It’s possible that even if you’ve correctly added the phprc file, you may not notice its customizations resolving online. You may need to kill off all running PHP processes to ensure your new settings take effect.
Update your phprc file via SSH
- Log into your server via SSH.
- Once you log in, run the following command based on your version of PHP to kill off all running PHP processes:
For PHP 5.6:
[server]$ killall -9 php56.cgi
For PHP 7.0:
[server]$ killall -9 php70.cgi
For PHP 7.1:
[server]$ killall -9 php71.cgi
Killing off your PHP processes in this way updates your phprc file.

- This will update your phprc file within 10 minutes.
