Why people use Perfect Dashboard? 80% of websites are susceptible to hacking as their software is not updated or upgraded regularly plus they do not perform regular backups. Perfect Dashboard is a solution to this problem. It’s the one place you will ever need to manage all websites efficiently. It’s designed to work with WordPress and Joomla, but you can use it with every website. It effectively scratches website's security off your list. To protect brand reputation Hackers are getting clever. Getting access to a vulnerable website is just a first step for them. Then, they use this website to infect unprotected computers of people who visit it. Imagine the consequences when it’s revealed that it was your website that had spread malware to others. Regular website updates, upgrades and backups are the easiest way to shield yourself from that risk. Make your website's security your top priority! Every website should be updated Both WordPress and Joomla are great tools to build beautiful, feature-rich websites in an efficient way. But that’s not their main advantage. The best part is that because they are so popular, their security is tested on a daily basis. And every month there is a security fix release. That is why Joomla and WordPress are considered much safer than any custom CMS solution. However, this is true only if the website software is regularly updated / upgraded and the backups are regularly performed. Otherwise, the website becomes vulnerable to hacking and malware. Updating is boring Everybody knows it. First, you need to backup and restore it to check if it’s ok. Then you need to install updates one by one. After that, you need to check if nothing got broken during the update / upgrade and the website is working normally. And finally you have to fix possible display errors. And it gets more complicated if you do not want to perform an update or an upgrade on a live website. Top security can be really tedious. To save 50% time spent on updates But updating doesn’t have to be this way. Imagine a tool that does the backup and automatically restores it remotely. Then it installs all the updates and upgrades and tests the website for you, pointing out potential errors you should fix. All with just one click. And this tool has a name. It’s Perfect Dashboard. To manage more websites & increase income With Perfect Dashboard, every web developer can become a professional website maintenance provider and offer management services and top security at compelling prices. This turns one-time clients into a recurring source of income. Branded reports, that can be generated from Perfect Dashboard, help to show what actions has been undertaken and make a great attachment to a monthly invoice. To make the Internet a safer place But it’s not only about the money. It’s about making the Internet a safer place. It’s about how decision makers see Joomla and WordPress. Right now, their reputation is tarnished as, according to recent research, every minute some outdated WordPress/Joomla website is being hacked and malware is being installed on them. Typically they do not have any backup or if they do have one it is outdated. We want to change this and prove that a regularly updated Joomla or WordPress is far more secure than most custom CMS. But we need your help. Together we can accomplish this goal and prove that a CMS security we are working with is rock solid. How to update Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 with Perfect Dashboard Officially, Perfect Dashboard supports Joomla 3.x only. However, here’s a trick how to use Perfect Dashboard test engine with older Joomla versions. 1. Do the backup using third party plugin/tool (Akeeba Backup recommended) 2. Add your website as “other” on Perfect Dashboard 3. Generate test 4. Update / upgrade your website manually from admin panel 5. Go back again to Perfect Dashboard and run test 6. Review the test results and fix the bugs, if needed And it's all done! For now, using Perfect Dashboard with older Joomla versions, lets you to save time while testing. However, we plan to support Joomla 1.5 and 2.5 (including backups, updates and upgrades) in the nearest future.
