  2. Support deployment via AWS CodeCommit

    Currently, you support deployment via Github. But our projects are in AWS CodeCommit, not Github. We request you support AWS CodeCommit.

  3. Allow users to enable/disable curl on individual applications

    I am developing a WordPress plugin and need to test behaviour on different server settings (eg curl) in a live environment.

    Would be helpful if:

    • Users could control this without needing support from Cloudways team
    • It were possible to toggle curl on a per-app basis (don't want to disable on all apps, just the one I'm testing).

    *Otherwise please provide me a free dev server that stays within my total resource limits if it's only possible to disable/enable server-wide.

    save server configuration & power off servers to save money.

    To be able to either - turn off as server and not get charged.
    or
    save a server configration, then remove the server. When spinning up a new server you can choose from the save configuration

  6. More options to customize the server.

    For customers who dont want a full stack application server and want to use the server only as a webserver (using apache or nginx), it would be great if you can provide such an image as an option.
    All the other services running on the server unecessarily consume server resources even if they are not being used.
    Alternately, if you can grant the master credentials the ability to start and stop specific applications like mysql etc, via a custom script or via a setting in the console ui that would also work.

  8. allow creating sFTP account from the sub accounts (admin Privilege)

    allow creating sFTP account from the sub accounts (admin Privilege)
    but I also suggest to be an option in the primary account so the main account can decide if he want to share it or not

  9. Provide a warning about resizing disk quotas taking the site down while it's processing

    I clicked the button and it just did it, and whammo, my site was down without a confirmation or warning. There really should be something there that allows someone to stop it if it's an accidental click, or they might want to arrange/schedule downtime...

  10. Domain forwarding

    In cPanel I can easily create forwarding rules for specific domains/subdomains, without having to work in .htaccess. Would be great if there is some interface for this in Cloudways too.

  11. Permit for the specific country

    I really like to permit the connection to the particular website only for the assign country which the website is targeting its country. Although the site is in the local language like (https://londonlogodesigns.co.uk/) and there no other clauses to permit of other language or country asisdes from google bots.

  12. SQL Migration Guru

    Having no option but to use the latest version specially on the database side part, hopefully you will provide some migration guide or help for some lower or other version of SQL server. Like for example on our end, MariaDB is throwing Error 1349 wherein it is fully acceptable on MySQL 5.7.19. This is now becoming a major factor on us availing your service.

  14. add elasticsearch settings to "SETTINGS & PACKAGES - ADVANCED"

    Under "SETTINGS & PACKAGES - ADVANCED" various parameters can already be adjusted today, e.g. for PHP and MySQL.
    Please add "ElasticSearch".
    e.g. the parameter: "indices.query.maxclausecount."

    Note: between the parts
    max clause count is always a _
    Unfortunately this is changed in the view to italic text.

  15. static ip

    In Amazon Lightsail I can add to my server a static IP address - that way I do not need to change the IP on DNS everytime I increase / decrease server size.

  16. Make logging in via SSH a little more convenient

    There are two features of logging in via SSH I've grown used to in other servers that I found to be lacking in Cloudways:
    (1.) One is the ability to have some type of private RSA key saved locally so that we don't need to enter a password every time.
    (2.) The other is the ability to specify the path we want to log in to, so we don't always need to land in the root applications directory and then cd into the usually extensive path to a specific site's child theme for instance. In other servers you can sign…

  17. encoding

    We should be able to set PHP/Apache/nginx encoding as it's done for mysql.

    current seems hardcoded as UTF-8

    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
    Server: nginx
    Date: Tue, 28 Apr 2020 09:50:13 GMT
    Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
