Adjust PHP.ini settings

The PHP.ini file is a configuration file for the PHP application and this is read in when a page is started. If you have the appropriate knowledge, you can set or adapt this PHP.ini according to your needs.

Here you can now choose for which directory you want to change the PHP.ini settings. By default your website is located in the directory «/public_html».

By default your website is located in the directory «/public_html». If you want to change the PHP.ini settings for this directory, please click on the arrow symbol on the right and then on the button «Configure PHP.ini» below the information.

You now have the choice between:

5.1.1 Custom PHP.ini settings

If you want to make your own PHP.ini settings, select the item «Custom PHP.ini settings».

You will immediately be shown below the corresponding options you have when designing the PHP.ini file. Currently the following settings can be set:

  • display_errors: Enabled, PHP errors are displayed on your website
  • short_open_tag: Enabled, PHP scripts may also start with «<?» otherwise they must start with «<?php»
  • error_reporting: Determines what kind of errors are displayed on the web page when «display_errors» is enabled
  • max_execution_time: Maximum time in seconds a script may run before the parser stops execution
  • max_file_uploads: Determines how many files can be passed to PHP for processing at a time
  • max_input_time: Maximum time in seconds that a script may spend processing input data (such as POST, GET and file uploads)
  • max_input_vars: Maximum number of variables handled by PHP in a process

More information about the settings in the php.ini file can be found on the official PHP website.
