This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Debug Info


Debug Info will provide you with information on your current WordPress operating environment. This is a helpful tool for you or a developer to use when trying to identify the root cause of an error, or other issue you may experience.

Debug Info provides the following information:

  • WordPress version currently running on the site

  • Current/active WordPress theme name, theme version, theme author, and theme URI

  • List of active plugins

  • PHP version

  • MySQL version

  • Apache version

  • Full phpinfo() server environment information

Thanks to Ogi Djuraskovic for the Spanish (es_ES) and Serbian (sr_RS) language translations.

Will this plugin fix the problems my site is having?

No, however it may help identify potential issues.

I don’t understand most of the information this plugin produces.

If you need help fixing a problem, the information this plugin produces is helpful in order to identify compatibility issues between themes and plugins or different WordPress versions. PHP information is provided to help identify any potential server side conflicts.

I installed the plugin, and it hasn’t helped identify the problem.

This plugin may not identify every problem your site may face.

For example, if your site gets hacked, this plugin will not be able to identify that. However, it will be able to identify if you are using an outdated version of WordPress or a theme, which may indicate potential security holes.

Can I translate this plugin?

Sure! Once you have translated it, let me know and I’ll be sure to get your translation included in the next update.

A very small and simple but helpful plugin showing useful server properties. Replaces the phpinfo plugin and provides some additional information. It is placed in the menu "Tools".
