FAQ

  1. So what’s this do then?

    Basically this plugin will tell you the servers hostname that your WordPress is run on. This means if you’re in a shared environment it will report the shared servers hostname. If you’re in a clustered environment then it will report the hostname that handled the current request.

  2. Is this only useful for Clustered setups?

    No, but they benefit the most from it.

    It saves users the time and effort it takes to SSH into servers and tail log files. This plugin could also be useful for WordPress users hosted via a Platform as a Service (PaaS).
