Updating WordPress Core for Individual Sites Using Dollie's Control HQ

Keeping WordPress core updated is crucial for the security and functionality of your websites. Although Dollie's Control HQ doesn't currently support bulk updating of WordPress core across multiple sites simultaneously, it does offer a straightforward way to update WordPress core for individual sites. This guide will walk you through the process of updating WordPress core for a single site at a time using Control HQ.


- Administrator access to your Dollie Control HQ dashboard.
- Identification of the sites that need a WordPress core update.

Step 1: Access the Site Dashboard

Log into Dollie Dashboard: Sign into your Dollie account.
Navigate to the Specific Site: In Control HQ, go to the dashboard of the site you wish to update.

Step 2: Open the WP Core Section

Locate the WP Core Section: Within the site’s dashboard, find and click on the 'WP Core' section. Here you can view the current WordPress version and available updates.

Step 3: Update WordPress Core

Check for Updates: If an update is available, it will be indicated in this section.
Initiate the Update: Click on the option to update WordPress. This might be labeled as ‘Update Now’ or something similar.
Monitor the Update Process: Ensure the update process completes successfully. This may take a few minutes.

Step 4: Verify the Update

Check WordPress Version: After the update process is completed, verify that the site is running the latest WordPress version.
Test Site Functionality: It's good practice to briefly test the site to ensure that the update hasn't affected the site's functionality or features.


Updating WordPress core for each site individually via Dollie's Control HQ ensures that your sites are running the latest and most secure version of WordPress. While bulk updating is not available, this method provides a controlled environment to manage and monitor updates on a site-by-site basis.
