        While we don’t yet offer Mautic as a separate application on our Platform, Mautic is at present fully compatible with our Platform.

        Mautic can be easily installed manually on any PHP Stack application on Cloudways. All that is needed to be done is to download and unzip the Mautic application inside the public_html directory of a stock PHP application, and to run its installer from the web (accessing the application URL the first time will automatically start the installer). There is a possibility that the installer may complain about not having the PHP variable “always_populate_raw_post_data” defined to “-1” value. If that happens, then that can be easily handled by defining “php_admin_value[always_populate_raw_post_data] = -1” under Application Settings > PHP Settings and restarting PHP FPM from Manage Services. Afterwards, the installer will proceed and complete successfully.

        Furthermore, any required crons for Mautic can be set up through Cron Job Management interface on…

          Work has been started in this regard, and users would be able to see disk space consumption app wise, and server monthly bandwidth usage.

          We are hoping to release the features in December ’18.

            Any feedback on this? As a wordpress platform it would be really good if we could take advantage of the new relic wordpress monitoring.

              Agreed some way to send syslog events to an ELK stack would be handy. We have the NewRelic agent running, I dont see why we cant have the option to enable and configure the syslog beats

                  Thanks Paul. Would a docker image suit the same needs?. Assume so. We are leaning towards it for the exact same problem you mention.

                  Hi Guys, another option for this is to just install apt-clone on the server. We can then use that to replicate the installed modules on a local/dev server.

                  If i could edit the title I would change it to allow us to replicate server locally. Vagrant, Docker or apt-clone are all valid ways to do this.

                  Thanks

                  Personally I prefer Vagrant it has a slightly different use case to docker, because it works with any virtual infrastructure, I think its even included a docker provisioner as well.

                  https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-Docker-and-Vagrant-When-should-you-use-each-one

                  I think the learning curve with Vagrant is less, and people can use whatever they already have, so you might find it easier to hit a wider userbase with Vagrant.

                  IF you go down the docker route, just provide a simple vagrant file so we can provision that, it is really just a single file, so would help.

                    Im going against the grain here and saying I dont want you to offer a reseller service. Your already a reseller of server space in a way. Every company i have seen go down this route, grow too fast and the customers suffer. Stick to providing a good platform for those who need it.

                          Hi Paul,

                          Understand your problem but don’t think we are big enough to put the kind of pressure needed for this. Currently they only offer mailboxes in US and, for what we know, have no plans to support mailboxes in EU.

                          In any case, we have raised this already with our Rackspace manager and will add the feature as soon as they have it available.
