4) Here you can locate the PHP directive you wish to amend and click the value. A dropdown menu or text input box will appear, allowing you to change the value as required. Check your script, plugin, or theme’s documentation (or an on-screen error message) to find the correct value.

5) Once you’ll do any change, please do a left-hand side click anywhere outside the dropdown or text input box. If the change was successful, you will see a green box with a message which will confirm that the change has been applied.
