How to Edit PHP.INI on iPage Web Hosting

By Quinten Plummer

Hypertext Pre-processor (PHP) is a Web development language used to create simple programs, or "scripts," for implementation into Web pages. PHP scripts can be used to generate content from user input or to manage uploads and downloads between users and a site's servers. The PHP.INI file contains a lists of values called "directives," which can be altered to dictate the action of your PHP script.

Step 1

Log in into your iPage account. Click on the "Scripting and Add-Ons" hyperlink in your iPage control panel, and then click on the "CGI and Scripted Language Support" link.

Step 2

Click on the "PHP Scripting" hyperlink in the CGI and Scripted Language Support menu. Set your PHP.INI file's version type. Select either "PHP4" or "PHP5" from the menu box in beneath the "Select Default PHP Version" heading. Click "Set."

Step 3

Edit the values next to each directive you'd like to alter in the PHP.INI file. For example, you'd set your maximum post data and upload size by editing the values next to the "post_max_size=" and "upload_max_filesize=" field.

Step 4

Click on the "Save" button to store your changes to the PHP.INI file.
