Tweaking PHP settings with a .user.ini file

Tasha ShermerIn a hosting environment such as ours, modifying the main php.ini file isn’t a viable option for changing default PHP settings. Don’t despair, however. In their infinite wisdom and incredible foresight, the developers of PHP built in a way for you to change certain directives locally using a file named .user.ini. Here, I’ll show you how to create your own.

Deploying to Everleap Using Git

Michael OssouEarly last month, Michael Phillips wrote about our Git support. As you may know, you have a Git repository included for free with your Everleap account. So if you’re not using TFS for your site, I would urge you to at least use Git. If you’re not familiar with Git, take a look at this video to help you get started.

Does Technical Support Still Matter?

Michael PhillipsA while back I read an interesting blog post by the Product Manager for Microsoft TFS about their TFS Azure support. The thing that really caught my attention was this:

“I was having a conversation with my team about our need to have a better support path from our web site. We need a “contact us” capability that enables you to send an electronic message that will get attention…”

Sounds like he’s talking about, you know, a helpdesk.

Are you a ‘Cloud Skeptic’? We invite you to try Everleap for free.

Michael PhillipsIn a DiscountASP.NET support ticket the other day someone said to me, “I don’t want to talk cloud. That is such a bogus term and concept.” I was telling him about Everleap, since it would have been a good solution for a problem he was having, but I understand why he reacted like that.

The term “cloud” has been misused and abused to the point where it has become meaningless to a lot of people. Often when we talk to people about the modern hosting platform we’re running here and say to them, “You might want to try our Everleap Cloud Servers,” they just roll their eyes and sigh.
