WordPress 3.2 Requirements

If you like this plugin why not do any or all of the following: 

  • Link to it so others can find it.
  • Give it a 5 star rating on WordPress.org

According to the guys at WordPress, June 30, 2011 is the drop date for WordPress 3.2. Giggity!

The good news is the improvements to existing features and faster page loads is the mantra of this version.

The not so good news it WordPress 3.2 will be dropping support for:

  • PHP version 5.1 and below, 5.2 will be the minimum.
  • You’ll need MySQL version 5.0.15 or above running the database

They’ll also be dropping support for IE 6 and phasing out IE 7 support. Yes! A cheer erupts from the designers of the world.

So the question is:

Are you ready for WordPress 3.2?

If your not sure your server meets the minimum requrements for 3.2 I created a WordPress Plugin to let you know.

Do you need help upgrading?

Most hosting companies will help you upgrade your server, sometimes it’s as simple as telling the server in your .htaccess file to treat all the .php extension as PHP 5.
