user.ini - Changing PHP settings and restarting PHP

You are able to make changes to some PHP settings via a .user.ini file. This file doesn't exist by default - you will need to create it within the html folder of the relevant site.

You can create this using the Onyx File Manager or by uploading a file using FTP.

  1. Create the file in your site's root folder: /www/html/
  2. Add your required PHP settings and click Save.
    Our suggested settings are:
max_execution_time = 900
max_input_time = 600
memory_limit = 2048M
max_input_vars = 8000
Note: This file cannot be blank. Saving this file without adding data will result in the file not being created.
  1. In order for your PHP settings to take effect you'll need to restart PHP within your account.
    Click on the Tools option on the left hand side.
  2. Click on Restart PHP

  1. You can ensure your changes have taken effect by creating a phpinfo file.

Standard PHP settings

Below, you can see the default PHP values. These values will be overridden by your .user.ini file.

max_input_vars = 1000
memory_limit = 256M
post_max_size = 100M
upload_max_filesize = 100M
