phpinfo() shows no information

On one of my virtual servers, the following file returns a completely blank page:

<?php echo phpinfo();
?>

I've already checked the disable_functions line in my php.ini file. It is blank:

; This directive allows you to disable certain functions for security reasons.
; It receives a comma-delimited list of function names. This directive is
; *NOT* affected by whether Safe Mode is turned On or Off.
; http://php.net/disable-functions
disable_functions =

; This directive allows you to disable certain classes for security reasons.
; It receives a comma-delimited list of class names. This directive is
; *NOT* affected by whether Safe Mode is turned On or Off.
; http://php.net/disable-classes
disable_classes =

The site in question has no .htaccess file.

What do I need to look at to get phpinfo() available?

You don't need the 'echo'.  Just...
<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Open in new window


I don't remember who but one hosting company actually blocks phpinfo() "because it reveals too much information".

Looking at the spec I didn't think I needed the echo, but most examples have it.  At any rate, i get no information either way.

Now, I have my own virtual Ubuntu server at my hosting company.  If they did block it, I would be able to turn it back on, right?  This is obviously not something they can block with a firewall.

So ... where should I look to turn it back on?  Besides php.ini and .htaccess?

Please try this and let us know exactly what you get.

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors', TRUE);
echo 'PHPINFO';
echo '<br/>';
phpinfo();

Open in new window

And if you do not get the expected output, change hosting companies!

PHPINFO
Warning: phpinfo() has been disabled for security reasons in /var/www/html/snip/snip.com/info.php on line 6

So you're right, it's been turned off.

Ideas on where to turn it back on?

Do I need to check these other INI files too?

dwilson@williams2:~$ php --ini

I checked all the ini files listed.  Only php.ini had an entry for disable_functions and that entry is blank.

You will have to call your hosting company to answer that question.  I suspect you will get an unsatisfactory answer.  I would change companies if that is the case.  phpinfo() is the primary method to find out what is supposed to be working in PHP.  Disabling it is stupid.

Who in the world is your hosting company? I only ask so I can add them to the list of unacceptable hosting companies!

Good hosting companies, in my experience, include: ChiHost.com, LiquidWeb, BlueHost, DreamHost, HostGator, and everyone in the "Thanks to" left sidebar of this page: http://php.net/

I have root.

What can the hosting company do to disable it that I can't undo?

Everything I read says to change it in php.ini, but I'll need root.  It's not disabled in php.ini, and I HAVE root.

It's a small company that has always done well for me in the past.  If I need to get them involved to fix this ... what's the fix they can do that I (having root) can't?

They can compile their own version of PHP which quite a few hosting companies do.  When you start with the source code, you can change anything you want.

I only have a little exp wid seting up virtual servers, and I do not have the time to learn all about set up and detailed configuration of Apache, MySQL, PHP and the other native software of a server, but you really should (like most know-nuttin server setting bone heads (me)) use a virtual where the host techs do all that for you as you ask them to (general things like enable phpinfo, but not time comsuming custom configurations, unless it's part of your contract), and there are hosts that specialize in complicated virtual configs that they do all the work on, ,  and take responsibility for maintaining (not cheap).
But you really should get on the phone and talk to your host techs and find out what you have signed up for as far as what they do to configure (or help you) to get your server functioning, you may need to move into another plan if they do nothing now, or start reading for a couple of weeks about server set up and configuration. also you might ask EE to get this question in a Server category here.

There is also a settings.php in some that can disable the info thing, but I guess it mainly in the php.ini

Check to see if your version of PHP is built via a package:
which php

Open in new window

(use "ls" on that file until you find where the real file, not a symlink)
dpkg -S /usr/bin/php5

Open in new window

Hopefully the last command will return something like:
php5-cli: /usr/bin/php5

Open in new window

If it returns an error, it was probably custom-built from source.  You can ask the admin why they've done this (or just why they'd disable phpinfo()), and maybe just remove it and install from a package.  You may want to consider how much you're paying as compared to how much time this problem has taken, and weight that against the time/cost involved in moving to a different hosting provider.

Here's what had me looking at the wrong php.ini file:

the correct file for apache is /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

command line php uses /etc/php5/cli/php.ini

The one that mattered disabled phpinfo().

Nobody hit the idea exactly that I was looking at the wrong INI file.  But I appreciate the helpful suggestions along the way.
