For all you do-it-yourselfers, here’s some good advice. On every website you create, make an info.php file. This will allow you to see your php memory for your server and will allow you to know which version of php you have. This tool is very useful when dealing with databases and/or eCommerce websites (when you’re in the development stage, you often need to increase php memory to upload and download large files).

How to:

  1. Download notepad++ or sublime text so you have something to write php with.
  2. Connect notepad++ with your server and open the root folder (normally the ‘public_html’ folder)
  3. Create the following short text using your notepad++ or sublime text
    <?php phpinfo(); ?>
  4. Save your file directly into your ‘public_html’ server folder as ‘info.php’
  5. Now when you type your domain + info.php you will get the following report (example: golocalexpert.com/info.php)
