  1. Static HTML stack

    We'd quite like the ability to specify a HTML-only stack with PHP disabled and no database. While this might seem an odd request, we sometimes have the need for temporary holding sites, additional sub-sites, etc. It's potentially also of use with headless CMS sites. Having related sites on the same server / within the same interface is useful.

    While I realise we can use the PHP install for this, I'd prefer something that has code execution properly disabled from the start.

  2. Option to connect to Microsoft external databases

    Currently we have no alternative to connect to Microsoft bases. I use PHP and this is not possible. In other hosts I use the DBLIB driver to make a connection.

  3. When you clone an application the restore points should also be cloned

    When cloning applications it should be a checklist where you can choose if you want restore points to be cloned as well

  4. Reset File Permission needs special config for some folders

    Based on the ticket (Request #49749) I suggest this idea to solve 2 issues with Reset File Permission in Magento:

    1 - while the reset permissions button takes the permissions of folder to default master user (public_html/var/session/) and this terminates any on going sessions as magento is unable to write in the same session as the permission on the session file is overwritten

    2 - the reset button will prevent also the user (web user different from Master user) to create new log files in (/public-html/var/log/)

  5. Enable Encrypted RDS MySQL Database

    Enabling Encrypted MySQL Database on Amazon AWS would enable encryption at rest and improve security.

    This would be a truly unique offering (trust me, I have been researching this for days), one that I can't believe isn't more requested or offered given the hacks and breaches we have seen over the last few years.

  6. 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.

  7. Ask for a confirmation when "Removing" git repo from "Deployment via Git"

    When removing Github repo from "Deployment via Git", please ask for a confirmation first. I clicked Remove button by accident, then had to set it up again.

  8. Put the Application URL on the front screen.

    have 70 websites across 5 servers, its hard to know which are live and which are DEV sites. Putting the URL on the front page would make this much better to manager, I could tell at a glance which was dev vs live. Also, on the link to go to the website from the console, I cannot right click the link and open in a new tab, so this prevents me from keeping my place in my long list of 70 applications

  9. Registration process using form instead a chat?

    Why I need to answer so many question on registration, and had to wait customer service? Why not using a form or something faster?

  10. Vultr DNS Integration

    Vultr has a free DNS service for all of their customers. It would be awesome if Cloudways could integrate this somehow.

    I did reach out to Vultr support to see if I had access since I had a Vultr server but it was through Cloudways. I figured I wouldn't but it doesn't hurt to get more information. This was the response.

    -- Vultr.com Support Team --
    "If you signed up through Cloudways, you would not be able to have access to Vultr DNS since it requires a direct account with us I'm afraid, unless Cloudways adds Vultr DNS Integration in…

  11. A Package for DevOps

    I am currently in the process of moving my sites from cPanel based hosting env. to Vultr, DO, and Linode.

    I think everything you guys offer at CW is pretty great, except you folks do not provide us with root access. That's a bummer!

    I think you folks should create a new package for DevOps or just for developers who are interested in having the root access. This package will offer everything your platform offers, the custom panel, staging area, security management and stuff but it would also provide root access.

    Devs would know what they are doing. You'll be…

  13. Renaming Apps = Multiple App folders

    Please make it possible to delete/remove/hide/tidy the multiple app folders which appear on renaming apps. Surely 1 App = 1 folder!

    It's small thing that makes a bug difference for managing and organising applications via SFTP.

    Thanks

  15. support the Cross Browser Testing Tool(chrome&firefox mainly) as one option of Application

    Hi Team,
    pretty disappointed when i don't see the Cross Browser Testing Tool(chrome&firefox mainly) in the Application's option, just for your reference(https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=browser+testing), it's a widely used Application, i don't demand too fancy functionality out there by cloudways.com, but just expect to have the basic functions with this related, e.g: can open browsers, install extensions/add-ons, can upload test files as https://crossbrowsertesting.com/ provides currently. that's it!

    Thanks for consideration.

  16. Allow changing Varnish config file (VCL) after application setup

    A dropdown with options next to the "Varnish Toggle" button allowing us to choose which VCL is configured with this application would allow us flexibility to change our stack without having to create a whole new application and reconfigure ours.

  18. install server applications from repositories

    The whole root thing drives me crazy - but i hear your reasoning. Need root to install various packages. why not let users install packages from set list of repositories ? you can always block certain ones.

  20. Integrate R analytics with PHP

    R Programming tool is used for doing analytical computations. It would be nice if the cloudways provide me some way to integrate this with my already existing PHP application.
