@khadanja from your forum account, I was able to trace it down and for some reason our state showed 2 installed apps. This sometimes happens, since we don't closely track our users.
I have reset the state now, so can you try again?
@cyberfreakde no, the server and apps won't stop and will continue to run forever. Additionally, no features are disabled as such. The main change is that you cannot install more apps and existing apps won't get updates. I put these notes in https://docs.cloudron.io/billing/#canceling-subscription . Also, support is limited if you let the subscription lapse too much (hard to support if software is outdated by many releases).
@robi is right. @ryan can you send us an email to support@ to move your plan to a free plan. Currently, we have to do this manually i.e move something from a paid plan (even if cancelled) -> free plan.
@gabrielcossette If you can't afford Cloudron, you probably have bigger problems.
Maybe I didn't word it correctly, but that's not what I meant. I wanted to express that Cloudron terms and pricing could change in the future, in a way that could not be appropriate anymore for some users. And as the platform is not open source, you have no choice than migrating to a different platform.
It's all about risk management.
Personally, I find it too risky to host all my digital infrastructure on a platform that doesn't provide a good exit strategy.
[...] open-source comes with a lot of admin overhead for discussion and rights-management.
As long as you manage expectations, you can do open source and not burn you out.
You could state: "Hey, feel free to use the code, ask questions and make contributions, but as our team has limited resources (for now), we can't make any promise regarding support. Also, if you are interested in reliable support, check out our commercial offer. 😉"
If Cloudron Dev were relicensing GPL code to MIT, it would be an issue indeed, but that's not the case.
FYI, not all Cloudron code is open source (FOSS).
I'm not happy about it, but it's a comprise I can take, like so many others I have already in my life. 😉
Working with non-profits, I wish Cloudron could be free for all of them, but I understand cloudron dev should be paid for their work. Maintaining up to date, developing features and adding apps for the platform is a lot of work and is difficult to do when you don't have money to live a decent life.
@kimmy I hope you can find a solution that works for you.
