Core Control is a set of plugin modules which can be used to control certain aspects of the WordPress control. Currently, Core Control features modules for managing Filesystem Access, Managing plugin/theme/core updates, Managing HTTP Transports & External HTTP Request logging

Filesystem Module

As of WordPress 2.5, WordPress has included a Filesystem abstraction method which allows The Plugin upgrader, Plugin Installer, Core upgrader, Theme upgrader, and soon to be, Theme Installer, the ability to modify files on the server which WordPress lies via a few methods, Direct Filesystem access (Only available to few), SSH2 (To a select few who have installed a PHP Extension) and 2 FTP methods.

This module allows You to view which Method WordPress is using, and to disable problematic methods. It also provides a small bit of path debug information, which will be expanded upon in future releases.

Upgrades Module

This module is rather simple, and ugly, In short, It allows you to Disable/Enable Core, Plugin, and Theme update checking, It also allows you to force an update to occur instantly, Useful for when you're sure a new version has been released, but WordPress hasnt taken notice of it yet.

HTTP Module

As of WordPress 2.7, WordPress has included a new HTTP API, This simplifies the various splatterings of code used previously, everythings wrapped up together and it means that hopefully, all of WordPress's External HTTP bugs can be located in one easy to find place..

This module Allows you to view which transports are used for what purposes (GET/POST requests), Allows you to test the transport (It requests a file hosted on my web server, and checks the response is correct), And if a module is found to not work as expected, Allows you to disable a transport.

HTTP Logging Module

The purpose of this module is to log all outgoing connections WordPress makes, It allows you to view the resulting data, as well as to view the time it has taken for each of the requests to be made.

Cron Module

This module is designed to allow you to view the WordPress Cron tasks which are currently scheduled to occur.

The Module allows you to run any task by clicking a link, and allows the cancelation of Once-Off scheduled tasks, however it is not recomended unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Future revisions of this Module will most likely allow you to configure custom tasks as well for testing purposes.
