WordPress phpinfo()


It’s important for a non technical administrator to be able to diagnose server related problems in WordPress but also rapidly retrieve feedback regarding their web server.
This simple plugin adds an option to an administrator’s Settings menu which displays standard phpinfo() feedback details to the user.

You can then copy or email it directly from within the settings page to a support agent.

This a very simple script, designed to help the non technical user get immediate feedback about their blog.

This plugin is maintained by Chris Flannagan or you can find him on Twitter at @ChrisFlanny


16.3 You can now click a button to copy a plain text version of the phpinfo to your clipboard. Then you can paste in an email or anywhere you like.

Updates to the plugin will be posted here by the author Chris Flannagan

Great PHP info plugin!

This plugin is important if you have memory hungry websites and need to see what your hosting company’s PHP settings are. I’m looking forward to getting familiar with all the information available through this plugin.

I think this is going to be one of my “must have” plugins from now on. I’ve been looking for a plugin like this and finally found it this morning. I’m surprised there aren’t more plugins that do this.
