Step 2: Create the PHP Info File

  1. In the File Manager, navigate to the directory where you want to create the PHP info page. This is typically the "public_html" or "www" directory, which is the root directory of your website.

  2. Click on the "Create New File" button within the file manager.

  3. Enter a file name for the PHP info page. For example, you can name it phpinfo.php

  4. Click the "Create" or "Save" button to create the php file.

Step 3: Edit the PHP Info File

  1. After creating the phpinfo.php file, right click the file > "Edit" the file.

  2. Add the following PHP code to the phpinfo.php file and then save it:

Step 4: Access the PHP Info Page

  1. Open your web browser.

  2. Enter the URL of the PHP info page in the address bar. The URL should be something like, where "" is your actual domain name and "phpinfo.php" is the file name you created in Step 2

  3. The PHP info page will be displayed, showing detailed information about your PHP configuration, modules, environment, and more.

Step 5: Remove the PHP Info Page (Optional)

  1. For security reasons, it's a good practice to remove the PHP info page once you have gathered the necessary information.

  2. Go back to the File Manager, find the phpinfo.php file and delete it.
