UpdraftCentral Dashboard


UpdraftCentral is a powerful remote control dashboard for WordPress that allows you to manage your WordPress sites from one central location.

You can centrally manage backups, updates and more, accessing each site quickly and efficiently.

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.

Don’t want to self-host a dashboard? A premium cloud version of UpdraftCentral hosted and maintained by us is also available with many more features – with control of 5 sites available for free.

UpdraftCentral is the latest release from the makers of UpdraftPlus, WordPress’ #1 most installed and trusted backup plugin (active on over a million WordPress sites). As a relatively young 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 or make suggestions here.

Features of this self-install version

Built with state-of-the-art technology, UpdraftCentral is full of features that increase your efficiency and productivity.

With UpdraftCentral, you can…

  • Quickly manage 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 a single click.
  • Update the WordPress core, plus plugins and themes of any connected site.
  • Clearly view updates from all sites and carry them out according to sophisticated filters from a single screen.
  • Clean your database on any site by remotely controlling our WP-Optimize plugin, the #1 most-installed WP database optimization plugin
  • Control policies for updates via control of Easy Updates Manager
  • Manage UpdraftVault storage
  • Easily inspect current system information in order to manage site configurations and settings, and troubleshoot problems.
  • See below for extra features in UpdraftCentral Premium

UpdraftCentral Advantages:

  • No annoying page refreshes and no WP dashboard to get in your way (this is a single-page/dynamic JavaScript application which runs in the front end and on full-screen mode).
  • Fast and efficient: all communications are sent directly from the browser where possible, rather than through a back-end server).
  • Secure: all communications between sites are RSA encrypted and signed, and every connection has a unique key-pair. Can be run by localhost, so you can have the dashboard website (i.e. the one that controls all the others) off the public Internet.
  • Mobile-ready and responsive
  • Extensible and developer friendly: it uses WordPress hooks widely, and all of its JavaScript is documented with JSDoc.

Features of UpdraftPlus Premium Cloud:

UpdraftCentral Premium Cloud is a hosted, cloud version of UpdraftCentral which we maintain so that you don’t have to.

It has many more features:

  • Run Google Analytics to get an instant overview of important KPIs from all sites
  • Easily manage comments on all your sites from one place
  • Manage users, giving different levels of access
  • Create tags to organize websites into different categories
  • Fully supported via a fast, professional ticketed support service and active forum.
  • Manage (activate, deactivate or delete) plugins from one or multiple websites all in one place
  • Install one or more plugins straight from wordpress.org and automatically activate them
  • Manage themes, choose and set your default theme easily and automatically
  • Search, choose and click to install themes to one or multiple websites

Pe canalul nostru YouTube poți vedea cum să adaugi un site nou:


The website being controlled must have all of these:

  • WordPress 3.4 (June 2012) or later. There are no further version PHP/MySQL requirements.
  • UpdraftPlus version 1.12.2 (free version) / 2.12.2 (paid versions) or later installed and active (but, for full functionality and compatibility, you should have the latest release)
  • No active security modules (whether a WordPress plugin, or webserver component) that block traffic based on unusual patterns – encrypted traffic from a remote control plugin is likely to be blocked, as it looks very different to regular website visits from a web browser. We have tested with the most popular WordPress plugins, and these are all not a problem in all the configurations we have tested.

The website that is running the dashboard (i.e. this plugin, UpdraftCentral) must have:

  • WordPress 4.4 (Dec 2015) or later
  • PHP 5.6 or later

The web browser that you visit the UpdraftCentral dashboard must not have not been end-of-lifed by its maker. Specifically, Internet Explorer 9 (or earlier) is not supported. UpdraftCentral is built using modern JavaScript technologies.


We recognise and thank all those whose code and/or libraries are used and/or modified under the terms of their open source licences in UpdraftCentral, at: https://updraftplus.com/acknowledgements/You should install using the standard WordPress procedure:

  1. Search for ‘UpdraftCentral’ via the ‘Plugins’ dashboard page in WordPress.
  2. Click the ‘Install’ button. (Make sure you pick the right one)
  3. Activează modulul în meniul „Module” din WordPress

Then, you must create a front-end page for your site, to contain the dashboard. i.e. Go to the „Pages” screen in your WordPress dashboard, and follow the link for „Add New”. You are recommended to use a template that allows UpdraftCentral as much width as possible – but, note that UpdraftCentral has a „full screen” mode; so, even if your theme is narrow, it’s not a problem.

Upon this front-end page, place this shortcode: [updraft_central] . This will allow logged-in site administrators, who visit that page, to use UpdraftCentral. If you want users with roles to also be able to use UpdraftCentral (note that every user has their own list of sites – giving users access to UpdraftCentral does not give them access to your sites, only to their own list of sites), then please see this FAQ for information on how it is done: https://updraftplus.com/faqs/can-allow-non-admin-users-updraftcentral-dashboard/

Then, to start using UpdraftCentral, simply visit the page, and you can begin adding sites, using this guide.

I did try to install it and followed the instructions but couldn’t get it to work. No response from support forum Great shame, especially as it appears to be by the Updraft people

I’ve used „UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore” plugin with all my web sites since 6 years.I’ve tried severals other backup plugins solutions but „UpdraftPlus Backup/Restore” is the only one I can trust and use with ease!

There seems to be a problem, maybe having to do with self-signed certificates. I understand the value of using a cert authority, but my hosting provider charges serious money for certs (I also understand I need a host that supports Let’s Encrypt!) and the sites I’m running aren’t revenue sources. Sometimes updates, for example, would work. Or, I would set up a site, and it would be OK through the dashboard, but the next day it would just return errors. Sometimes I could see Advanced Tools, sometimes an error message. And this is for sites all running on the same host. More than that, it’s just a guess what the problem is. The logging is completely unhelpful. It gives no information about errors – it doesn’t report errors at all, only successes. Disabling for now… ––- Revisiting this plugin, I installed „Let’s Encrypt” certs on the sites I manage. It works fine on most of them now. The only exception is a blog that’s running on Site5 – there might be a firewall or something in between. But for the rest of them it’s proving to be really helpful. Adding a star. –––– Thank you for updating the UI – it’s MUCH easier to read and work with now. Adding another star…

This solution is brilliant. Sometimes, when you update too many things at once, it runs into a „communication failure” and the updated website hangs in maintainance mode. A manual fix from the dashboard in the hung site is necessary. Nothing broken though.
10 mai 2019
Having over 20 WP sites to manage, this plugin saves me a great deal of time – enabling me to get on with other development work. Without it I’d have to login to each site, determine what needs to be updated etc., do the updates and log out. With UpdraftCentral Dashboard it takes a fraction of the time – brilliant. Prior to using this plugin I used other similar solutions, but none were as fully featured or reliable as this. Keep up the great work.
