  1. Add stored procedure SQL server

    Cloudways mysql server didn't support stored procedure Sql. I think it would be better if stored procedure functionality add on mysql server.

  2. Add ability to set ServerTokens configuration in Apache

    Often there is a desire by security teams not to expose verbose information about the versions of software and operating system running on a system. It would be great if the ServerTokens and ServerSignature configuration items were available to silence or minimize the information given. The motivation here is to prevent handing an attacker information about what older exploits might apply or not to your server.

  3. Set Varnisch cache time on application level

    Varnish hit rate is low on low traffic sites. By setting the cache time of varnisch on an application level you can beter manage site speed per application.

    I want to use a simple application that requires SSH2, and this is not compatible with your server configuration for some reason.

  6. Add more file types on database import

    I found myself in a position where I had a huge table locally and wanted to import it on my database.

    CSV file ~30mb
    SQL file ~200mb

    Unfortunately, we can only import tables from sql files. Would love to see different file types like CSV, JSON, XML

  7. Support for own Cloudflare account with Cloudways Autonomous

    Cloudways Autonomous is a great and finally a modern offering for scalable solutions from Cloudways, but it comes with a great limitation for the Cloudflare power users - Cloudflare proxying "orange cloud" is not supported.

    Since Cloudways Autonomous is deeply integrated with Cloudflare Enterprise own Cloudways account for security and optimizations it becomes impossible to use own Cloudflare account that gives full access to analytics, rules, bot countermeasures, workers, etc.

  8. Cloudways domains are currently not working on safari, possibly due to an HTTPs configuration error.

    All applications with a cloudways domain, i.e. phpstack-xxxxxxx-xxxxxxx.cloudwaysapps.com are receiving the following error when served with HTTPS:

    "Safari can’t open the page because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. This sometimes occurs when the server is busy. Wait for a few minutes and then try again."

    The fix is to add an htaccess rule to the web root folder:
    "Header unset Upgrade"

    This does work, however it seems like there is a Cloudways HTTPS configuration error that could be addressed.

    Thanks!

  9. Create an upgrade path for Object Cache Pro when moving from 1Gb to 2Gb+

    When moving from 1Gb to a higher RAM it would be good to either:
    Highlight the lack of integration for Object Cache Pro for existing assets and what needs to be done (migration) to get Object Cache Pro
    Create a routine that adds Object Cache Pro automatically to existing assets on server upgrade

  10. Send alert when SMTP settings are changed

    Please set up a notification via email when SMTP settings are changed on the server. We have had instances where a member has reset SMTP settings and emails were no longer delivered on our applications. We were not aware until clients brought this up and we investigated. It would be much better to just have a simple email notification sent whenever SMTP settings for a server is changed.

  11. Add Digital Ocean Block Storage Option - Australia Servers

    This will allow clients hosted in Australia to migrate from Vultr to Digital Ocean, while being able to upgrade storage quota.

    Myself alone have 5 servers pending migration due to the lack of Block Storage in Australia.

  12. Offer Cloudways Autonomous with Digital Ocean's servers (not Google's): really better for RGPD.

    Some of us are reluctant to entrust our data (businnes, customers and personal) and our servers to Google.

    A Cloudways Autonomous configuration with Digital Ocean servers would better protect our data in Europe.

  15. Implement Relay Redis client

  16. Preserve git repos when cloning

    The clone process should preserve any git repos on the server.

    Right now, the .git directory and .gitignore file is excluded from a clone.

    This means, in order to restore the repo after a clone, we need to remove the existing files and pull the repo down again from the origin (github in our case).

    This should not be necessary when cloning a server, which is supposed to make an identical copy.

    A clone (that is, making an identical copy) should preserve any git repos present on the server as these are a key part of many workflows.

  17. Varnish and Redish Configuration

    Hello,

    UI should allow us to set Varnish TTL time more than 24 hours and Redish and Varnish memory settings and storage settings etc.

    Without this how come you are a good hosting solution?

  18. Support for Vary: Accept header in Cloudflare

    By default, Cloudflare works to cache objects based on the URL. This prevents image optimization plugins from working, because there may be different images at the same URL - depending on whether the browser supports the format. The idea is that Cloudflare also takes into account the Accept header sent by the browser. In every hosting plan you have Cloudflare Enterprise. In the paid version of Cloudflare, this can be easily configured.

    Here is the working principle of the idea I am talking about:
    https://blog.cloudflare.com/vary-for-images-serve-the-correct-images-to-the-correct-browsers/

    In order to properly configure Cloudflare, you must make such a request to the API:

  19. Remove Object Cache Pro as a standard install from all new server/app builds

    This is really frustrating when you clone or build a new app and it automatically enables OCP. It does nothing for dynamic websites except add an additional overhead (slowing the app down, ironically the opposite of what it is designed to do).

  20. Improve staging DB pull / push feature and user experiance

    When using a staging server that's linked to the live server we have the option to push / pull data from the live server to the staging server.

    If you want to select specific tables your system displays the tables in a very confusing manner/order. I'm not sure what order they are displayed in but it would be much easier and more user friendly if they we're in alphabetical order and match / similar to the table layout in the DB. We have to choose a larger number of tables and use Magento so there's lots of tables to scroll…
