  1. Offer Application Migration to make PHP 7 Upgrade Easier

    While I'm glad to finally have the ability to upgrade to PHP 7, it's very frustrating and time-consuming to have to clone every application in order to make that happen.

    That means new IP addresses, new FTP user accounts, new IP Whitelisting setup, SSL certificate setup, reconfiguring the SMTP mail add-on...and of course, DNS propagation time. What a hassle!!

    Please develop an auto-migration tool to move an application (or server) to a new server, rather than clone it, keeping the abovementioned settings intact.

    This would also help for Digital Ocean server downgrades -- rather than cloning to a new (smaller)…

  2. Require SSH keys for login / SFTP

    Once SSH keys have been set up on a server, password login should be disabled, or at least have an option to disable it.

  3. Add www.sparkpost.com as standard email add-on

    Would be great to have sparkpost as a standard email addon like mandrill and the ohter ones that are allready supported. They have a great free plan which enables up to 100 000 free emails which would benefit a lot of small scale users

  5. Add BitNinja.io security for both Server and Apps

    Would be great having this installed as an option. Would protect server and all the Apps installed so we don't necessary have to go for Sucuri for each single App when clients cannot afford.

  7. Replace SugarCRM with SuiteCRM as Click & Go application

    SugarCRM is not maintained any more as an OpenSource project so it is not of a big value to have it in the list. SuiteCRM is SugarCRM fork that is under active development now with many extra features and it is probably the only reasonable choice to use it as a replacement for SugarCRM.

  8. Hide server details from Team Members with limited application access

    When I give limited access to team members the first console screen after they login it shows the server details - server type, disk, etc.

    I want to give application access to my clients but I don't want them seeing the level of server I have them on. It would be better to either not show the server details or go straight into the application dashboard.

  9. add SMS option for two factor authentication

    Two factor authentication is important but at the moment I don't really feel I have this option.

    Please add SMS as an option for two factor authentication.

    I prefer SMS as a two factor authentication method.

    I don't really want to use google authentication anymore as I just had the IOS app lose all the settings. Plus I find it more cumbersome than SMS.

    Thanks!

  10. PTR records / Reverse DNS

    DNS is important, reverse DNS is also important within production web farms. Currently it is not possible to set the PTR record for IPs on the Digital Ocean (+other?) platforms. PTR record lookups return something along the lines of: 12345-67890.cloudwaysapps.com.

    Please add the ability for clients to modify this zone.

  11. WooCommerce migrate tool, failed to parse wp-config correct

    After I used the migration tool to move my WooCommerce to CloudWays/Digital ocean on trial.
    My wp-config.php got malformed after this
    I got this
    define('WPTEMPDIR', 'ABSPATHwp-content/uploads/');
    And it should be this
    define('WPTEMPDIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/uploads/');
    I corrected this and now I can update my plugins, as I got an error message that the download/streaming folder does not exist or do not has the right permission.
    I corrected this manually and this works now.

  12. to fix SMTP addon

    I just found out an error.

    I create a Vultr server. I explored all the addons and forgot to disable the SMTP addon when I enabled it. I had no intention to use it just to see what addons Cloudways have. Later that week when I was installing new wordpress I found out that my postfix email doesnt work anymore. After I figured it out with your cloudways support I disabled it. However the email still didn't work. I have tried to reset a dummy username to get a new password to check and also create a new username to…

  14. Billing in GBP

    It would be useful to be able to select GBP as a currency to pay my bill. I'm sure other Cloudways customers would like the option to pay in their local currency also.

  16. Back Database inside MySQL Manager

    Hi cloudways team

    Handling database within mySQL manager is really frustrating. If you add a option to clone and backup database inside your mySQL manager, is really handy for everyone.

  17. let users disable PEAR's SSL/TLS forced check in PHP 5.6 to make it compatible with services like Mandrill again

    let users disable PEAR's SSL/TLS forced check in PHP 5.6 to make it compatible with services like Mandrill again.

    5.6 PEAR defaults currently cause a hell of a lot of problems, see for example

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25888550/cant-send-email-with-php-pear-5-6

    https://www.authsmtp.com/php-pear-mail/

    and effectively force us to downgrade to 5.5

  18. Add the ability to lock down file write access per application (so one a compromised application cannot affect other)

    Applications on the same server currently have write access to each others' files by default, which is an unnecessary security risk. For example, if you have multiple Wordpress applications on the same server and one gets compromised, the hacker could also compromise any other applications on the same server. If possible, it would be worthwhile to at least have the option to lock down file write access on a per application basis. I believe you already have apache running under separate users for each application, so this might be as simple as disabling the www-data group permissions.

  19. Fix Issues With Primary Domain Changes

    You might consider this a bug, but after having been bit by it multiple times, I figured it would be best to post it here.

    When you have multiple apps on a server and you re-arrange the primary domains on them, changing which app a specific app uses, the server will not properly follow your new primary domain settings and will instead load your default app. Here is how you reproduce the issue:

    1. Have an app on the server with a domain like dev.mysite.com
    2. Have a second app (your production app) on the server with a domain like mysite.com.
    3. You…
