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.
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
If you are experiencing difficulties on an earlier version of CONTENTdm, your issue may have been fixed by a later release.
