WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I would like to find a solution, where I can administer multiple wordpress sites (50 plus) using one wordpress admin interface or other tool. I would like to manage plugins and content on these sites.

Is there such tool exists?

I assume you are not interested in multisite network, but in managing multiple separate blogs?

By description this sounds like ManageWP (for the record hadn't used it myself).

Hi @gyurisc:

Easy: use WordPress Multisite.

Thanks, I will have a look at it! –  gyurisc Feb 3 '11 at 9:15
Can I use this multisite wordpress with different domains as well? –  gyurisc Feb 3 '11 at 9:16
@gyurisc - You can use it with 1.) subdirectories, 2.) subdomains, or with the Domain Mapping Plugin, you can use with whatever domains you want. –  MikeSchinkel Feb 3 '11 at 11:34

I'm using this, it works well - more limited than ManageWP but it's free: https://wpremote.com Lets you monitor the site and update WP, plugins and themes and create backups to download (used to store the backups on Amazon's S3 servers but that got too expensive). Also click to go to the home page or admin page, it doesn't save your login info so you'll have to log into admins yourself (or if the browser remembers your login).

Haven't tried this, it looks similar - they claim to be able to log you in to the admin with a click. Doesn't appear to update WP and plugins but it checks for malware: https://portal.wpengine.com/

I just tried ManageWP. The set up was easy and free for the first 3 blogs. I like it but I'd rather have a free tool as I have many blogs some focused on hdr photography and others on search engine optimization. Does anyone know of 'free' solutions?

Actually ManageWP is free for up-to 5 websites. After that if you want to manage 50 websites price is $0.5 per website monthly for Standard features = $25 per month

I use ManageWP for up to 15 sites at the moment and I find it very useful.

Some of the messages are a bit basic and not very informative (eg "Working ....") but it has reduced the amount of time needed to administer a number of sites.

I have also used it to move and clone sites, again it is not a perfect tool but I have used it a number of times successfully (sometimes with a bit of "fixing" needed).

I am paying for it but also sell site management as a service, which covers the costs. I consider it well worth the cost for the time saved, the convenience and the ease of moving sites.

I have resisted adding an affiliate link :-)
