  1. Disable memcached

    I would like the option to disable Memcached. When you have Redis running, there's no need for memcached to be taking resources. I have seen sometimes it has 4-5 processes running.

  3. Allow DDNS Hostname for IP in Security

    I noticed that I can't use my DDNS as my IP in the Security Tab of Cloudways.
    Although using a hostname in the IP section could prove a slightly increased security risk, the benefit of not having to update my dynamic IP on the system, far outweighs it.
    The DDNS allows my Dynamic IP to be mapped to a URL for easy-use :)

  4. Accept custom commands for Supervisord

    As of now, the supervisord setting in the application setting is only for laravel queue worker. It would be nice if we can add our own custom supervisord configuration setting for other services. I really want to implement websockets into my application. The idea is simple, you allow us to create new supervisord configuration, then we would just paste our desire configuration into a textarea, and there's a button that we can click to restart the supervisord after adding new configuration.

    Example:
    [program:websockets]
    command=/usr/bin/php /home/laravel-echo/laravel-websockets/artisan websockets:serve
    numprocs=1
    autostart=true
    autorestart=true
    user=laravel-echo

  5. Make logging in via SSH a little more convenient

    There are two features of logging in via SSH I've grown used to in other servers that I found to be lacking in Cloudways:
    (1.) One is the ability to have some type of private RSA key saved locally so that we don't need to enter a password every time.
    (2.) The other is the ability to specify the path we want to log in to, so we don't always need to land in the root applications directory and then cd into the usually extensive path to a specific site's child theme for instance. In other servers you can sign…

  6. Downscale possibility for DO, Vultr & Linode

    It would be great to see "downscaling" option available for the DO, Vultr & Linode in the future.

    Thank you!

  8. Alert should generate if CPU or RAM Idle Usage is less than 40%

    Currently the Bot gives alert if the CPU or RAM idle usage is continuously below 20%. My point is that whenever it goes below 20% an alert should be generated each time.

  10. Add scheduling to vertical scaling

    Since vertical scaling requires that the server go down for up to 10 minutes, I would like the ability to schedule that for, say, 3am local time.

  11. There must be more than one data base creation option for one application

    There must be more than one data base creation option for one application. some times we have to create more than one database for few operations in Magento 2 but working on cloud ways we have to go far long way for it by installing another app which definitely overload server and result increase of cost if resource is increased or if resource is not increased then performance decline is the consequence.

    for example a Magento developer or user want to use a theme quick start pack he has to create a new data base and what if he already…

  12. Allow us to modify the Varnish Cache configuration file

    Please allow us to modify the Varnish Cache configuration file. Because your interface to exlude varnish with URLs or cookies is very basic, and does not allow us to configure varnish properly to work well with for example geo localization plugins in Magento.

  14. Managed ip restrictions - nginx locations

    It would be great to be able to edit the location section of NGINX so that we can restrict access to an application and prevent a WAF bypass.

  17. I want to be able to delete backups

    I can't see how much space each backup takes up (Like in GCP or AWS) and can't delete backups if I don't want so many backups I'll be paying for! (Especially for scheduled or accidental backups).

  18. Make server settings and packages transferrable or export/importable

    Context: You don't provide root access or downscaling for Digital Ocean, Lincode, or Vulture servers (3/5 of your providers). Also, you only provide 1-1 or upscaled server cloning for these providers.

    Use case: I scaled up my Digital Ocean development server to handle a taxing dev. After I cloned the completed app to my production server, I had to:

    1. Create a new, smaller DO server
    2. Readjust all of my server settings, packages, and customizations
    3. Clone each dev app individually.

    Alternative: Since you provide automated workarounds for your lack of root access, provide a similar, automated workaround for "downscaling" servers.

  19. Server Settings Default

    Make it if you don't add a number character to one of your 'Server Settings' it should just save as DEFAULT. At the moment you need to add a character in order to save your settings. I want to be able to change a certain server setting back to default but there is no option.
