Getting Started with MainWP
For the proper use of the MainWP WordPress management system, it is required to Install & Activate the MainWP Dashboard plugin on a WordPress site (called Dashboard Site) that is going to be used for controlling all other WordPress websites.
After that, you need to Install & Activate the MainWP Child plugin on all your WordPress sites (called Child Sites) that you want to control directly from your Dashboard Site. This acts as a bridge to communicate with the Dashboard site.
Install MainWP Dashboard
1. Go to the WP > Plugins page on your WordPress site that is dedicated to running your MainWP Dashboard
2. Click Add New, and search for “MainWP Dashboard”, install and activate the plugin
4. Click Choose File button, select the mainwp.zip file and click the Install Now button
5. Once the plugin is uploaded, click the Activate button to activate it
After the first activation, MainWP Quick Setup Wizard will be initiated, guiding you through the initial setup process.
