Description

When activating a plugin which has a minimum PHP version version requirement that's higher than that which is installed, the following message is shown in a wp_die() error:

Current PHP version does not meet minimum requirements for <plugin>.

This is a blocking error and doesn't provide the user with any information to help them make a decision about what to do next.

Some helpful information should be added to this screen:

  • The plugins' minimum required PHP version
  • The current PHP version
  • A link to the support documentation on how to update PHP
