WordPress.org and PHP & MySQL statistics
7 months ago, in post Phone Home or when an application sends data back to mothership, I said:
If WordPress could make its PHP/MySQL statistics public, then Piwigo wouldn’t need to create its own phoning home feature!
And it seems that my wish has now come true! WordPress.org has recently added a Statistics page with the versions of WordPress, PHP and MySQL.
This is really interesting to me. We have a clear idea of how many web application users are still using old versions of PHP (ie 92.8% are using PHP 5.2+) or MySQL (ie 96.3% are using MySQL 5.0+). It shows that not so many users are still under very old PHP versions!
Thank you WordPress for doing the dirty work of collecting this data, and thank you WordPress.org for publishing the info!
