Hello, about the idea of community abandonment, I may have been too quick to say this, but there are details that make us believe that it is, at times.
Before answering the main subject, I want to make it clear that your work is incredible and even with CyberPanel containing common bugs I still prefer it, because I can fix most common problems myself, but others cannot. In addition, I also want to make it clear that it is very fair to have Pro options and ways to monetize, after all, it takes a lot of work to maintain this.
About the common bugs reported, the main ones I see here are related to the SSL Bug renewing every 7 days and the problem of creating the FTP/SFTP destination for sending backups outside the server. Other than these I can’t experience any other bugs, the panel works perfectly.
These 2 Bugs mentioned above are the only problems that I reported and that I often see here, hence the idea that it would have been abandoned, because it seems to be simple Bugs and features that should be standard and active for the community, but were or are present so far (SSL I don’t know, but the “FTP destination” problem in “Common Backup” still persists).
And another point, which is exactly why there is confusion here, you ask to report a bug on github, but not everyone knows how to do this. Another detail is that when problems are sent here, some people respond to solve them using non-standard CyberPanel options and this is what makes the community feel bad. I believe that the vast majority, when they choose to use a panel, they don’t know or don’t want to have to go to the terminal and screw everything up.
I know there are many devs here or advanced users who can deal with problems like this easily, but the vast majority are ordinary users and they have no idea how to solve it, and worse, they follow superficial tips here and in the end it ends up making the problem worse.
For OpenSource Free version:
I believe that leaving the basic things of the Web server working and security dependencies and basic backups (more functional) and systems compatibility and standard and updated dependency versions would be enough for everyone who starts with Free or those who are even learning or doing tests.
About Pro options:
I definitely support this and I believe that everyone else who uses it professionally does too, it’s more than fair, or rather, it’s absolutely necessary to monetize, after all if a person wants more advanced and professional features, they should definitely pay for it. Mainly because this encourages better development, optimizations and the panel’s own maintenance.
So that ordinary people who are not devs (don’t know how to report on GitHub) can report real BUGS with the necessary attention, I believe there could be an area here where reports could be made and that can be seen by you. This would be very helpful.
That’s all, thank you for your attention.
