PHP Installation: Required settings in php.ini (version 6)

Last review: March 24, 2012

Description: For the CONTENTdm 6 Server and Website to function correctly, certain settings are required in php.ini.

Resolution

CONTENTdm PHP files are dependent on settings in the php.ini file.

The following settings apply to both Windows/IIS and Linux/Apache configurations:

1. Turn off the "magic quotes" feature:

magic_quotes_gpc = Off

2. Enable short tags:

short_open_tag = On

3. Enable opening of remote URLs:

allow_url_fopen = On

4. Set a value for "date.timezone", e.g.:

date.timezone = America/Los_Angeles
