Health Check


This plugin will perform a number of checks on your WordPress install to detect
common configuration errors and known issues.

For now it just checks the PHP and MySQL versions of your server are not too low
to meet the requirements that we have announced for WordPress 3.2

Once it has checked the versions it will feed back the results under the header of the Plugins page.

In future this plugin will also provide a whole suite of checks for other things which
may be affecting your install.

Whats a Heath Check?

Other than tell you your sql and php versions, not much to this other than the misspelling of the plugin name in the dashboard.
