Here comes the only Joomla! tool that is a Remote Extensions Manager and Monitor Tool.
From one place monitor healthiness, install/update extensions, and upgrade Joomla! on all your sites.
SP Staging do NOT replace the core Joomla! Extensions Manager, instead it just instruct it what to do and read the result. The result is to be fully compatible since we do not try to reinvent the wheel, just use the already existed Extensions Manager.
The communication is done via 256 key encryption, with password you define, so to make sure the connection is secured even over a non encrypted http connection.
It consists of two components, the Manager and the Server. The manager is installed on the coordinator site, and the server to each site you want to control. See below image as an example.
In summary to install an extension you just:
|Manage all your site's extensions from one place|
|Use your own site as manager and protect your sites sensitive data|
|Update Joomla! extensions|
|Update NoNumber Extensions|
|Update JCE Extensions|
|Install/Uninstall Joomla! extensions|
|Enable/Disable Joomla! extensions|
|Execute remotely any SQL query and PHP script under Joomla! environment|
|Email notifications when new Joomla! version is available|
|Email notifications when any extension new version is available|
|Backup sites with mysqldump and gzip|
|Backup sites with Akeeba|
|Monitor availability of the sites.|
