All shared, cloud web hosting, semi-dedicated, and reseller plans include the ability to edit your PHP options through cPanel using the Select PHP Version interface. Common options include:

  • Max execution time (max_execution)time): How long your PHP script can run before it times out and the process is killed
  • Max input vars (max_input_vars): Number of variables in a GET/POST request that will be accepted
  • Memory limit (memory_limit): The maximum amount of memory (RAM) a single PHP script/process can use
  • Upload max filesize (upload_max_filesize): Sets the limit for how large an uploaded/attached file may be when processed through a PHP script

To adjust your PHP Options:

  1. Login to cPanel for your hosting account and use the search to find the "Select PHP Version" interface:

  2. From the Select PHP Version interface select the "Options" menu:

  3. Use the provided forms and dropdown menus to adjust your PHP options as required by your scripts/software:
