Change PHP settings in my cPanel account

Updated Apr 8th, 2021 at 14:21 BST

If the default PHP settings for your hosting account don't meet the requirements of your website or application, follow these steps to change your PHP settings.

Look for that filename in the root directory of your account. That's the file you need to edit in the next step.

If you can't find that file in the root directory, use a text editor (for example, in cPanel use File Manager) to create the file and then save it in the root directory. Be sure you name the file as specified in our article.


  memory_limit = 128M 
  max_input_vars = 2000
  upload_max_filesize = 64M
  post_max_size = 64M
  max_execution_time = 120

Note: For specific info on these PHP settings, see the PHP documentation for core php.ini directives.

Take the necessary steps for the changes to take effect.

Use a phpinfo file to confirm the changes are complete.
