For 2023 (and 2024 ...) - we are now fully retired from IT training.
We have made many, many friends over 25 years of teaching about Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, Java, C and C++ - and MySQL, Linux and Solaris/SunOS too. Our training notes are now very much out of date, but due to upward compatability most of our examples remain operational and even relevant ad you are welcome to make us if them "as seen" and at your own risk.

Lisa and I (Graham) now live in what was our training centre in Melksham - happy to meet with former delegates here - but do check ahead before coming round. We are far from inactive - rather, enjoying the times that we are retired but still healthy enough in mind and body to be active!

I am also active in many other area and still look after a lot of web sites - you can find an index ((here))
php.ini under Mac OS X

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 21 August 2004
When PHP starts up, it picks up initial values from a file called php.ini. Under Mac OS X, the file is not mandatory (afaik) ... but  if you do need one, place it (or look for it) under

Sample php.ini files come with the distibutions ... if you're setting one up from scratch and want to test out its presence, try adding / changing the line
        post_max_size = 2M
which controls the maximum amount of data a user cn submit via the post method, and look at the current setting via a php page including
        <?php phpinfo(); ?>
(remembering to restart or otherwise kick your web server once you've edited the config file!)
