  2. Setup simple email or slack notification when CPU, Memory, or Bandwidth Usage Exceeds ___% for ___ minutes

  3. Provide settings to configure logging to a remote syslog server (+TLS)

    We use a centralised syslog server to monitor our sites. We are unable to link our Cloudways servers to this as we do not have root / sudo access to our own servers which is frustrating. Please can you add settings to the platform to allow us to configure logging to a remote syslog server (with TLS).

  4. Make a server setting to toggle outbound email off

    We need a simple, error-free way to be 100% certain that no outbound emails can be sent from a test / staging server. Can we have a server setting to toggle this on & off? Or even better, redirect all mail to an address we provide or to a log file to 'catch' all outbound mail?

  5. Easy text warning on Let's Encrypt failures

    Twice now I have had problems with servers where I had to wait for a Let's Encrypt imposed 8-12 hour ban from creating an SSL cert because I tried and failed too many times.

    It would be great if you would warn me after 2-3 failures that repeated attempts may cause this and to contact support for more help. Just a text reminder in the error message would be great, thanks!

  7. Server SMTP configuration is not working properly.

    Currently if you have already configured the SMTP on a server Cloudways seems to remember your previous credentials and tries to enter them again. I've just spent half an hour trying to set up SendGrid on the Server SMTP. Everytime I selected SendGrid or Mailgun etc it would automatically fill in the wrong credentials and process them. Finally I was able to remove them and get the proper credentials in. But it took a lot of my time and I'm not happy that I wasted so much time.

    This needs to be fixed.

    Thanks,
    John Anderson.

  8. GeoIP

    There was an old request asking for GeoIP to be added to PHP. The answer was that there was going to be a way to configure that on a per app basis. Is the answer to this now that you provide support for Cloudflare and Sucuri's WAF which would then push the real visitor IP address to the application (Joomla in my case)?

  11. Add rewriting support for static files

    Currently any rewrite rules setup in .htaccess are only applied if a static file doesn't exist at that URL. It makes it impossible to implement host and HTTPS redirection on static files. Either make it possible for .htaccess rewrites to work on static files, or add the ability to configure nginx rewrites as well.

  14. Add "auto_prepend_file" to enable WordPress WAF (Web Application Firewall) plugins

    Add "autoprependfile" to enable WordPress WAF plugins such as Wordfence, Ninja Firewall, iThemes Security etc.

    It would be ideal to have this option at the app level (under application settings) in order to configure a different WAF per installed app, but if that's not possible for now it's ok to have it at the server level (under server settings).

  15. Place restrictions of the transport of data from cloudways Staging to Live

    Hi

    As per the above title. I would like to restrict the transport of data from cloudways staging to live.

    Primarily this is to prevent any accidental data deletion. I.E updating a woocommerce store

    As a safety precaution I would like to prevent data to only go in one direction Live -> Staging

  16. Option to re-create database

    There should be an option to re-create an entire database. So instead of dropping all tables, we should be able to mysql DROP TABLENAME and mysql CREATE TABLENAME. I ran into a major mysql bug and my database was corrupt, even when I dropped all tables. I do not want to change the name of the database, just be able to re-create the database from scratch.

  17. Varnish exclude PHP Sessions

    Hi Cloudways,

    You already offer pages and cookie exclusions from Varnish settings. But you should also consider PHP Sessions for this exclusion.

    We often add a get parameter in our Google Ads, and when visitors go to our website, we would like to store this parameter in a PHP Session and post it on a form when they get in touch.

    Now we need to turn of Varnish completely.

  18. Exclude certain tables from the search/replace script when cloning

    I've just cloned a site and the script has updated the client email addresses in the database from <user>@domain.com to <user>@www.domain.com, which caused all of the clients users to fail login.

    I'm sure it would be quite simple to exclude the user tables from this script.

  20. Seperate funding for each server

    We are a creative agency that creates websites for our clients. We would like to have all our client servers under one roof, our account. As we receive yearly payment of hosting fees in advance, we would like to charge each server with its own funding amount.
