Advice on PHP-FPM

Hi All,

I’m looking for some advice please.

I have a 3 or 4 websites on a server, default PHP version is 8.2, a few of them are running on 8.1.

We’re looking to setup a new website but one of the main plugins has some unique needs and requires us to modify the PHP defaults.

For Example:

post_max_size (8MB) The value should be greater than 100MB
upload_max_filesize (2MB) The value should be greater than 100MB
max_execution_time (30Second) The value should be greater than 600

Thing is, if I modify 8.2, 8.1 to 7.4 values also change, and I don’t feel comfortable with this effecting every single version of PHP installed on the server, or every single website.

I used to use Plesk before and we could modify single php values per account - I appreciate Hestia is not Plesk, but what’s the best way of only modifying the php values for one website / account on hestia?

Never really had to go this deep looking at php-fpm templates etc - so any advice, guidance would be appreciated.

post_max_size and upload_max_filesize 100mb is fine I think it is even the new “default” for new installations if I am not wrong …

max_execution_time 600 is very large…

New installs we use 60 sec and for normal use it is more then enough.
