MainWP Dashboard – The WordPress Manager for Professional Website Maintenance


The MainWP WordPress Manager Dashboard plugin allows you to control unlimited WordPress sites from your own private self-hosted WordPress install.

The MainWP WordPress management system is a free and open source. The system is designed for WordPress professionals who realize that WordPress management for yourself or your clients is more than just plugin and theme updates.

And, just because it is free does not mean it’s not effective. MainWP allows you to control virtually all of your daily WordPress maintenance tasks at absolutely no cost.

The Dashboard plugin allows you to connect and control all the WordPress sites you administer, even those on different hosts and servers.

MainWP is the perfect solution for WordPress consultants, marketers, developers, WordPress shops, or anyone with multiple WordPress sites.

How does MainWP work?

First, Install and Activate this MainWP Dashboard plugin on a WordPress site you will use for controlling all other sites; this is your Dashboard Site. We highly recommend this be a new, clean WordPress installation and not on one of your operating sites. Using a clean site helps to eliminate any unnecessary plugin conflicts or security issues.

Next, Install and Activate the MainWP Child plugin on a WordPress site you want to connect to your MainWP Dashboard. WordPress sites connected to your Dashboard are referred to as Child sites.

Lastly, you securely connect your child site to your MainWP Dashboard. Once connected, your Dashboard can control most aspects of the Child site.

Still not sure how MainWP works? Review these detailed steps on installing your Dashboard and connecting your first Child site.

How is MainWP free? What’s the catch? How will you continue to pay development costs?

We make money by selling Extensions.

Extensions enhance your MainWP Dashboard with additional features. The catalog of MainWP Extensions includes additional features for backups, marketing, SEO, maintenance, security, monitoring, and other tools to help you build a better network.

Everything below and more is included in with MainWP at absolutely no charge, no tricks, no hidden fees, no nickel and diming you for every little feature and absolutely no gotchas!

Some Included MainWP Features:

Easy Management

The MainWP WordPress management system takes the hassle out of managing your themes and plugins. The MainWP Dashboard allows easy review of which of your WordPress sites have themes and plugins that need updating.

Just one click will update all of your plugins and themes across all your sites.

Effortless Upgrades

Do you have a busy schedule and dread all of the work you’ll be putting into upgrading to WordPress’s latest version? Worry no more! With the click of a button from your MainWP WordPress Manager Dashboard, all of your WordPress sites will be upgraded to the latest stable version.

One-Click Access

Do you have too many WordPress sites to remember? Accessing all of your WordPress sites is now a breeze with our intuitive one-click access. With the click of a button, you’re instantly and securely logged in and ready to work in that WordPress site!

Automated Updates

Using the Trusted Plugin and Theme option in your MainWP Dashboard will automatically update all Plugins and Themes you trust with no further interaction. Your MainWP Dashboard will alert you by email with available updates and then auto-update them the next day.

Abandoned Plugin and Theme Alerts

When a plugin or theme hasn’t had an update in a long time, we tend to forget about it, which could lead to security or compatibility issues. Your MainWP Dashboard will alert you of possibly abandoned plugins or themes so that you can look for a more updated plugin or theme.

Multiple Reliable Backup Options

The MainWP Dashboard offers multiple backup options. We have integrated some of the most popular backup plugins and released them as Free Backup Extensions this allows you to use the backup plugins you know and trust directly from your MainWP Dashboard.


Your MainWP Dashboard is hosted on your own WordPress install and not on our private servers. We do not keep records of your actions, sites, passwords, or anything else. Why that’s important!


We have 100% respect for your privacy. The developers do not have access to any of your WordPress sites or information. Why that’s important!

Ignore Updates

Is there a plugin or theme that you do not want to update for compatibility or other issues? Just tell your MainWP Dashboard to ignore it, and it will no longer alert you of the update.

Content Management

With the power of the MainWP WordPress management system, publishing content to sites is now as easy as possible. Pick your site from a list, write content, and publish, without the hassles of logging into each and every site. It’s just as easy to manage links, comments, and spam using our mass publish and delete functions.

