PHP Application Server Configuration

To perform the necessary configurations, press the Config button next to your application server. In the case you have several application servers you can configure them together or separately. To do this follow the steps:

1. Open the drop-down menu at the top of the configuration tab. It includes the list of all of the app servers in your environment.

multiple PHP nodes

2. Choose the one you need and make the configurations.

3. To apply the changes:

  • only for the chosen server click Save only for the current instance button from drop-down menu;
  • for all the servers click Save for all instances.

save for current all instances

Note: if you create/rename a file or folder in the Configuration manager, this will be applied only in the list of the chosen node. You can’t save this change for all of the app servers available in the environment. If you want to also create/rename the file or folder in the other servers you need to do this manually.

Below you can see the list of the configuration files available for editing in the PHP application servers:

CONF

  • Apache

For the Apache application server the main configuration file is the httpd.conf located in the conf folder. For example, by using it, you can perform the following actions:

httpd.conf configuration file

Note: In order to perform any custom configurations in the httpd.conf file, you need to remove the #Jelastic autoconfiguration mark string at the beginning of the file:

Jelastic autoconfiguration mark

The number of workers for processing PHP requests is increased automatically in an Apache server depending on the cloudlet amount you stated for it.

To check this, find and remember the MaxClients value in httpd.conf file.

MaxClients value before

After that, change the topology of your environment by increasing or decreasing the cloudlet limit for your server.

Return to the httpd.conf file - the number of MaxClients has increased/decreased.

MaxClients value after

Note: This functionality will be disabled if you remove the # Jelastic autoconfiguration mark string at the start of the httpd.conf file
  • NGINX

For performing necessary configurations for an NGINX-PHP server the nginx.conf file, located in conf folder, is used. Use it to set up the following configurations:
