Editing your PHP settings

You can configure settings for PHP through cPanel, this is important as it controls the size of uploaded files and allows for other process such as 'garbage' data cleanup. 

  1. Login to cPanel
  2. Go to ‘select PHP version’ within ‘software’ in the main cPanel menu
  3. Go to PHP version drop down menu -> select the version you wish to use

  4. Select ‘set as current’

  5. Select any extensions that you will require from the check menu below

  6. If you wish to alter the memory altercation you use or wish to alter any advanced setting select ‘switch top PHP options’

Care must be taken when adjusting the settings for PHP as enabling certain aspects (e.g enable-dl) can make the server more prone to security breaches. We would strongly suggest to only alter PHP settings if you are well versed in the processes and know exactly what you wish to alter before changing anything. If you are unsure please contact us via a support ticket (open a ticket) to our hosting department and we will be more than happy to offer advice around the subject of PHP and which sections to alter for the desired results.

Please note if you wish to change the PHP version you are using rather than the settings for PHP please follow this link ('What PHP version is best to use') and follow the steps given in this article.

If you should have any issues or have any questions regarding this topic please contact us via a support ticket (open a ticket) with our hosting department and we will get back to you as soon as possible.....
