  1. Control Panel Option to Clear Swap Memory

    Sometimes you run in to an issue where you "run out of memory" when upgrading modules or magento. You can force unlimited memory with composer or php, but the system only has so much swap and physical RAM. Often times, clearing the swap mem is enough to allow the command to run successfully. Since this can only be done with root access, it would be great to have this feature added in to the control panel so we do not have to contact chat support to do this every time.

    Yes, upgrading the server is the solution, but when in…

  4. Use Rsync to tremendously speed up staging site push/pulls

    The tool is already installed! It just needs to be used when pushing/pulling.

    Rsync is a command that only copies unidentical files between two servers. It was created exactly for situations such as pushing or pulling from/to a staging site. If Cloudways where to take advantage of rsync, push/pulls would be much faster.

  5. Group permissions for Teams

    Group Permissions

    Feature Request: Under the Team settings, I'd like to have a Group where I can set permission for the group of people instead of per person.

    This would make it easy to bring on new team members and add them to a group in Cloudways.

    For example, I might have an "Admin" group where I've allowed access to billing. And I would also have a "Developers" group that gives access to the console and support, but not billing.

    I hope that explains the feature well. Please let me know if you have any questions about it. Thanks!

  8. Search by domain

    In the search server or application field, please add also by domain. So we can easily find applications that have specific domains pointing to there.

  11. Cloudways should have a control panel with file manager . file updates should not be limited to FTPs or SFTPs

    FTPs are very slow .it is more convenient to have a file manager which most hosting platforms do. There we can upload large zipped files with convenience.

  13. More Cloudways Bot Notifications Options and Subscribe Options

    Cloudways Bot doesn't currently notify us about server RAM usage spikes, etc. Turn it into a subscription service and let us choose which stats/events to monitor.

  15. Add option for password protection for all apps, not just staging

    This is a great feature for the staging sites, however, we often run into the instance where we are doing a new website build for a client and don't already host their primary site. In this case, we are setting up a standalone app for the new project, but would also like to have to ability to turn on password protection as if it were a staging site.

  16. WP CLI Upgrade to latest version

    The version of WP CLI is very far behind on WordPress deployments. The version that is being deployed is 0.24.1 while the latest is 2.3.0.

    Currently, we are unable to upgrade it because root access is not provided and the /usr/local/bin/wp file cannot be edited.

    If this cannot be done, a better solution would be to grant access to allow editing of .bashrc file so we can map our own custom wp-cli file instead of using the default one.

  17. Monitor application wise details improvements

    On server > monitoring > summary, there is a "Application Wise Details" table. My suggestion to that table is:

    1) Make columns sorteable, so for example I can sort by disk usage, cpu, or memory.
    2) Make Disk usage unit consitent, to easier make a comparison, right aligned, always 2 decimals and always using MB
    3) Separate the Last update column

  18. Invert Redis Controls on Manage Services tab

    I would like to kindly ask the UX/UI relevant Developer, if it could be possible to invert the Stop and the Restart controls on the "Mana Services" tab on the Platform.

    Since it's below all the Restart controls, I oftenly Stop Redis instead of Restarting. I assume this isn't a very hard update to make, and would improve a lot the UX on the Platform Hope it can be done, cheers!

  20. Applications Window

    Please add the ability to choose how many Applications will load up onto the Applications page at any one time, it's really annoying having to click to cycle through the applications 10 at a time.

    I'd like to see the option for 10, 25, 50, 100 or all to be added here.

    It would also be good if these projects could be drag and drop sorted into an order that works for us as developers. Maybe add colour coding for which Server any project is on too.
