Thoughts on “How to Use the MultiPHP INI Editor in WHM

  • Your instructions are lacking for a VPS account. I had to go into my AMP panel and select Root WHM, then click on “Classic” next to View in the upper right. There is not an option for Basic Mode. From there, I was able to access the Software / MultiPHP INI Editor.

  • i have a vps-1000 acct. there is not a software or multiphp icon in WHM. there is a multiphp in cpanel. did it get moved to cpanel and this article is out of date?
