Support » Requests and Feedback » Site Health Status – PHP message

  • Resolved zactoff

    The new Site Health check page shows the message that PHP should be updated if less than latest version (would be helpful to show which version *is* running right there) but links through the page: https://wordpress.org/support/update-php/ which recommends installing a PHP compatibility checker plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/php-compatibility-checker/ which is flagged as not having been update for the last 3 major WP versions and appears to be abandoned.

    This doesn’t seem like good practice… is this the right forum for this kind of feedback or is there somewhere more appropriate I should be raising it?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • For getting the Site Health messaging changed, it would be a core Trac ticket. You can search for existing ones and open a new one here: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/

    For the message on the plugin page and the PHP update page, it would be a meta Trac ticket. You can search and open new tickets here: https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/

    The message on the plugin page was changed fairly recently. It used to warn about plugins older than 2 years. Now it is latest 3 WP versions, but the versions are coming out a lot more often than they used to. So that needs to be addressed. That plugin is not abandoned (updated only 4 months ago), and the authors were involved with the creation of the PHP update page.

    Cool, thanks for the info, all clear 🙂
