cPanel host, re-reading ini files
My site is remotely hosted through cPanel. It is a shared resources configuration and I don't have root privilege. I do have considerable rights but not all the way down to the level of Apache administration (for instance.)
I'm testing a music hosting package, but for the context of this question I want to remain more general. I'll post the name of it at the top of the details.
I'm new at PHP but I have a few years experience as a sysadmin for other systems. That said the PHP ini files used in the music system appear to be rather straightforward and well commented.
I'd like to un-comment a line to see the affect. (no problem, I've got the right and understand the responsibility)
How do I force the system to re-read an ini to apply the change?
(Or is it necessary?)
The music server is named "Ampache" - with an "m"
cPanel provides these PHP tools:
(I understand they don't necessarily apply to PHP administration)
PHP Pear Packages
MultiPHP INI Editor
a GUI file manager with an editor
Other PHP titled commands available:
(among a large assortment of Linux commands)
(directory links to multiple versions of PHP available)
