I can't read those stored values - a sample snapshot is as below.

If you know how to decode/read/parse them, please share.

  • I'm newbie to Wordpress, please guide more details on how to run your PHP call. Thank you ^^ – Nam G VU Jul 7 '15 at 11:00
  • run it like you run any other php code. It returns a value. var_dump(get_site_transient('update plugins'));. If you want to hook it somewhere then there's another process. – Karun Jul 7 '15 at 11:08
