Try making a php repl

@VulcanWM pfp?? You mean PHP right? I can't even find the php.ini in any directory...

VulcanWM (2906)

yeah literally click on the + button at the top right hand corner of your screen on repl.it, and then enter PHP for the language, and whatever name you want the repl to have, and then click create. Then you should be able to edit your PHP repl @codingjlu

@VulcanWM huh I've already done that. What I want is to edit the php.ini file. (Do you know what that is?)

VulcanWM (2906)

when i create a php repl the main file is only main.php or index.php depending on which type of the lang i'm making the repl @codingjlu

codingjlu (484)

@VulcanWM ok. Do you know what php.ini is?

codingjlu (484)

@VulcanWM oh ok. php.ini basically controls what you can do and allows you to use libraries or upload files or write to files and almost everything that PHP can do (it's mostly disabled)... and yes PHP is practically useless if you can't edit it (AND HTACCESS TOOOO)

VulcanWM (2906)

oh
i used php in this repl: https://replit.com/@VulcanWM/Forum
and it worked properly @codingjlu

codingjlu (484)

@VulcanWM to an extent. But when it comes to libraries, no. There are limitations.

VulcanWM (2906)

oh well i guess i cant help you, sorry for wasting your time @codingjlu

@VulcanWM no thanks for your effort.
