????️ By WebFacing. Shows disk usage, memory, cpu and processes resource usage information, recommendations and alerts, plus number of created email accounts, in your admin Dashboard At a Glance widget, a special Dashboard Gauges widget, plus error logs and extensive info on Tools – Site Health panels.

Includes an email routing test (when server is not authority, routing must be remote).

Also includes a Site Health test for HTTPS only (http should not be allowed, but forwarded to https) with information about the issue, recommendation and actions.

Made with a little help from cPanel, L.L.C., USA and PRO ISP AS, Norway – many thanks.

This plugin is a candidate to be recommended to all customers by PRO ISP AS, Norway.

    Known limitations

  • Links to documentation to resolve reported issues are shown to PRO ISP AS customers only.
  • This plugin will probably not report much if the site is not on a cPanel® managed server, but will do the test for HTTPS only.
  • Resource gauges in dashboard widget suffers interference from Site Kit plugin by Google. Gauges not shown.
