MultiPHP INI Editor for WHM

MultiPHP INI Editor for WHM

Overview

This interface allows you to configure your PHP settings. The PHP scripting language generates web pages.

Note:

cPanel users can view information about the server’s PHP configuration in cPanel’s MultiPHP INI Editor interface (Home >> Software >> MultiPHP INI Editor).

MultiPHP INI Editor

Select the PHP version that you wish to configure from the menu. The PHP directives will appear.

The Basic Mode section of this interface loads the directive values from the local.ini file for your selected version of PHP, if it exists. Otherwise, this interface loads the directive values from the php.ini file of your selected version of PHP. Make your changes to the desired directives and click Save.

Changes save to the /opt/cpanel/<your_php_package>/root/etc/php.d/local.ini file, where <your_php_package> represents the name of the PHP package that contains the .ini file that you wish to edit.

Notes:

  • The availability of the following directives depends on your version of PHP. If a directive does not appear in your interface, your version of PHP does not support it.
  • The listed default values mirror those on the php.net website.
PHP directive
Description
PHP default
PHP directive
Description
PHP default
allow_url_fopen Select whether PHP scripts can use URL-aware fopen wrappers. Enabled
allow_url_include Select whether PHP scripts can use URL-aware fopen wrappers with the following functions: include(), include_once(), require(), and require_once(). Disabled
asp_tags Select whether PHP scripts can use ASP-like tags in addition to PHP tags.

Note:

This includes variable-value printing shorthand (for example, <%= $value %>).

Disabled
display_errors Select whether PHP displays errors as output or hides them from the user. Disabled
enable_dl Select whether scripts can call the dl function. This function dynamically loads a PHP extension at runtime.

Warning:

If you set this directive to Enabled, it poses security risks to your server. We strongly recommend that you select Disabled unless you absolutely require the dl function.

Disabled
file_uploads Select whether your PHP scripts can upload HTTP files. Enabled

magic_quotes_gpc

Select whether PHP automatically escapes certain characters with a backslash (). Enabled
max_execution_time Enter the maximum amount of time, in seconds, that your server allows a script to run before your server terminates it. This setting limits the amount of memory that poorly-written scripts may use. 30
max_input_time Enter the maximum amount of time, in seconds, that your server allows a script to parse input data. -1
max_input_vars Enter the maximum number of input variables per request. Use this directive to deter Denial of Service (DoS) attacks that use hash collisions on input variable names. 1000
memory_limit Enter the maximum amount of memory that scripts can allocate, in bytes. This setting helps to prevent poorly-written scripts that may use too much memory.

Note:

Use the character M to define the limit in Megabytes.

128M

register_globals

Select whether GET or POST inout converts into variables that the script can use. Disabled

safe_mode

Select whether safe mode is on. Safe mode increases security for PHP scripts and enables user, group, and environment checks and controls.

Disabled
session.save_path Enter the directory in which your server stores the files that PHP creates. NULL
upload_max_filesize Enter the maximum file size for an upload, in bytes.

Note:

Use the character M to define the limit in Megabytes.

2M
