What are the server PHP recommendations or requirements?
Last Updated 5 years ago
Below are some recommendations for the PHP configuration on your web server. Keep in mind not all websites are identical, so different needs call for different requirements. The first 3 on the list are considered required. The 4th option is to be adjusted based on your needs. If you are not sure on this we recommend that you review the errors in your server logs with your web host or server administrator and then make adjustments as necessary.
- Use a currently supported version of PHP: http://php.net/supported-versions.php
- Make sure you have the Multibyte String Functions module (mbstring) compiled and activated in PHP: http://php.net/manual/en/book.mbstring.php
- Make sure you have the iconv module compiled and activated in PHP: http://php.net/manual/en/book.iconv.php
- Other settings you may want to increase and adjust in your php.ini based on your websites server resource requirements (keep in mind these options below are not recommendations as each website's requirements are different):
upload_max_filesize = 1024M
post_max_size = 2048M
memory_limit = 2048M
file_uploads = On
max_execution_time = 600
