So the hack to not being able to edit .bashrc is to create a .bash_aliases and put your initialization code there.
It would be more idiomatic though if a separate configuration file was included, since .bash_aliases isn't the appropriate place to modify environment variables.
Ditto. I'd like to export PS1 to make the prompt tell me which server I'm on.

You can already restore a single application:
Let us know if this is what you meant.
I'll chime in and say that point-in-time restore is not sufficient here.
Restoring to a point in time is useful if you just want to revert a change. However, if you want to test the Cloudways backup system (which everyone should be doing--trusting that backups just "work" without doing test restores from time-to-time is almost the same as having no backups at all), this doesn't help.
Also, if you want to test a potential rollback+fix scenario on a test server before deploying that to production, point-in-time restores don't help.
If you were able to access restore points on cloned applications, that would help solve some of these problems. Then you could clone the application, roll back to a previous restore point on the clone, test different fixes, and then when everything is working, port those changes over to production.
Alternatively, the ability to download backups and then restore from a local backup through the UI would help achieve a similar aim.
Agreed. The lack of restore options and documentation on Cloudways is disappointing. Backup is only half of the equation. So far I've been disappointed with the restore options for Cloudways, which include:
- No option to restore from local backups
- No option to restore to another server
- If you clone an application, no option to use the backups from the original application
Essentially, it makes it extremely difficult to do any sort of testing.