Bulk Posting

Posting content to multiple websites can prove difficult with WordPress alone. With the MainWP Dashboard, posting content to multiple blogs couldn’t be more natural. Create the content, select your blogs, and enjoy the time you saved.

Open Source Code

Both the MainWP WordPress Manager Dashboard and Child plugin are fully open source and GPL compliant with no obfuscated code, so you always know what is running on your server. Both plugins are also maintained on GitHub for easy code access.

Discovery Protection

MainWP protects you from your competitors, search engines, or anyone else with prying eyes. No one will ever know you are using the MainWP WordPress management system unless you tell them.

Customize MainWP

Extensions offer custom functions and features so that each user can tailor their WordPress management experience to their needs.

Developer? Code your own Extensions

Building on WordPress’s core principles, the MainWP plugin allows third-party developers to “hook” into it, so anything you want can be developed for your MainWP Dashboard. You can find more information in the Develop MainWP Extensions page. Build around a proven WordPress Management System!

Note: MainWP is not tested on or designed for multisite installs.

However, we have reports that most functions work correctly, but support will be limited. We DO NOT recommend installing the MainWP Dashboard plugin on a multisite install.

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

Using a new WordPress install will help cut down on Plugin Conflicts and other issues caused by trying to run your MainWP Main Dashboard from an active site. Most hosting companies provide free subdomains (“”), 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, 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 set up 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


Do I need any other plugins for MainWP?

Yes, you need to install the MainWP Child Plugin on the sites you want to control with the Dashboard plugin.

Do you have any documentation?

Yes, please review the documentation site.

I just want to start using MainWP, do you have a Quick Start Guide?

Yes, please read the Quick Start – Setting up your MainWP guide on the doc site.

Where do I go for support or to ask for help?

Please post in the MainWP Community

What is the difference between ManageWP and MainWP?

Essentially MainWP and ManageWP provide the same type of service but with different philosophies on WordPress management.

ManageWP is a Service as a Solution (SaaS) property owned by Godaddy. The SaaS system makes ManageWP a type of “Walled Garden” with limited customization options.

MainWP follows the tradition of WordPress and is open source, private, and fully extendable. The fact that MainWP is open source and extendable means you have almost unlimited customization option, this allows you to run your WordPress management business as you see fit.

How do I know my sites are secure using MainWP?

We take security very seriously at MainWP. We welcome any peer review of our 100% open source code to ensure nobody’s MainWP management system is ever compromised or hacked.

We also participate in the HackerOne bug bounty program; this allows ethical hackers to review MainWP code and directly share any vulnerability information with us in return for a monetary reward.

How do I customize MainWP for my needs?

If you want to make some basic changes to the look of your Dashboard, you can use our prebuilt Custom Dashbboard Extension, or if you want to dig in and build Extensions, you can learn all about Extension creation at

I have an idea for MainWP; how do I let you know?

Please follow the steps outlined in the MainWP Feature Requests so you can add your idea to the MainWP Community to be voted on.

I have more questions, do you have any other information?

Sure we have a quick FAQ with a lot more questions and answers here.

Am using it to manage a dozen different sites and their staging versions and so far it's really improved my workflow and reduced the time it takes to keep them all up-to-date.
January 7, 2022
After testing this out for some time I finally bit the bullet and got the full version for life. I have found this to be one of the most consistent tools for managing lots of sites. Highly recommended.
January 5, 2022
Hands-down the best with the most FREE features of absolutely any similar software... bar none! I've literally shopped every other product out there and nothing compares to the free version. Two complaints regarding the PRO version; for freelancers, too many costly plugin subscriptions quickly add up. MainWP really needs to consider this and offer an intermediate tier for the PRO plans. I would pay for it. Secondly, MainWP really needs to consider offering a remote dashboard option. Charge extra, that's fine (again, keep in mind the little guys... maybe 9.99 per month for up to 10 sites?) but I think they are missing out with this. Despite that one complaint, when considering the FREE version, this is easily a 5 star plugin.
