  1. OCSP stapling

    Please switch on OCSP stapling. This feature makes access to HTTPS sites faster in case of OSCP present, so avoid clients requests to CA to verify certs.

  2. Moodle is recommending that mysql databases run barracuda.

    Moodle is recommending that mysql be run using barracuda. This would be something worth investigating for all those that host moodle sites as the bigger the site, the more this will be needed. There is currently no way that this can be done on cloudways which means that moodle users will need to start migrating away from cloudways if they get big sites

  3. Add Blacklist section in your security tab

    The current server management console, has a n area where we can whitelist our IP address to avoid lockout problems. But could we also get for our servers a blacklist option?

    There are multiple WordPress sites I manage. And you have no idea how many hacking attempts I get daily. Being able to block the ip addresses from where these attempts are coming from...could really help us secure our WP sites even more.

  5. Add Postfix to Manage Services

    Suggest to add Postfix to Manage Services that allows us to start/stop/purge the Postfix service. The reason for this is one of my sites here got hacked and what the malicious php file does is spam ppl. Since it requires root access to purge the cache, adding this option would be a huge help for me and those facing similar problems.

  6. WooCommerce migrate tool, failed to parse wp-config correct

    After I used the migration tool to move my WooCommerce to CloudWays/Digital ocean on trial.
    My wp-config.php got malformed after this
    I got this
    define('WPTEMPDIR', 'ABSPATHwp-content/uploads/');
    And it should be this
    define('WPTEMPDIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/uploads/');
    I corrected this and now I can update my plugins, as I got an error message that the download/streaming folder does not exist or do not has the right permission.
    I corrected this manually and this works now.

  8. For Customers that utilize AWS on your platform, HIPAA and PHI designation from AWS and you would be GREAT!

    AWS already offers accounts designated as HIPAA accounts and they are willing to sign a BAA. Please offer this to your customers as this would open the door to many more Healthcare Industry business.

  9. Add access to Digital Ocean Private networking / local IP

    Digital ocean already provides Private networking through 10.x.x.x IP addresses for droplets in the same region. It would be very helpful to pass this setting through to Cloudways server options and control panel to more efficiently network servers.

  10. Fix Issues With Primary Domain Changes

    You might consider this a bug, but after having been bit by it multiple times, I figured it would be best to post it here.

    When you have multiple apps on a server and you re-arrange the primary domains on them, changing which app a specific app uses, the server will not properly follow your new primary domain settings and will instead load your default app. Here is how you reproduce the issue:

    1. Have an app on the server with a domain like dev.mysite.com
    2. Have a second app (your production app) on the server with a domain like mysite.com.
    3. You…

  11. Add support to MEAN Stack (MongoDB + Express + AngularJS + NodeJS)

    It'd be great to have the option to have a NodeJS+Express based web server, using MongoDB as database and with support for AngularJS... in short a full MEAN Stack ;) Thanks!

  12. Support Logstash

    To centralize the logs from our many servers we want to use logstash. This makes it easy to overview all our customers servers and catch errors in time. In order to forward logs to an external service where logstash is running the client server (you) need to install Logstash forwarder. See this tutorial: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-elasticsearch-logstash-and-kibana-4-on-ubuntu-14-04#configure-logstash-forwarder

    You would need to add a configuration form to your control panel to set the logstashserverprivate_address variable.

  16. to fix SMTP addon

    I just found out an error.

    I create a Vultr server. I explored all the addons and forgot to disable the SMTP addon when I enabled it. I had no intention to use it just to see what addons Cloudways have. Later that week when I was installing new wordpress I found out that my postfix email doesnt work anymore. After I figured it out with your cloudways support I disabled it. However the email still didn't work. I have tried to reset a dummy username to get a new password to check and also create a new username to…

  19. COLOR BLINDNESS

    A lot of people are red/green color blind. Its nearly impossible for me to distinguish that round red/green DOT that represents a server's health status. Maybe change the icon itself to something more descriptive (Server Online, Server Offline, etc.), or put a mouse-over description.
