Topic : Can’t access/fix the php.ini file in my WordPress Installation

Posted By: stevenshaw on April 9, 2019, 11:43 am
So I have a WordPress site installed on a LiteSpeed v7.2 Server (used cPanel through WHM), I need to raise my max upload size to install a theme I purchased but my php.ini file is not to be found. I ran a function, and it said my php.ini is at “/opt/cpanel/ea-php70/root/etc/php.ini” but I can’t even find the opt folder in root. I also don’t have the option to use MultiPHP ini editor in either CPanel or WHM (not sure why). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Not really related to virtualizor, you should contact cPanel support or use the cPanel community forum.
anyway, Just a few thoughts about that:
  1. make sure you enabled MultiPHP in your plans features
  2. make sure you are really logging in as root to access the /opt/[...] folder (from your description it sounds like you are logging in as cpanel user which may be caged or jailshelled.)

f your changes to php.ini aren't taking, there are a few things to consider.

What settings are you trying to change?

What PHP handler is in use? Cgi, fcgid, suphp, fpm, lsapi, DSO... This might require root access to confirm, but knowing what the "Server API" says in a phpinfo page would potentially help.

Some handlers allow ini changes, some require in .user.ini, DSO requires the change to be in .htaccess

The ability for users to even have user level inis can be disabled by root as well.

I recommend contacting your provider, as that may be the quickest way to get this figured out. If you're able to answer some of the above let me know.

Are you doing this through the file manager or ssh? If cpanel allows you to send commands to the server you can try 'which php > /home/temp.txt ' and navigate to the temp.txt file within the gui. (This is assuming you have access to the home folder - try 'which php > /home/$USER/temp.txt' otherwise)

Search for hidden files in Cpanel. This will help.--
