The upload _max_size  file is the maximum size that a file can be when being uploaded to a site’s server.

The post_max_size is the limit of the entire body of the request, which could include multiple files .

The max_execution_time sets the maximum time in seconds a script is allowed to run before it is terminated by the parser.

The display_errors directive controls whether or not PHP displays error messages in users’ web browsers.

The date.timezone sets the timezone of the user’s location.

The error_reporting function sets the error_reporting directive at run-time. PHP has many levels of errors, using this function sets that level for the duration (run-time) of your script.
