Add PHP requirement to plugin info retrieved trough API call
|Reported by:||petervanderdoes||Owned by:||ryan|
Add a field to the header of the readme.txt
Requires at least PHP: 5.2
Use this field in the back end, to be returned when calling:
adding it to the transient 'update_plugins'.
Then when a plug-in upgrade is available and the plugin changed to require PHP5 with in the core the option to upgrade could be disabled with some info that the PHP version X is required and the server runs PHP version Y.
Using a check during the on activation hook means that during an upgrade of the plugin the old version is already removed and the user would have to download and install the previous version of the plugin.
