Webmin php.ini files for each virtual server are located in user’s etc directory. Path is in following format,

/home/AdminUser/etc/php7.0/php.ini

Change AdminUser to your domains admin user and open it with nano.

Hello, all

As per, jarland suggestion, you can create a PHP info file in order to check the current values and check which is the php.ini file in use. Create the following file in your public_hmtl folder of your site - phpinfo.php and put the following code inside it:

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

You can also use the following command in order to find the location of the php.ini file:

php -i | grep php.ini

The output will be:

Configuration File (php.ini) Path => /etc/php/7.2/cli
Loaded Configuration File => /etc/php/7.2/cli/php.ini

Then you can put the values and flags you want.

You also need to restart your web server (Apache/Nginx) in order the changes to take effect.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

Hello friend!

The best course of action may be to create a phpinfo.php file in the same directory as your website, load it in browser, and search the page for php.ini. That would tell you the path of the currently loaded php.ini file, and you could edit it there. This is the only code you need in the phpinfo.php file:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>
