Perhaps you’ve seen Diagnosis, a new Wordpress plugin for telling people all the different versions of things they have. It’s rather complicated, and basically just a big list of items the author thinks is valuable for configuring a server. Some of them, such as server IP addresses and ports, are completely silly values that you’d have to know to get a functioning Wordpress install to run the plugin on–a definite catch 22. Much of the rest are just a subset of what you’d get from a call to phpinfo().
That makes this plugin, which inserts phpinfo into the Wordpress admin panel’s dashboard, a perfect complement or replacement for Diagnosis:
Feel free to download and extract admininfo.zip to your wp-content/plugins/ directory, activate, and enjoy as a new tab on the dashboard.
By default WP Admin Info displays information like:
- Server operating system
- PHP, mySQL, and Apache versions
- Webserver hostname and port
- PHP extension information
Well, you could just read the manual about phpinfo. It’s all I’ve ever needed to debug or diagnose an installation of Wordpress.
