs to use it so it adds an additional level of security straight on the dashboard. Thanks

  14. Add tutorial for Mac

    Add documentation for Mac. Your tutorial is for Windows. E.g., Putty is not needed in Mac (I had to ask someone more advanced than me to let me know about that, because how was I supposed to know)?

  17. Buddypress plugin

    Hi,

    I use in two of my wordpress based site, a plugin called buddypress. A community plugin. But I'm having troubles, it seams that varnish doesn't go well with buddypress. The bigger problem is that my connection and wait time increases as I must disable varnish for that app. I would be great if it were another software like varnish that doesn't conflicts with buddypress, that you could enable instead. My connection time is right know about 3-4 seconds. But is way to much.

    I hope you can find a solution to this problem.

    All the best,
    Felipe Chamorro

    Removing/replacing varnish is not really an option, as it is the cornerstone of our hosting and the reason (as you mention) of site(s) speed/performance.

    If you provide an example of how we can reproduce what is not working, we can check if there is a fix that we can implement across the platform.

  18. Single codebase Drupal?

    The idea is simple and yet pretty complicated... The multiple Drupal apps hosted from _single_ codebase. This is similar to Aegir approach - one "platform", multple "sites".
    Pros:
    -APC is caching the same files
    -Less storage space, CPU, memory, IO needed
    -Less management
    Cons:
    -Totally new approach, probably needs entire logic change, inserting "platform" between server and app

  20. Better app submission

    The process should be:

    1 - Type of the app (Wordpress, Prestashop...)
    2 - Name of the app (My Application)
    3 - Primary Domain (myappdomain.com)
    4 - SSH Key (Yes[] - No[] and if yes "Paste you SSH Key)

    Actually these steps means 3 app restarts and 5 minutes, with all these steps at the app creation time it would take no more than 1mn.
