  1. UI for Excluding Images from Nginx vhost to Support webp .htaccess redirect rules

    When using a WordPress plugin like WebP Express (https://wordpress.org/plugins/webp-express/) or ewww.io, they are using an htaccess rule to redirect browsers that support webp images to the corresponding webp image files. This however does not work out of the box on Cloudways due to Cloudways' Nginx vhost.

    Currently, I need to contact Cloudways for each application I want to add support for webp images to exclude images from the Nginx vhost. After that, the htaccess rules work correctly. This is also described by ewww: https://docs.ewww.io/article/16-ewww-io-and-webp-images

    Can you please give us control of excluding images from the Nginx vhost ourselves?…

  2. Backup Time Zone

    Cloudways should allow all users to be able to select their specific time zone instead of making them do maths of UTC to <your time zone> this really will help us identify easily our backups. Your internal server functioning may still stick to UTC but for displaying at-least let us see our own time zones.

  3. staging push should have option to remove files from destination that are not on the source server

    currently staging push only does the incremental changes. so if i make a staging, delete a plugin, and then push to live, the live site will still have the plugin. There should be an option such that the stuff i delete on the staging will be removed when pushing to live. If you use rsync in the background, just add a --delete option to it it isn't that much to change.

  4. Change Varnish Cache Expire time

    I would like to be able to configure the Varnish Expire Cache setting to something longer than 4 hours. I think 4 hours is too short. I would set it to a week or even a month, and just have it clear the cache when a page is updated.

  5. Enable ElasticSearch Plugins

    It would be a HUGE improvement for Elasticsearch if we could install/enable following plugins:

    • analysis-phonetic
    • analysis-icu

    Is there a specific reason why these would not be allowed to have? I see no harm in adding them. For instance, it would enable Magento users to add elasticsuite.

  7. Use Let's Encrypt certificate for Cloudways database manager (8082 port) instead of a self signed cert

    Since we all can use Let's Encrypt for free (basic needs), why don't you automatically setup LE cert for database manager rather than using self signed cert which gives browser warnings.

  9. Can we please please get a wild card SSL certificate on the cloudwaysapps.com domain

    I am constantly deploying dev environments for development/plugin updates. Many of the WP/Woo plugins need an ssl cert to work properly.

    The .cloudwaysapps.com domain that these are deployed on does not have a wildcard ssl certificate meaning our dev environments have plugin conflicts. Wildcard SSL certs are available for less than US$50 per year. I am more than happy to pay for it.

    If this could be put in place as soon as possible it would be hugely appreciated. You can invoice me for the cost no worries.

  11. Allow OPCache Settings

    Allow OPCache Settings to be managed by us. I've tried to do it so via php.ini and .htaccess directives, but neither has worked with some few values.

    Also it's kind of annoying to have to talk to the support team everytime I need something to be changed.

    You can already control post_max_size via the “Upload Size” item that you have in Server Settings.

    This sets to whatever value you define the following parameters:

    php
    upload_max_filesize
    post_max_size

    nginx
    client_max_body_size

  13. Exclude pages or URL's from Varnish

    I would like to suggest having the option to exclude certain pages or URL's from Varnish. Most of the time Varnish is great, but in some instances it can cause issues. One particular instance right now is a very typical Wordpress + WooCommerce setup where Varnish causes the site to not save items to the cart. I did heaps of testing and it's directly a Varnish issue.

    However it would be great to keep Varnish on parts of the site where it doesn't conflict, because the performance gains are fantastic. Would be a great addition to the console.

    Cheers'

    By now we have added APC memory. Let us know what else you would want to see under Server Settings related to APC and we will make it happen.
