How to access the php.ini from my CPanel?


I want to change the limit of the php POST array from 1000 to 6000 . Is there any way to do that ? i search about that and i found that i should change some variables in php.ini but the problem is that i did not find the directory of the file in my cpanel :

Your server's php.ini file is located at /usr/local/lib/php.ini.

This line is from the CPanel documentation but i could not find this directory in my cpanel even after i show the hidden files???? can anybody help me locating this file?

If you're on a shared hosting environment you won't have access to the php.ini to make these changes, if you need access, a virtual private server (VPS) or a dedicated server may be a better option if you're confident in managing it yourself.

Alternatively if you create a new file called .htaccess in your root of your web directory (Ensure it doesn't contain a .txt extension if using notepad to create the file) and copy something like this inside.

php_value settingToChange 6000

This will only work if your hosting provider let's you override the certain config value. Best to ask if it doesn't work after trying.
