Strictly System Check

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.

  1. Download the plugin.
  2. Unzip the strictly-system-check compressed file.
  3. Upload the directory strictly-system-check to the /wp-content/plugins directory on your WordPress blog.
  4. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  5. Use the newly created Admin option within WordPress titled Strictly System Check to set the configuration options for the plugin.
  6. Use the Test Configuration button to ensure that your plugin will work correctly.
  7. Set up a CRON job or WebCron job to run the system checker at intervals of your choice. The plugin will display the correct code and URL's to use for any CRON job.


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
