The MultiPHP INI Editor in cPanel is a powerful tool that allows you to manage your PHP configuration settings without the need to manually edit your php.ini file. This tutorial will guide you through the process of using this feature to adjust your PHP settings as needed.

The system saves changes to the php.ini file, the user.ini file, and your .htaccess file.

Accessing the MultiPHP INI Editor

Firstly, you will need to access the MultiPHP INI Editor. Here are the steps to do this:

  1. Log in to your cPanel account.
  2. Scroll down to the Software section and click on the MultiPHP INI Editor icon.

Using the MultiPHP INI Editor

Once you are in the MultiPHP INI Editor, you can start making changes to your PHP settings. Here's how:

  1. Select the domain you want to edit from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
  2. You will now see a list of PHP directives. Make your changes to the desired directives.
  3. Click the Apply button to save your changes.

Understanding PHP directives

Each directive affects a specific aspect of your PHP environment. For example, the 'upload_max_filesize' directive determines the maximum size of a file that can be uploaded.

Basic Mode

For beginners, the Basic Mode is recommended. In this mode, you can modify the most commonly adjusted PHP directives, such as memory limit and max execution time, using simple dropdown menus.

Editor Mode

If you're more experienced, you may prefer to use the Editor Mode. This mode displays the php.ini file for the selected PHP version and allows you to edit it directly.

Making changes to your PHP settings

Be careful when modifying your PHP settings as incorrect settings may cause your website to become unresponsive or exhibit unexpected behavior. Always double-check your changes and consult the PHP documentation if you are unsure about a particular directive.
