I want to express my dissatisfaction here.
Everyone was expecting a new version with fixes and improvements for BACKUP. However, this was only for those who have paid Cyberpanel plans, is this bad? Of course not, after all the work developing, maintaining and optimizing the panel and therefore it is more than fair for the developers to have a means to monetize this in the best way.
However, I found it a huge “disregard” to the community, because after all, who builds the reputation of the panel are exactly the users of the opensource community.
So what would it cost to fix the problems of FTP/SFTP backups of the opensource version? This is the least that should be done, because each and every panel has this feature as standard and totally free. But as seen in several posts here, this feature is not working and I even challenge someone to post the opposite here, using features only from the dashboard itself (no gimmicks - because that’s possible). But as a “feature” of the built-in dashboard, this isn’t working for anyone.
I myself have tested on several installations and on all supported operating systems and this feature of setting FTP/SFTP location to “Default Backup” does not work, and this is paramount to keep the data safe off the server.
I am sure that many who start with Cyberpanel, aaPanel, Webuzo, CloudPanel or any other, it is certainly because they are still testing options and launches of services or products online and therefore logically everyone will opt for the opensource version to reduce costs as much as possible, because as we know hosting costs themselves are getting more and more expensive.
The point of observation here is not the fact that they have updated, optimized and improved only the paid version of Cyberpanel, this is more than fair and I believe that if someone starts using this in production 100% with some billing for sure that person will upgrade to the paid version.
But I think it’s a hell of a mess and a lack of consideration to leave common errors in the free version and unsolved.
Anyone else with FTP/SFP connection issues leaves a comment here below so that DEVs have an attention and give the value to those who together with them built the reputation of Cyberpanel.
