  3. Add "auto_prepend_file" to enable WordPress WAF (Web Application Firewall) plugins

    Add "autoprependfile" to enable WordPress WAF plugins such as Wordfence, Ninja Firewall, iThemes Security etc.

    It would be ideal to have this option at the app level (under application settings) in order to configure a different WAF per installed app, but if that's not possible for now it's ok to have it at the server level (under server settings).

  4. Place restrictions of the transport of data from cloudways Staging to Live

    Hi

    As per the above title. I would like to restrict the transport of data from cloudways staging to live.

    Primarily this is to prevent any accidental data deletion. I.E updating a woocommerce store

    As a safety precaution I would like to prevent data to only go in one direction Live -> Staging

  5. Option to re-create database

    There should be an option to re-create an entire database. So instead of dropping all tables, we should be able to mysql DROP TABLENAME and mysql CREATE TABLENAME. I ran into a major mysql bug and my database was corrupt, even when I dropped all tables. I do not want to change the name of the database, just be able to re-create the database from scratch.

  6. Varnish exclude PHP Sessions

    Hi Cloudways,

    You already offer pages and cookie exclusions from Varnish settings. But you should also consider PHP Sessions for this exclusion.

    We often add a get parameter in our Google Ads, and when visitors go to our website, we would like to store this parameter in a PHP Session and post it on a form when they get in touch.

    Now we need to turn of Varnish completely.

  7. Exclude certain tables from the search/replace script when cloning

    I've just cloned a site and the script has updated the client email addresses in the database from <user>@domain.com to <user>@www.domain.com, which caused all of the clients users to fail login.

    I'm sure it would be quite simple to exclude the user tables from this script.

  9. Seperate funding for each server

    We are a creative agency that creates websites for our clients. We would like to have all our client servers under one roof, our account. As we receive yearly payment of hosting fees in advance, we would like to charge each server with its own funding amount.

  10. Disable Vanish by default.

    It never works out of the box and always causes errors on anything but the simplest sites.

    I always have to disable it on most sites whilst uploading, file scanning etc.

  11. New Feature: per app smtp host, port, username and password configuration

    Currently we can configure SMTP at "Servers -> Server Management -> SMTP".

    This request is to add this same functionality at "Applications -> Application Management -> SMTP".

    This can be a preferred solution then to add extra plugin code to each app.

  13. Add the ability to label Backups and flag them to be permanent

    Hi, I see there's suggestion for able to label backups and it's not been implemented yet so I'd like to add another vote for being able to do this.

    Also, it would be great to be able to go intot he automated backup history, and flag any one of them as "Permanent" so they don't get deleted.

  17. support forcing lowercase URLs

    It's poor SEO to be able to access the same pages of a website on different URLs - this includes capital letter URLs for any web service that utilises re-writes (e.g. a CMS such as Wordpress).

    This can be resolved by utilising htaccess with a RewriteMap or Nginx, see links below. But none of these options are included in the standard server config and Cloudways interface doesn't allow them to be added.

    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3666003/how-i-can-translate-uppercase-to-lowercase-letters-in-a-rewrite-rule-in-nginx-we

    Be really useful if this was possible. Support tried to implement the htaccess option for me, but it took down Nginx for some unknown reason -…
