PHP Configuration Editor (WHM)

You can edit the general server PHP configuration in two possible ways.

Use PHP Configuration Editor menu

  1. A preferable and safe way is to use the WHM > PHP Configuration Editor menu

  1. Basic Mode allows editing only commonly changed parameters, so if you want to change some specific settings, switch to Advanced Mode instead

Once you are done with the changes, click Save. You will then be redirected to the page where you can check the new global php.ini which is created as a result of your changes: 

Alternatively, you can edit the php.ini file directly via SSH as a root user.

The global php.ini file is located in the /usr/local/lib/ folder. When connected via SSH run:

nano /usr/local/lib/php.ini


nano /usr/local/lib/php.ini

Once you made all the changes, save the file and restart the web server by running: 

/etc/init.d/httpd restart
