Strictly System Check is a plugin that periodically checks your site checking your database and server and reporting if any problems are found.
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
You may need to grant write/execute permission for the plugin folder to the website so that the configuration file and report can be written out correctly. The plugin will give you the correct CHMOD code to run to grant these permissions.
To access the current webserver load averages the website will need to be able to run system functions such as e.g shell_exec, system, passthru. If you are running you own server or virutal server this shouldn't be a problem but if you are on a shared server you might have to ask your systme administrator to set the relevant permissions for you to be able to do this. The Test Configuration button will tell you whether or not this is a problem. Even if you cannot run system functions the plugin will still be able to report on key info such as whether the site is up or down and whether the database is overloaded or not.
If you have problems with the plugin then please read the help section and do not contact me. This plugin is free and if you are not willing to pay for support or features then use the help forums for any issues. The plugin works perfectly well on my server a LINUX Virtual Server with the latest version of WordPress. If you are having problems then you need to do the obvious things to resolve them such as: -Rule out other plugins causing problems by only running this plugin. Uninstall all others and run this on it's own, then re-install the others one by one until you rule out either this or another plugin as the problem. -Turn the WP_DEBUG contant on in wp-config.php and check for error messages -Turn on my own DEBUGSYSCHECK constant in strictly-system-check.php to show my own messages on the screen and work out whats wrong from that. -Ensure that you have granted all your files permissions, that your site can make HTTP requests, access system information etc. However the "Test Config" button would check all these anyway. -If you cannot run the "Test Config" button then you have a different problem and sending me a screenshot of a white page isn't going to help in any shape or form. If that is the problem then you can either debug the issue yourself or choose to pay me to do it, but I would need full access to your site and server. However my time is expensive.
