Yes, i setup a phpinfo.php and the values displayed match exactly what’s in php.ini. BTW, the php.ini is at /etc/php.ini.

Thanks for the response. It is a custom built application, not OwnCloud or similar. Do not believe I’m using FCGI, have standard Digital Ocean’s standard CentOS setup, modified php.ini (and restarted apache) per above specs.

Hi @kencushman,

Are you using FCGI by any chance? And is it a custom built application, or something like OwnCloud?
