Mythic WP Management


This plugin enables automated data collection as part of the third party Mythic Beasts Managed WordPress Hosting service, and provides relevant notices to administrative users. Without this service the plugin will have very limited functionality.

When enabled, it stores a randomly generated key in the WordPress options, then allows querying the following information when that key is provided:

  • IP Address of the server, and an identifier which is generated from the IP address and sites install path.
  • System User Name, user and group ID numbers WordPress is running as.
  • PHP Version, handler and extentions available to WordPress.
  • Location of WordPress on the server, along with URLs it’s configured with.
  • WordPress core version and automatic update setting.
  • Email address of the configured WordPress administrator.
  • A list of Plugins installed, and information about available updates.
  • A list of Themes installed, and information about available updates.
  • Hashes of the core, plugin and theme files.
  • Various other variables.
  • A timestamp of when this information was last queried.

No information is sent automatically, and this plugin only outputs the data when the stored key is provided in a normal web request.

Users will not typically need to install this, as it will usually be added as part of the management of the site.

Installation however is simply a case of uploading the plugin to your blog and activating it.

A key to access the data will then be stored in the WordPress options, and that will be retrieved automatically and used to query the site as part of the service from Mythic Beasts.
