    If there are any submodules in the main repository, it could be possible to pull them all.

  3. Group permissions for Teams

    Group Permissions

    Feature Request: Under the Team settings, I'd like to have a Group where I can set permission for the group of people instead of per person.

    This would make it easy to bring on new team members and add them to a group in Cloudways.

    For example, I might have an "Admin" group where I've allowed access to billing. And I would also have a "Developers" group that gives access to the console and support, but not billing.

    I hope that explains the feature well. Please let me know if you have any questions about it. Thanks!

  4. provide a way for site-administrators to view the auth.log

    When sites are hacked the first thing to check is the auth.log to see who accessed what, when. When a compromise happens we need to be able to investigate immediately and find a fix.
    Can site owners be provided with a way to see the auth.log for their site, similar to how we can currently view web access/error logs?

    Specifically what I'm requesting is live (and perhaps filtered to my site) visibility on:
    * auth.log
    * sftpserver.log
    * history of auth and sftp
    server logs so that we can go back at least a week to see if we…

  6. Monitor application wise details improvements

    On server > monitoring > summary, there is a "Application Wise Details" table. My suggestion to that table is:

    1) Make columns sorteable, so for example I can sort by disk usage, cpu, or memory.
    2) Make Disk usage unit consitent, to easier make a comparison, right aligned, always 2 decimals and always using MB
    3) Separate the Last update column

  7. Invert Redis Controls on Manage Services tab

    I would like to kindly ask the UX/UI relevant Developer, if it could be possible to invert the Stop and the Restart controls on the "Mana Services" tab on the Platform.

    Since it's below all the Restart controls, I oftenly Stop Redis instead of Restarting. I assume this isn't a very hard update to make, and would improve a lot the UX on the Platform Hope it can be done, cheers!

  9. Cloudways should have a control panel with file manager . file updates should not be limited to FTPs or SFTPs

    FTPs are very slow .it is more convenient to have a file manager which most hosting platforms do. There we can upload large zipped files with convenience.

  13. WP CLI Upgrade to latest version

    The version of WP CLI is very far behind on WordPress deployments. The version that is being deployed is 0.24.1 while the latest is 2.3.0.

    Currently, we are unable to upgrade it because root access is not provided and the /usr/local/bin/wp file cannot be edited.

    If this cannot be done, a better solution would be to grant access to allow editing of .bashrc file so we can map our own custom wp-cli file instead of using the default one.

  14. Allow more than one SSL Certificate per Application. SAN or WILDCArd SSL does not solve this problem

    More than one SSL should be allowed to be installed on per-application bases. SAN SSL or Wildcard SSL does not cover this case.

    This is what I mean.
    When running a Wordpress multisite network with subdomains as subsites, wild card SSL can only cover the subsites and the primary domain name.
    If you intend to map custom domain names to individual subsides, this becomes impossible. Even though a SAN certificates can cover this, it has its limits of only 100 domains. This is essentially limiting your business to only 100 customers.

    This is already possible with hosting accounts running Cpanel.

  15. Please make ElasticSearch Java Options available.

    There should be at least settings to change the ElasticSearch Java options so we could adjust the heap size to some degree.

  16. Nginx to conditionally serve WebP format images if they exist.

    at the moment .webp images are being served by apache.
    they should be served by nginx and cached just like jpg/png.

    Also if the .webp file exists next to the jpg/png serve it to browsers that support webp instead.

    ```

    http config block

    map $httpaccept $webpext {

    default "";
    
    "~*webp" ".webp";

    }

    server config block

    location ~* ^(/path/to/your/images/.+).(png|jpg)$ {

    set $img_path $1;
    
    add_header Vary Accept;
    try_files $img_path$webp_ext $uri =404;

    }
    ```

  17. Wordpress Manager

    I am well aware of apps like InfiniteWP and ManageWP. The best thing about them is the bulk core and plugin update management. However, it sucks to have ANOTHER service to add and manage to your websites.

    It would be AWESOME if CloudWays began to build some of these features into the control panel. It makes the most sense to have them in one place.

    CloudWays, have you considered building any features like this?

  19. Limit application to disk space

    The disk space reporting is very helpful. It would be even more helpful to limit application to a specified disk space.

  20. Add option for password protection for all apps, not just staging

    This is a great feature for the staging sites, however, we often run into the instance where we are doing a new website build for a client and don't already host their primary site. In this case, we are setting up a standalone app for the new project, but would also like to have to ability to turn on password protection as if it were a staging site.
