If you use one of the online site management services such as Watchful, myJoomla or Perfect Dashboard, then its easy to set up the sites you manage in YourSites.
Note that as you try out YourSites you can continue to use your existing Online Site Management Service too - they should not interfere with each other. You should not, of course, attempt to perform the same upgrades at the same time on both though!
Simply follow these steps:
If your chosen YourSites server is accessible online and can be found via DNS the you can follow the easiest migration path.
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 migration slightly differently. If your YourSites server is accessible online the method described abost is a lot easier and quicker.
Click the 'options' button and add your Watchful.li API key to the YourSites configuration and save the configuration.
The client package you download via the 'Download Client' button is specific to your YourSites server so it should only be installed on sites you wish to connect to your YourSites server.
The act of installing the downloaded client package will trigger a connection to the YourSites server to establish the secure linkage. This will not work if your 'YourSites' server is not accessible from your client sites and this is why the site specific package must be installed on each site in turn in the alternative migration path.
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!
