This plugin checks your server for some basic environment information to ensure compatibility with Event Espresso, the premium event management plugin for WordPress. While it’s possible to use this plugin for general environment information, it is primarily focussed on providing information that would benefit or relate to your Event Espresso installation.
It is not recommended to leave this plugin active.
While it won’t harm your server in any way if you do, there are a number of checks and global variables that are set that don’t need to be running all the time.
If you have any feature requests or issues, please post to the plugin forums on WordPress.org.
