General

You can set custom php.ini configuration options for each PHP version separately. See the directory structure for PHP configuration directories inside ./cfg/ directory:

host> ls -l path/to/devilbox/cfg/ | grep 'php-ini'

Customization is achieved by placing a file into cfg/php-ini-X.X/ (where X.X stands for your PHP version). The file must end by .ini in order to be sourced by the PHP-FPM server.

Each of the PHP ini configuration directories already contains two example files: devilbox-php.ini-default and devilbox-php.ini-xdebug.

devilbox-php.ini-default

This file holds the exact settings that are currently in place by each PHP-FPM container. Copy it (do not simply rename it) to a different file ending by .ini and start adjusting it.

devilbox-php.ini-xdebug

This file holds some sane example configuration to get you started with Xdebug. Copy it (do not simply rename it) to a different file ending by .ini and start adjusting it.

Important

For Xdebug to work, there are other changes requires as well: Configure PHP Xdebug

How to apply the settings

In order for the changes to be applied, you will have to restart the Devilbox.

Examples

The following examples shows you how to change the memory_limit of PHP 7.1 to 4096 MB.

# Navigate to the Devilbox directory
host> cd path/to/devilbox

# Navigate to PHP 7.1 config directory
host> cd cfg/php-ini-7.1

# Create new ini file
host> touch memory_limit.ini

Now add the following content to the file:

memory_limit.ini
[PHP]
memory_limit = 4096M

# Navigate to the Devilbox directory
host> cd path/to/devilbox

# Navigate to PHP 5.6 config directory
host> cd cfg/php-ini-5.6

# Create new ini file
host> touch timeouts.ini

Now add the following content to the file:

timeouts.ini
[PHP]
max_execution_time = 180
