This page allows you to customize the site.

These settings are cookie-based and will work on all official PHP.netmirror sites.

Preferred language

If you use a shortcut or search for a function, the language usedis determined by checking for the following settings. The list isin priority order, the first is the most important. Normally you don'tneed to set your preferred language, as your last seen language isalways remembered, and is a good estimate of your preferred languagemost of the time.

Your preferred language
Last seen languageen
Your Accept-Language browser settingNone
The mirror's default languageen

These settings are only overridden in case you have passed a languagesetting URL parameter or POST data to a page or you are viewing a manualpage in a particular language. In these cases, the explicit specificationoverrides the language selected from the above list.

The language setting is honored when you use aURL shortcut, when you starta function list search on a non-manual page, when you visitthe manual download orlanguage selection pages, etc.

Your country

The site and mirror sites try to detect your countryusing the DirectiIp-to-Country Database. This information is used to markthe events in your country specially and to offer close mirrorsites if possible on the download page and on the mirror listingpage.

We were unable to detect your country

URL search fallback

When you try to access a page via a URL shortcut, andthe site is unable to find that particular page, it falls backto a documentation search, or a function list lookup, depending onyour choice. The default is a function list lookup, as most ofthe URL shortcut users try to access function documentation pages.

Your setting: Function list search PHP Documentation search

Mirror site redirection

The site redirects users to mirror sites in several casesautomatically. It tries to find a close mirror first (a mirror in theuser's country), and if no such mirror is found, it selects one mirrorrandomly. Here you can set one preferred mirror site for yourself incase you are not satisfied with the automatic selection.

Please note that in case the site finds your preferred mirror site disabledfor some reason, it will fall back to the automatic selection procedure, butwill not alter your preferences, so next time when your selected server works,the redirections will lead you there.

User Group tips

We are experimenting with listing nearby user groups. This feature is highly experimentaland will very likely change a lot and be broken at times.
