Nice, this would also be really good as Dashboard panel!

Health Check updated to version 1.1 on 30th of May 2011

  • Includes compatibility with XML Importer
  • Added integration into Nick Dunn's Dashboard extension
  • Code's a lot tidier!

Great work on the extension, Phil!

I encountered an error while testing out the extension. I've posted it as an issue on the extension's bug tracker.

Health Check updated to version 1.1.1 on 31st of May 2011

Big thanks to Allen for his testing. The issue has been fixed

Health Check updated to version 1.3 on 8th of July 2011


  • added workspace folders
  • added exception handling

Health Check updated to version 1.4 on 25th of July 2011


  • Added a rudimentary test which runs against your server to determine the best permissions for your environment. If it fails it will default to Symphony defaults.
  • This came about from this discussion so thanks to all those involved.

Any issues, please log via github.

Where exactly does health check try to create the test directory? I guess it might not really be working at all on a shared server where FTP and PHP-Users are separated?

Thanks for any hints!
