  3. I want to be able to delete backups

    I can't see how much space each backup takes up (Like in GCP or AWS) and can't delete backups if I don't want so many backups I'll be paying for! (Especially for scheduled or accidental backups).

  5. 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).

  6. Being able to adjust MaxRequestWorkers MaxConnectionsPerChild config

    It would be great to to adjust MaxRequestWorkers MaxConnectionsPerChild in the control panel rather than have to ask cloudways support. When using PHP-FPM (which is now the standard with cloudways hosting) adjusting these settings to your own needs is really beneficial and prevents memory outages/site down time.

  7. PHP-FPM Pool Process Manager (pm) Settings

    Being able to set these in the Settings & Packages section would be great.

    pm.maxchildren = # The hard-limit total number of processes allowed
    pm.start
    servers = # When php-fpm starts, have this many processes waiting for requests
    pm.minspareservers = # Number spare processes php-fpm will create
    pm.maxspareservers = # Max number of spare (waiting for connections) processes allowed to be created
    pm.processidletimeout = #

  9. Add option to enable mod_rewrite for clean URLS in Drupal

    When going through the installation of Drupal 8 there is a warning indicating clean URL's are disabled. Drupal 8 comes with clean URL's enabled by default and can not be disabled. The only reason the setup script would show this warning is if mod_rewrite was not setup in Apache.

    Is there currently a way to enable mod_rewrite? If not please include it as an option to enable via the server settings. This is a potential deal breaker for me. Not having this option will prevent me from installing Drupal 8

  10. Need More DigitalOcean Plans

    I am Cloudways users for over 2 years now. As you see at https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing/, there are options of $5, $10, two $15 plan(different CPU), $20, $40, $80 plans. It can be helpful for users who need more faster server 3v CPU instead of 2v can go for it.

    And DO plans have been upgraded long back but savings hasn't been passed to customers in this regard. Please look into this.

  12. 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.

  14. Add option to disable MySQL in the Server Management tab.

    Most of my apps use dedicated MySQL servers hosted elsewhere, so having the extra overhead from just running and storing the MySQL service on the servers provisioned by Cloudways is something I want to get rid off.

    Also, horizontally scaling apps also makes MySQL service redundant, since all of the servers still need access to the same database.

    In essence, just add the option to disable MySQL, in the same way there is a "Disable" button next to Varnish.

    Regards!

  16. Add an option to configure Output Buffering (output_buffering) for php under Server settings and Packages

    It would be nice to be able to configure Output Buffering (outputbuffering) for php and apply it server wide. Joomla Recommends turning Off outputbuffering for full compatibility. It is a better option to have this capability than to create a custom php.ini file and then uploading it to each and every application that needs it.

  18. Allow us to modify the Varnish Cache configuration file

    Please allow us to modify the Varnish Cache configuration file. Because your interface to exlude varnish with URLs or cookies is very basic, and does not allow us to configure varnish properly to work well with for example geo localization plugins in Magento.

  20. Exclude Varnish by User-agent

    When I keep Varnish activated, my user-agent sniffing rule doesn't work always.

    Usage example

    Return 404 for X user-agent

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPUSERAGENT} .(X).$ [NC]
    RewriteRule .
    - [R=404,L,NC]

    This is a big problem for a common use.
