LINUX SERVER PHP configurations.

Yesterday, i finished the whole process to built up a completely new LAMP stacks. After that, i am going to import my test server to my production server.

During this transition, i have to upload my sql database dump from my production server 1 to this new server.

Unfortunately, there is a problem for myself that i left off from yesterday’s process. I did not modify any of the PHP configuration. Therefore, i wasn’t able to upload the sql file which size 14MB.  By default,t he upload single file is only 2MB.

So, today i am going to dig into this php configuration file and do some modifications.

First, i would go to change the file php.ini. You can run following command to edit the php.ini file. (Sometime it’s stored in /etc/php.ini, but it also could be in /etc/php.d/cgi/php.ini or /usr/local/etc/php.ini)

vi /etc/php.ini

Then use the vi ‘s search function to search for below syntax and modify to suit your needs. (type in /strings to find your keyword and use keybaord i to get into insert mode to modify it one by one.)

memory_limit = 32M
upload_max_filesize = 10M
post_max_size = 20M

here is the search function: i type in /post_max and then hit enter

vi-search

Then, the cursor will jump to the result it found

search-result

After all the modification has been completed, you can do following command to restart the apache

sudo service httpd restart
