  1. Monitor All Servers and Resources On Single Page With Visuals

    As of now, you have to click on each server, then go to resources and then select specific resource. This is time consuming. Also, the data is displayed as line graph which is very visually polished or clean looking.

    I recommend that you have a "overview" or "snapshot" area that show you the health/resources/stats for all the servers on your account. Perhaps showing colors Green to Red pie charts to show you quick overview of ALL resource (memory, CPU, hdisk, bandwidth, etc) of ALL servers.

    Thank you.

  2. Allow customization of application icons

  3. Ability to upload or enter .env information

    Be able to upload a .env file, or enter the .env key/pair values in the console. Many frameworks (such as Laravel) utilise the .env file to change configuration between dev and prod, and they should never be pushed via git.

  6. More mysql config options

    It would be nice to have more granular access to the mysql/mariadb configuration. A few more items that would be good to be able to configure:

    querycachesize
    joinbuffersize
    tmptablesize
    maxheaptable_size

  12. 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.

  13. Allow GIT Deployment to private_html

    Currently, the ability to deploy directly from GIT is limited to the publichtml folder. In our case, our application is housed in privatehtml. It would be great if we had the option to deploy from GIT directly to the private_html folder.

  14. Add option to reset back ownership of files / folder to app user (chown)

    Right now we can reset permission in APPLICATION SETTINGS, which is very helpful when you want to delete files, etc. But there is no option to revert back to the ownership to app user.
    It will be very handy to have this instead of asking staff to run a chown.

    You can easily achieve this via the Dump and Import features of the Click&Go Mysql Manager from console. We think that this should be enough for most cases.

  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. Add Full URL path to files to Application Management tab

    This is the part of the file path that precedes your document root (eg /home/<your-id>.cloudwaysapps.com/<your-user>/publichtml/publichtml/). This is relatively easy to find but simply posting it as part of the application information would save needless steps.

  19. Uninstall New Relic option on Settings & Packages >> Packages

    I would like to kindly suggest an option on "Settings & Packages --> Packages" to "Uninstall New Relic" from our servers, and this would automatically remove all those NR scripts on that server.

    I keep wondering how much Live Chat & Tickets it could save to Cloudways! This would save so many resources!
