  1. Include Google Compute Engine as a cloud provider

    Include Google Cloud Platform as an Infrastructure Provider. Google's infrastructure is probably the best in the world, and a great alternative to Amazon's AWS and DigitalOcean.

    In addition, it's price can go as low as $6.05/mo.

  2. Stop Relic from SPAMMING me

    I'm getting dozens of emails per day from RELIC. When I try to unsubscribe, it takes me to a subscription page (no unsubscribe option). When I look at my services in your applications console, it says it's turned off. I DO NOT WANT THIS SPAM.

    Chris, these issues are better and quicker addressed through our support portal than in the feedback page.

    In any case we have taken a look:

    • New Relic service was started from console. I have now stopped it.
    • Also I have disabled all alerts from your New Relic account, so now you shouldn’t receive any more alerts from New Relic. If at some point you want to use it, you will have to start the service and re-enable the alerts.

    We have created a KB where we are adding information about New Relic:

    This is now completed.

    Under Server Settings & Packages section (Server tab) you can replace mysql with mariadb.

    Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure
    that all the applications in the server will work with the deployed database.

    Enjoy!

  5. Spell WordPress correctly

    WordPress is spelled with a capitol P. All over Cloudways spells it with a lowercase P.

  6. When will you support in full Magento 1.9.1.0 with MySQL 5.6 and PHP 5.5 ?

    When will you support in full Magento 1.9.1.0 with MySQL 5.6 and PHP 5.5 ? From Magento website: Better site performance and security, now that Magento Community Edition 1.9.1 works with MySQL 5.6 and PHP 5.5. MySQL 5.6 offers merchants improved site speed and scalability, reduced memory usage, and enhanced debugging tools, while PHP 5.5 provides security improvements and ensures merchants have continued access to PHP code updates.

  8. For WordPress Installation and W3 Total Cache

    The W3 Total Cache plugin, General Settings, should have the Minify and Database Cache methods pre-selected, like the Page Cache, Reverse Proxy

    These should be pre-set like the Page Cache, Reverse Proxy, etc..

    Not a high priority but useful for those new to Cloudways.

    Even when I disabled varnish on Magento and cloudways, I was unable to add product to the cart. Empty Cart.

    Auto Installation is not corrupted, You will need to disable PageCache by Phoenix (magento extension) to get rid of the scattered text. This you can do it easily from magento admin.

  10. Redis

    Redis cache is effective in session managment for magento applications

  12. Menu link to https://support.cloudways.com 24/7 support from Application Console

    It's super annoying that when you're in the application console, you have to click Member Area, then click 24/7 Support to get to https://support.cloudways.com. I have them bookmarked now, but it would be nice to get from one to the other. I don't spend much, if any time in the members area. The main 2 places I use Application Console & Support. It would be so nice to be able to get from one to the other quickly.

  13. Add the Date of Credit Card (CC) successful authorization and update

    I used to work in an online payment provider, so I see that you can not display most or any of the payment information. So my only feedback could be that it could be a big help for a customer to see the last suceccful payment information date/time. This info should be or can be imported into your system from the payment provider, and makes us sure that our last update were successful.

  14. Add Drupal Drush command pm-update, currently does not work

    Add Drupal Drush command pm-update, currently does not work. In order for this to work, users need permission to write to a file outside of the http root directory. This should be pretty straight forward to create a dir users can write to outside the http root dir. A dir like this could be used for a number of benefits.

  17. Modern new user interface - Click&Go

    Some plans to do better interface of your panel ? I know that its not so critical than functions, but still interface need to follow great function :)
    If you check your partners DigitalOcean or now even new beta SendGrid panel it looks nice, clean and simple.

    This panel looks little bit oldies for that kind of quality technology what you offers. I think your quality service deserve also quality user interface.

    My view is, that ''member area'' looks nice and it would be much better if also panel looks similar way.

    I understand that you use many external systems…

    So, a bit later than expected but our new console & website are here!. Console, while keeping the simplicity and usability of previous one, is now much nicer and modern (fully developed using Google Material-design guidelines).

    You have a link to test it inside the old console. After receiving feedback and doing the necessary improvements will set it as default.

    You can leave your feedback through a survey accessible inside the new console.

  18. Add Linode As A Hosting Provider

    I have tested Linode myself and found it better than many hosting providers and is also recommended by many websites and companies like WPEngine. As a CloudWays customer I want to suggest that it will be more better for CloudWays (for more sale) and for its customers (for better services) if you add Linode as a hosting provider as you have already added Amazon & Digital Ocean.

    Best Regards,
    Aamer

  19. Wildcard Subdomains for WP Multisite App

    When using WP multisite with subdomains, it's a real pain to have to add each subdomain to the app control panel to make it work. Wildcard subdomains are the preferred method, since you only have to set it up one time. After that WP controls subdomains, and so no additional info is required.

  20. Add feedback.cloudways.com to the Member's Area and Site Footer

    It would be great if the feedback platform could be directly linked from the Member's Area and the Cloudways site footer.

    I always forget how to get back here and I'm sure a lot of customers potential and otherwise would be pleased to see you have taken the time to set a platform like this up!
