    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:


    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
