Best plugin for PHP version

By Gabriel Reguly on December 21, 2022

Great option for quickly finding out which PHP version is being used.

Thank you for coding it.

A plugin to show a php version, really?

By theking2 on September 25, 2022

This is such a waste of bytes I don't know where to begin. create a file info.php containing <?php phpinfo(); and open it in your favorite browser. Seriously have you all gone plugin mad?

Lightwight, simple, awesome.

Works as described. Useful

By michaeltaiwan on June 22, 2021

In the section AT A GLANCE on the WP Dashboard, it shows PHP version and SQL version on hover: Server running PHP version: 8.0.3. MySQL version: 5.7.33 Would be nice if it could warning us to UPGRADE PHP version when necessary

Does As Promised

There isn't much to this plugin, but it does exactly what it promises in a clean and simple way that doesn't require any hunting.

Simple but vital

By Ian MP (ianmp) on May 8, 2021

A very simple but vital plugin that provides much needed valuable information. This feature should be standard in WordPress and not have to be addressed by an add-on, as easily identifying your PHP and SQL version can be crucial to solving system conflicts.

Kind of a default go-to

By jh20001 on May 7, 2021

This plugin has lasted a long time thanks to how simple it is. Given, the latest update the dev has done, it may now have a 5% (vs 1%) chance of ever having a part of it face some kind of deprecation edit later on. It is simple, and it doesn't tax the resources of your WP install any. It is quite possibly one of the most default go-to items as it is so very useful to have your current PHP version available to your eyes on the back-end anytime you need it. The new update is nice, allowing for MySQL version to display on hover. Glad to see that it has been updated and pushes on.

Simple and Effective
