Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: PHP info.
The phpinfo display contains information about the configuration of your PHP installation. This is useful for checking:
- that your PHP installation meets Moodle's system requirements.
- the values that are currently applied to your server's PHP install, e.g. File upload limits
- that you have installed the required modules needed for Moodle to work, e.g. the LDAP module for LDAP authentication.

To view the phpinfo information:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>
- Save this file as info.php
- Upload this file into the root web accessible folder on your server.
- Now open this file in your browser. For example http://<server-name>/info.php.
