What can I do with the WordPress Manager?

The WordPress Manager allows you to manage various key functions for your website:

  • WordPress core updates
  • Set up automatic updates for core, plugins and themes
  • Activate/deactivate search engine visibility
  • Change website URL
  • Activate/deactivate WordPress Cron
  • Change site name
  • Activate/deactivate WordPress debug mode
  • Change WordPress password
  • Various database settings

All these functions are available in one central location and offer more convenience compared to direct editing via the WordPress admin area or cPanel. However, please note some limitations.

Although you can activate or deactivate automatic updates for plugins, WordPress itself offers the option of deciding which plugins receive automatic updates. This gives you more control over your plugin management.

The Softaculous WordPress Manager is ideal for extensive changes, but does not offer the same level of control as logging directly into the WordPress backend.

If for some reason you do not have access to the administrator account, this method offers more functionality than using cPanel.
