Why isn't my custom php.ini working?

Back to Help Main Page

There are a few common reasons why custom php.ini files won't work.
  • Check the file name
  • Often if you're saving it in Windows - for example with Notepad - the file may have been accidentally named "php.ini.txt". Please ensure this isn't the case.

  • Is the file in the script directory?
  • Make sure the php.ini wasn't placed in a subfolder, as it will only take affect for that folder and subfolders.
