In WordPress 5.2, the plugin Health Check & Troubleshooting became installed by default. It’s a tool that lets the site administrator see a lot of information about a WordPress website that can be helpful in diagnosing problems, and it also makes it quite easy to share.

To use it on WordPress 5.1 and earlier, you’ll need to first install the plugin on your site. If you’re on WordPress 5.2 or later, it’s built into WordPress itself, without needing a plugin.

To use the Health Check, from the WordPress admin dashboard, under “Tools” click “Site Health”.

In the WordPress admin dashboard, under “Tools”, click on “Site Health”.

The first tab, “Status”, contains a synopsis and highlights any recommendations, like upgrading software, changing server configurations, etc.

The Site Health’s Status page shows recommendations on how to improve the site’s security and performance.

This info is useful for you, the site administrator. It also gives recommendations for each.

The “Info” tab contains more details and the button “copy info to clipboard” which can be used to copy all the info for sharing easily.

Does that all make sense? Let me know in the comments.
