Understanding WordPress Dashboard on hPanel

WordPress Dashboard is a convenient tool to see all the important information about your WordPress website. It can be found by opening HostingManage:

And selecting WordPress Dashboard:

NOTE:

Once there you will be presented with these three sections:

  1. Dashboard - the main section of WordPress Dashboard, here you can see all the information about your website

  2. Plugins - here you can manage your plugins

  3. Domain - here you can choose which domain you want to manage

Dashboard

This page provides you with all the required information for your website with the most important configurations. It is also divided into sections, let’s go over them:

Core

Here you can easily:

  • Force HTTPS - makes your website work with secure HTTPS protocol by adding forcing rules to the .htaccess file (does require an installed SSL certificate)

  • Turn on Maintenance mode - very useful when you are making changes to your website and don’t want your visitors to see your website temporarily. An alternative to this is using a maintenance plugin

  • Flush Cache - clears your server cache, extra useful when recent changes are not reflecting on your website

  • WordPress updates - here you can manage your updates settings, they can be: only update minor versions, don’t update, or always update to the latest version

Speed & Security

Here you can install the LiteSpeed cache plugin (highly recommended) as well as enable SSL and Cloudflare. All of these things will greatly improve your website performance and security.

Site Installs

In this section you can easily install another WordPress for your domains or subdomains:

Plugins

On this page, you can see all of your installed plugins and enable or disable them with one click without the need of going to /wp-admin:

Domain

Here you can choose which domain you wish to manage regardless if you have WordPress installed on it or not:

Right side section

  • Edit Website

Here you can find a shortcut straight to /wp-admin, which will not require you to enter the password:

  • Database and Daily backup

Here you can find information on which database is used for the website and quickly open it in phpMyAdmin. You can also enable daily backups here if they are not already included in your hosting plan:

  • PHP version and WordPress version

This section provides you with the ability to change your PHP version and manually update WordPress if needed:
