  2. staging sites

    Hello, Can you please roll out a bug fix for the following :)

    By default let whatever team member that is creating a staging site to have full permission to use it?

    I've just found out a team member created a staging site but is unable to access it. As admin, I had to tick his staging site for him to be able to do anything with it!

    Thanks

  3. Reinstate SSH tunnelling so that VSCode can Remote SSH to new Cloudways servers

    Not being able to SSH to a remote server due to Cloudways disabling tunnelling means all work needs to be done via Command Line which is more time consuming due to no UI. Remote SSH (extension which uses tunnelling) in VSCode is a standard part of many devs' workflow.

    This also seems to be affecting the command line and getting 'broekn pipe' disconnections when it would normally stay connected - this is even more important now that VSCode can't be used for remote SSH.

  5. scale down easily

    For most providers (except Google and AWS) there is an easy way to scale up but it is impossible to scale down. Make it possible to scale down as well.
    Applications not necessarily go up all the time.

  6. Improve the Database Selected Tables Window Layout in Staging Management

    The staging management window that allows for the selection of which database tables to push or pull between staging and live is completely useless in it's current format of a horizontal list with truncated table names. The table list should be alphabetically columnar with the full table name in view to make for easy selection.

  8. During Vertical Scaling down time display a landing page for customers

    During Vertical Scaling when the website goes down it would be great to see cloudways display a page like "Back soon currently making this site more awesome" or something to comunicate that the website will be back up after the scaling as no server side extension or feature can run for most of the upgrade it just shows as no responce from server.

  11. SafeUpdates monthly option for scheduled updates

    I think it is essential to have the option for monthly schedule updates. Plugin updates sometimes can break a site from faulty code, and I think it would be useful to have the option for not-so-regular updates. A monthly option sounds ideal because it will reduce workload for our developer to check on regular base the site after the updates which now the latest scheduled option is weekly.

  12. Have varnish provide cached content for standard query parameters (like Cloudflare APO does for UTM parameters, etc)

    Currently, Varnish cache is "broken" for all query parameters. This means anyone comeing from Facebook, which adds "fbclid", or from any link with standard UTM parameters like "utm_source" is served an un-cached page.

    Varnish WILL then cache that entire page + query strings, but that's not very helpful.

    It would be ideal to have it behave like Cloudflare APO as described here: https://developers.cloudflare.com/automatic-platform-optimization/reference/query-parameters/

    So, for the "allowed" parameters, Varnish would serve cached content of the base URL without parameters.

  13. Mirror Servers For Faster Worldwide Access

    My customers are in the USA and my employees in Asia. The US based server is super fast when accessed from the USA, but from Asia it's slow. I want to run a duplicate mirror server in Asia, but have been unable to find someone with the skills to do this. Would be a great feature if Cloudways could do this with a few clicks.

  14. Offer a "Wipe All And Sync" Option for Live to Staging Transfer

    Offer the ability to wipe all files and database entries, before pulling a fresh copy from live to staging.

    Sometimes I need to redo our Sandbox environment.
    Most of the time, there are various changes to the files and database.

    When I choose overwrite it won't wipe the remaining data.

    If I delete the whole app and stage again, I have to redo SSL and other settings.

    Please give a third option to the "Live > Staging" process.
    - Overwrite
    - Incremental
    - Wipe and Write

    Thank you

  15. Update to composer v2 and add cache folder

    Please update Composer to version 2.

    Support for Composer 1 is deprecated and some packages will not be available. You should upgrade to Composer 2. See https://blog.packagist.com/deprecating-composer-1-support/

    Also, allow a user to write to composers cache folder:

    "Cannot create cache directory /home/12341234.cloudwaysapps.com/hfjhsdkfhdsjkf/.cache/composer/repo/https---repo.packagist.org/, or directory is not writable. Proceeding without cache"

  16. Display Backup storage requirements

    Cloudways server backups require at least 50% storage space of the server to perform a full backup. This mean's although they are moved off the server once complete if you are currently using 51GB of 100GB storage the full server backups will fail to run. For those that backups are important to, at least 50% must always be available.

    It would be good to have a feature somewhere in the server management that won't allow you to fill the server more than 50%.

    Other suggestion:
    - Warnings to say "Your website is 51% full, backups won't run! Free up storage…

  17. Update ImageMagick to support AVIF

    The current version of ImageMagick is from the legacy (v6) branch. Updating to the latest version of the v7 branch would allow for AVIF image format support. AVIF has been out for a couple years now and can provide substantially better compression than WebP.

  18. Gatsby (true Headless) Support

    Gatsby seems to be sinking its teeth in. It may be here to stay. True headless sites are so ridiculously fast, you can't ignore them. From my research, it seems cloudways does not currently support gatsby serving. I've looked at your other headless options and they're good, but not the same as Gatsby. I recommend you look into it and begin offering options. Thank you for hearing me!

  19. The curl version 7.52.1 is too old.

    The curl version is 7.52.1 installed by Vps is about 4.5 years ago. Is it too old to use newer functions or plug-ins?
