Recommend php.ini settings

Postby Pernod » Sun Aug 02, 2009 3:54 pm

In general most php.ini settings can be left with their default values.

You should ensure the following settings are as below:

short_open_tag = On
There is a single module (imdb parser) which has a short open tag in 1.22, fixed in latest development release. This requirement will be removed when 1.23 is released.

magic_quotes_gpc = Off
magic_quotes_runtime = Off

Magic quotes are deprecated from PHP 5.3.0 and removed from 6.0.0 so better get used to not using them.

variables_order = "EGPCS"
Required to enable detection of SwissMonitor service.

Required extensions:
extension=php_zip.dll (optional)

session.gc_maxlifetime = 86400
Large session timeout to avoid losing page history.
Players : Popcorn A-300 (unused) | Popcorn A-200 (dead) | Popcorn A-100 | Netgear EVA700 (stored)
Webserver : Simese v2.6.5 | Apache 2.2.21 | PHP v5.2.17 | MySQL v5.1.32

I've updated the short_open_tag and variables_order in my release php.ini. So this should change in the next release.
