MyPressable Control Panel Basics
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:
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”.
Domains & DNS
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. If you are using our nameservers for your domain, you will also be able to manage your DNS records from this area.
From the performance tab you can enable/disable the CDN, purge and flush the CDN and object caches, manage your Jetpack subscription, and view Performance Reports for the site. You can also view information regarding your site’s visits and storage usage.
The Users section will allow you to manage the site’s collaborators and FTP access through Pressable SFTP tools.
Backups & Restores
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. You can also restore your site to any of these backup points.
You can read more about this in our Git integration guide.
