Install X-sendfile on Server
According to this article below, you mention using X-Sendfile to serve digital downloads for woocommerce. It is not currently installed on servers by default, and would be great if it was. Also to provide instructions on best way to setup for secure downloads for woocommerce.5 votes
For cloud server there should be auto scale feature for resources, this should work auto-scale up and down according to traffic without rebo7 votes
One of our clients recently undertook a penetration test on their site in accordance with their ISO application. It was highly recommended that Apache was upgraded to version 2.4.28 or later as Apache 2.4.10 was reported to have multiple vulnerabilities.
Most large UK based companies will undergo a similar ISO application so this should really be completed.
I think it's essential that the servers are fixed so that if they go down they automatically restart the server especially on digital ocean + vultr
A few times I've had the site receive a traffic spike out of the ordinary and it pulled my sites down until I manually rebooted it. It should be automatic.24 votes

I had crushed in a user case which required to manage file permissions via .htaccess RewriteRules, with files physically available inside web-visible folders instead of logic-protected folders, so I had been forced to have CloudWays disable NGINX for my server.
Instead, it would be nice to have a panel where to configure specific folders with Apache-based file serve, instead of NGINX-based.2 votes
Please consider providing a newer stable version of Nginx.
New servers are still installed with 1.8.x which has bugs, most significantly this:
The bug causes major incompatibility between PrestaShop and Nginx when HTTP/2 is enabled. Ie. you can't add products to the shopping cart etc.
I understand that you don't wan't to be first mover on new version, but 1.8 is quite old by now.9 votes
The current scheme is absolutely impossible to remember. Even when renaming folders, the randomly selected name remains as the new name is a link.
That means this would have to be asked for before anything has been set up.
Usually I want to name the folder and database to the (sub)domain or the actual application name. What's easier to remember than that?
Support at least letters, digits, "-", "_", ".", unless restricted by the database engine in question.5 votes
Adding a button to apply MYSQL user ownership to the files public_html directory for Moodle will save CSR time and allow them to work on more pressing issues. At the moment you have to contact Cloudways to fix the permissions on that folder after you upgrade your Moodle installation.1 vote
Currently, application SSH user does not have such permissions to run NPM via ssh. But this feature should be available
Please enable NPM in SSH when we are using application SSH user3 votes
I would like to change PHP setting opcache.maxacceleratedfiles. Its default value, 2000, if far smaller than number of files I need for my 3 apps - there's about 30000 php files that could be cached. This is very "low hanging fruit" for performance optimizations. Please add the option to change this php setting.5 votes
The only server located in Brazil is from Amazon. The value is too high for more common applications. Please, we urgently need more servers in Brazil regardless of the provider.4 votes
It should be possible to choose different php versions on a single server. This is possible in most shared hosting environments and is a big advantage.
It is expensive to create a new server only because you need for example an old php version for a specific application which is not compatible.141 votes
Allow asynchronous (fast, non-blocking) logging via syslog daemon.
You don't even need to make it a 1-click installation for Loggly, Papertrail, or Splunk.
Just allow us to use the syslog daemon and then we can follow instructions at https://www.loggly.com/docs/php-logs/ or http://help.papertrailapp.com/kb/configuration/configuring-centralized-logging-from-php-apps/ or wherever.
Those instructions say they'd require root access (which Cloudways customers don't have), but it wouldn't require root access if you did the first steps for us.
the ability to provide a .sh script that will be run after each git deploy if the file cloudways/build.sh is found for exemple.
this way you can run npm install, or anything related to a framework deploy (symfony commands for exemple), or even database migrations35 votes

Drupal 8 installs on cloudways currently include the varnish module which is unstable and not recommended for production use. This should be replaced with the purge module, as per the project page:
Additionally, Drupal 8 has a very robust built-in caching api, which can be configured to work together with Varnish for much more efficient caching / cache invalidation. This would require custom configuration of the Varnish vcl for Drupal 8 instances, see the official drupal documentation here:
IonCube is currently not integrated with PHP 7 on Cloudways, only older versions of PHP. Please run it with PHP 7.9 votes
