  • php.ini in etc folder

    I see a number of my domains have a php.ini file in my etc folder i.e. etc/php.ini which also appears to have overwritten my own public_html/php.ini file (or also 'added').

    Why have these been added - it certainly wasn't put there by me?

    (Also, why has this only been done on some of my domains and not all?)

    Reason for asking this: Some of these sites are now broken and as this is the only thing I can see that has changed I suspect this is the problem. Error logs are also mounting massively. Some sites do still work though??

    For example:

    /home/mylogin/etc/php.ini

    php.ini file starts like this below....

    [PHP]

    ;;;;;;;;;;;
    ; WARNING ;
    ;;;;;;;;;;;
    ; This is the default settings file for new PHP installations.
    ; By default, PHP installs itself with a configuration suitable for
    ; development purposes, and *NOT* for production purposes.
    ; For several security-oriented considerations that should be taken
    ; before going online with your site, please consult php.ini-recommended
    ; and http://php.net/manual/en/security.php.


    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    ; About this file ;
    ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    ; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior. In order for PHP to
    ; read it, it must be named 'php.ini'. PHP looks for it in the current
    ; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
    ; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).
    ; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory. The
    ; path in which the php.ini file is looked for can be overridden using
    ; the -c argument in command line mode.

    .... and so on


    (One further question: It says "...Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory" - surely my cPanel hosting is Linux not Windows? This possibly just shows my lack of knowledge though! )

      Have you hit up live chat ? You will get a faster response for urgent enquireies like that there.

        Yes, complete denial of anything having been done, but I appreciate the limitations of live chat so thought I'd ask here to see if a more comprehensive answer would be forthcoming.

          You'll definitely get a comprehensive answer here but may be a little bit.

          I am sure an Admin will see it if not Ben pretty much lives here and will let them know.

              Would rather the answer was shown here for everyone to see and understand. There may be many with this problem (whether they know it or not at present) and this thread could really help them as well.

              Thanks.

                    Dear David.

                    The php.ini files located in the /home/cpuser/etc/ folder is a part of security tweak that we have had implemented on
                    all the Linux shared servers. We have already notified all the customers about this tweak so please refer an email with the subject as "Apache/PHP Security Update - Hosting Server `hostname`".

                    We are sorry for the inconvenience and disruption you have faced due to security settings but it was extremely
                    important as there were some serious vulnerabilities found on the server. We have been able to find alternative for sites which are stopped working due to this change so please open a support ticket or contact us on live chat. We will get your sites fixed as soon as possible.
                    Regards,

                      Thanks Kieran, that was really helpful.

                      I didn't appreciate the real effect the email was alluding to but have now re-read it and have been able to track down some issues.

                      Will add more to this reply when I get a little more time but in the meantime I just wanted to say 'thanks'.
