SP Staging ComponentPlugin

SP Staging is a tool with the ability to manage remotely all Joomla! extensions from a central coordinator site on all your Joomla! sites. Imagine using the core Joomla! Extensions Manager with all its functionality (install, find updates, update, upgrade Joomla! etc), but instead you can control all your sites from one place. So in summary with SP Staging you can:

- Manage extensions remotely from a single place,
- Use your own site as a coordinator. That way you do not share your sensitive sites data with us, or anyone else!!!
- Update simultaneously your extensions to many sites,
- Install simultaneously zip package files to many sites,
- Remote backup.
- Monitor your sites, and services healthiness.

After my favorite monitoring solution does not support J!3 I was looking for another extension to manage my J! websites. This extension is simple to install and makes it very easy to monitor updates on my different websites. Sometimes the extension is a little bit tricky, but the developer is very helpful in these cases.

I purchased this extension, because you loose overview very soon, even if you have only a small amount of websites to administer. What extension is installed in which version and where? SP Staging solves this problem. You have one Manager site and multiple satellite sites (or Clients, called servers). You install the manager module of SP Staging on your manager site and the server module(s) on any site you want to monitor.
Though I had a little trouble in setting up the whole system (forgive me, the documentation could be more clearly) - there is noch reason for not giving a five star rating to it. Support is very helpful an fast and solved all issues and questions short term. Glad to have purchased it.

Im am using the new version of Sp-Staging for over 40 sites (Joomla 2.5 and 3.2) and is saves me a lot of time. Easy install on all sites. Developer helped me quick with some minor issues.
This extension is well worth the money and recommended when you want easy maintenance of your Joomla websites.

I've used this extension for several months for 30 sites - and with multiple correspondence to the developer.

Pros: Sits on your own server so you aint giving 3rd parties access to you sites (unlike Watchful). Has some powerful features.

Cons: Spend just as much time getting this to work and manually updating the client as you would just manually updating.

Good in theory - but due to bugs - needs to be finished.

As a commercial product we need to give honest reviews - else we are wasting everyone's time - and degrading the review points system.

Hope these guys come through - as Watchful has similar issues too.
Owner's reply

Because we take seriously users comments, we followed your advice and fully restructured the component.

Many of the bugs were caused by functionality that people do not use. Therefore we removed the problematic functionality and we made it much simpler to use.

Now it is as simple as core Joomla! extensions manager with the big difference that it can install/update extensions on many sites at once!

Thanks for your review that initiated the process of fixing things.

This is a good idea which deserves to be upgraded. This could be a good tool for multi sites management. However, I regret my money. This is a beta version, many bugs. It doesn't worth buying it now as developer seems to leave this project starving.

There are a few obvious things on this app which should be fixed (can't email using SMTP and can't test for missing slash at end of URLs) but otherwise this is an outstanding component.

This will save me hours and is well worth the investment of time to get working.

First class support who were more than happy to help get it working

With Joomla 2.5, a number of updating extensions have been built, including and Admincredible which have gotten lot of press. SP Staging is far superior to all others. SP Staging allows you to install and update any, and I repeat, any extension, remotely on an unlimited number of sites. All other extensions only allow you to update extensions that utilize the Joomla update function. SP Staging also allows you to update extensions with the Joomla update function.

This extension is a huge time saver for those managing many sites with many extensions. The developer is very responsive to bug reports and feature suggestions. The one-time purchase price for an unlimited number of sites is also great.

Can't believe I finally found what I had been looking for. An easy way to update multiple sites with MY files instead of using built in Joomla updater, which many extentions don't support anyway. A HUGE timesaver when you have 50 sites.

It took me a little while to get my head around this because I needed to make a few changes to my server's configuration (by the way, thanks for the excellent support!).

Now I have all of my staging server sites hooked up to one control panel and can update the extensions all at once. Truly awesome.

I've been using Joomla since 2006 and at work I'm the Administrator of over 70 portals!

SP Staging is a FANTASTIC tool! I can check all my sites for updates with just one click! And if there is a new version of Joomla! or an extension, then I can update every portal using this extension! Wow! Really WOW!

This saves me so much work! I don't have to login to each portal and update it! I can do it from SP Staging!

And when I want to install a new extension on every portal ( website), I just upload the extension to SP Staging and deploy it to every website! Dead easy!

I can't understand why so few people are giving this extension feedback.

The guys at also created the SP Upgrade (Joomla migration tool) and that's how I discovered SP Staging.

Thanks for a GREAT extension! Continue the great development! :-)

We have been waiting for a system like this for 2.5 for a while now. Being able to test and deploy extensions and upgrades is invaluable for Joomla development and hosting companies like us.

Now, if we could only get this product to instruct Joomla 2.5 to self upgrade, we would have no reason to remotely login and upgrade Joomla core installs manually...
