Install/Update Multiple Site Manager

Note

Before updating to a new version of Multiple Site Manager insure that you are running the latest version of ExpressionEngine.

Step 1

The first step is simply to download the Multiple Site Manager software once you purchase it. Unzip the software to your local computer.

Step 2

After unzipping the package you will find a system directory.

  • Upload system/expressionengine/libraries/Sites.php to your system/expressionengine/libraries directory.
  • Upload system/expressionengine/controllers/cp/sites.php to your system/expressionengine/controllers/cp directory.
  • Upload system/expressionengine/language/english/sites_lang.php

Step 3

If you are updating, there are no further steps required.

If you are installing for the first time, in your ExpressionEngine Control Panel, go to Admin ‣ General Configuration. Set Enable Multiple Site Manager to ‘Yes’ and submit the form to save your preferences.

That’s it, the Multiple Site Manager is now installed. Clicking the name of your Site in the upper right corner of the Control Panel will bring up your Sites menu. Sites is a straight-forward, but very powerful add-on. Please thoroughly review the documentation before using the Multiple Site Manager.
