Can I change my website’s PHP configuration?

Yes, you can.

This is available via the Manage Hosting > SeIect Package > PHP Configuration section of our control panel. Alternatively, you can create a custom file in your webspace with your desired PHP configuration. Please note that PHP will only read a custom configuration once every 5 minutes, so it can take a short time before the configuration changes appear on your website. This is always the case for our WordPress platform, as PHP-FPM caches the configuration quite aggresively. 

Control Panel

The PHP Configuration icon inside the control panel allows you to view and modify a list of the more common configuration options. You can also see our default values. To change one, simply enter your preferred value in the text input or make a radio selection and save.

File System (Advanced)

If you wish to set an option that is not listed in the control panel, you can just modify the ~/public_html/.user.ini file directly via File Manager. This file is parsed in addition to our standard PHP configuration by our web server, allowing you to change almost all the PHP settings for your website. If you've already made changes via the control panel you will see those in a .user.ini already. For example “max_input_time=500” would set max_input_time to 500 seconds.


The best way to confirm the settings are live is via phpinfo(). This allows you to see the current (local) and default (global) PHP configuration. To do this, use File Manager or an FTP client to create a file, for example “info.php”, with the following content:

phpinfo  ()  ;

? >

Then visit your website via and you'll see all PHP configuration settings. Please remember to remove the script when you've finished testing.
