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

  2. Have a client login feature for a single application

    At the moment additional users have access to the whole server and all apps. It would be nice to allow clients to have access to only their application so they can manage the db, cron jobs etc.

    We are moving sites from cPanel and some of the more techie clients expect this.

  3. Improve Cron job feature

    use the actual cron job in a php project is not secure.

    We need to add the php file in the public_html folder (not secure)
    We can't set an argument to prevent hacker to launch many time the file (not secure)
    We can't use something in the URL like xxxx.php?pwd=yyyy (not secure, same problem than previously)

    Will you make something in these case ?

    You can already control post_max_size via the “Upload Size” item that you have in Server Settings.

    This sets to whatever value you define the following parameters:

    php
    upload_max_filesize
    post_max_size

    nginx
    client_max_body_size

  5. Exclude pages or URL's from Varnish

    I would like to suggest having the option to exclude certain pages or URL's from Varnish. Most of the time Varnish is great, but in some instances it can cause issues. One particular instance right now is a very typical Wordpress + WooCommerce setup where Varnish causes the site to not save items to the cart. I did heaps of testing and it's directly a Varnish issue.

    However it would be great to keep Varnish on parts of the site where it doesn't conflict, because the performance gains are fantastic. Would be a great addition to the console.

    Cheers'

  6. Alphabatize Server List in Dropdown

    Please alphabetize the server drop down list found at the top of the screen when viewing the details of a server. This drop down list makes it easy to move from server to server, but it is unnecessarily complicated by having to hunt through the list for what you need.

  7. get support/make it easy to open a livechat window

    I'm trialling your stuff as of yesterday and I feel locked out of support. There's a problem with my php settings being inadequate for my woocommerce store but I don't know where to fix it. I'd really just like contact to ask that question but I've been trying for an hour already and getting nowhere.

    Q - would I do the following via your site?
    Woocommerce Visual Products Configurator:
    Your PHP setting maxfileuploads is currently set to 20. We recommand to set this value at least to 100 to avoid any issue with our plugin.
    Your PHP setting…

  8. Slow initial console login when having lots of servers

    I have around 30-35 servers on my dashboard. When we login, it takes around 1 minute to show the list. So everytime I log into CloudWays, it takes around 1 minute to show my server list...It's comming slower and slower as I add new servers.....

    This was completed a while ago and you can now use multiple email gateway providers (Mandrill, Mailgun, Authsmtp) via our SMTP add-on.

  13. Clone from one server to another multiple times (change user on clone)

    When you clone an app from one server to another, it keeps the same Unix/Linux user and MySQL database name, user and password. Thus, if you clone an app from one server to another, you can't repeat the process later, unless you delete the 1st clone.

    We like to start with a base WP template app and another for WooCommerce. Then each time we start a new project we clone one of those templates to the server it's going to run on. Unfortunately after we do it from the server where the template resides to a new server, one time,…

  16. Automatic Scaling

    Would be nice if we had an auto scaling feature where the server would automatically upgrade to the next level in the event a site is posted on a news site or all of a sudden got a rush of traffic.

    Example the server load is 85% the system knows to upgrade. The downtime for an upgrade on Amazon is about 5-10 mins. That's better than having your site down for an hour because the server is overloaded.

    Kyup is now live from Cloudways. Automated scaling up is available. Scaling down is not automated by now, but we are working with Kyup to make it a reality asap.

    We have got into a partnership with Sucuri where we can offer their services at a discounted price. Read more here:
    https://support.cloudways.com/how-to-setup-sucuri-antivirus-website-monitoring/

    After extensive research, we think Sucuri is the best option for our customers. They are experts in the CMSs we deploy (Wordpress, Magento …) and their services have the flexibility our customers need (including on-demand site cleaning).

  18. Support Git push / pull to remote via SSH

    The current Git Deployment feature is great but doesn't support committing and pushing changes back to the remote repo. Files are changed when new plugins are installed or media is uploaded and these files will be excluded from the repo if they aren't committed and pushed.

    Users could bypass the Git Deployment feature all together and use native Git via SSH if they were allowed access to the .ssh folder. However in order to push and pull to a remote repo via SSH, Git needs to write to the .ssh folder which you forbid. I understand you don't want to…

    With the new credentials system (http://www.cloudways.com/blog/old-ssh-sftp-user-to-the-new-credentials-system/) recently deployed, you can now use all git functionality via command line (push, pull, clone …).

    This will work ONLY for master credentials (https://support.cloudways.com/difference-between-master-credentials-and-application-credentials/) as team members don’t have SSH access anymore.

    With master user now, you can create your own .ssh folder, so all git options should be unlocked.

    Please note this refers to git execution from the command line and is different from the basic Git Deployment feature integrated with our console (https://support.cloudways.com/using-git-for-deployment/), that will just pull a remote repository from the console, store it locally on the server and sync it with the public_html folder of your application and is aimed at users with basic git needs and not comfortable with the command line.

  19. Offer Cloud Hosting Provider Vultr

    Vultr is now a strong competitor in the Cloud arena, and it offers better deals than DigitalOcean such as 768MB of RAM and 1TB monthly bandwidth for only $5 USD. It'll massively increase your customers by having better offers from strong competitors.

  20. Wordpress Security

    For wordpress security, it is a common practice to move up by one level the wp-config.php file from the publichtml directory. Allowing the very important wp-confog.php file to remain in the publichtml directory is considered unsafe. Presently this is not possible in cloudways. WIll this be allowed by cloudways in the futire?
