I have found a couple of threads on internal case issues and reports regarding php.ini (or .user.ini and .htaccess) to override default PHP settings per domain. I have even opened up a case, and closed it thinking the issue was resolved. With an fpm enabled account, the php.ini overrides only apply to that directory. Subdirectories below are requiring that we copy the .user.ini to each directory where we have an application below the root public_html. Is this the way its supposed to work? If so, are there any alternatives to fpm for performance that work where we can just set a single php configuration file at the root and have it apply to all sub-directories?
