after httpd.worker , /etc/php.ini is not affecting

CAUTION: shipping php packages are not compiled thread safe and will abend with worker mpm.

If you do mpm on Red Hat you need to disable php support: rename /etc/httpd/conf.d/php.conf to

You have been warned.

I am using httpd.worker and believing its faster. But this dude said remove php.conf and i tried it. Got this error:

Starting httpd: Syntax error on line 1088 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf:
Invalid command 'php_value', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration

i check that like and line was:

php_value memory_limit 640M
php_value upload_max_filesize 20M
php_value post_max_size 40M

I removed those from virtualmin panel and removed php.conf .. But now i cant increase memory_limit or post_max_size etc.. I manually edit /etc/php.ini , for example i did memory_limit = 512M but in virtual server's phpinfo memory_limit says 128M Example:

How can i increase those limits? why /etc/php.ini is not working? Thanks for your time



Howdy -- it is indeed correct that mod_php is not thread safe. If you wish to use Apache's mpm_worker mode, you would need to disable mod_php.

You could then make changes to your php.ini file by editing the php.ini file in $HOME/etc/php.ini, for each domain on your system.

hmm.. I dont know systems and effects that much tbh. I was just trying some and thought Apache's mpm_worker looks faster.

Sorry if i understand wrong but.. there is no global php.ini that affects domains in this worker mode.. My only option is editing domain's php.ini file directly.. is it?

Well, think of the /etc/php.ini as mod_php's php.ini file. If you wish to use mod_php, that's how you would change those values.

The other available modes you can use -- PHP via CGI and PHP via FCGID, both have individual php.ini files.

If you aren't using mod_php, you would need to use PHP via CGI or FCGID.

The individual php.ini files are actually considered a feature -- it's a more secure design, and it allows users to make whatever changes they need to their own php.ini files.

However, if that's not what you want -- then you'd need to weigh whether the speed increase of using Apache's MPM worker is worth it to you :-)
