  1. create a separate architecture for membership wordpress

    wordpress scales better with cache. but this cache is a nightmare if yours is a membership site. the members always see pages guest page loaded from cache, not there account specific page.
    so having a correct cache setup for membership site is a mandatory.

  2. Wordpress & WPSOLR integraation on Cloudways

    I see that cloud ways supports elastic press plugin on wordpress after activating ES on server side. Yet, there is another plugin that has much better functionalities named WPSOLr.
    When I tried to use it, it requires ES v 5.0+ (with mapper attachments plugin) or SOLR on the server. Now Cloudways have option of ES 5.4, but mapper attachments plugin not there, and we can't install it due to root access.Due to that, I had to use outside hosts just to host my ES/SOLR index $40per month.
    I would suggest that cloudwaays provide the mapper attachments plugin to ES5.4 or…

  4. Breeze cache plugin - pls add CDN origin pull/push

    The new caching plugin works great. It supports CDN but it doesn't support adding the files to CDN (origin pull/push) - it relies this is solved outside the plugin.

    Any plans to integrate this as well?

  5. App based settings and packages

    It would be great to be able to setup different Settings and Packages to each app on the server. One can use MySQL, the other can use MariaDB etc...

  6. WP-CLI commands when creating an application

    Would it possible when creating a wordpress application using the CloudWays API that you can specify some WP-CLI commands that run after creation so you can install plugins and set other options with an API call? This saves having to SSH into the new application.

  7. Auto-generating random WordPress database prefix to improve security

    At the moment, a database prefix in each new WordPress instalation is set "wp_". This is makes a website insecure.

    Could you auto-generate a random database prefix to fix that?

    Thank you.

  11. Enable Cloudways Migrator to include migration from local host (PC) etc

    The CW migration plugin won't allow migration from local host. I understand Cloudways is used for production purposes but some people still like to develop on localhost PC etc. It would be advantageous if this restriction was fixed.

  12. Allow changing Wordpress admin credentials and make default password stronger

    Admin Area Access credentials for Wordpress are not correct when cloning a website. This causes confusion on what the correct password is. Also, when adding an application, the default password created for wordpress credentials are rather weak. Would like ability to set more secure password and also change/sync a password with Admin Area Access details so that this information could be shared among admin staff.

  13. subdomain configuration without auto adding 'www' into the database for Home URL and site URL

    subdomain configuration/assignment to an application without auto adding 'www' into the database for Home URL and site URL (in the option table). When we configure a dubdomain for an application, ex : sub.mysite.com, it writes 'www.sub.mysite.com' into the siteurl field and home filed into the Database.

  14. Implement custom caching plugin (solution) by Cloudways

    I think cloudways should come out with their own caching plugin (solution). In my case, it's specific to WP.

    The reason being, caching solution works differently from host to host, and is not one solution fits all. And plugins from time to time come out with new versions that may break lots of things, and a ton more reasons.

    As cloudways implement lots of custom stack and caching, they should also use and release updates pertaining to their install.

    Unless you have a better way, at least when a new version is released, and cloudways has already tested the version…

    It happened already a couple of times that my Wordpress Database crashed and it couldn't recover by itself.

  18. Generate Wordpress users directly from the CW Dashboard

    I change my password on a regular basis. So, when I clone apps, the password given by the CW Dashboard doesn't work. It would be great to force the system to create that user.
