  1. Create staging site from backup

    Problem: Right now I have to use a third party backup solution because Cloudways built in backup solution is incomplete.

    Solution: Allow users to restore a backup as a separate application or staging site. This allows us to easily see what the website looked like at any point in the past when a regression issue happens. Also allow us to download backups, so we can pull out specific files from the past without having to revert the database and loose eCommerce order data.

  2. 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.

  3. Allow the option to create a project while creating and app

    n some cases we've forgotten to create a project before setting up the app, and would be nice to have to option to create one on the spot and assign it to the app that's being created.

  4. Remove 3 character minimum from application and project names

    In our case we often use 2 letter client codes for project names (e.g. AB) and it becomes a problem when naming projects and apps. Even reducing to a 2 character minimum would be ideal.

  7. Purge old log files from server in one click

    Old log files take a lot of disk space. It would be great if we can remove all old log files from the Control Panel.

  8. Backup Process Improvement

    Hello Team,

    As of now there's only one full backup / restore option (Server Management > Backups > Take Backup Now)

    Can you please provide some option where the user can take backup as per their requirement, Sometime developer just want to take a backup of the database or hosting files not both all the time.

    If you're providing some option where the user can take backup/restore accordingly as of now if we're taking full backup and restoring the full backup it's super time consuming for the bigger websites while they just want to take database backup.

  9. Apps List Should Show Actual App Name as Server Sees It

    Basically when I run htop on the server my aliased app name is not going to show, but the actuall server app name... i.e. qgvzzgjjzt vs ApplicationName.

    So in the screen where you list apps -
    https://platform.cloudways.com/apps

    it would be good to have the list also show the non-aliased app name.

  10. Account activity log

    I would like to see an account activity log. This could hold information including date and times, details of the activity, reference names used for - creating, modifying and deleting servers
    - creating, modifying and deleting applications
    - any activity that results in a cost to the billing account

    I see this feature as useful for general reference but also for reconciling account invoices.

  11. Allow sorting by usage within new disk quota report

    The new Disk Usage Per Application report is great, but it's missing an obvious feature to allow this list to be sorted by usage.

  16. Confusing / wrong password info after migration

    there is a wrong/confusing information in the panel

    1. Create an app, WordPress
    2. Migrate a WP website into this app using Cloudways migrate plugin
    3. In the app infos, we see : Admin panel, Password : xxx

    This password xxx is wrong, as it's the password of the imported WP that replaced this one
    It's confusing
    Maybe after a migration has been done, replace this password xxx by a sentence explaining this

  18. Remove Users from Delete Accounts

    Allow users to remove themselves from other people's accounts.

    As well, automatically remove people from canceled accounts, as it is then impossible to remove yourself from the account.

  19. Advanced Search Control in Cloudways Account Panel

    I think the search tool could be improved by adding the ability to search by IP address. Filters to show only certain servers, etc would also be welcome.

  20. Tab focus for the 2FA box

    It's only a small thing but when logging in using 2FA the tab focus isn't on the code box so it's another click to enter the code. All of the other systems I use focus the 2FA code box so it's something I'm used to.
