Each site created in Daspanel has one or more versions and one of them will always be the active version, that is, the one whose content will be displayed when accessing the URL of the site.

See the diagram below for how it works:

Daspanel sites versions
In the drawing above is an example of a website that has 3 versions and each one uses a different engine as well as the type of the site is different.

So when you access the URL of the site the content that will be displayed is what is stored in the Initial version version, which is the active version of the site.

The versions feature is very useful for:

  • Implement and test new features on a site without affecting the active version of it.
  • Test the operation of the website on a different type of engine. For example: the active site is made in Wordpress with PHP 5.6 and wants to know if it will work with PHP 7.1.
  • Develop a new version of the site using a totally different engine or application type.

When a new site is created it will always have a first default version called "Initial version".
