WP Server Stats

Description

WP Server Stats plugin will give you the ability to monitor your WordPress site at it’s core level. With all most important server stats like allocated memory, realtime memory & CPU usage etc. you can always identify if something wrong is going on with your site.

Also now you don’t have to contact your host every single time for minor things. You can easy see the server stats at your WP admin dashboard and take curtail decision based on that, like if enabling some plugin is consuming a lot of memory or CPU etc.

It took countless hours (70 hrs+) to code, design, test and include many useful server info that you like so much to show up in your WordPress dashboard. If you enjoy this plugin and understand the huge effort I put into this, please consider donating some amount (no matter how small) for keeping aliave the development of this plugin. Thank you again for using my plugin. Also if you love using this plugin, I would really appiciate if you take 2 minutes out of your busy schedule to share your review about this plugin.

READ BEFORE INSTALLING

This plugin uses PHP shell_exec() function which is by default enabled by all good hosting companies. But a small percentage of hosting company disable shell_exec() by default. So, please contact your hosting company to make sure shell_exec() is enabled in your account before installing this plugin. Otherwise you will get an ERROR Code EXEC096T for every feature that uses shell_exec().

Now this plugin is also hosted in Github. But the Github repo will be used for the development of the plugin. So, from now on you can also report the bugs in Github Issue Tracker if you want.

Very Important Note

This plugin has been developed and tested for Linux based server only so there is a very high chance that it might NOT work for Windows based servers. So I highly recommend this plugin to be used by those users who uses a Linux based server.
I currently has no plan to add Windows Server support as a very tiny amount of people still use Windows Server in this Linux age. I may add Windows support in future.

ERROR Code List

EXEC096T – PHP shell_exec() function has not been enabled in your account, which this plugin highly needs to run properly. So contact your server host and ask them to enable PHP shell_exec() function for your account.

IP096T – Your server is not returning the IP properly. There is definately some issue with your server configuration. Please contact your host and tell then that PHP gethostbyname( gethostname() ) is unable to get the server IP, ask them to look into thier server configuration and to fix the configuration issue. If you have a self hosted VPS or dedicated server, the reason is still the same. If you are unable to find the configuartion issue inside your server, I highly suggest you to hire a knowledgable server admin to look into your server. In most cases you should never get this error message.

Languages

WP Server Stats is 100% compatible with translation and you can translate any text to whatever language you want. As this plugin doesn’t comes with an in-built translation, I will suggest you to use plugin like Say What? to change the texts, you just have to use the text domain as wp-server-stats within the plugin to change the texts.

Very Special Thanks

The list of people whom I wanna specially thanks without whom this plugin would have never been completed.

Reviews

Excellent Plugin

Excellent plugin, the only one I’ve found to provide deep (but clear) insight into site performance and demand on my VPS.

Simple & Light

1. It shows memory usage of the entire site + plugins on the bottom of the admin page. Allows the admin to notice the difference in memory-usage for Plugins that were recently activated and to determine if similar Plugins that have the same functions can be used instead.
2. Compatible with Linux servers; unlikely to work with Windows servers.
3. The essential information: CPU usage, memory usage, server location, database version & type, server version & type, PHP version & stats, server software, etc.
4. More importantly, it’s light & doesn’t have any of the non-essential trash.

Easy, Clear, Simple plugin. Allowed me to check php.ini and .htaccess values

Easy, Clear, Simple plugin. Allowed me to check and find that php.ini and .htaccess values were not applied to my server/install.

I am now asking my hosting company why I cannot apply these values on my server:

php.ini
max_execution_time=600
max_input_time=600
max_input_vars=10000
memory_limit=512M
post_max_size=1G
upload_max_filesize=2G

.htaccess
php_value max_execution_time 600
php_value max_input_time 600
php_value max_input_vars 10000
php_value memory_limit 512M
php_value post_max_size 1G
php_value upload_max_filesize 2G

Maybe you have already met this problem ?

Thank you again for the great plugin !
