  1. Add tmux to terminal

    Would be nice to have a tmux sessions to use one connection to a server. This will become more popular when you add the load balancing some of infrastructures may hide child nodes from internet, but use the internal network instead

  2. Allow arrow key navigation from console search

    Would be great is after performing a search, you can press down on the arrow key to select the application required from the returned results.

  3. Allow a team member to have SFTP access to multiple applications without requiring to create multiple SFTP accounts

    Would like an easy way for the account owner to create SFTP/SSH account (login/password) creation for team members and then assign those accounts to various servers/applications.

    Account owner should be able to delete/disable/suspend account, but the team members don't need to setup or activate their own account.

  4. Hide server details from Team Members with limited application access

    When I give limited access to team members the first console screen after they login it shows the server details - server type, disk, etc.

    I want to give application access to my clients but I don't want them seeing the level of server I have them on. It would be better to either not show the server details or go straight into the application dashboard.

  6. 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.

  7. Force git pull deploys

    Be able to force a git pull deploy. When you try to deploy a significant change in the app code you get merge errors, that could be avoided if the pulls were forced.

  8. Make a system to schedule server size changes by time and date.

    We increase our server size from small to medium for class times when our students take Moodle quizzes, then we have to reset the server to small for off-peak times. It's a real hassle to do this manually four times per week, so if we could schedule server size changes in advance this would be a big help. I'm sure that many other users would also appreciate being able schedule server size changes for peak usage times.

  9. Improved mysql manager with search and replace functionality

    The current administrator is fast and lightweight but it needs a little more functionality. For example it would be nice to have a "search" option within a table and once you get the result set to have the option to modify, delete, etc. Currently if you want to modify the record 10.000 in a table you have to display up to that record and then you get the option to modify it. If you do a query to list only your record 10.000 there is no option to modify it. Yes, it can all be done with queries... but that…

  11. Be able to name backups

    It is good to be able to name backups like wpengine hosting does. here in cloudways backups are named by creation date but I think it is good to name backups manually.

  12. COLOR BLINDNESS

    A lot of people are red/green color blind. Its nearly impossible for me to distinguish that round red/green DOT that represents a server's health status. Maybe change the icon itself to something more descriptive (Server Online, Server Offline, etc.), or put a mouse-over description.

  14. Client specific billing for apps or servers

    Could you guys add in a client billing feature like they have at https://wpoven.com/?
    You can enter clients attached to applications and bill them monthly through the site control panel. It would be the cherry on top for Cloudways.

  15. Password protecting apps from console (via htpasswd)

    I want to get this option in console to password protect my apps which can be done via creating htpasswd on the server. Will reduce the hassle :)

    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.

  19. 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.

  20. Make the piwik stats system part of your app installs

    Piwik is an open source selfhosted stat system and alternative to google analytics.

    Making it simple to install and setup with high performance defaults would add a great feature to your click&go platform.
