Supported Features

We support the following features in our integration with the WP Engine status page:

  • Down Notifications

    If WP Engine is having system outages or experiencing other critical issues, red down notifications appear on the status page. In most cases, it means that core functions are not working properly, or there is some other serious customer-impacting event underway.

  • Warn Notifications

    Warn notifications are used when WP Engine is undergoing a non-critical issue like minor service issues, performance degradation, non-core bugs, capacity issues, or problems affecting a small number of users.

  • Differentiates Maintenance Notices

    WP Engine posts separate notifications for planned maintenance work. StatusGator will notify subscribers when WP Engine enters a pre-planned maintenance window, keeping you up to date.

  • Proactive Maintenance Monitoring
  • Status Overview
  • Status Details
  • Component Status Filtering

    Because WP Engine has several components, each with their individual statuses, StatusGator can differentiate the status of each component in our notifications to you. This means, you can filter your status page notifications based on the services, regions, or components you utilize. This is a very useful feature for complex services with many components or services spread out across many regions.

WP Engine status page says the service is up, but I'm having issues. What's wrong?

There may be several reasons for that:

  • An outage that hasn't been communicated yet via the WP Engine status page.
  • Some local issues with a small group of accounts on the service side.
  • Technical issues on your side, or problems with your software or ISP.
  • A misconfiguration on your side.

We recommend contacting WP Engine customer support while checking everything on your side. You can also try Tweeting at them via @wpengine on Twitter. Or visit their official status page or website:
