There may be times when you might want to view your account’s php
settings. In order to do that you will have to create a phpinfo page.
PHPInfo pages help in verifying what php modules are installed/loading

  • Locate your new phpinfo file, right click it and select either “Edit”
    or “Code Edit” from the menu. If a “Text Editor” prompt appears, in the
