Migration of Sites From Online Service
If you are using an oinline site manager like Watchful you can import your sites into YourSites very easily (see Easy Migration from Online Site Management Service for more details)
If your YourSites server is accessible online and can be reached by your client sites.
The list of sites is initially empty and you are given some helpful instructions on setting up your first site
Click the 'Download client' button (under the 'Joomla' heading) - this downloads a server specific version of the client plugin
A message pops up to give you advise on how to securely install the plugin on the client site
If this succeeds in creating a connection to the YourSites server then you will see a message like the following
If you see an error message at this stage saying the plugin was unable to establish a secure connection then please read the 'Alternative Setup' instructions below.
View the list of sites on your YourSites management server - the connection between the client sites and the management server is setup and secured automatically.
If your YourSites server is not accessible online e.g. is running on your local PC or not listed in DNS you will need to do the setup slightly differently.
Add your sites manually by clicking 'Add Site' and adding the site details
OR you can import a series of sites on one go using the CSV Import button. You can download a sample CSV file on the CSV import page (from the Sites menu icon on the left of the page).
Next click the 'Download plugin' button highlighted in the following image (or select the site using the checkbox of the left and clicking Joomla->Site Specific YourSites from the top menu) - this downloads a server specific version of the client plugin.

We love every single one of our users, without you YourSites simply couldn't happen! So we would love a review at the Joomla! JED so we can let others know about us too, please take a minute to write a review:
If you feel you have something negative to say, we would implore you to speak to us first, as we really really don't want anyone to be unhappy!
