    Can I install plugins and develop child themes using Managed WordPress?

    I'm considering moving a to a managed wp package for a client.

    Can I install plugins (i.e. wordfence, caos, etc..) and develop child themes?

    anyone else doing that under the managed wordpress packages?

    Hi @rdominguez,

     

    Yes, you can!  That is exactly what it is for.

     

    In the event that you need to manipulate the php environment/parameters you might consider the business cPanel (I've used it and its outstanding with WP).   Its more flexible than the Managed WP hosting, but you'll need caching and some performance tweaks.

     

    Hope this helps,
