  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. New Email Adress on New application.

  4. 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.

  5. Disable Vanish by default.

    It never works out of the box and always causes errors on anything but the simplest sites.

    I always have to disable it on most sites whilst uploading, file scanning etc.

  6. New Feature: per app smtp host, port, username and password configuration

    Currently we can configure SMTP at "Servers -> Server Management -> SMTP".

    This request is to add this same functionality at "Applications -> Application Management -> SMTP".

    This can be a preferred solution then to add extra plugin code to each app.

  8. Add the ability to label Backups and flag them to be permanent

    Hi, I see there's suggestion for able to label backups and it's not been implemented yet so I'd like to add another vote for being able to do this.

    Also, it would be great to be able to go intot he automated backup history, and flag any one of them as "Permanent" so they don't get deleted.

  12. support forcing lowercase URLs

    It's poor SEO to be able to access the same pages of a website on different URLs - this includes capital letter URLs for any web service that utilises re-writes (e.g. a CMS such as Wordpress).

    This can be resolved by utilising htaccess with a RewriteMap or Nginx, see links below. But none of these options are included in the standard server config and Cloudways interface doesn't allow them to be added.

    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3666003/how-i-can-translate-uppercase-to-lowercase-letters-in-a-rewrite-rule-in-nginx-we

    Be really useful if this was possible. Support tried to implement the htaccess option for me, but it took down Nginx for some unknown reason -…

    I need to change client body size to 2M, but I don't have root access.

  16. PHP-FPM Pool Process Manager (pm) Settings

    Being able to set these in the Settings & Packages section would be great.

    pm.maxchildren = # The hard-limit total number of processes allowed
    pm.start
    servers = # When php-fpm starts, have this many processes waiting for requests
    pm.minspareservers = # Number spare processes php-fpm will create
    pm.maxspareservers = # Max number of spare (waiting for connections) processes allowed to be created
    pm.processidletimeout = #

  17. Remote access for xDebug

    Currently the configuration of the Cloudways instances doesn't allow the remote use of xDebug. Allowing this, will allow developers to use the Cloudways applications for development purpose and allow them to debug the code as if they were on a local environment.

  19. add option to specify swap file size

    Normally the swap file size is configured for optimal performance of the server. However there are times that you need a little more memory even at the cost of lower performance (especially if that need is temporary and circumstancial). In these cases it would be useful to be able to change the swap file size (within reasonable limits).

    One such case occurred to me when I tried to use composer on a magento 2 app, on a 1GB server. 1GB RAM + 256MB swap is simply not enough for composer to run successfully. The only option is to move to…
