  2. 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.

  3. 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

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Add a button to apply MYSQL user ownership to the public_html directory

    Adding a button to apply MYSQL user ownership to the files public_html directory for Moodle will save CSR time and allow them to work on more pressing issues. At the moment you have to contact Cloudways to fix the permissions on that folder after you upgrade your Moodle installation.

  10. 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. Support npm install --global

    Right now, it throws a permission error. This is helpful for tools like gulp.

  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...

    Reason for suggestion is a well known service called BrickFTP, so this link gives you an idea at the bottom:

  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. 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

    I want to use a simple application that requires SSH2, and this is not compatible with your server configuration for some reason.

  18. Default UTF Encoding

    Everything is pre-configured and installed as ASCII.

    if I go in and change the default encoding, it is confusing. What if I want to upgrade to PHP& and MariaDB 10? In what order should the default encodings be changed? After upgrading to PHP 7?

    The Server, MySQL and PHP all have separate encoding settings. It seems like changing these at the right time during initial configuration is vital.

    So if you were installing Magento 2.1 on a GCloud server, how would you go about it?

    After the server is created, should I go in and change the default encodings to…

  19. Ask for a confirmation when "Removing" git repo from "Deployment via Git"

    When removing Github repo from "Deployment via Git", please ask for a confirmation first. I clicked Remove button by accident, then had to set it up again.
