  1. Add iowait to the monitoring system for better CPU/HDD Monitoring

    iowait tells us how much time the CPU is waiting for the HDD - which would be very useful when identifying the bottleneck on a server so we can better decide what and when to upgrade

    • Improve Server/Application Navigation in the new console

      In the old platform, it was easy to switch between servers and applications with one click -- there was always the main "Server" dropdown at the top, and then below it, once you switched to the "Application" tab of a given server, you could easily switch between the applications on that server.

      In the new console, servers & applications seem to be treated as totally separate entities, and the lack of hierarchy is very confusing and cumbersome to navigate.

      Please bring back the double-drop-down system. At the top, ALWAYS have a Server selector AND an Application selector. This will make…

        • 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.

          • Add elastic email log in console

            I really like how easy it is to use elastic email in Cloudways. However, there is no way to find out if emails were sent/delivered. We have to chat with support to check if an email was sent.

            It would be nice to have an interface in console to view sent email logs.

            • Projects - Bulk Create Projects

              Bulk Add and Edit Projects

              It would be nice to create many projects at once. Type/copy and paste into a multiline text field, and/or upload a simple .csv to make many projects at once.

                • Specify time of day for backups

                  It would be nice to be able to specify a general time of day for backups to be made. Something like morning, noon, night. Of course to be able to pick the exact hour would be even better.

                  Right now backups are being made around 9pm local time on my server and that is making things very slow whenever I work in the admin area of wordpress, which is around 9pm in the evening.

                  Thanks

                  • Show Varnish authentication key in the console

                    I followed the below guide for setting up Varnish with Magento and had to ask support for my Varnish Authentication Key.

                    Could this show in the console or something?

                    • 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.

                      • Auto-Cleaning Option for Logs (Error & Access)

                        On top of not being able to delete logs ourselves (which should be made possible - as suggested by other feature request), it would be massively useful if there was an option to set a timer for logs (both error & access) to be auto-cleaned.

                        Even if we can control the error logs to a degree (by fixing the application errors), we can't fully control access logs which is a problem because it literally means that the disk space for app is constantly growing - and if you don't pay attention it could take your site down due to full…

                        • Better Cron hinting

                          I would like to see better Cron schedule hinting. I was attempting to set up my cron tasks for a Laravel application and I had to resort to getting help from support. I never would have been able to guess the proper directory without help.

                          • 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.

                              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.

                                Please provide better control or more PHP logging options (ie turning off warnings). Right now I can't turn off certain debug output that is inconsequential, yet seriously affects my server performance.

                                  Hello,
                                  if I chosen your platform;
                                  Seems; 've always preferred speed and quickness setup.
                                  However, I am not able to set permission for my predefined files and folders by using filezilla or dreamweaver. Which is normal and acceptable! But I do not have to learn SSH command string to set these simple permission. This is not my job. Why do not you develop an application for this important issue, so we need to set some permission according to wordpress security plugins.. Then; we may need to change them quickly. It is always required.
                                  I believe, you are trying to develop…

                                      • 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…

                                        • 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.
