Back in November, SiteDash learned a new cool trick by remotely upgrading MODX. To celebrate the MODX 2.7.1 release, that has now been extended to allow upgrading many sites at once with a new batch upgrade tool.

With the new Upgrade Sites button, you can choose which of your sites to upgrade, and to what version, and watch them all get upgraded after just a few clicks.

Upgrades are queued to happen one-by-one, starting 45 seconds apart. A full database backup and a backup of changed files is created for you first, and detailed logs are available for each individual upgrade, so you can revert if needed.

Most upgrades take 30-60 seconds to complete, making SiteDash one of the most (if not the most) efficient process of upgrading dozens or hundreds of MODX sites.
