Changing PHP.ini settings

Herd gives you easy access to the PHP configuration files on your machine.

Each installed PHP version has its own php.ini file located at ~/Library/Application Support/Herd/config/php/<version>/php.ini. You can edit this file to change the PHP settings for the specified PHP versions.

The changes will be immediately available to the PHP CLI version, but you will need to restart all Herd services to apply the changes to HTTP requests via nginx.

You can restart all services by clicking "Stop all" and then "Start all" in the Herd dropdown menu in the menu bar – it just takes 1-2 seconds.

Alternatively, you can use the herd restart command in the terminal.
