WP Healthcheck


WP Healthcheck is a plugin to check the health of your WordPress install.

It detects some useful information regarding your site health, like the number of active transients and autoload options, and then bring them up to you via Dashboard.

After that, it can help you to improve your site performance by cleaning up the transients and deactivating autoload options.

Also, WP Healthcheck verifies for the version of the softwares installed in your server. To perform this verification, the plugin retrieves data from our external API and then compare the versions available in our API versus the ones installed in your server.

Finally, it checks your SSL certificate expiration date, and send notifications in your Dashboard when it is about to expire or already expired.
