PHP info doesn't reflect changes to php.ini

October 18, 2014 3.6k views

I’m trying to make a pretty simple change to allow larger uploads to the applications on my droplet. I jumped onto the command line and made the changes to the php.ini file

sudo vi /etc/php5/fpm/php.ini

Once I was done, I saved the changed then restarted nginx

sudo service nginx restart

When I check out my phpinfo() page on the server though, it still shows the old values for everything I changed. I opened the INI file through my FTP client and all the values I changed are in fact updated.

Anyone run into this before? Am I missing something?

You need to restart php5-fpm as well, since Nginx and it operates entirely separate.
