  1. Update Laravel 5.6

    Currently, you have laravel 5.5 version as the latest version. But the latest version of Laravel is 5.6 right now.

    I would like to suggest you upgrade laravel from 5.5 to 5.6 because currently I am working on 5.6 but your system doesn't support that.

  2. Integrate Breeze with Gutenberg plugin

    Currently, Breeze doesn't purge automatically Varnish caché when saving post updates vía Gutenberg plugin. It would be useful since new editor will be shipped by default with the next major version.

  3. Search and Replace site url when cloning application (WordPress)

    Currently, while cloing an application, the automatic site url provided to the clone is not written in the database. This results in launching (redirected to) the original website when you are typing the new url.

    The issue does not exist when the original site has been issued a domain name. Because the staged website does not have a domain and trying to clone a staged website, the database entries are not written. I don't know why. Could you please test and fix this? Thanks!

  6. Breeze cache in Multisite: Per site on/off setting

    It would be great to have a per site setting for the Breeze cache plugin in Multisite.
    There is often at least one sub-site in development which does not require caching during dev, while the other sites are all live and need it.

    We might also have different needs for our own CDN urls per site which can be set in Breeze on each subsite.

    Thanks

  7. Backup (costs): more transparency desirable and possibility to disable the backup service

    1) Backups of server is a payed service. Totally fair, but it is not noted anywhere inside the platform portal. You have to dig like 3 articles deep to find out the actual costs for backup storage. It would be nice if in the server settings this was more transparent communicated.

    2) Once you have multiple servers it is nearly impossible to find out what is actually charged per month for backup storage costs and what is droplet cost. Some reporting on this would be helpfull.

    3) And last but not least, I think backup should be optional. I can…

  8. Wildcard or Regex support for Breeze "Never Cache these URLs"

    I have a site with a number of dynamic "areas" that are not displaying/refreshing correctly due to caching. One primary area of the site is an online LMS (Learning Management System) made up of multiple lessons, topics, and quizzes. I could list each URL individually, however, it would be well over a 100 just to get started, and would also require me to continue updating the list of URLs as I continue to add new content/lessons, etc.

    Ideally, I could enter in a relative url with a wildcard or utilize regex to not cache all URLs matching the pattern, such…

  9. Notification when Elastic Mail quota is reached.

    My Elastic Mail stopped working and apparently I hit my quota. Since there was no notification - my clients lost $???? worth of new business leads. You should allow us to view the email logs and notify us if we hit our quota.

  10. Allow Supervisor installation for laravel queue workers

    As Laravel mention in its docs, to keep a queue worker deamon alive, you have to confgure supervizor.. Laravel Forge has in its default app stack supervizor installed and a UI for its config.

    Please install supervizor in laravel stack apps, Redis is great, and thank you, but we still need supervizor to keep queues deamon alive

    Queues are used for jobs, event handling, mails, notifications

  13. Add geo detection capabilities into Varnish

    Please add geo detection capabilities into Varnish, this will accelerate use case scenarios where geo detection is essential.

    For e.g. in WooCommerce, their current method to provide multi-currency that's compatible with cache is using Woocommerce based geo detection, which tends redirects the visitor 4 times to the correct URL of the page with the correct currency/tax displayed.

    Other multi-currency plugins attempt improve this but their loading speeds are too slow, drastically affecting woocommerce store loading times, and making caching useless.

    By having geo detection capabilities right in the server stack (Nginx or Varnish, which ever is hit first by visitors)…

  14. Provide newer version on Nginx

    Please consider providing a newer stable version of Nginx.

    New servers are still installed with 1.8.x which has bugs, most significantly this:

    https://trac.nginx.org/nginx/ticket/959

    The bug causes major incompatibility between PrestaShop and Nginx when HTTP/2 is enabled. Ie. you can't add products to the shopping cart etc.

    I understand that you don't wan't to be first mover on new version, but 1.8 is quite old by now.

  16. A better backup scheme

    So here my suggestion for a better backup scheme. Do something like keeping:
    = 1 - 3 monthly backups
    + 3 weekly backups
    + 4 - 6 daily backups
    This way a longer period is covered without increasing the space required for backups. You can try keeping it at 8, although 12 would be ideal as it will cover last 3 mo, last 3 wk, and last 6 days.

    Other suggestions:
    - Allow to choose the time of day to do backup so it won't slow down the server during busy hours.
    - Allow to choose external backup destination like…

    We are closing this thread as we have implemented most of the features requested by OP and other features requested by users in the comments over the years. Here is the list of the features we have introduced around backups.

    1. We added the option to set backup retention from 1 to 4 weeks.
    2. We added the option to set the frequency of backups from 1 hour to 168 hours (1 week).
    3. We introduced on-demand application backup options.
    4. Users can now specify the time at which the backups process should be initiated on the server.
    5. Users can now restore their deleted servers from the Cloudways Platform. Previously this feature was limited to support but to give customers more control this feature is now available to all Cloudways customers.
    6. Users can now restore their deleted applications from the Cloudways Platform to an existing or new server.

  17. Enable Let's Encrypt Auto-renewal to work with .htaccess redirects in place

    When a website is SSL secured (https) it is recommended to have redirect rules in place which enforce https (redirect http to https) and of course redirecting to one version (www vs non-www).

    It appears that the Let's Encrypt Auto-Renewal does not work. It will fail saying there are htacces rules restricting it from working. I am not sure if this is an issue for Cloudways to fix, or Let's Encrypt.

    In either case, the solution provided by Cloudways support is to:
    1. Temporarily rename your .htaccess (so it is not in effect)
    2. REVOKE your Let's Encrypt Certificate
    3.…

    Hello

    We have resolved this issue, an update was deployed on all customer’s servers.

    LE SSL installation is now independent of rules added in htaccess, now users just have to make sure that the domain is added in the domain section of the application and the domain is pointing to Cloudways server, any rules in htaccess will not conflict with SSL installations.

    Best Regards
    Cloudways

  18. ALLOW a Single Person (and their email) to be a TEAM MEMBER on MORE THAN ONE ACCOUNT

    Allow a way for a SINGLE person (and their email) to be associated as a TEAM MEMBER on more than one account.

    At the moment, a person would need to create several different emails to be be a TEAM MEMBER on more than one account.

    There should be a GENERAL ACCOUNT console (that doesn't require a hosting/server plan.... however it CAN support a purchased plan if desired) that is separate from any TEAM MEMBER access associations.
    On the console you should be able to see all of the accounts you are associated as a TEAM MEMBER on... and access them…

    Thank you for your patience.

    This feature is now live on the Platform. You will now be able to add a team member on more than one account.

    We will be happy to hear what you think of this improvement.

  20. Hosting email addresses

    Every hosting provider I have used allowed me to create as many email addresses as I wanted without an extra cost.

    At the moment, I need to pay for two servers because on your server I need to pay monthly for each email account. I have one server with you (I host my websites on it), and the other with another company (I host on it the email addresses for these sites.

    Could you make my and other life easier by adding an option in the app console for creating and hosting email accounts?

    As other users pointed, we have partnered with Rackspace to offer mailboxes at a very discounted rate (best pricing for very reliable Rackspace Email mailboxes that you will find anywhere).

    More information here:
    https://www.cloudways.com/en/addon/rackspace-email-hosting.php

    We don’t have plans to support deploying mailboxes on our servers as we see email as a completely different service than web hosting, that is what we are trying to be very good at.
