The WP Toolkit allows you to manage your WordPress installation on your Webhotelli account. However, for more detailed management, such as managing plugins and themes, it's recommended to use the WordPress admin interface. You can usually access the WP admin by going to or using the specified WordPress administrator credentials.

For more detailed documentation, you can refer to the Plesk's own documentation. This article covers only the essential sections.

If the WP Toolkit doesn't find your installation, you can click the Scan button, and your WordPress installation should become visible.

Plugins, Themes and Database

It's recommended to manage these sections directly through the WordPress admin interface for better control. However, you can still get an overview of these sections through the WP Toolkit. By clicking on the "Manage in WordPress" link, the WP Toolkit will redirect you to the WP admin panel if the administrator credentials are correctly provided in the WP Toolkit. You can manage these sections from the Setup tab.

In the Dashboard section, you can get an overview of your WordPress installation, such as whether an outdated PHP version is being used or if an SSL certificate is missing. You can click on the "Issues" tab to view and resolve any detected issues.

It's preferable to use a WordPress backup plugin for backup and restoration purposes as it offers better management and automation. Our servers also take daily backups of the entire account without consuming your Webhotelli disk space.

In the Logs section, you can view the WP Toolkit logs, which show who performed what action and when.

There's a separate article available for the Clone feature, which you can find here.

At the bottom of the section, you can enable the Debug mode, which is useful for troubleshooting. By clicking on the switches, you can configure more specific Debug settings. Once the issue is resolved, remember to disable the Debug mode.

Search engine indexing setting determines whether search engines can find your website. Disabling it can be useful if your website is still in the development stage and you don't want it to be indexed by search engines.

Password protection allows you to restrict access to your website by requiring a username and password. You can enable this by ticking the corresponding setting.

Take over wp-cron.php setting allows you to define custom cron jobs for your WP installation. It's recommended to keep this disabled unless you specifically need to configure cron jobs.

Enable hotlink protection prevents other websites from using your content, such as linking images from your site to their own pages.

In the Autoupdate settings, you can configure the automatic updates for your WordPress installation. Unfortunately, the Smart Update feature is not available on shared hosting environments. If you're interested in this feature, please contact our sales team at [email protected] or by phone at (02) 2516913. You can also explore our Easywp service, which offers this feature.

Maintenance mode allows you to put your website in maintenance mode while still accessing the WP admin panel. Once you have performed the necessary maintenance tasks, remember to disable the Maintenance mode.
