Importance of Checking

First, here you can find the info about the version of your WordPress. So if your version is not the latest, you should upgrade it. Besides that, check the URL of the site in order to know how the link of your site looks.

Second, here you’ll see a function of WP Multisite. It is a mode for working with many WP projects using one general database. If one day you decide to create more than one site, you should set up Multisite feature. Also, there is information about the maximum size of uploadings.

Third, you’ll see the info about the structure of permalinks, language, timezone, admin email, and debug mode.

And finally, the most important thing you have to check is Memory limit.
You have 40M by default. While actively working with WordPress, you can run into the Memory limit exceeded error. So you won’t be able to continue working. In order to avoid this, you should set up the proper memory limit.

Increasing the Memory Limit

Find the wp-config.php file on your hard drive.

wp-config.php file

Scroll down until you see the line saying, “Happy Blogging”. Copy:

define ('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M'); 

And paste it before this line and save changes.

Copy define ('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M'

After this go to the System Info block and check the changes.

Now you won’t face difficulties with the lack of memory limit.
