  3. Stop New Relic Scrips if not Used

    I don't use New Relic and it is disabled on my server but 2 scripts still run when a web page is loaded. I would like to stop that but it seems this is not possible according to a recent chat I had with one of your service engineers. Could you have a look at that? Thank you.

  4. Get a full dump of an application for archiving purposes

    My business model in building websites is more similar to Wix, eg., client pays me a monthly fee and I provide hosting and design services. And whenever the client wants to end the contract (or move somewhere else) I get a dump of the files and the database, and then archive it on OneDrive. This is a fairly quick and simple operation via SSH, but it would be nice to have an option on the control panel: "One click full site dump".

  5. Have an option to spin up server with no applications + sudo access

    Hello,

    I think it could be a benefit if there would be an option spin up an empty instance with just the core OS services and files and have sudo access availble for it. That way we can spin up and configure servers to work as smtp relays, reverse proxies, etc.

    This could allow more seasoned users to configure a server to do more specific functions not usually applicable to normal use. Also you could leave out the managed service with it since we would be taking on that role with the sudo access.

    Not sure how everyone else feels…

  7. App-level resource monitoring

    I'd really like to see the ability to review stats/monitoring on a per-app basis. If we have, say, 5 WP sites running on a server but the server is slow, MYSQL is crashing, etc then we'd be able to check the app monitoring and see which apps are launching processes that are eating up the most RAM/CPU, disk space, and so on. Would help in diagnosing and give us a clear indication of which app needs to be isolated on its own server.

  8. Urgent: Domain Mapping (Need Unlimited additional domains for WPMU application)!

    Urgent: Domain Mapping (Need Unlimited additional domains for WPMU application)!

    I have a wordpress multisite application. I'm allowing people to register and create their own subsites (sub-domains) on this network.

    Under the Application Management > Domain management, I have added *.mynetwork.com and all the sub-domains are working automatically once they are created, without adding them manually. I love that feature and hope to have the same robust feature when adding new additional domains to the same application!

    Infact, that's my main problem (Domain mapping & the limited number of domains allowed per single application by Cloudways):

    Here's what I mean,…

  9. Shopware installation as a service like WP or other CMS

    Just like we have an option to install WP directly within cloudways it would be great to have a similar option for Shopware installation as well

  12. Allow changing of "Access Details" (i.e. username/password) for applications in the Cloudways panel

    Allow changing of the username/password of applications in the "Access Details" section of an application in the Cloudways portal. When servers are transferred to other people, the original email address is listed, which is a problem. I would like to be able to change the information that is displayed so that the client that receives the transferred server can access their account information, as the default information displayed is incorrect in many cases.

  13. Have an option to install Open Project

    I would like to see CW extend it's options for App installs and to include Open Project. It is a free Project Management suite that is open-source and would be a big addition to what you already have.

  14. Allow to browse and download backups

    It's very useful to sometimes be able to browse and/or download a specific backup to look for something specific and only restore that part. Currently the only way to do this is to:
    1. Make a full backup,
    2. Restore the backup we want,
    3. Find, copy what we want,
    4, Restore latest backup.

    That takes a looong time. Being able to download a backup or just browse the backup files and download something specific would make things a lot easier. Vaultpress does that and it's quite the timesaver.

  15. Laravel Artisan Commands

    It would be great if you could provide a GUI (buttons) for basic Laravel commands, such as:

    php artisan migrate
    php artisan migrate:refresh
    composer update
    php artisan optimize
    php artisan cache:clear

    These are such basic commands that need to be run at the root level of each project and if you could provide simple buttons it would avoid a trip to the built in browser ssh tool.

  16. Multiple Laravel Version during installation

    As a developer, I have multiple projects up and running on cloudways server. This is a gr8 hosting platform. But sometime when it talks about the upgrade it just completely forget about the limitation developer might be facing. Like I have hosted my one laravel project in version 5.2 other in 5.4. Now I have been working with my another project, and due to the php limitation of my server which is 5.6 i just chose to develop my project in 5.4. Today i tried to push my development in the server just to find out my limitation yet again.…

  19. Pull and select git tags in panel

    Pulling all tags of an repository and checkout through this tags is very common when we talk about git.
    But the problem is, when we work with git in cloudways panel, we don't have much options.

    And, for me and my company, working with git tags is very important.

    I think is important that you consider this feature in panel. Because move to the ssh and do this with a master credential is a big problem and has a lot of insecure points.

    Best regards.
