- Now its time to adjust a few settings int the config.
Start with making a backup in case you mess something up and want to revert.
sudo cp /etc/php/7.0/fpm/php.ini /etc/php/7.0/fpm/php-backup.ini
Now its time to adjust a few settings in the config.
One is REALLY important that you configure for security reasons.
to do this open up the config with>
sudo nano /etc/php/7.0/fpm/php.ini
put in pathinfo
and you will be taken to the correct section
you will see this line commented out:
Uncomment and change that to:
then next thing we have to do is increasing the max file size to be upload.
Search again with ctrl+w: upload_max_filesize
change it to 64M instead of 2M which is recommended:
upload_max_filesize = 64M
one last thing that can be nice to edit while we are here is the timezone settings.
you can find the supported timezones here:
In my case it’s London both for my target audience and the server!
so I remove the ; to make the setting active and then I add Europe/London:
date.timezone = Europe/London
Afterwards I hit ctrl X and push Y to save the settings.
and then hit Enter when the filename comes up.
Restart php by writing:
sudo service php7.0-fpm restart
