A PHP initialization file is not always immediately recognized by shared hosting accounts' servers. Here are tips for making sure it does take effect.
- Make sure you're using the correct type of PHP initialization file.
- Understand your PHP initialization file's refresh rate:
|Only updates when a new PHP process is created, e.g. when a new visitor comes to your site. However, refreshing your own site you recently visited does not generate a new PHP process. |
|By default, updates every 5 minutes |
- Try getting the server to recognize the updated file. Which process you use depends on your hosting account's operating system (more info).
