  2. Add more file types on database import

    I found myself in a position where I had a huge table locally and wanted to import it on my database.

    CSV file ~30mb
    SQL file ~200mb

    Unfortunately, we can only import tables from sql files. Would love to see different file types like CSV, JSON, XML

  3. Use supported PHP timezones (America/Chicago instead of US/Central)

    Some of the PHP timezones listed on the basic settings and packages page are not supported by PHP. For example, I can select "US/Central" as a timezone, but PHP only supports "America/Chicago", which isn't an option. See: https://secure.php.net/manual/en/timezones.others.php

  10. scale down easily

    For most providers (except Google and AWS) there is an easy way to scale up but it is impossible to scale down. Make it possible to scale down as well.
    Applications not necessarily go up all the time.

  14. SafeUpdates monthly option for scheduled updates

    I think it is essential to have the option for monthly schedule updates. Plugin updates sometimes can break a site from faulty code, and I think it would be useful to have the option for not-so-regular updates. A monthly option sounds ideal because it will reduce workload for our developer to check on regular base the site after the updates which now the latest scheduled option is weekly.

  15. Enable Server Backups and ideally run those as part of the automated weekly maintenance

    Hello,

    Together with your Support Team we went through the accident caused by the weekly automated maintenance (SETTINGS & PACKAGES -> MAINTENANCE). Debian OS upgrade caused a crash of 3 of our key applications (one WordPress web and two node.js apps). That generated (time) costs on both sides. Our support required few days to bring the node.js apps back to work, Cloudways support was able to get the website to its stable state after several attempts distributed to couple of days effort (huge thanks for that!).

    Idea: All the above could have been avoided if there was an option to…

  17. text box for varnish exclusions in breeze plugin

    Right now, if we need to add varnish exclusions, they must be entered 1 by 1 in the cloudways control panel. UTM tracking is more and more popular, in which case there are 18 cookies to exclude. Most cache plugins simply have a text box to paste those exclusions in, 1 on each line. Having this in the Breeze plugin instead of the control panels would be a great improvement!

  18. CLOSE ACCESS OUT OF WAF SERVICES

    I'd like to be able to blacklist or whitelist some ip to make sure that my users MUST pass by the WAF to access my website.
    In this moment, if they know my server ip, they can bypass the waf.

  19. make nginx WebP redirection (vhost image exclusion) enabled by default

    Found an issue with Cloudways integration with WP Rocket plugin, particularly the image expires headers are not working. After significant investigation by Cloudways support (many thanks Ehrar for the awesome help and patience), found that the culprit is the nginx vhost overwrite that prevents the expires headers. The issue is fixed after enabling the WebP redirection in the Cloudways Application settings, which exclude the nginx vhost rules/overwrites for images such as webp, but also including jpeg, png, etc. that are needed to get the expires headers to work.

    Recommend to enable it by default, seems like a situation that many…

  20. Mini server for each app instance

    Hi, I've read somewhere in this forum that your architecture don't support multiple php versions. How about making another architecture that supports php versioning per app? It could be a mini server that caters only to single app.
