MainWP Dashboard

Manage WP sites from one central location! Much more than just updates, get nearly complete control of all your sites from your self-hosted Dashboard.

Note: MainWP is not tested on or designed for multisite installs, we have reports that most functions work correctly but support will be limited. We DO NOT recommend installing the MainWP Dashboard plugin on a Multi-site install.

  1. We HIGHLY recommend a NEW WordPress install for your MainWP Dashboard.

Using a new WordPress install will help to cut down on Plugin Conflicts and other issues that can be caused by trying to run your MainWP Main Dashboard from an active site. Most hosting companies provide free subdomains ("demo.yourdomain.com") and we recommend creating one if you do not have a specific dedicated domain to run your MainWP Dashboard. If you are not sure how to set up a subdomain here is a quick step by step with cPanel, Plesk or Direct Admin. If you are not sure what you have, contact your hosting companies support.

You can even install your MainWP Dashboard on a WordPress site located on your local computer using DesktopServer, WAMP or any other setup that allows you to run WordPress locally.

  1. Once you have setup the separate WordPress install you can install the MainWP Dashboard plugin following your normal installation procedure either the Automatic process by searching MainWP or by uploading the MainWP plugin to the '/wp-content/plugins/' directory.

  2. Once installed then Activate the Plugin through the Plugins Menu in WordPress

  3. Add your first child site to the MainWP Dashboard - Documentation

  4. Set your MainWP Settings - Documentation
