When I started hosting WordPress sites as WP Support HQ I used some of the various management options. However, they all used plugins to do the management. Something always happened to the plugins. Users uninstalled them. They become "disconnected". Outdated.
Eventually I started my working on my own tool to manage the site. I didn't want to use a plugin, although I did experiment with one. I ended up using WP-CLI to manage the site and build an app around that management to track everything and have a nice dashboard.
That became this project, CloudSh
Around 2014 I was doing a lot of consulting work. One client was creating WordPress sites and would contact me looking for help installing plugins or to fix a site that had been hacked with mal-ware.
They had a handful of sites they were working on and it was clear they had two common problems. No one was updating the code and there were no backups to be found!
Early adopter program will validate the market for CommandWP.
[CommandWP] is getting to a point where I'd like to get some early adopters using it. I'm not sure what a good approach might be. Here's what I'm thinking about.
