  2. Can you add WebDav as standard for stacks and to also add the master user to the WebDav group (usermod -aG davfs2 <username>)

    Can you add WebDav as standard (it's a common used service) for stacks and to also add the master user to the WebDav group (usermod -aG davfs2 <username>) this will allow the master user to setup mounts ect...

    Reason for suggestion is a well known service called BrickFTP, so this link gives you an idea at the bottom:

  6. Prevent Let'sEncrypt/SSL List to Be Obliterated Upon Error

    I have multiple domains on a server/app (DO) that were typed before. Every time I add a new domain to the SSL list (after adding it in the Addon Domains list), I have to brace myself because a single typo or error (especially in a list with dozens of domains) will cause the entire SSL installation to fail and the SSL for all domains is removed. I'm aware a separate SSL is created for each domain, but you already have the multiple-domain list up and running, so if a new one is added and an error occurs, at leats don't…

  7. Have a KB/support article regarding password requirements.

    The areas for passwords: Master Credentials, MySQL Access, and Application Credentials are different. It makes it difficult to use a password manager's generator.

  8. Add PHP Mecache as PHP extension

    A lot's of caching solutions use Memcache as PHP Extension.

    Like Simple Cache or WP-SPIDER CACHE will be a great addition and that would cost much since the extension is free.

  9. GUI of the Access Details

    Please move in the GUI of the Access Details;
    Url and Username and Password.

    The Url is in no direct correlation to the username and password.

    I spent a fucking hour on support as he tried to work out why they werent working. Completely rediculous. The details are ONLY stored for wp-admin within the database mysql.

    The fact that you have SSH and SFTP on the right, and these are the username and password for them, is just poor poor GUI design.

    Would be nice if you put "wordpress login" details underneath the URL FOR WORDPRESS.

    And the SSH and…

  10. possibility to change permission

    It is hard to work with cloudways limited umask for new files and folders
    drwxr-xr-x
    the «read and execute only» for group www-data prevent extremely easy handling of own scripts.
    It should be possible to change the limited permission at least with ssh command line chmod() or php's chmod().

    Only then will it be possible to work efficiently and smoothly.

  11. Update Drupal 8 Version in the one click install

    I suggest to update Drupal 8 one click install to the Latest and recommended version. As of the date of this idea post, the recommended version is 8.3.7
    Due to a security fix, it is recommended to update

    Alternatively, users can use Drush as it is included in the Cloudways Stack, as follows:


    1. Put the site in Maintenance mode via Drush : $ drush sset system.maintenance_mode TRUE


    2. Clear cache via Drush : $ drush cache-rebuild


    3. Run the update via Drush : $ drush pm-update drupal


    4. Take the site out of Maintenance mode via Drush : $ drush sset system.maintenance_mode FALSE

  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/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 -…

  13. Improve cloning process

    On cloning an application, optionally allow me to specify the target url and a checkbox to specify that I want an SSL certificate installed.

    This would greatly help improve the process to get that cloned server up and running much quicker.

    Thanks!

  15. Install libsodium (a.k.a. sodium) on all servers by default

    libsodium (a.k.a. sodium) is a PHP PECL library for secure encryption in PHP. As of PHP 7.2, libsodium will be included as a core library in PHP.

    It would be helpful for those of us building secure PHP applications to have access to this library now instead of waiting for PHP 7.2. This will enable us to use encryption methods that will be good for many years to come instead of being deprecated as mcrypt is now.

    Note that there is a polyfill that can be used until PHP 7.2 if libsodium isn't installed, but it is not nearly as…

  16. Enable playbooks from ansible for Cloudways-Server

    With playbooks a lot of manually daly-works can do by one (1) click.
    This simplifies everyday life:
    - Prevents errors
    - Makes most complex work child's play
    - Every customer can use an infinite number of possibilities
    - Every customer can reuse tons of created playbook from library
    - clone from local to remote
    - create-file
    - change value with preg_replace
    - use variable in sequenced-daly-jobs
    - ...

  19. Better Git prompts

    It would be great to have better Git prompts so you can see what branch you are in as well as other info. This works great, https://github.com/magicmonty/bash-git-prompt.

    I use it now but I have to install it in private_html and run 'source .bash-git-prompt/gitprompt.sh' in that directory every time I log in.

    It would be great to have it done automatically in .bashrc. Or, even better, let users be able to have a personalized .bashrc.
