php.ini

If you have subfolders on your website & you want a different php.ini to be in effect for scripts running in that subfolder, can you just put a version of php.ini in the specific subfolder & that will override the one at the root?

Specifically, if you have www.xyz.com/test, can you put a php.ini in test  & it's settings will override those at the root?

If not, how can that effect be accomplished?

Thanks

The answer is probably not.  The hosts that do allow you to use your own 'php.ini' have always specified that it be in the root of your hosting, at least the ones that I have seen.  You can put some directives in your .htaccess file in a subdirectory and you can put some in an include file in those subdirectories.

The problem is that 'php.ini' has to be read before your PHP code is read because it sets up the conditions under which PHP runs.  Some directives have to be set before PHP runs and can't be modified while it is running.

In a standard server configuration there is a global php.ini (for instance in /etc/php/). Loaded configuration file is visible when calling <?php phpinfo(); ?> script.

You can do overrides in a couple of ways - depends on server and configuration. Two potential ways may be:

1. .htaccess file (if Apache's config allows “AllowOverride Options” or “AllowOverride All” )
Just place a .htaccess file in the subdirectory and add options:
php_flag <boolean-flag-name> on|off
php_value <flag-name> <flag-value>
For example:
php_value upload_max_filesize 50M

2. Directly in your php scripts via ini_set
<?php
ini_set('upload_max_filesize', '50M');
?>
