Thanks Paul. Would a docker image suit the same needs?. Assume so. We are leaning towards it for the exact same problem you mention.
Would love a docker image!
Under the hood it seems that Cloudways uses duplicity for its backups. I would suggest Cloudways upgrade to version 0.7+ of duplicity then include a control panel option for users to select frequency and location of backups. For me the major problem with the backups is we need to manually download a backup file (of the entire site) or the files are hosted on Cloudways S3 infrastructure - so if something went wrong with Cloudways the backups are also inaccessible.
SSL will be soon available for MySQL/Database web manager.
Yes, a let's encrypt cert for the server IP address would be great, as its also used on the "shell in a box" terminal.
