WordPress, the most famous blogging platform announce that they are going to release the latest version WordPress 3.2 within few days and they have change the web-hosting requirement to run the latest version. So question comes in mind that “Are your web-host ready for the WordPress 3.2?”
The latest version of WordPress 3.2 required your web-host need to be running PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0, As I know the new requirement, instantly checked my host and found my HostGator hosting running
"WikiNol server is running PHP version 5.2.17 and MySQL version 5.1.52 which will be great for WordPress 3.2 onward."
So it’s OK for us to upgrade for the latest version.
How to Check PHP and MySQL version of Your Web-Host?
To check PHP and MySQL version of your web host you need to Log in to your hosting account, and check to make sure you have at least PHP 5.2.4 and MySQL 5.0. If you unable to find this information in your hosting account or you don’t even know how to get access to your hosting control panel then install this useful plugin call Health check and it will tell you if your web-host is compatible for latest WordPress 3.2 or not.
To install Health Check plugin simply go to add new plugin, and search “Health Check” then install and activate and you will see the above screen.
If your web host not running on the basic requirement for WordPress 3.2, contact your host’s customer service ask them to help you.
I am very exited about the latest WordPress 3.2 due to New Twenty Eleven default theme, Distraction-free Writing, Faster blog loading and lots more new features.
My personal suggestion please not to upgrade your blog via Automatic upgrade when WordPress 3.2 will be release otherwise dashboard caught down. Make sure you’re running compatible versions of PHP and MySQL then only use one click upgrade.
