    Default Access PHP.ini

    Hi,

    Bit of a newbie with regards to CPanal and WHM. How do I access my php.ini file if it is stored in /usr/local/lib/php.ini?

    Thanks,

    H.

    Is this your server or one you have rented? If you are renting a hosting account you will only be able to make an override php.ini file for use on your sites.

    Hey gtgeorge, thanks for the quick reply.

    I have a virtual miniserver which has ssh access and I can run commands (not sure how though! ).


    However, I am fine on Windows, but a complete novice with *nix. I suppose I need to know how to run commands first.

    Never mind, I appreciate that this is quite an ambiguous question. I will ask their support team if they can shed any light on what I need to/can do.

    Thanks again for your time. I am sure with practice I will be able to master this *nux malarky!

    Jamie.

    Thank you for the help.

    I will login and see how to lauch the equivalent of cmd prompt in my WHM control panel and try running the command to see what I get.

    Thanks again - I appreciate your help as I am out on a limb here,

    Jamie.

    If you wish to edit the file, you can use

    nano /usr/local/lib/php.ini

    Might want to type nano --help first to make sure you can navigate the editor first.

    EDIT: You may also make changes to the php.ini under Service Configuration>>PHP Configuration Editor in WHM

    upload your server and find php.ini directory path name.

    Thanks for the reply. I have gained access to root now via SSH and can now edit the php.ini file.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply for me.

    Jamie.
