Sample global_php.ini with applied disable_functions directive

; This file provides global settings for php.ini of all alt-php packages
; The structure of this file:
; option = value
; To confirm changes (not affecting “date.timezone” and “error_log” options) please run:
; /usr/sbin/cagefsctl –setup-cl-selector
; To confirm changes (including “date.timezone” and “error_log” options) please run:
; /usr/bin/selectorctl –apply-global-php-ini
; or
; /usr/sbin/cagefsctl –apply-global-php-ini
; If you don’t want to change error_log, but want to change date.timezone, you can execute
; selectorctl –apply-global-php-ini date.timezone
; Similarly, command
; selectorctl –apply-global-php-ini error_log
; applies error_log and all other options specified in /etc/cl.selector/global_php.ini file, except date.timezone.
; So, you can specify 0, 1 or 2 parameters from the list: error_log, date.timezone
; using –apply-global-php-ini without arguments applies all global php options including two above
; Example:
; selectorctl –apply-global-php-ini error_log
; selectorctl –apply-global-php-ini date.timezone
; selectorctl –apply-global-php-ini date.timezone error_log
; The latter command has the same effect as /usr/bin/selectorctl –apply-global-php-ini
