Setup Account(s)

Before using Self-hosted Wordpress you will need to setup your account.

To do so, navigate to: Accounts > "Self Hosted Wordpress".

From there you can add multiple accounts and organize them into folders.

To create an account, click "Add Self Hosted Wordpress" button.

A new pop-up window will appear where you will need to enter your Domain, your Username and Password.

When you finish click on "Create" button to create your account. You can also use hover over your created account and use the test domain button (a heart icon) to test your account credentials.

Which Password to use for your Self-hosted Wordpress Account ?

When you add a new Self Hosted Wordpress you need to enter domain, username and password. Although domain and username is standard for your Wordpress, this is not the case for the password.

There are two different scenarios / passwords you can use:

  1. Application Password (generated within your Wordpress user account) - recommended

  2. Your account password (which requires a plug-in) - not recommended.

Using Application Password

To create an Application Password, from your Wordpress navigate: Users > Profile.

Write a name on "New Application Password Name" field.

Click on "Add New Application Password" button.

A new password has been generated. Copy that password and use it when you add a new Wordpress account on Self Hosted Wordpress.

Your Account Password

If you want, you can also use your default Wordpress account password, without the need to create a new application password, but this method is not recommended.

If you want to use your account password, you will need to install JSON Basic Authentication plug-in for this method to work.

Download JSON Basic Authentication plug-in from the following link:

After downloading the plug-in, install it on your Wordpress site.

When you install the plug-in you need to activate it. Go to "Installed Plugins" where you will see all installed plugins. From there, locate "JSON Basic Authentication" plug-in and click "Activate".

You are now ready to use your own account password.
