How much time do you spend to perform your WordPress blogs/sites maintenance?

Are you sure the new plug-ins you are going to install will not break your WordPress installation?

Are all your plug-ins and your template ready for WordPress 4.0?

When using WordPress to professionally produce sites for your customers, doing the proper maintenance can really take some time.

I have heard of developers (and companies!) that do not care to keep their customer’s sites updated at all. Once the site is released the job is considered closed and – unfortunately for the customer – totally forgotten!

Well, with all the problems you may face when you do not care enough about security, it is much better to constantly keep things under control as much as possible.

The main problems in keeping everything updated are the huge amount of time you need to take from your already busy schedule and the risk to get your WordPress installation broken by a plug-in upgrade.

Now you can enroll your ally and let him help you to save quite a good amount of time, just install myEASYwebally!

myEASYwebally is made up of two different agents: the plug-in and its dedicated server.

The plug-in takes care of collecting the information you need to know about your WordPress installations at regular intervals of time. Such information is saved on your uploads folder as a PHP page. This page is created in such a way that it shows the included information ONLY when it is called from the dedicated server.
Trying to execute the page from any other location, like your site or another system, will show this result.

The dedicated server takes care to inquire the pages created by myEASYwebally at regular intervals and keeps a list of all the reported plug-ins, their related information as well as some useful information about your WordPress installation.

Periodically, the dedicated server reads the information from its database to prepare and email a detailed report.

To group the information from several sites to the same user, the mechanism uses an API key, available for free by registering at the dedicated server.

Its very easy:

  1. Open your free account and take note of your Public API Key.
  2. Download myEASYwebally;
  3. Install myEASYwebally on your WordPress blog/site;
  4. Login in your dashboard and enter your own API key in the settings page.
  5. Click on the activate button: that’s it!
  6. Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 for each blog/site your administer.

Based on your preferences, you will start getting a daily, weekly or monthly email report. You may also decide not to receive emails and checking the reports on the dedicated server by yourself.

Each report includes vital information about all the plug-ins installed on all your blogs/sites. Moreover it lists all the links related to each plug-in as well as some clues about what you should do for each of them.

If you care for your customers even after they have paid you, as you may be aware that they can bring more money in when they are happy with your services, then you should definitely consider to get your loyal ally.

All you need to do is to install the myEASYwebally plug-in right now!

All the images and javascript code is now loaded from the same server where the plugin is installed.
Last year I tought it might be useful to have the myeasy common images and code loaded from a CDN to avoid having to update all the plugins in the series each time an image changes and to load pages faster; so I moved all the common items to a CDN.
Today I received a kind email from wordpress.org letting me know that "there a potential malicious intent issue here as you {me} could change the files to embed malicious code and nobody would be the wiser" and asking me to change the code.
I promptly reacted to show everyone that I am 101% in bona fide and here is a new version.
