How to modify php.ini on localhost
- First of all, you need to turn on the software. In this case, it’s WAMP.
- Open your favorite code editor to create a .php file. In this case, we use Dreamweaver. Add this piece of code to the new file:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
Save the file to your computer. You can name it info.php.
- Open the local Disk. Locate wamp folder, then open www folder. Copy this info.php file to wamp/www folder.
Note: If you have another software, the location can be different.
- Open the browser. Type localhost/info.php in the address bar. You will see a table of available settings.
Try to search with php.ini as the keyword. In Loaded Configuration File field, you will see the path to php.ini file. In this case, it’sC:wampbinapacheapache2.4.9binphp.ini. Just follow the path to find the file.
Here is the php.ini file that you need to edit. Just open and edit the file, then save it.
