  1. Clone from one server to another multiple times (change user on clone)

    When you clone an app from one server to another, it keeps the same Unix/Linux user and MySQL database name, user and password. Thus, if you clone an app from one server to another, you can't repeat the process later, unless you delete the 1st clone.

    We like to start with a base WP template app and another for WooCommerce. Then each time we start a new project we clone one of those templates to the server it's going to run on. Unfortunately after we do it from the server where the template resides to a new server, one time,…

      The logic behind keeping same creds is that many people use this feature to create test/dev environments, so it is convenient for them to have it like this.

      In any case, for the flow you mention, you could clone a template from server A to server B. Then on server B, keep the first copy of the app as a template and clone it (on the same server) as many times as needed. Cloning on the same server changes all credentials, so this should work for you?.

    • 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…

        • 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 :)

            • 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.

                    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.

                  • Less drag'n'drop sensitivity

                    The drag'n'drop sensitivity of the sections in the server and app overview page are very high, making it almost impossible to click the open and close button without triggering a sorting instead. Specially when using a wacom stylus.

                    You might want to consider adding som sort of "min. drag distance before sorting" to each section to avoid unintentionally sorting events.

                    • 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>/public_html/public_html/). This is relatively easy to find but simply posting it as part of the application information would save needless steps.

                      • git deployment in a folder

                        Git deployment in Click&Go console start automatically in the document root folder. If my git repository do not contains the document root folder then i can't use the click&go console, without changing my git repository. This is avoided also if i have more repositories in the same document root. I would like the click&go console to have a destination folder to deploy in.

                          • Database panel - improvements

                            I think database panel need really improvements.
                            I would like to see in database basic columns as ROWS and SIZE of table.
                            Also collation does not work properly even if I can change it on clickngo panel. It does not change collation for existing tables.

                                I would like to select what first language prestashop gets installed with.
                                At the moment your prestashop installation comes with english and french installed. But when those are not needed they just take space in the database. Even when deleted they leave lots of entries behind...

                                So installing with the right language from the beginning would be amazing.

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