Customer Service > Knowledgebase > Advanced > Make Custom PHP Changes Using .user.ini File
Please note:This would mean, for example, if you were to create the .user.ini within your public_html, the changes are applied to the software that is installed in that particular folder only. Any subsequent PHP installations such as WordPress in a public_html/blog/ folder, wouldn't be affected by said changes. In order to apply changes to subsequent sub folders within a directory, a separate .user.ini is necessary for each directory.
And that's it! You've now created your .user.ini file and all of your custom PHP configuration changes added to the file will be used by your website!
This guide will show you how to increase the memory limit in PHP. While we don't have a technical limit on how high you can set the php memory limit, we highly recommend that you not exceed 128M.
If your .user.ini file is setup, all you need to do is open up your .user.ini file and add the following line:
memory_limit = 128M
The changes will take place immediately on your hosting account.
This guide will show you how to increase the max upload size in PHP (upload_max_filesize). By default it is 128MB on our shared/reseller/managed VPS but this can be increased as high as 2GB (max).
If your .user.ini file is setup, all you need to do is open up your .user.ini file via FTP or through the File Manager and add the following line:
upload_max_filesize = 1000M
The changes will take place immediately and can be set to whatever value you like. The web server does not need to be restarted.
Notice: If you will be uploading files via the "POST" method (most common), you will likely need to increase the "post_max_size" (default: 12M) configuration value in conjunction with the "upload_max_filesize" value, if you have not already done so. PHP recommends that you set the "post_max_size" value higher than the "upload_max_filesize" value. Experiment with increasing it slightly above "upload_max_filesize" and increase it further if your uploads are failing.
This guide will show you how to increase the max upload size in PHP (post_max_filesize). By default it is 128MB, but this can be increased as high as 2GB (max).To ensure the changes you've made have been properly configured, you'll need to increase the limit for this value to be higher than the upload_max_filesize.
This guide will show you how to increase the time out limit in PHP (max_execution_time).This value sets the maximum time, in seconds, the PHP script is allowed to run. By default the limit is 60 seconds and if a script runs longer than 60 seconds, it will be stopped and you encounter a PHP related error. For large or multiple files, or users on slower connections, the default of 60 seconds may be exceeded.
Note: This value can be set to whatever time limit you wish, however please note that our server is configured to kill off PHP connections that last longer then 30 minutes, so please keep that in mind when setting the limit.
This guide will show you how to increase the time out limit in PHP (max_input_time). This value sets the maximum time, in seconds, the script is allowed to receive input; this includes file uploads. For large or multiple files, or users on slower connections, the default of 60 seconds may be exceeded.
