  1. Backup single applications

    Actually, we can take SERVER backups but we can RESTORE single applications. This is good but it would be great if we could also take a backup of a single application.

    Consider this : we'll deploy an upgrade but before we want to made a backup that we can restore just after deployment if anything goes wrong.

    - Actually, we need to take a full server backup, which takes several minutes ;
    - I f we could made a backup of this single app, it would take 90% less time.

    This could be placed at the same level than RESTORE…

            • 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…

                • Restrict an SFTP logins to a specfic folder

                  Need to have the ability to setup restrict an SFTP logins to a specific folder inside a website. For example, domain.com/orders/xmlfiles/. And if there is a way to restict that login to a specfic IP address that would be awesome.

                  • 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.

                      The new console (already in private beta for some 500 customers and to be in public beta from next week) already includes this (no server access option) along many more fine grained privileges that will be possible to set.

                      We are not going to implement it on old console as it should be out of the way in short time.

                    • STOP USING AJAX FOR SAVING CONSOLE CHANGES!!

                      It's slower than traditional POST/submit button. Pain in the backside when having to make multiple changes. Please sort.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Better app submission

                            The process should be:

                            1 - Type of the app (Wordpress, Prestashop...)
                            2 - Name of the app (My Application)
                            3 - Primary Domain (myappdomain.com)
                            4 - SSH Key (Yes[] - No[] and if yes "Paste you SSH Key)

                            Actually these steps means 3 app restarts and 5 minutes, with all these steps at the app creation time it would take no more than 1mn.

                                  It would be great to see what app consumes most of the bandwidth.

                                  • You should have a DNS managing feature

                                    My domain registrar only allows to delegate domain to a Name Server.
                                    It would be very important to be able to have an interface to set A, CNAME, TXT records directly from Cloudways.

                                    • Limit or throttle bandwidth in case of abuse

                                      The cost can be very huge in case of bandwidth abuse with Amazon and Google servers because charges will be as per usage.

                                      To avoid these huge costs, I suggest to limit or throttle the bandwidth in case of abuse, e.g. a maximum bandwidth setting in the account console.

                                        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.

                                        • Add dashboard for applications

                                          We have a console for Servers, where we can list all of our servers, enter each one and see the list of Applications on that server (by hitting application management and then viewing the drop-down list)

                                          I'd like a console for viewing all applications, independent of server, so we could find a specific site without having to trudge through each server screen.

                                          It'd simply act as a list of shortcuts directly into the Application Management screen for each.

                                          At the end of the day, we only care about our Applications, that we need servers to host them is incidental, ideally…

                                            Brian, this will be already in the new console to be launched (beta) sometime in December. You will be able to sort console by servers, application (independent of server) and even create projects that will be just groups of servers and apps.

                                            The new console (that you should have received an screenshot already in the new permissions newsletter) will be a huge step forward for our platform.

                                            You will need to be patient for a while more.
