How to change the PHP runtime configuration from WHM?

The PHP is configured with the default values of runtime variables in our Shared Linux Hosting and on VPS/Dedicated servers as well. If you need to change the default values, you will need to modify the php.ini file in the server.


Linux VPS/Dedicated Server Hosting

You can modify the PHP runtime configuration by editing php.ini file from WHM.

  1. Login to WHM with root user.
  2. Go to Home » Service Configuration » PHP Configuration Editor.
  3. Select the Advanced Mode.

If you want to make changes for a single cPanel account, copy php.ini file under cpanel-user/public_html directory, make desired changes and save the php.ini file.

Linux Shared Hosting

We do have CloudLinux OS with LiteSpeed webserver on our SSD powered Linux Shared environment. In this environment, we do not offer a custom php.ini for the individual cPanel accounts. If you wish, you can change the PHP runtime configuration from the cPanel account. Here are the steps.

  1. Login to the cPanel.
  2. Click on Select PHP Version from Select Software and Services section.
