What are my Managed WordPress CP Tools?

Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase  »  Viewing Article

The Managed WordPress Tools are an extra section on your hosting control panel which will allow you to get the most out of your WordPress site.


You can use these tools to manage your WordPress site in a few different ways as well as to check if your WordPress install is up to date.

WordPress Admin - This option will take you to your WordPress admin login page.

Reinstall WordPress - Here you can make a new clean install of WordPress if you have any issues. Please note this is a destructive process and will overwrite any files already on your package.

Plugins - You can view and manage any plugins you have installed on your site from this page without having to log into your admin site.


Themes - From here you can easily manage/update/remove or activate any themes currently on your package.

Users - Easily create and manage user accounts here. You can set up roles for each user too from subscriber right through to Administrator.

Settings - From here you can update your site and home URL without needing to access the database. You can also change your site title and tagline from here.

Staging - This is an area in which you can clone your site to a staging address while developing the site or making critical changes without affecting your live site.

When accessing this for the first time you will be asked to create a staging site. You simply need to click the button to do this and the system will take care of the rest. Once done you can view the staging site to ensure the clone has been made correctly. To edit this cloning site you need to access the site files which will be located in a folder called ‘staging_html’.

Once done you can click to clone the staging site back to live for a seamless way to update your site with minimal disruption.


Checksum Report - This scan checks if your core files match what exists in the official WordPress core repository. If these do not match it’s likely that either you have changed this yourself or your site may be infected with Malware.
