    HTTP2 is now fully supported and available for all browsers. It was activated yesterday.

    Customers who already have HTTP2 enabled in their servers, need to disable and re-enable it to update browser support. Other customers, just need to enable it (done from Server Settings in NEW CONSOLE).

  2. Add Digital Ocean Block Storage Option

    Add support for Digital Ocean's Block Storage add-on. This will allow us to not have to scale entire server for more storage space. This also allows for more options away from the more expensive AWS or Google services for more storage space.

  4. 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

    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!

  8. "Default Application" for server public IP

    When I create a $20 Digital Ocean server it's because I'm looking for power! When I host 2+ applications, I'm unable to control which application is attached to the default IP. What if I want application #5 to be the primary website shown when someone visit's the "default ip"?

  9. Support Git push / pull to remote via SSH

    The current Git Deployment feature is great but doesn't support committing and pushing changes back to the remote repo. Files are changed when new plugins are installed or media is uploaded and these files will be excluded from the repo if they aren't committed and pushed.

    Users could bypass the Git Deployment feature all together and use native Git via SSH if they were allowed access to the .ssh folder. However in order to push and pull to a remote repo via SSH, Git needs to write to the .ssh folder which you forbid. I understand you don't want to…

    With the new credentials system (http://www.cloudways.com/blog/old-ssh-sftp-user-to-the-new-credentials-system/) recently deployed, you can now use all git functionality via command line (push, pull, clone …).

    This will work ONLY for master credentials (https://support.cloudways.com/difference-between-master-credentials-and-application-credentials/) as team members don’t have SSH access anymore.

    With master user now, you can create your own .ssh folder, so all git options should be unlocked.

    Please note this refers to git execution from the command line and is different from the basic Git Deployment feature integrated with our console (https://support.cloudways.com/using-git-for-deployment/), that will just pull a remote repository from the console, store it locally on the server and sync it with the public_html folder of your application and is aimed at users with basic git needs and not comfortable with the command line.

  12. Automatic Scaling

    Would be nice if we had an auto scaling feature where the server would automatically upgrade to the next level in the event a site is posted on a news site or all of a sudden got a rush of traffic.

    Example the server load is 85% the system knows to upgrade. The downtime for an upgrade on Amazon is about 5-10 mins. That's better than having your site down for an hour because the server is overloaded.

    Kyup is now live from Cloudways. Automated scaling up is available. Scaling down is not automated by now, but we are working with Kyup to make it a reality asap.

  16. 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.

  17. Add additional locales

    Allow generation of additional locales.

    Currently only

    • C
    • C.UTF-8
    • en_US.utf8
    • POSIX

    are generated on the system.

    We need country specific locales for internationalization (e.g. money formats, date formats, etc.)
