Hello,

I would like to restart a request, which was posted by another user in "Akeeba Admin Tools for WordPress" in 2018:

I use MainWP to manage a few Wordpress sites.
Are there any plans to provide a MainWP extensions to allow Akeeba Backup to backup multiple sites from 1 location?

Thanks in advance for any info about it.

We had written an integration but the client told us that there was a new version of MainWP where our integration wouldn't work. We asked for a copy of the new version and never received it. Same thing happened with another two clients.

At this point I am not willing to waste any more of our development time trying to support MainWP. The whole process of writing a plugin, verifying it with MainWP, approving it with the WordPress Directory and having to do free support on the Directory –only to repeat the exercise every few months with a new MainWP version– sounds awfully like a whole lot of trouble for solving a non-existent problem.

There are two alternatives you could use.

If you just want to take / download backups remotely just use Akeeba Remote CLI.

If you want a web interface to manage your sites and your backups you can use mySite.guru or Watchful.net. They work perfectly with Akeeba Backup Professional for WordPress.

Dear Nicholas,

thank you very much for your quick and detailed reply.

I totally agree with you.
In this case it makes no sense to waste precious time on further development.

So, I will have a look at your recommendations and give them a try!

Once again, thank you!
