Take control of your MODX sites
SiteDash checks all of your sites 4 times a day for security issues, out-of-date extras, error logs growing out of control, crashed tables, and more. SiteDash notifies you about what you really need to know immediately, and presents everything else in a user (and mobile) friendly dashboard.
But there's more!
- One-click upgrades for all your extras, without having to login to your MODX manager or waiting for the download and the upgrade
- Download and analyze your error logs, to give you the information you need to fix issues before they become a problem
- Full database analysis for crashed tables and collations
SiteDash gives you a clear, central, dashboard listing all your MODX sites. After the initial set-up, SiteDash polls your site several times per day to spot potential issues before your client.
The simple setup relies on a single, free, plugin. Install it in your MODX site once and the plugin will facilitate secure communication with the dashboard until you uninstall it.
Works with any server
Do you host on a shared server, VPS, MODX Cloud, modhost, or a custom cluster? As long as your site is web-accessible and you can install a MODX plugin, you're ready to go.
Welcome to the Dashboard. Get an instance view of all your sites and the most important information.
Use the quick filters at the top to narrow down the list, or use the advanced search to find sites with specific users, packages, and more.
Your site information is refreshed automatically every 6 hours. If SiteDash detects an important change (to MODX, your server configuration, or extras), it's logged in your site activity.
For your error log and available disk space we keep one month of data, to visualise how quickly that changes.
So, SiteDash told you how many sites are out of date and what needs work... Now what? Just press a magical button or two, and let our dedicated fleet of workers do the hard work, that's what!
All you have to do is look at a mesmerising live-updating screen of hard work being done for you.
Or don't, our workers keep working while you're not looking, we checked.
SiteDash currently supports job collections for: refreshing all your sites, upgrading all packages on a specific site, and upgrading a package across all your sites (and more is coming...)
What users say
SiteDash is AMAZING! Previously we had an Excel sheet with a list of every site, a MODX version and notes, basically SiteDash helps automate that process and be much more proactive. I love it!
#SiteDash is starting to show its strength! Got an email warning about a site which had a huge error log - so I was able to fix the problem before it escalates! Great!
During the security updates, I never would have been able to do them fast enough without having the overview I had thanks to SiteDash!
Like all the modmore products, SiteDash is another fabulous product that makes every MODX Developers life easier. We love the great overview of all sites we get with SiteDash.
Alerts to the rescue
Don't let a client call catch you off-guard again! Thanks to the action center and notifications straight to your inbox, you'll know about problems before your client.
Granular notifications preferences are coming soon.
Get the team involved
Share the responsibility with your team. Each team member gets their own login and matching workspace permissions, so you decide who has access to sites, billing, or user management.
Do you work with multiple companies, all managing their own sites in SiteDash? You just need one login, and can switch workspaces easily in the dashboard.
Cut through the noise
What's the largest error log you've seen? 10mb? 350mb? Gigabytes? Did you find out why it got so big? A clear view of the most important messages in your log is just one click away in SiteDash.
SiteDash collects a lot of information. Just for you.
MODX Version Information
See what MODX version your site uses, and whether that it is a safe version or has known vulnerabilities.
Installed MODX Extras
See what extras are installed and from what source, and whether they are up to date or not. Also includes a version history, so you can see what versions were installed before.
MODX Error Log size
The error log in MODX is a great source of information, if you check it. SiteDash shows you its size and creates alerts in your Action Center if it grows over 15MB.
If you know a site is managed by 2 users, then you might want to know when there are 3 users, including how many of them are sudo users, with their username, for a quick check.
While MODX runs on PHP 5.3, you'd be better off on PHP 7. SiteDash will show you what version each site uses with alerts in the future when MODX requires a higher version.
Core Security Check
For security, your core folder should be moved out of the webroot, at at the very least locked down to prevent access. SiteDash verifies that, and sends an alert if it's not locked down.
Setup folder removed
Because you should never leave your setup folder in place, SiteDash checks if it might still be around from a recent update. You also get alerts in your action center.
Server IP + Hostname
When you need to check on the server, it helps to know which one it's on! SiteDash shows the Server IP and reversed hostname, and lets you see all sites on a server.
Disk Space Usage
Had a site go down because the server ran out of disk space? If so, no more, with disk space usage and Action Center alerts at thresholds.
A simple self-reported check indicates if the server thinks it runs on HTTPS or not.
SSL Certificate Check
If your site uses HTTPS, we'll validate the certificate is valid for the domain and provide details on the certificate in the dashboard.
Database Type & Versions
SiteDash will show you if you run the MySQL, sqlsrv or other database types on a site. It also shows the database server/client versions.
Memory & Time Limits
Some applications or sites require a longer memory or time limit, now you can tell easily from SiteDash what your site can use.
Open MODX Manager
SiteDash offers a useful button that takes you directly to your site's manager, even when it was renamed.
Each time we refresh your site, we'll check the nameservers associated with your domain.
A / AAAA DNS Records
SiteDash shows both your IPv4 and IPv6 server addresses, as they are currently reported in the DNS system.
You can add your own notes to each site to remind you about a contact person, SLA, or anything else you want to know.
With every refresh, we make sure your sessions database table is working well. If not, you'll get an alert.
What else can SiteDash do?
Analyze your database tables & collations
With a single click, SiteDash will check the status of all of your database tables. It lets you know which one need to be repaired, and also makes sure that you use the same collation on each table and column. Plus, if SiteDash found crashed tables, it can also repair them for you remotely.
The team management lets you define permissions for each user, and those permissions also dictate what notifications a user gets. Someone without billing access wont receive invoices, and users without access to the sites do not get alerts about your sites.
