PHP Extensions Audit Continues

The Hosting Community team has been asked to audit the list of recommend PHP extensions in the Hosting Community handbook. Thank you to everyone who has participated! Some details being discussed are:

• Should the Hosting Handbook recommend extensions beyond what core requires?
• Should Site Health Check recommend extensions beyond what core requires?
• Where should requirements and recommendations for core be located?
• What changes would you recommend making to the current list?

Some hosts mentioned that offering both a list of required extensions as well as recommended ones would be useful, provided that it is made clear what is required and what is not.

Some ideas are:

• Info on PHP extensions could be provided as a phpinfo page under Site Health – > Info in wp-admin.

• An alert in wp-admin could notify users if a required extension is missing.

• List extensions both required and recommended in the handbook for reference.

Trac ticket #47454 was filed in relation to the PHP extensions audit. Feel free to add to the Trac ticket and continue the discussion here:
