  1. Higher update frequency for logs

    As an example the logfile "apache_prestashop-114732-326775.cloudwaysapps.com.access.log" of my prestashop installation is only updated approx. 4 times per hour
    Sometimes it would be helpful for bugfixing if the files are updated more frequently.

    I need to change client body size to 2M, but I don't have root access.

    In Digital Ocean can not only increase the memory of the server, or the disk space, or the processor? Will not that ever be possible? It's that I see the server I have from a few processor spikes, but the rest is still a lot left over. Almost nothing to use.

  5. 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.

  11. make possible for us to use ssh-fs to mount the remote app folder locally

    so we can easily edit the remote files.

    the command is similar to this.

    sudo sshfs -o allowother usernamehere@111.222.111.222:/home/11111.cloudwaysapps.com/dasdsqdsdssgghju/publichtml/ /mnt/cw-remote-app/

    more details cold be read here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-sshfs-to-mount-remote-file-systems-over-ssh

    i know, i could login via ssh and edit the files in place, but both vi, vim and nano are 'messing up' with my source files. don't know why. some charecter encoding problem maybe. could find a solution yet.

  12. 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 = #

  20. Option to connect to Microsoft external databases

    Currently we have no alternative to connect to Microsoft bases. I use PHP and this is not possible. In other hosts I use the DBLIB driver to make a connection.
