Administrators and resellers can configure predefined schedules and/or forcibly activate one or more predefined schedules. Backups can be maintained at remote locations when this feature in used in conjunction with the Remote Backups feature.
- Backup Quotas
Administrators and resellers can configure backup quotas. Quotas can be applied per account, per domain, or per installed application, with per megabyte or per backup count restrictions.
- Improved UI and UX
The whole user-interface has been re-appraised. Out-of-style elements have been replaced with modern counterparts and many new minor features and improvements have been added systemwide.
- Version Changelogs
Application version changelogs have been integrated systemwide. Website owners can browse version-to-version changes to easily distinguish between significant versions that add major features, versions that patch critical security flaws, and other minor versions.
- Website Showcase
Website owners can browse websites powered by an application to observe the range of capabilities provided by the application.
- WordPress Integration
Website owners can update WordPress plugins and themes right through the Installatron user-interface. Plugins and themes can even be configured to automatically update as new versions become available.
- Email Improvements
Email templates have been overhauled. The new system includes support for group-specific and language-specific templates with the ability to toggle specific templates on/off.
Administrators can configure Installatron Plugin servers to automatically and continuously inherit their entire Installatron Plugin configuration from a single master Installatron Plugin server.
Administrators and resellers now inherit all of their website owners' installed applications and domains. Install applications or perform any installed application task serverwide without ever logging in as the website owner directly.
Servers currently using the RELEASE channel with automatic updating enabled should be moved to the STABLE channel if automatic updating to the new version is not desired (Installatron Admin > Settings).
