  1. [API] Remaining time before operation finishes

    Hi Cloudways,

    I would love to be able to display some sort of feedback to my users when querying Cloudways API. Is there anyway we could get the estimated remaining time before operation completion in the API?

    I'm talking about Taking a Backup for example.

    Currently I have some sort of a spinner, but it can take some time and I want my users to know when approximately it'll be done.

    Cheers,
    Gia-

  3. Allow backups to be older than 4 weeks

    Moving out of Godaddy makes me happy! I have struggled a lot with their low quality servers and unhelpful (almost nonexistent) support. I spent 2 years fighting with my boss to move out of that crap server (Im not even kidding)

    However, something they do an excellent job in are backups for wordpress managed plans. They hold up to 4 months of daily backups so theres a really great sense of safety net. I dont even know how he react when he know this high quality server will hold only 4 weeks.

    I hope this can be improved for anxious…

  4. Monitoring info at scale

    Hello!
    https://fluid.services/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/stats1.jpg
    It would be nice if some of these stats could be displayed
    https://fluid.services/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/stats3.jpg
    in this area when looking at all servers
    i have a bunch of servers now and it would just make my life easier to see some of that info at scale
    and I'd be more likely to upgrade something (more money for you guys) if I can see it all in a list like that
    that's it! Just wanted to pass it along as something to consider down the line! I'd consider it a quality of life improvement for customers with multiple servers :)

  6. Wordpress login page

    At the moment, Cloudways does not offer automatic wp-login page.
    So every time you try to access the dashboard, the login page prompt appears.

    Cloudways does that for the security of their customers.
    But it would be a good idea to offer some authentication cookie "persistence" that could be turned on for one day, one week or one month (for example).

  7. Add CDN support for Prestashop

    At the moment, the CDN feature isn't working 100% for Prestashop apps, there are some CORS issues which prevent fonts from loading properly.

  9. Integrate SitePad

    It's an static site generator -built by Softaculous- which needs to be integrated into the control panel. It would be useful because this kind of websites is the new trend and allows to make simple applications without installing a full-blown WordPress instance.

  10. Improve staging environment for websites that use Woocommerce + Elementor

    Paraphrasing an idea put forward for Magento sites...
    The staging area is useless for us at the moment as our users constantly post and sell products, so by the time we have finished work on the staging site updating pages there have been new products added, products sold and so on...this means we cannot merge the staging site with live as it overwrites the orders and products in the database.

    An option to exclude data specific to users, products, sales, etc, would be most welcome, so that we could push page layout and interface developments without affecting other content of…

  11. Share Application Login Credentials across a team account

    When adding new application level credentials these credentials are only visible to the user who created them, not to other users of the team.

    This effectively means that if a member of the team is deactivated or away, these credentials cannot be changed/deleted.

  12. Allow exceptions to "Direct PHP files access"

    I'd find it really useful to be able to add exceptions to this rule by specifying specific URLs you want to allow direct access for. For example AJAX calls to PHP it might be necessary to have.

  13. Sorting of rackspace emails

    I've got a growing list of domain based email accounts, and I can't manage these in anyway with the Rackspace emails. Whilst the service is great value, I need to be able to see available space per account and at least sort the email address by domain, etc. We're pretty much blind right now

  16. Show Two factor Auth status on Team page.

    Users can turn on two-factor authentification in their account.
    But there is currently no way to see if the team members you have in your team have enabled it. It makes it impossible to enforce two-factor auth and poses a security risk.

    Suggestion: Show "2FA enabled" next to team members that have enabled it on the Team page.

  17. Static site generator

    A static site generator would be a wonderful thing.
    Let be a staging domain with a CMS (wordpress or else), where I can generate the site.
    Then a static space and public domain where the site is server with cached html files.
    The export could be routined hourly, daily or on demand. The site could not have dynamic actions (forms etc) or maybe you could set some kind of api connection for that.
    This would be stunningly useful for me, and it would save a lot of resource on high traffic sites.
    Doing this on command line it's a single…

  18. More options to customize the server.

    For customers who dont want a full stack application server and want to use the server only as a webserver (using apache or nginx), it would be great if you can provide such an image as an option.
    All the other services running on the server unecessarily consume server resources even if they are not being used.
    Alternately, if you can grant the master credentials the ability to start and stop specific applications like mysql etc, via a custom script or via a setting in the console ui that would also work.
