    Default [HOW To] Edit the global php.ini file in Mac OSX

    This article assumes that you are running an Mac based operating system, and that you have a dedicated server or VPS and have root access.


    Connect to your host:

    Code:
    ssh your.hostname.com
    or
    Code:
    ssh 111.111.111.111
    Where 111.111.111.111 is your main server IP

    The system will ask you for a user and password. The username is "root" (no quotes1)

    The password is the root password. You will now be connected to your server.

    next type:

    Code:
    cd /usr/local/lib/
    Then:

    Code:
    cp php.ini php.iniBACKUP
    which makes a backup of the original file

    Next type:

    Code:
    pico php.ini
    You have now opened pico which is a Linux text editor.

    Now you can modify the variables that you need.

    When you are done press ctrl+x and when it asks if you want to save the modified buffer type "y" (no quotes needed) and press enter to save the new php.ini

    Then type:

    Code:
    service httpd restart
    This will load the new php configuration into Apache.

    Is this how I would fix the upload max files for uploading like videos? I have never messed with any of this stuff but I am trying to upload a video to try out the module that I installed. It says this
    Safe Mode Status: OFF
    Register Globals: OFF
    Server Uploads Status: ON
    Max Upload Size Permitted: 2M
    Max Post Size Permitted: 8M
    Max Time for running scripts: 30 sec
    I need to upload around 200MB I think LOL not sure just want to upload my music videos that I make

    thanks

    well, first you would want to make a phpinfo file and then view it in your browser so that you can see what directives, if any need to be changed from the default php configuration.

    Once you know if you need to set anything on or off, then the syntax for your php.ini would be like so:

    Code:
    safe_mode = Off
    register_globals = Off
    upload_max_filesize = 200M
    post_max_size = 200M
    max_execution_time = 900
    Safe Mode and Register Globals are already off. The 2 below that are for your 200Meg uploads. And the last one is set to 900 which is 15 minutes. (60 seconds * 15)

    Well I only know that I have resellers account. But the videos upload and stuff when I am using Dophin on another site. So I am not sure if I have to edit anything or maybe I do not sure. I am really very new to all of this module stuff. And really new to the reseller thing. The only reason that I got it was to have separate cpanel for my domains. Someone told me that would be best cause things get messed up the other way.

    I don't know I've been trying this for hours and I am not getting anything uploaded. Somewhere it said that I needed to make a embedding code? Doe that have something to do with this not working I am wondering. I probably should be posting on XOOPS about this I suppose.

    Thanks

    If you make a php.ini file and put it in the directory that the script runs in, with the following lines, you should be able to upload larger files, provided the upload takes less than 15 minutes:

    safe_mode = Off
    register_globals = Off
    upload_max_filesize = 200M
    post_max_size = 200M
    max_execution_time = 900

    OK I made a php.ini like ya said. I might have put it in the wrong area not sure. I put it in the public_html but that didn't work. It says this but I don't have a etc one can I just create a folder?

    The default value of php.ini. When
    memory_limit = 8M (default)
    post_max_size = 8M (default)
    upload_max_filesize =2M (default)
    If you need to allow larger uploads, please modify these values in your php.ini file (normally located in /etc/php.ini).

    Default

    /etc assumes that you have a dedicated server and have root access.

    In your case, the php.ini goes in the directory that the script runs in. You can see if your overrides are working by looking at php info.

    Code:
     
    <?
    phpinfo();
    ?>
