Runtime Configuration

You can change some PHP default values at runtime by putting your settings in a file named .user.ini and placed in the directory with your php files. Here are some setting that you may need to change with the default values in parenthesis.

memory_limit = 32M           ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (8MB)
upload_max_filesize = 10M    ; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files. (10MB)

You may want to create an info.php file that will tell you the current settings.

  • You must pay attention to file permissions, see suEXEC pages.
  • Your individual error logs will be in ix:/var/log/apache/userlogs/username.errors
