So i talked to 2 support employees today, both with the same outcome: "Today it is not possible to run gulp on cloudways."
1. You can't install gulp globally, since cloudways won't allow global npm install.
2. You can't run gulp locally, because this will give you some permission denied.
The weirdest thing of all... Gulp is necessary to use Elixir on Laravel 5.x. The have pre-installed laravel applications, but you can't use the elixir function. Wtf?!4 votes
I am sorry you had to go through that much trouble.
Could you please help me understand how you were trying to use Gulp here that didn’t work?
It is true that at this point in time we don’t support global installation of Gulp. But you should be able to use Gulp easily.
If you have the Gulp dependency defined in the package.json file, then you may run `npm install` to install it. Once installed, if you have a gulpfile.js with Elixir assets defined, you can run gulp by referencing it via `./node_modules/gulp/bin/gulp.js`. It is a somewhat inconvenient, yes, but it should do the job right.
Could you please tell me if you faced issues this way?
At the moment, if you try to set up Git for your deployment but you do not add your SSH key to your GitHub/BitBucket account, when you press the refresh button in order for it to find your branches, it will come back completely blank with no warning. So for new users or users that aren't familiar with Git, they will be left wondering what the issue is...
I propose that you add a warning/alert. For example - "Access denied - make sure you have added your SSH key to your Github account"4 votes

I'd like either bare "metal" spin that allows installing whatever on it or a LAPP stack... We have applications that like that better.5 votes
I know you guys are constantly looking to improve your stack. Could this article be of any help for future stack updates?
As a feature request would it be possible to have the Base Cloudways Stack + App specific optimisation config add-ons? So that if for example I were using Wordpress I could then click a button to optimise the base stack for that particular app without affecting the base stack for other apps.
- Don't see your idea?
