UpdraftCentral Dashboard

Remote, single-dashboard management for WordPress/theme/plugin updates and UpdraftPlus backups across all your WP sites

The UpdraftCentral multiple site management dashboard gives you centralized and powerful remote control for all your WordPress sites. Remotely manage UpdraftPlus backups, restoration and migration on all your sites. Update themes, plugins and core simply from one location.

UpdraftCentral allows you to manage multiple websites from a single place.

As well as centralized and remote control of all your Updraftplus backups, restorations and migrations, you can also control and update the themes, plugins and cores of every website you manage, or access them with one click.

This plugin is the central dashboard plugin for installing on the site you want your dashboard (the "mothership"). On the sites you want to control, you instead install UpdraftPlus.

UpdraftCentral is the latest release from the makers of UpdraftPlus, WordPress'#1 most installed and trusted backup plugin (active on over 900,000 WordPress sites). Please note, as a brand new plugin we're keen to get your feedback. If you discover a problem, please let us know rather than slamming us with a bad review. You can find support here and make feature suggestions here.

Built with the latest, state-of-the-art technology, UpdraftCentral is crammed full of features that ensure that you enjoy the best possible user experience:

  • Management of all your UpdraftPlus backups from a single place (backup, see/edit settings, see/download/delete backups, initiate restore)
  • Log in to the WP dashboard of any connected site with one click
  • See available updates and update WordPress core, plugins and themes of any connected site.
  • As a single-page/dynamic JavaScript application, it won't annoyingly refresh the page on every action. And because it runs in the front end and on full-screen mode, you won't have the wp-dashboard getting in your way.
  • It sends all communications directly from the browser, rather than through a back-end server, making it much faster and more efficient than traditional management applications.
  • For maximum security, all communications between sites are RSA encrypted and signed, and every connection has a unique key-pair.
  • It can be run by localhost, so as an extra security precaution, you can have the dashboard website (i.e. the one that controls all the others) off the public internet.
  • It's mobile-ready and responsive, built to run on any device from day one.
  • It's also extensible and developer friendly: it uses WordPress hooks widely, and all it's JavaScript is documented with JSDoc.
