  1. Possibility to upload server key and CSR for SSL certificate

    I think there should be possible besides generating CSR uploading own CSR and key for the SSL certificate. This would minimize time when migrating from some other server

  4. Set Varnisch cache time on application level

    Varnish hit rate is low on low traffic sites. By setting the cache time of varnisch on an application level you can beter manage site speed per application.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Create a MySQL-only optimized server

    I just want to create an high performance optimized DB server without Apache nor other modules.
    I want to be optimized already for high-performance by Cloudways experts. That's it.

  11. Enable New Relic infrastructure instead of NR server

    Hi,

    Since NewRelic Server is going to be removed and is already being replaced by New Relic Infrastructure it would be great if the New relic service would be changed so it will enable infrastructure.

    Related features would be:

    • The possibility to change the display name in newrelic-infra.yml. Currently the Cloudways numerical name is shown in New Relic and I have no clue which server is which :-)
    • The possibility to change the display name in the PHP language agent. As if you don't change both the connection between APM and Infrastructure will break.
    • The possibility to restart newrelic infrastructure…

  12. Improve Gmail SMTP Article

    I have to enable "Less Secure Apps" for all of my clients for SMTP to work. Your tutorial should mention that some people may need to do this, because it took me an 2 hours to figure this out and luckily I've had experience with it before.

  13. Can you add WebDav as standard for stacks and to also add the master user to the WebDav group (usermod -aG davfs2 <username>)

    Can you add WebDav as standard (it's a common used service) for stacks and to also add the master user to the WebDav group (usermod -aG davfs2 <username>) this will allow the master user to setup mounts ect...

  14. Add PHP Mecache as PHP extension

    A lot's of caching solutions use Memcache as PHP Extension.

    Like Simple Cache or WP-SPIDER CACHE will be a great addition and that would cost much since the extension is free.

  15. Improve cloning process

    On cloning an application, optionally allow me to specify the target url and a checkbox to specify that I want an SSL certificate installed.

    This would greatly help improve the process to get that cloned server up and running much quicker.

    Thanks!

  16. Install libsodium (a.k.a. sodium) on all servers by default

    libsodium (a.k.a. sodium) is a PHP PECL library for secure encryption in PHP. As of PHP 7.2, libsodium will be included as a core library in PHP.

    It would be helpful for those of us building secure PHP applications to have access to this library now instead of waiting for PHP 7.2. This will enable us to use encryption methods that will be good for many years to come instead of being deprecated as mcrypt is now.

    Note that there is a polyfill that can be used until PHP 7.2 if libsodium isn't installed, but it is not nearly as…

  17. PCRE version too low for PHP 7.0

    Hi there,

    as you can read here: https://secure.php.net/manual/en/pcre.installation.php
    with PHP 7.0.3 the minimum required version of PCRE is 8.38.

    Your servers still use PCRE version 8.35. Dunno if I am the first who experiences this problem, but this leads to PHP sigfault crashes in my applications (TYPO3, Shopware) and they do not respond any more.

    Any chance you're updating to PCRE 8.38 in the near future?

    Thanky a lot,
    Wolfgang

  20. 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.
