Built-in Server Info

If you open your Item Dashboard -> Status, you can find a Server Info tab there, which will automatically check all these values and ideally mark them all in green. If some of them are highlighted in yellow, it may lead to minor inconveniences such as slow website loading or incomplete demo import. However, if some of them are highlighted in red, you should fix this to avoid more serious problems related to not meeting the minimum requirements.
