  2. support naming application folders and databases arbitrarily

    The current scheme is absolutely impossible to remember. Even when renaming folders, the randomly selected name remains as the new name is a link.

    That means this would have to be asked for before anything has been set up.

    Usually I want to name the folder and database to the (sub)domain or the actual application name. What's easier to remember than that?

    Support at least letters, digits, "-", "_", ".", unless restricted by the database engine in question.

  3. Allow change of PHP opcache max_accelerated_files setting

    I would like to change PHP setting opcache.maxacceleratedfiles. Its default value, 2000, if far smaller than number of files I need for my 3 apps - there's about 30000 php files that could be cached. This is very "low hanging fruit" for performance optimizations. Please add the option to change this php setting.

  5. Implementation of OpenLiteSpeed (OLS)

    LiteSpeed performs better than nginx: it transfers files faster and uses less CPU and memory.

  6. 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.

  7. SSL Session Cache

    Add the ability to turn on sslsessioncache.

    Gives a speed boost for but also cuts down overheads for not having to request new keys every time a page request is made.

    This is a pretty standard option, it shouldn't cause any conflicts as can be set individually on drops.

    This is one line for a quick gain...current SSL testing is failing on this point.

  8. Make phpmyadmin as default database manager

    Hi,

    Why don't make phpmyadmin as the default database manager. Everybody uses it. All tutorials on the web are about this manager.
    Not this cloudways default manager.

    Now i always need to do a complicated time taking installation.
    This is not user friendly?

  9. Tracked deletions in git should be synced with the server upon deployment

    Currently when using the git deployment feature, if you delete a previously tracked file and push this change to the server it doesn't delete the file from the server.

    This means you're left with lots of legacy files that are no longer needed, and your repo is no longer in sync with your server files.

    This can cause issues if you ever wanted to push changes back from the server to git as it would then track the previously deleted files and re-add them to the sever!

    I'd assume this to be expected behaviour but there might be a reason…

  11. Allow user backup settings

    Hi, I would like to suggest that User should be given the chance to set the backup timings on his own preference so that he himself can fine tune it for the time when the website has the least load.

  12. More servers located in Brazil!

    The only server located in Brazil is from Amazon. The value is too high for more common applications. Please, we urgently need more servers in Brazil regardless of the provider.

  14. please add advanced/custom PHP configuration for the server, so I just type the config

    Please add advanced/custom PHP configuration for the server, so I just type the config, so it will effect to all apps. At the moment I only able to see the custom/advanced setting for app. Not the server.

  15. Allow Server Master Credentials to access all MySQL databases.

    Having a single user account that can access all the databases under a given server would simplify administration. The Server Master Credentials seems like a logical choice.

    Currently I open an SSH tunnel for database access and it would be great if the same tunnel credentials could also connect to the databases.

  16. Providing a Test Server

    As with all hosting suppliers, Test servers are never charged for.

    For every live server, you should allow the facility for a sandbox test server.

    This will make it for anyone who has a live server to be able to test and roll out.

    It should be free and will make your package for hosting a very STRONG offer.

    Charging customers for a test server is not a good policy. You really need to review this and make it more attractive.

  17. Exclude HTML from Nginx static cache

    Currently HTML is included in the static cache of nginx.
    This results in pushing an expires 30 days header on html content request and ignoring htaccess directives.

    This is particulary dangerous, since there is no way to purge that cache unless the expiration on nginx is set to 0 for all assets.

  19. We need fixed private IPs to clone a server and attach the same IP to a new server or other workarround. Amazon has the fixed private ip.

    We need fixed private IPs to clone a server and attach the same IP to a new server or other work arround. Amazon has the fixed private ip. Amazon you buy a IP and then you attach this IP to any instance so you can create backups and upgrades easily.

  20. Server speed

    tools.pingdom.com lets me see the pageload speed of my site from various countries. I'd like to be able to compare servers before buying.

    e.g. I tried Vultr in Singapore - very slow loading into Australia. Moved to Linode in Freemont - 2x the speed for the same site.

    Took 2 days of setup and testing and trial accounts to work that out - perhaps there is an even faster server? I can't try them all.

    Just put a 1mb web page on each server. Publish the url. Now I can compare at GTMetrix or Pingdom to choose the best server…
