httpd.include help

    ok im trying to get my server to allow uploads larger then 2mb. ive configured the php.ini file, but that i guess isnt enough.

    so basically i have to edit


    and add the lines:
    php_admin_value post_max_size 60M
    php_admin_value upload_max_filesize 60M

    but i dont want to do this for every domain i create, does anyone know where i can add the 2 lines of code so i dont have to do it to each account?

    If you want it to be server wide, change the following values in /etc/php.ini

    upload_max_filesize = 2M ; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
    max_execution_time = 30 ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
    memory_limit = 32M
    post_max_size = 8M ; Maximum size of POST data that PHP will accept. Too large causes errors

    If you are using a PHP upload script, then you need to increase the max_execution_time

    ive done that. but i still have a problem uploading large files. Thats when i realized that i need to add it to the domain httpd.include

    when i add the 2 lines of code to the httpd.include it works

    Interesting. If you put it into the global /etc/php.ini file and then restart apache, it should take effect for all domains, without having to necessarily put it into the domain specific httpd.include file.

    Oh, wait! When you edited the php.ini file, you didn't put the 'php_admin_value' part right? In the php.ini file, you only need the 'variable name = value' part.

    The 'php_admin_value' portion is only needed when you put things in httpd.conf/include, vhost.conf/vhost_ssl.conf/ and .htaccess files...

    correct. But now im noticing that when i add a new domain. it resets all of the httpd.include to the default setting. So the 2 variables that i added are now missing.

    so im still open to suggestions.

    Editing php.ini is enough, guaranteed. Just change the default relevant lines.

    Seriously i tried that and its not working.

    ive even crossed checked it with phpinfo.php on 2 accounts.

    account 1 has the fix in the httpd.index where the upload_max_filesize (local value) = 60mb and master = 2mb

    on account 2 i created a new domain and checked that the upload_max_filesize (local value) = 2mb and master value = 2 mb

    Then of course the other problem is making sure the httpd.index isn't over written when changes are made to the account.

    so my guess is to change the master value but, where is it?

    httpd.include files will be overwritten by Plesk whenever you make changes to domains in the control panel. You are supposed to put your custom settings into the domain's vhost.conf or vhost_ssl.conf files.

    The master or global values are in the /etc/php.ini file. Always restart Apache after making changes.

    If you used a Windows based editor to change the /etc/php.ini file and then re-uploaded it, you will have to run the following commands:

    cd /etc
    dos2unix php.ini
    service httpd restart

    This will strip the Windows CR's (^M) from the file. When editing Linux files, it is best to use a Linux compatible editor.

    Linux does not like having ^M characters in it's files. This is a very common problem with newbies to Linux.

    I'm not going to argue, I believe you have tried modifying the /etc/php.ini file (which is the global changes file). For whatever reason, it's not working for you.

    So your alternative is to create (or edit existing) the following files:

    You can create both, or just one or the other depending on if you need the same options for SSL and non-SSL sites. These files will not be overwritten by Plesk upon making domain changes.

    You can create a skeleton file and use it so that all newly created domains will also have these vhost/vhost_ssl conf files upon creation. The file will look the same, but replace 'yourdomain.org' with '@domain_name@' (double check the docs, I think this was the right tag)

    thank you fro your help BTW. Where are the skeleton files located?
  12. jamesyeeoc

    jamesyeeoc Guest

    The pre-defined ones which Plesk uses are located at:

    /home/httpd/vhosts/.skel/0/httpdocs (non-SSL) and
    /home/httpd/vhosts/.skel/0/httpsdocs (SSL)

    Normally you would create your own (read the docs/admin manual), tar/zip them up and use the control panel to 'upload' them, which would store them in a new numbered folder under the .skel directory. But I suppose you could just modify what they have there already...
