Recommended PHP Server Modules

How To check your hosting PHP Limits

Even if you make changes in wp-config.xml, it is possible the limits do not change because your server is limited from server settings.

On shared hosting, the limits will be managed from server end in order to be able to accommodate hundreds/thousands of clients on the same machine.

You may not be able to change these recommendations from PHP ini or wp-config.

A plugin you can install just to check PHP version is  https://wordpress.org/plugins/display-php-version/  Remove the plugin after you used it as it’s not necessary to stay as an active plugin.
