  1. Add an outgoing email address to the SMTP admin

    It should be possible to add a default From address for outgoing emails in the server SMTP admin section. Currently they send as [app id]@[server id].cloudwaysapps.com, which can cause emails to bounce due to validation failure.

  3. Set permissions in private_html

    Apparently, in a standard php setup, I can only set permissions in the publichtml folder, but not in the privatehtml folder, even not with the permission reset button in the cp. This makes it impossible to place my cms system above publichtml. So please give us chmod possibility in privatehtml

  4. rdiff-backup install on servers and allow access

    https://www.nongnu.org/rdiff-backup/

    rdiff-backup is the cousin to duplicity. However the difference is that you don't have to do regular full backups. The full is always the latest backup.

    This is much better for mirroring and creating local backups.

  13. 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/19048192/force-lower-case-of-urls-override-previous-rules

    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 -…

  15. Exclude Varnish by User-agent

    When I keep Varnish activated, my user-agent sniffing rule doesn't work always.

    Usage example

    Return 404 for X user-agent

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTPUSERAGENT} .(X).$ [NC]
    RewriteRule .
    - [R=404,L,NC]

    This is a big problem for a common use.

  16. Higher update frequency for logs

    As an example the logfile "apache_prestashop-114732-326775.cloudwaysapps.com.access.log" of my prestashop installation is only updated approx. 4 times per hour
    Sometimes it would be helpful for bugfixing if the files are updated more frequently.

    In Digital Ocean can not only increase the memory of the server, or the disk space, or the processor? Will not that ever be possible? It's that I see the server I have from a few processor spikes, but the rest is still a lot left over. Almost nothing to use.
