Thanks for quick response. Just a couple of silly questions: - changed where? in php or apache? My host is running the "three week old" v 4.2.2 of php so I guess you mean apache?
- If I can in fact get them to change it in http.conf for my virtual host block then I will have these huge (!) settings for my whole site rather than just the necessary scripts. Is there any downside to this (other than misbehaved scripts being really misbehaved)?
