I want to increase the PHP upload limit for my site (www.fotobucks.com) and I have found a tutorial on wiki dreamhost (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/PHP.ini). Here I want to ask, what are the risk of modification if modification failed? Will it cost data lost?
I am new to this and it also is my first time doing it. I tried to do the modification using putty.exe. After I run the putty.exe, I keyed in 'fotobucks.com' at the host name field and set to port 80. When I clicked on open button, putty open a new window with black color in it. The problem is that I cannot type and do anything with that window. What should I do in order to proceed?
From what I read from the tutorial (although I am not fully understand it), here I want to ask:
1. Is it possible to do the modification by uploading all those files needed without using putty.exe?
2. Where and how can I get the dreamhost original php.ini? So that later I can change the setting to increase the upload limit.
I will be very appreciate if you can provide detail steps by steps in the way to do the modification. Thanks.
