Customize PHP configuration

If you want to customize the settings of your PHP Installation you should never edit the php.ini file inside the PHP directory. This file will not survive updates.

Always create you own custom configuration files inside the configuration scan dir. The directory is located at ~/scoop/persist/php/cli/conf.d. You can create as many .ini files as you like.

Examples

Some basic settings like the timezone and limits (custom.ini)

date.timezone = Europe/Berlin
max_execution_time = 60
memory_limit = 256M
post_max_size = 128M
upload_max_filesize = 128M

Enabling debugging (debug.ini)

display_errors = On
display_startup_errors = On
error_reporting = E_ALL
html_errors = Off

Enabling PHP modules, those are the most commonly needed modules. Take a look inside the php.ini to know what is available (extensions.ini)

extension_dir=ext

extension=php_curl.dll
extension=php_fileinfo.dll
extension=php_gd2.dll
extension=php_gettext.dll
extension=php_intl.dll
extension=php_ldap.dll
extension=php_mbstring.dll
extension=php_exif.dll      ; Must be after mbstring as it depends on it
extension=php_mysqli.dll
extension=php_openssl.dll
extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll

extension=php_sqlite3.dll
extension=php_tidy.dll

TIP

You can use git to store your configurations.
