  1. Require application names to be unique

    I found out today that you can have several applications with the exact same name. This can be confusing, and I suggest that it should check this before creating a new application, requiring application names to be unique.

  2. Create Own Default Custom Testing URL

    I would like to ensure that the test account we create for our clients takes our own test domain name by default when we create a new app. (before domain is added)

    eg - test-app-name.my-company-domain.com

    It would be better to automatically set our own Domain Name on the server to make sharing the test server with clients easier.

  3. Easier access to support

    Put a Support button directly on the console screen (where it says Servers Applications Team etc). There's currently no easy way to navigate to Support from that view.

  4. Make it easier to switch views

    Can you please make it so that I can click on the words "SERVERS" and "APPLICATIONS" to switch, instead of only on the tiny actual switch?

    Thanks in advance

  5. Show in Graph which processes are causing huge spikes on my wordpress website

    Just like we have the Task Manager in Windows platform and Activity Monitor on Mac, I would like to see a similar utility in my Cloudways Panel where I can see which processes are causing hugh spikes on my server resources and also I should have the option to force quit them.

    I know implementing this option is difficult, but if done it will be an excellent addition to your solutions.

  6. Control panel change

    For convenience; I would like to change the password and user name shown under ACCESS DETAILS - > ADMIN PANEL; to match my old account details. This is so that when I log into Cloudways, I can quickly navigate between Apps and websites without having to rely on browsers to store passwords for admin panels. This is why I was originally attracted to cloudways, but then realised after migrating that i had to use other logins.

  7. Not able to install the server dependencies - php-ssh2 & php5.6-zip

    Can you add these "php-ssh2 & php5.6-zip" modules my server now? We are not able to install these by using 'apt-get install' command. It shows error "E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)" . Even cloudways support teams are not able to install.

  9. Add total memory usage (including buffers/cache) to monitoring tab for autoscaling Kyup servers

    Kyup autoscaling triggers from total memory usage (including cache and buffers) however that statistic is not viewable from the Cloudways dashboard. The Free Memory chart reports the available memory +/- buffers and cache.

    This causes confusion for users of Kyup, since scaling may occur unexpectedly when comparing to stats in the monitoring tab.

  10. Chrome on Mac Errors on Forms

    Lots of admin area forms dont submit on Chrome on a Mac, for example Settings and Packages gives error:

    "settings:1 Form submission failed, as the <SELECT> element named '.display_errors' was implicitly closed by reaching the end of the file. Please add an explicit end tag ('</SELECT>')"

  12. CLI interface

    Option to enter a CLI or directory tree view of the server to delete files etc. sftp is slower and messier if I just want to delete a WordPress theme or plugin.

  13. Make it ready - like any other hosting

  14. Add a console to manage email aliases

    Hello, I suggest you add a console to manage email aliases to arrive in email boxes of created email accounts managed in Rackspace. Other hosts do that, and I like to be flexible with creating aliases. Thx.

  16. Edits needed for the basic CRON job creation

    When you create a new CRON job in the basic view it needs to put single quotes around the URL so it works for URL's with double URL parameters (GET variables), the & (amp) sign is the one who creates issues, i think.

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  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.
