  2. Backup Process Improvement

    Hello Team,

    As of now there's only one full backup / restore option (Server Management > Backups > Take Backup Now)

    Can you please provide some option where the user can take backup as per their requirement, Sometime developer just want to take a backup of the database or hosting files not both all the time.

    If you're providing some option where the user can take backup/restore accordingly as of now if we're taking full backup and restoring the full backup it's super time consuming for the bigger websites while they just want to take database backup.

  4. Add PHP 5.5x to your stack options

    My developer is asking me for a stack option using PHP 5.5x, it would be great this could be offered on ClicknGo platforms especially considering PHP is recommending 5.4 to be phased out: http://php.net/archive/2014.php#id2014-09-18-2

    Default applications are launched with PHP 5.5 From Server Settings & Packages section you can now upgrade to 5.6 or downgrade to 5.4 ( plus upgrade mysql, replace it with mariadb and deploy redis).

  5. Cloudways please document your security practices

    I would like to suggest that Cloudways publishes an article or other document that describes how Cloudways maintains, patches, updates servers and secures them.

    The intent is not to disclose details that puts security at risk but instead demonstrates the value Cloudways is providing in the area of helping its customers maintain a secure server and application environment.

    Information should include frequency of update / patch deployment, frequency of security scans for malware / unauthorized access, firewall ports and services that are open especially those for inbound traffic from the Internet, intrusion protection mechanisms, transparency reports for government information requests…

    This is now completed.

    Under Server Settings & Packages section (Server tab) you can replace mysql with mariadb.

    Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure
    that all the applications in the server will work with the deployed database.

    Enjoy!

  8. Enable Elasticsearch 7.6, Magento 2.4 requires it and MySQL is no longer supported for search

    Please enable Elasticsearch 7.6, because Magento 2.4 requires it and MySQL is no longer supported for search at all. This is a must to have or I have to transfer all Magento installations to another provider.

  10. Upgrade Breeze Plugin To Clear Cloudflare CDN Cache (Cloudflare Enterprise Add-on)

    Submitted after discussion with Cloudways Support

    We'd like the Breeze Plugin feature to "Purge All Cache" to include the Cloudflare CDN if using the Cloudflare Enterprise Add-on, just like it does for the Breeze Cache and Varnish Cache.

    We're submitting an official feature request for this since we'd want to:

    1) Minimise time of having to log in to the Cloudways Dashboard to manually purge the Cloudflare CDN cache.

    2) Ensure that when scheduled Wordpress content like new posts are published, they become automatically available to the public.

    We hope you can make this improvement soon, as we're interested in…

  11. enforce https

    Please add a feature to the Cloudways dashboard to easily force HTTPS. It's not hard to add a rewrite rule to .htaccess but many platforms such as Kinsta and SiteGround have easy switch for this.

  12. Allow cloning of the apps between different servers under the same Click&Go account

    It would be very useful to be able to clone an app to a different existing server under the same Click&Go account. This way it could be easier manage the resources used on different servers.

  15. "Default Application" for server public IP

    When I create a $20 Digital Ocean server it's because I'm looking for power! When I host 2+ applications, I'm unable to control which application is attached to the default IP. What if I want application #5 to be the primary website shown when someone visit's the "default ip"?

  17. EWWW Image Optimizer integration

    It would be great if EWWW Image Optimizer plugin would be a part of default WordPress app installation. There is an issue with installing EWWW to an existing WordPres app.

    I arelady talk to EWWW developers about that.

    We have deployed missing packages so EWWW can fully work on top of our platform. We do not have plans to add it as default but now, anyone wanting to use it should have no problems.

  19. Hosting email addresses

    Every hosting provider I have used allowed me to create as many email addresses as I wanted without an extra cost.

    At the moment, I need to pay for two servers because on your server I need to pay monthly for each email account. I have one server with you (I host my websites on it), and the other with another company (I host on it the email addresses for these sites.

    Could you make my and other life easier by adding an option in the app console for creating and hosting email accounts?

    As other users pointed, we have partnered with Rackspace to offer mailboxes at a very discounted rate (best pricing for very reliable Rackspace Email mailboxes that you will find anywhere).

    More information here:
    https://www.cloudways.com/en/addon/rackspace-email-hosting.php

    We don’t have plans to support deploying mailboxes on our servers as we see email as a completely different service than web hosting, that is what we are trying to be very good at.

  20. Manage rackspace email accounts from within console

    The current option to add mailboxes from Rackspace is extremely limited.
    The only way to order them, is via a small window and is very limited information.
    I have no details at all about current mailboxes, quota usage etc...
    Also, the only way to order mailboxes is by TYPING in the details in the window including the desired password for the mailbox???
    Afterwards, I get a confirmation back from support with the password in the email.
    It's completely unsafe to communicate about passwords this way.

    And lastly, there is no control at all about the mailboxes.
    I can't create extra…
