    9  * Create a new directory. You can use any name or location of the directory, however, we recommend using: include/php5. You should already have an include directory - at the same level as your web directory.
    10 
    11  * Create a file in that directory called php.ini (it must be called php.ini). In that file, only include the directives that you want to change. For example, if you want to increase the upload file limit size, you may want to add:

    35 suPHP_ConfigPath /home/members/<member-name>/sites/<domain-name>/include/php5
    36 }}}
    37   * If using fcgid, modify your suexec wrapper script in  /home/members/<member-name>/sites/<domain-name>/bin/php-cgi, adding a -c option, so it reads:
    38 {{{
    39 /usr/bin/php-cgi -c /home/members/<member-name>/sites/<domain-name>/include/php5
    40 }}}
    41 
    42  Note: Do not include the name of the php.ini file, just the path to the directory where it is located.
     30 * Once you have created this file you may need to reload your web settings to force the change to take affect. You can do that by logging into the [https://members.mayfirst.org/cp Members control panel], choosing Web Configuration, click edit next to your web configuration, and then submit (without making changes).
