This is a simple plugin that tells you what server your WordPress is running on. It's super useful for when you run WordPress in a clustered, or mulit-server, environment.

Description

Do you run your WordPress in a Cluster based setup?
Ever need to know what server your request came from?
Don't want to have to dig into server access logs to do it?

Look no further, this is just the plugin you're looking for.

Hello Server adds a menu-node to the Admin Toolbar that tells you what server your request was sent from! In the new Hello Server menu you'll find the current servers hostname and IP!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. So what's this do then?

    Basically this plugin will tell you the servers hostname that your WordPress is run on. This means if you're in a shared environment it will report the shared servers hostname. If you're in a clustered environment then it will report the hostname that handled the current request.

  2. Is this only useful for Clustered setups?

    No, but they benefit the most from it.

    It saves users the time and effort it takes to SSH into servers and tail log files. This plugin could also be useful for WordPress users hosted via a Platform as a Service (PaaS).
