Display PHP Version

If (like me) you mange multiple WordPress sites, you’ll understand that it is pretty easy to lose track of the WordPress and PHP version a particular site is running on. There have been several times lately that I needed to know quickly what PHP version is active, to help with debugging etc.

You can easily see the WordPress version in the ‘Right Now’ admin dashboard widget, so I wrote a simple Plugin to extend this and add on the PHP version too! The result looks like this:

So you can now see at a glance what version of PHP your site is running! Let me know what you think. Do you find this useful too?

Download the latest version of ‘Display PHP Version’ from the WordPress Plugin Repository.

      Actually I did add in the MySQL version initially but then took it out as I thought the PHP version was more important. I will consider adding it back in, in a future version.
