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 Tools menu which displays standard phpinfo() feedback details to the user.

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

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.
