this is a feature I've put a lot of thought into and I really think webhosts specifically will benefit from this feature.

It's basically allowing certain ini directives to be set using php_admin_flag/value on a virtualhost basis.

The config options I think should be modified are these:


I don't know whats involved in changing these, but I would assume it's not a major change. I would love to see this in the forthcoming 4.3 release...

".htaccess also falls in the PERDIR class, and it's not a 
good idea to allow setting open_basedir and the other settings from this file especially for ISPs and stuff. --derick "

/me points to php_admin_flag and php_admin_value

I'm reclassifying this and changing to other bug we found
when digging into this mess.. :)

If you set some directive in httpd.conf with php_admin_value
it's not possible to change it anymore in .htaccess. This is okay and the correct behaviour. BUT it does not make PHP_INI_ALL settings not settable with ini_set() though.

To test this:


php_admin_value html_errors 0


php_value html_errors 1


/* Comment this line out to see the effect of .htaccess..*/
ini_set('html_errors', 1);
