MyPressable Control Panel Basics

Category: Getting Started | Last modified: January 11, 2022

Before jumping into building your first site, this article will help you become a little more familiar with the Pressable control panel and its features.

Account Control Panel

The first view that you come across when logging into your account is the site listing page. This will display all sites currently installed on your account, along with that site’s IP addresses, the number of domains and collaborators, as well as whether it’s a staging site or not. You can view more about each site by clicking on the settings icon.

 

Add a new site


You can add a new site by clicking on the plus sign button in the upper right-hand corner.

Follow the prompts from there to create your new Pressable site. Once you do, your site will begin deploying and an email notification will be sent when it has been completed. This email will contain information on getting logged into your newly created site.


 

Site Control Panel


By selecting an existing site, you will be taken to the control panel for that specific installation. The controls and information for the site are split up into multiple tabs:


Overview

The overview tab gives you general information about the site. From here you can change the PHP version, the WordPress version, and the site display name. You can also reset the password for your wp-admin user. And you can convert the site between “staging” and “live”.


DNS & Domains

From this tab you can obtain the necessary DNS information to point your domain name to Pressable. Once it has been pointed, it can be added to the site in the “Domains” section.


Stats

The stats give you an overview of the site’s unique visits and disk space usage.


Performance

From the performance tab you can enable/disable the CDN, purge and flush the CDN and object caches, and manage your Jetpack subscription.


Users

The Users section will allow you to manage the site’s collaborators and SFTP access.


Backups

Pressable takes automatic backups of your site. The file system is backed up once-daily at 00:00 UTC. The database is backed up hourly. You can access and download these backups from the “Backups” tab.
