If the web admin has installed several versions of PHP, it is possible to change the version of PHP in MultiPHP Manager. In the multiPHP INI editor, you can setup PHP variables:
|display_errors||This determines whether errors should be printed to the screen as part of the output or if they should be hidden from the user.||Disabled|
|max_execution_time||This sets the maximum time in seconds a script is allowed to run before it is terminated by the parser. This helps prevent poorly written scripts from tying up the server. The default setting is 90.|
|max_input_time||This sets the maximum time in seconds a script is allowed to parse input data, like POST, GET and file uploads.|
|max_input_vars||This sets the maximum number of input variables allowed per request and can be used to deter denial of service attacks involving hash collisions on the input variable names.|
|memory_limit||This sets the maximum amount of memory in bytes that a script is allowed to allocate. This helps prevent poorly written scripts for eating up all available memory on a server. Note that to have no memory limit, set this directive to -1.|
|post_max_size||Sets max size of post data allowed. This setting also affects file upload. To upload large files, this value must be larger than upload_max_filesize. Generally speaking, memory_limit should be larger than post_max_size.|
|session.gc_maxlifetime||This specifies the number of seconds after which data will be seen as “garbage” and potentially cleaned up.|
|session.save_path||session.save_path defines the argument which is passed to the save handler. If you choose the default files handler, this is the path where the files are created.|
|upload_max_filesize||The maximum size of an uploaded file.|
|zlib.output_compression||Whether to transparently compress pages. If this option is set to “On” in php.ini or the Apache configuration, pages are compressed if the browser sends an “Accept-Encoding: gzip” or “deflate” header.||Enabled|
