Custom PHP settings file

For any given application you may edit ~/.php/php.ini.

~/.php/php.ini is read by PHP every time PHP is run (a PHP script is accessed on the Web). We use CGI with a standalone PHP for running PHP scripts, so there is no need to restart Apache to activate new settings.

Another important note is that if your application is running under FastCGI (our servers are prepared to run in this mode to speed-up Drupal and other applications significantly) then you need too 'killall fastcgi' each time you update any ~/.php/*.ini files.
