Joomla upgrades, backup and maintenance all from a single dashboard
Monday, 03 September 2012 / Blog
Today we are proud to announce the launch of Watchful, a backup, update and monitoring service for Joomla web sites.
By giving you the power to remotely update all of your Joomla web sites in one convenient location, Watchful saves you time and ensures that critical maintenance tasks are implemented consistently and thoroughly.
In addition to updating Joomla and Joomla add-ons, Watchful comes packed with useful features. Perhaps most important among them is the remote backup feature since all web sites should be backed up before applying any upgrade.
Watchful also adds comprehensive activity logging to all of your Joomla web sites. This allows Watchful to notify you when important files are modified or when web services such as PHP are changed. Since these features of your site rarely change, any notification may indicate unauthorized activity on your web site.
Anything Digital and inetis – a fruitful partnership
Watchful is developed and maintained by our two companies inetis and Anything Digital. The Watchful service arose from our need for a single, unified dashboard to monitor all of the web sites in our portfolios.
Over the last 3 years, it has evolved from a strictly internal project to its current state as a simple, complete and professional service for web site administrators and web development agencies using Joomla.
In April we decided to pool resources and build the Watchful service. We hope that our friends, colleagues and — with luck — the global Joomla community will find the service useful and reasonably priced.
