  1. to fix SMTP addon

    I just found out an error.

    I create a Vultr server. I explored all the addons and forgot to disable the SMTP addon when I enabled it. I had no intention to use it just to see what addons Cloudways have. Later that week when I was installing new wordpress I found out that my postfix email doesnt work anymore. After I figured it out with your cloudways support I disabled it. However the email still didn't work. I have tried to reset a dummy username to get a new password to check and also create a new username to…

  3. Billing in GBP

    It would be useful to be able to select GBP as a currency to pay my bill. I'm sure other Cloudways customers would like the option to pay in their local currency also.

  5. Back Database inside MySQL Manager

    Hi cloudways team

    Handling database within mySQL manager is really frustrating. If you add a option to clone and backup database inside your mySQL manager, is really handy for everyone.

  6. let users disable PEAR's SSL/TLS forced check in PHP 5.6 to make it compatible with services like Mandrill again

    let users disable PEAR's SSL/TLS forced check in PHP 5.6 to make it compatible with services like Mandrill again.

    5.6 PEAR defaults currently cause a hell of a lot of problems, see for example

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25888550/cant-send-email-with-php-pear-5-6

    https://www.authsmtp.com/php-pear-mail/

    and effectively force us to downgrade to 5.5

  7. Add the ability to lock down file write access per application (so one a compromised application cannot affect other)

    Applications on the same server currently have write access to each others' files by default, which is an unnecessary security risk. For example, if you have multiple Wordpress applications on the same server and one gets compromised, the hacker could also compromise any other applications on the same server. If possible, it would be worthwhile to at least have the option to lock down file write access on a per application basis. I believe you already have apache running under separate users for each application, so this might be as simple as disabling the www-data group permissions.

  8. Fix Issues With Primary Domain Changes

    You might consider this a bug, but after having been bit by it multiple times, I figured it would be best to post it here.

    When you have multiple apps on a server and you re-arrange the primary domains on them, changing which app a specific app uses, the server will not properly follow your new primary domain settings and will instead load your default app. Here is how you reproduce the issue:

    1. Have an app on the server with a domain like dev.mysite.com
    2. Have a second app (your production app) on the server with a domain like mysite.com.

  10. Moodle is recommending that mysql databases run barracuda.

    Moodle is recommending that mysql be run using barracuda. This would be something worth investigating for all those that host moodle sites as the bigger the site, the more this will be needed. There is currently no way that this can be done on cloudways which means that moodle users will need to start migrating away from cloudways if they get big sites

  11. Add Postfix to Manage Services

    Suggest to add Postfix to Manage Services that allows us to start/stop/purge the Postfix service. The reason for this is one of my sites here got hacked and what the malicious php file does is spam ppl. Since it requires root access to purge the cache, adding this option would be a huge help for me and those facing similar problems.

  12. Ability to use installed application folder as a GIT repository and pull directly.

    I was so excited to have Laravel installation in 2 clicks and when I see is up. Then I'd like to pull from server to my local host by GIT and start to development.... No-way. Big frustration :-( if I have an app on GitHub; I can pull it from github to cloudways but I can't use the application folder as a repository.. so what the application installations for? I hope this feature request make sense.
    Thanks

    Trevor, can you further develop this?. With master credentials, you should be able to git pull / push / clone … at will from the server.

    If you can provide specific issue and steps to reproduce it will be very helpful to assess what we can do.

  13. DISABLE_WP_CRON by default

    Would define a trustable WP Cron for low traffic sites, as It won't depend on visits any more.
    And also and no less important, High Traffic sites would have a stability boost.

    So, by default add this in wp-config.php
    define('DISABLEWPCRON', 'true');

    And automatically setup an actual cron job in the App Console.

    Some resources about this:

  16. Add PDF invoice to billing notifications

    I think it would be great if you could attach a PDF copy of the monthly invoices to the billing notification e-mails.

    Currently when we receive a billing notification, we have to login to our account with two-factor just get a copy for out accounting department.

    This is really a needless waste of time for all customers who need the invoice - every month!

    I think this suggesting should be easy and quick to implement, and would be a benefit to all customers.

  17. Setup Queue workers for Laravel

    It's not possible to setup queue workers for Laravel. The ability of dispatching to workers is a big thing. It would be great if it could be supported.

  18. While creating Team users can we create a user who will have only access to Start and Stop the server.

    While creating Team users can we create a user who will have only access to Start and Stop the server.
    Currently the user with "Full Access" is able to "Delete" the server,we don't want to provide this access to one of our user.

    This can be useful for the teams where one is expected to only "Start and "Stop" the server and do not do any other activity.

  19. Allow the public_html folder be symlinkable

    In Short allow the ability to symlink the public_html folder in order to use Ci tools such as bamboo, deploybot, envoyer to handle deployment of code.

    It would be great to run a build scp a zip of the site unzip on the server and then symlink the public_html with the current release, therefore having no downtime when deploying code.
