  2. Email forwarding option with Rackspace Hosted Email

    I use the rackspace addon and have 7 maiboxes, covering 3 domains.

    Because the email is with rackspace I have set my Mx records to use their servers, however there is no option for auto responders, catchall or most importantly email forwarding.

    Im able to forward from a mailbox to another account, but I cannot just have a simple forward. This is very restrictive because it means for each email address I want to use I have to buy another mailbox, even if no mail ever sits in the box.

    As an example I have
    staff1@mysite.com
    staff2@mysite.com
    staff3@mysite.com
    all of…

  4. Provide EU location for Rackspace emails

    It would be great if you could specify where the emails servers were located for the Rackspace add on.

    Currently I believe they store all their email accounts in Virginia, but maybe some pressure from one of their big resellers to also provide a location in EU would be beneficial.

    Some organisations would need to have their emails stored within the EU and not on US servers.

    Hi Paul,

    Understand your problem but don’t think we are big enough to put the kind of pressure needed for this. Currently they only offer mailboxes in US and, for what we know, have no plans to support mailboxes in EU.

    In any case, we have raised this already with our Rackspace manager and will add the feature as soon as they have it available.

  5. PLEASE add Email Forwarding!

    All other hosts very easily allow you to add a forwarding email address. I dont see any option to add a forwarding email address. Except to buy an actual email box (which I dont need) for $1 each a month.

  6. Add www.sparkpost.com as standard email add-on

    Would be great to have sparkpost as a standard email addon like mandrill and the ohter ones that are allready supported. They have a great free plan which enables up to 100 000 free emails which would benefit a lot of small scale users

  7. Please add FTP support

    SFTP is not available always. My clients need to be able to FTP the profile of a product/property via FTP as an XML file, for example.

  8. 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…

  10. 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.

  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.

  13. Loggly App Addon

    I would like to be able to deploy Loggly to my servers, however with limited access I am unable to perform this.

    I would be very handy if Cloudways gave the option to deploy loggly with a few clicks.

    All I really want is access to the apache log files, for all the servers across our accounts in one centralised place.

  14. Better New Relic Alerts

    The New Relic Alert email messages sent by the system are not helpful.

    The messages reference an application ID such as 'wordpress-000-00000-00000.cloudwaysapps.com.' This does me no good at all. I have more than a dozen servers, many of which have multiple apps.

    Without going into each individual server and checking the cloudwaysapps addresss for each of its apps, I have no way of knowing which app is actually generating this error. These errors need to provide two pieces of additional information to be useful 1) the name of the server, and 2) the name of the app. In both cases,…

  15. How to setup the sender mail for each website, please?

    Hi,

    I am using Gmail SMTP for current server, which related email is sinoceo@hotmail.com.

    Now I am testing Magento website, which when customer place order or signup, the Magento will send related email to the customer but the sender always is honestyplus@gmail, which is our Gmail account for Gmail SMTP. But we need the sender if what we setup, such as info@thumbpackaging.com for thumbpackaging.com website. So how we should setup, please? I believe it's related with the server because I am also using other server from Knownhost.com, which we launched many websites and the sender both are different according…

  16. Cloudways should partner with ewww.io to bring their tool as a MediaWiki extension

    ewww.io has a magnificent Wordpress plugin that can batch optimize images in directories, even outside the wp-uploads directory. To have this capability in MediaWiki installs would be a huge improvement in the lives of administrators of MediaWiki websites that deal a lot with images. To get bulk optimization of gifs, jpegs, pngs, it would be great. I have pitched the idea to ewww.io before, but I think they don't have many resources. If CloudWays could support them in a way, it would also benefit all the CloudWays customers with huge MediaWiki installations
