So I'm sure this has been up here a lot, but I was hoping for some help. I've reviewed the wiki page on how to setup your own .ini file to change the .ini settings.
I have very limited knowledge of UNIX, and so I'm kind of scared of installing my own PHP setup then losing complete access to PHP on my website(s).
For the commands, if I don't have an indepth knowledge of UNIX, am I likely to screw up my website? I have basic knowledge as well as a good understanding of general coding. Also, the commands listed on the wiki are all done through SSH?
I would appreciate any help. I am desperately trying to shut off magic_quotes and to increase the file upload size.
