How to customize Boonex Dolphin PHP configuration

In this tutorial I will show you how to customize Boonex Dolphin configuration.

Yes, this can be done by including a local one under your Dolphin installation directory.

First let’s get our local php.ini file ready. Ask your host to give you a copy of the server’s php.ini. This should be an easy task for them, as all they need to do is to make a copy to your home folder.

Once you have this, make your edits in this. For example:

max_execution_time = 3000;

max_input_time = 3000;

post_max_size = 200M;

upload_max_filesize = 300M;

Dolphin requires this not only to be present in the main Dolphin root folder. You need to be copy the php.ini to most of it’s sub-folders. But not all, as this could disrupt the proper functioning of Dolphin.

Copying to all sub-folders:

# cd ./installation_folder/
# find ./ -type d -exec cp php.ini {} \;

Now let’s remove this from some of these:

rm -rf ./flash/modules/*/skins/php.ini ./flash/modules/*/langs/php.ini ./modules/boonex/forum/install/langs/php.ini ./modules/boonex/forum/integrations/base/langs/php.ini

And you’re ready to roll.
