  1. add option to specify swap file size

    Normally the swap file size is configured for optimal performance of the server. However there are times that you need a little more memory even at the cost of lower performance (especially if that need is temporary and circumstancial). In these cases it would be useful to be able to change the swap file size (within reasonable limits).

    One such case occurred to me when I tried to use composer on a magento 2 app, on a 1GB server. 1GB RAM + 256MB swap is simply not enough for composer to run successfully. The only option is to move to…

  2. Edit .bashrc

    Have the possibility to edit .bashrc file to add items to PATH variable. Currently is not possible to do that as you need to have root/sudo access to edit .bashrc

  5. Remote access for xDebug

    Currently the configuration of the Cloudways instances doesn't allow the remote use of xDebug. Allowing this, will allow developers to use the Cloudways applications for development purpose and allow them to debug the code as if they were on a local environment.

  6. 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!

  13. Enable downgrade without IP-address changes

    It would be nice if you could downgrade a server without loosing the IP-address.
    Or if you could clone an application to another server and move the IP-address with it.
    This could be done by giving the possibility to switch IP-addresses between my own existing servers.

  15. ESI Includes are not working

    ESI Includes are not working on my server. I contacted tech support and they said to suggest it here.

    I have done a test here - www.preciousfaithdesigns.com/test2.html

    It is not my website, because I have bypassed Magento 2 in the test.

    Magento 2 utilises ESI includes and in production mode not having ESI includes breaks the site.

    Could you please find out why ESI Includes are not turned on for my sever? My test shows ESI includes are not working.

    Tearing my hair out.

    Thanks

  17. PTR records / Reverse DNS

    DNS is important, reverse DNS is also important within production web farms. Currently it is not possible to set the PTR record for IPs on the Digital Ocean (+other?) platforms. PTR record lookups return something along the lines of: 12345-67890.cloudwaysapps.com.

    Please add the ability for clients to modify this zone.

  18. let users disable PEAR's SSL/TLS forced check in PHP 5.6 to make it compatible with services like Mandrill again

    let users disable PEAR's SSL/TLS forced check in PHP 5.6 to make it compatible with services like Mandrill again.

    5.6 PEAR defaults currently cause a hell of a lot of problems, see for example

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25888550/cant-send-email-with-php-pear-5-6

    https://www.authsmtp.com/php-pear-mail/

    and effectively force us to downgrade to 5.5

  19. Fix Issues With Primary Domain Changes

    You might consider this a bug, but after having been bit by it multiple times, I figured it would be best to post it here.

    When you have multiple apps on a server and you re-arrange the primary domains on them, changing which app a specific app uses, the server will not properly follow your new primary domain settings and will instead load your default app. Here is how you reproduce the issue:

    1. Have an app on the server with a domain like dev.mysite.com
    2. Have a second app (your production app) on the server with a domain like mysite.com.
    3. You…

  20. Ability to use installed application folder as a GIT repository and pull directly.

    I was so excited to have Laravel installation in 2 clicks and when I see is up. Then I'd like to pull from server to my local host by GIT and start to development.... No-way. Big frustration :-( if I have an app on GitHub; I can pull it from github to cloudways but I can't use the application folder as a repository.. so what the application installations for? I hope this feature request make sense.
    Thanks

    Trevor, can you further develop this?. With master credentials, you should be able to git pull / push / clone … at will from the server.

    If you can provide specific issue and steps to reproduce it will be very helpful to assess what we can do.
