  1. Code a button in account detail's page that will terminate your servers so you can cancel your account.

    It will be better if you could have a button that when pressed it will terminate/kill running servers or at least it will ask you "Do you want to terminate your servers and then cancel your account?"

  4. Expose how long different parts of staging site creation take to let us optimize it

    We're experiencing very long wait times for staging site creation and would love to know how to speed it up. Some other ideas here, like selective updating of the staging site, could also help, but I thought this idea would also be good for us.

    The idea is to log when each part of the process starts — either in something that Cloudways employees can see or that the users can see. Perhaps they could even be added to the Deployment Logs.

    Often with processes that take a long time, an app will show progress or at least tell you…

  5. allow edits to nginx config

    Sometimes edits need to be applied to nginx config such as:

    location ~* .(doc|pdf|xml)$ {
    add_header X-Robots-Tag "noindex, noarchive, nosnippet";
    }

    This is not currently possible and there is no work around.

    This means that google will index lots of files that it shouldn't and can cause many SEO problems.

  6. Please make ElasticSearch Java Options available.

    There should be at least settings to change the ElasticSearch Java options so we could adjust the heap size to some degree.

  7. Read only user for database

    It would be nice to have a read only user for the database so that people that need to perform SELECT queries don't use the admin user to log in.

  9. improve time calculation for cloning operation

    When cloning a Server the needed time is always about ~8min regardless of the Harddisk/Database Size, So today I waited for about 1 hour for the last minute of a cloning process.

  10. DesktopServer version 3.5.2 has a new direct deployment feature to get your WordPress websites from your desktop to your hosting provider in

    DesktopServer version 3.5.2 has a new direct deployment feature to get your WordPress websites from your desktop to your hosting provider in just a few clicks.

    To do this Cloudways must support File System Direct.

    File System Direct is a (PHP) feature that allows WordPress to write files to the local file system on the server. At the moment it does not so we can't use this feature in DesktopServer.

  15. Allow people to increase the number of inode available to them by using the disk space they should already have.

    for the sake of example, currently I have access to a 160GB disk space server and i am only using 22 GB of it. i can't add more files because i seem to be out of inode space. Inodes are made from disk space being used as a table to map out other files. Why can't this table be increased using the space i already have access to so i can take advantage of all my disk space.

  16. Add "stdout" output to Supervisor job logs

    Laravel jobs tend to offload queues using "Supervisor" jobs. Laravel's docs show how to pipe "stdout" output to a file for reading. Cloudways Supervisor logs will only write errors, so there's no way to access the Laravel queue processing logs.

    Normally, this is set in the Supervisor job ".conf" file with setting "stdout_logfile=".

    This should be an option so Laravel users can access the Laravel queue logs, or the current Cloudways Supervisor logs should have "stdout" in addition to errors.

  18. timezone to use in logfiles

    Would be handy to specify the timezone you would get in log files. For example apache logs are always in UTC and can be configured at the apache level.

  19. DigitalOcean High CPU Instance Support

    You support high cpu instances for AWS and Google Cloud but not DigitalOcean.

    Can you include support for choosing different instance types for DigitalOcean such as their high CPU Instance?
