View Full Version : Overiding hosting's PHP.ini

02-02-2007, 10:07 PM
Uploaded a php.ini to my hosting server to override some of their setting for post_max_size. But I didn't want to upload my php.ini b/c I'm on a windows machine and the host is a linux machine. I didn't know how this would affect the PHP engine. So I uploaded a php.ini that only changed the post_max_size. But I noticed that since I didn't place upload_max_filesize it defaulted to 2M. I was thinking it would use whatever the HOST was using. So I added the following settings. What other settings should I explicitly set? Or should i just upload my php.ini file?


post_max_size = 25M
upload_max_filesize =25M
max_execution_time = 50000
memory_limit = 40M

If a directive is miising from the php.ini file then PHP will use built-in defaults for that directive (as can be seen in the php-ini-dist file).

I would copy your hosts php.ini file and just change what you need to change.

you dont need to override the php.ini file... you can set the size limit by .httacess file or in php as well..
