PHP ini_set() in .htaccess
How to...

 7:02 am on Mar 25, 2003 (gmt 0)

How do I change PHP settings in the .htaccess file? It says on the ini_set function help page that I can do that (with some settings) instead of directly in the script, but it doesn't explain how. Would appreciate any help...

See How to change configuration settings [php.net].

php_flag session.use_cookies off
php_flag track_vars off
php_value arg_separator.input ";&"

In your .htaccess files you can only change PHP_INI_ALL and PHP_INI_PERDIR type directives. For a list of those directives have a look at the table within the ini_set [php.net] documentation.

Thank you Andreas!

Yes, I already took a look at the ini_set() page... This will be really useful ;)

You´re welcome, DrDoc.

It is really useful indeed since it safes you from having to use ini_set [php.net] in all your scripts.

Using arg_separator.input to set the arguments separator to ; will save you from any hassle with non-escaped ampersands in query strings. So it should be present in all your root level .htaccess files or httpd.conf files.

So, I'd use something like

php_flag session.save_handler user

right? ... or is it php_value?
