  1. new hosted exchange feature

    I'm an old user but recently I purchased hosted exchange services from another company. I like their usability but I'm more of a cloudways fan. Please I urge you do make your Cpanel like https://www.theemailshop.co.uk/hosted-exchange-email-uk/ as I want to continue your uptime services

  2. Creat auto-clear cache option for Breeze cache after plugin updates

    I have auto updates enabled, and each time the site is broken until breeze cache is cleared. I notice breeze can be auto-cleared on posts and page updates, but is there no script I could add that would allow it to clear on plugin updates?

    There have been several security issues recently that have required sites to be updated immediately. Several plugins have had zero day vulnerabilities that require immediate attention. I have too many sites to update manually as quickly as the plugin authors would like.

    Enabling auto-updates on plugins is a great solution, but Breeze cache is the…

  3. Is it possible to get notifications when security patches etc are installed on our servers?

    Is it possible to get notifications when security patches etc are installed on our servers?

    One of our websites was down for over 12 hours yesterday and took us a full day to debug and resolve. This appears to have been caused by a php patch upgrade which caused a memory leak in a Symfony package. Because we had no knowledge of a patch having been installed on our server this made the debugging process much more difficult.

  7. Current MySQL Breaks Export, Import Database With Virtual (Generated) Columns

    I have this database with a table that has 2 generated (virtual) columns. I exported my database using your built-in database manager. Then I imported the SQL using the same tool. Unfortunately, there's an error, and it said that values are not accepted for virtual columns. Upon checking this bug reports: (1) https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=79148 , it says there that the bug is already fix in higher version of MySQL.

    Please update the available MySQL version, please.

    What I did just to get around with the bug was to manually delete the exported virtual columns with their values in the exported SQL…

  8. Update FFmpeg 3.2 to version 4.0

    Having checked with Support team, they suggested that i post a request here.

    The current version of FFmpeg supported on the Cloudways platform is v3.2. I would like to request that this is updated so that we have the option to use Version 4.0 since this is the latest version (at time of posting) and contains a number of fixes and new features.

    https://www.ffmpeg.org/download.html#release_4.0

  12. Update Git

    Cloudways is still running Git 2.1.4 released on 18-Dec-2014. A handful of really neat features have been added to Git since then. One new feature that would be very helpful to have on Cloudways servers is the updateInstead option for the receive.denyCurrentBranch config added in Git 2.3, which allows pushing directly to the server even if the branch is checked out on the server. This would eliminate the need to set up a repository on an intermediary server. Users could just add their Cloudways server as a remote in their local git repository and push directly from there to the…

  13. Update cURL to a more recent version

    The version of cURL on my server is 7.38.0 which is 3 years old. Perhaps it's time to update?

    I can't point to a specific problem with that version or any features in newer versions that are needed, but it would preclude WP plugin authors from pointing to an outdated version of cURL when troubleshooting problems.

  14. Update Drupal 8 Version in the one click install

    I suggest to update Drupal 8 one click install to the Latest and recommended version. As of the date of this idea post, the recommended version is 8.3.7
    Due to a security fix, it is recommended to update

    Alternatively, users can use Drush as it is included in the Cloudways Stack, as follows:

    1. Put the site in Maintenance mode via Drush : $ drush sset system.maintenance_mode TRUE

    2. Clear cache via Drush : $ drush cache-rebuild

    3. Run the update via Drush : $ drush pm-update drupal

    4. Take the site out of Maintenance mode via Drush : $ drush sset system.maintenance_mode FALSE

  15. Please upgrade to the latest PrestaShop stable release!

    Current Cloudways version for PrestaShop is v1.7.2.0, which was released on July 20, almost two months ago. There's been already 3 additional STABLE releases.

    When do you intend to upgrade PrestaShop and/or how can I upgrade my application?

    There's some bugfixes there that are really important to me.

  16. Update pear for compatibility with your PHP7 servers

    The current version of Pear on Digital Ocean servers is not compatible with PHP 7. Pear needs to be upgraded to 1.10. There are others which could be updated/added as well, such as php7.0-mbstring & php7.0-zip.
