We use browser cookies for a number of reasons, such as keeping the YourSites website reliable and secure, personalising content, and to analyse how our site is used.

Here you can download a copy of YourSites if you have a valid subscription.

We always recommend that you make sure your client sites are backed up before relying on YourSites - just as you should when applying upgrades using Joomla directly on your client sites.  Yoursites provides an interface to Akeeba Backup on your client sites so you can initiate the creation of these backups from your YourSites server.

Release 1.6.1 - 20 March 2019

Bug Fixes

  • Add workaround for JCH Optimize installation - the script assumed that the installation was done from within com_installer
  • Correct JS bug which made extension installations return a red error bar even if they succeeded
  • WordPress sites were showing Joomla icon in list view
  • New upgrade site interval setting was not implemented for extension upgrades
  • Extension update check was showing in green even if there was updates available

Release 1.6.0 - 19 March 2019

New Features

  • Add site specific backup times - you can set a schedule of backups, monthly, weekly or daily selecting specific dates/days and time(s)
  • Add suggested cronjob interval information on the config page.
  • Add support for site up checks and basic advisory checks on non-Joomla/WP sites
  • Split the site processing interval config option to allow software updates to be processed with bigger time gaps than update checks.
  • Add support for rebuilding update sites on client sites
  • Add new site option to force all client site communication to use HTTP POST and not use HTTP GET at all - helps with sites with very strict htaccess rules.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix for errors thrown on YourSites server when Joomla custom fields plugin is disabled
  • If Joomla update fails check for another available update before returning an error
  • Trap extension updates that fail due to bad extension package names

Release 1.5.0 - 8 February 2019

New Features

  • Support for WordPress & ClassicPress sites - please enable this in the YourSites config on the 'experimental features' tab
  • Implement Site software version block to stop Joomla or WP being upgraded accidentally to a version you are not yet ready to use. Can be configured universally or on site specific basis
  • 'Health Check' renamed 'Advisory Checks' and additional tests added. See the 'Advisory Checks' menu item under 'Site Checks'
  • New optional config option on site specific basis to only notify after a site has been down for a minimum length of time - important for sites on slow webhosts which can look as though they are down even if they are only just busy
  • Allow client plugin to force YourSites to provide 2 factor token when using direct login - this works best with YubiKey since the same token can be used on multiple websites and you just need to keep the dongle in your USB port.
  • Make sure Akeeba DLID can be used in Wordpress/Classicpress sites
  • Provide up time stats in the information block for each site

Bug Fixes

  • Correct handling to extension upgrade notices that require user interaction e.g. for Kunena
  • Fix installation and updates of WP themes/plugins that output HTML/Javascript in the raw output during installation
  • clean up duplicate extension data introduced in earlier version of YourSites - didn't affect functionality but made the table large and in could ahit performance of extension update checks

  • New 'Health Check' - first tranche of site health and basic security checks of client sites are introduced. See the 'Site Checks' menu in YourSites

Release 1.4.4 stable - 10 December 2018

Security Enhancements

Version 1.4.4 introduces 3 new security enhancements. Please see our blog article at "Security Enhancements in version 1.4.4" for a more detailed explanation of these changes.

  • Block theoretical XSS exploit from installing the client package on a hacked website.
  • Immediately remove temporary copy of client pacjage file onces its been created.

Bug fixes

  • Direct login to client sites where Akeeba AdminTools was testing a secret work was failing.
