Set custom php.ini in FastCGI - How to set it up

This article covers how to set custom php.ini in FastCGI. Basically, FastCGI is the best to manage resources for a high traffic site in shared servers.

To create Custom php.ini with PHP5 under FastCGI:

1. First open .htaccess for the account in question and add the following lines to the bottom of the file:

AddHandler php5-fastcgi .php

Action php5-fastcgi /cgi-bin/php5.fcgi

2. Next, you'll need to source your main server php.ini which is located in /usr/local/lib/. Also note that it needs to have the correct ownership so we'll take care of that too:

cd /home/user/public_html/cgi-bin/

cp -a /usr/local/lib/php.ini .

chown user:user php.ini

3. Next we need to create the wrapper script. Create a file in your current directory (cgi-bin) called php5.fcgi as defined above and add the following:




exec /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/php5

4. Finally, make sure the ownership and permissions are correct on this file:

chown user:user php5.fcgi && chmod 0755 php5.fcgi
