  2. 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.

  3. Offer a "Wipe All And Sync" Option for Live to Staging Transfer

    Offer the ability to wipe all files and database entries, before pulling a fresh copy from live to staging.

    Sometimes I need to redo our Sandbox environment.
    Most of the time, there are various changes to the files and database.

    When I choose overwrite it won't wipe the remaining data.

    If I delete the whole app and stage again, I have to redo SSL and other settings.

    Please give a third option to the "Live > Staging" process.
    - Overwrite
    - Incremental
    - Wipe and Write

    Thank you

  4. Update to composer v2 and add cache folder

    Please update Composer to version 2.

    Support for Composer 1 is deprecated and some packages will not be available. You should upgrade to Composer 2. See https://blog.packagist.com/deprecating-composer-1-support/

    Also, allow a user to write to composers cache folder:

    "Cannot create cache directory /home/12341234.cloudwaysapps.com/hfjhsdkfhdsjkf/.cache/composer/repo/https---repo.packagist.org/, or directory is not writable. Proceeding without cache"

  5. Display Backup storage requirements

    Cloudways server backups require at least 50% storage space of the server to perform a full backup. This mean's although they are moved off the server once complete if you are currently using 51GB of 100GB storage the full server backups will fail to run. For those that backups are important to, at least 50% must always be available.

    It would be good to have a feature somewhere in the server management that won't allow you to fill the server more than 50%.

    Other suggestion:
    - Warnings to say "Your website is 51% full, backups won't run! Free up storage…

  6. Update ImageMagick to support AVIF

    The current version of ImageMagick is from the legacy (v6) branch. Updating to the latest version of the v7 branch would allow for AVIF image format support. AVIF has been out for a couple years now and can provide substantially better compression than WebP.

  7. Gatsby (true Headless) Support

    Gatsby seems to be sinking its teeth in. It may be here to stay. True headless sites are so ridiculously fast, you can't ignore them. From my research, it seems cloudways does not currently support gatsby serving. I've looked at your other headless options and they're good, but not the same as Gatsby. I recommend you look into it and begin offering options. Thank you for hearing me!

  8. The curl version 7.52.1 is too old.

    The curl version is 7.52.1 installed by Vps is about 4.5 years ago. Is it too old to use newer functions or plug-ins?

  12. Add "Bot Protection" events to CloudwaysBot so we know if users are being blocked

    It would be great to be notified if Bot Protection is blocking users so that we can take action. Currently, I have to manually check and I am concerned as I myself was blocked a few times. Having an event added to your CloudwaysBot seams like an ideal solution for me as I currently have that integrated with a slack channel. Many thanks, Alex

  13. Enable Autoscaling for servers

    It would be great to implement an autoscaling feature that would automatically add additional resources to a server when certain thresholds are met related to RAM or CPU usage.

  14. Fix Database Manager GUI ( Enable table filtering and search fields )

    When you click on a database table, you're taken to the Select data tab, which is great. However, the header section is only displaying two fields, neither of which are labeled. All the actual labels and additional fields are missing. This means it's impossible to sort the data, filter, or search for advanced content.

    Here are two screenshots, one of what IS visible:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/yyp2meohkaxlakk/What%20IS%20Visible.png
    and another of what SHOULD BE visible.
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/qaycu7qc3h5ux00/What%20SHOULD%20BE%20Visible.png
    Hope that helps explain what I'm talking about.

    Clearly, all the form fields are already there, but they're hidden. Looking at the CSS, it looks like there are…

  15. Get VULTR HF engineers to solve scalability problem

    Particular to NJ location VULTR HF. When I purchased a 16 GIG VULTR HF, there were options for 32 and 48 available in NJ. But I cannot vertically scale without cloning and moving. I'm not able to vertically scale the VULTR HF. I understand these are VERY popular servers, with good reason, but as I expect my business to grow and traffic increase, it's not efficient to have multiple server when in just a few minutes I should be able to scale. I moved here from SIteground due to stability issues. I don't want to have to clone, or add…

  16. Make error reporting in SSL installation more verbose.

    I have dozens of domains added to my server, all with Let's encrypt certificates.

    Sometimes, I face an issue when I can't add a certificate for a new domain because one of the old ones has got its IP address misconfigured.

    Error reporting for these cases, as it is now, is not very descriptive, so I am forced to manually copy-paste all my domains (up to 100 of them) into a DNS lookup tool.

    The current error message in such cases look like this:
    Server 4: Please make sure that your domains are pointed correctly to your server IP

    Desired…

  17. Server Log

    While I was talking to support he mentioned cloudways only save log of 7 days. While doing log server analysis for SEO we need 30 days at least. Can you guys extend it?

  19. Configure email generated from the server to allow it to go through

    The cpanel currently accepts configuration values for SMTP that get carried through to postfix (or whatever), but do not allow us to set a custom From: header. As a result, nearly every SMTP relay will reject the message.

    Workarounds include generating email from PHP (usually via PHPMailer) or on the command line using mail -r "from@example.com". However by default, without any workaround, email generated by the system (such as using the MAILTO= in a crontab) will simply fail.

    I've not encountered a server stack before that takes in SMTP configuration for the server but fails to take in…

  20. Offer the option to create a new site as a "Staging" site

    Currently, new sites cannot be created with the development user/pass UI for adding a username and password to access the site. When you are developing a new site it is important to keep it from being crawled by search engines, so it needs to be behind password protection. right now the only way to accomplish this is to either edit the htaccess file or else install a maintenance plugin.

    Specifically, I wanted to create a Staging site from a site that is currently hosted on a server that has an older database. My development server has the latest versions of…
