phpsysinfo Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies
  4. phpsysinfo-3.3.2.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Typical installation

Just decompress and untar the source (which you should have done by now, if you're reading this...), into your webserver's document root.

There is a configuration file called If this a brand new installation, you should copy this file to phpsysinfo.ini and edit it.

  • make sure your php.ini file's include_path entry contains "."
  • make sure your php.ini has safe_mode set to 'off'.

phpSysInfo require php-xml extension.

Please keep in the mind that because phpSysInfo requires access to many files in /proc and other system binary you MUST DISABLE php's safe_mode. Please see the PHP documentation for information on how you can do this.

That's it. Restart your webserver (if you changed php.ini), and voila.

Docker container installation


  • phpSysInfo is not compatible with SELinux Systems
  • small bug under FreeBSD with memory reporting


Windows with IIS

On Windows systems we get our informations through the WMI interface. If you run phpSysInfo on the IIS webserver, phpSysInfo will not connect to the WMI interface for security reasons. At this point you MUST set an authentication mechanism for the directory in the IIS admin interface for the directory where phpSysInfo is installed. Then you will be asked for an user and a password when opening the page. At this point it is necessary to log in with an user that will be able to connect to the WMI interface. If you use the wrong user and/or password you might get an "ACCESS DENIED ERROR".


Make sure you set MBM5 Interval Logging to csv and to the data directory of phpSysInfo. The file must be called MBM5. Also make sure MBM5 doesn't add symbols to the values. This is a Quick MBM5 log parser, need more csv logs to make it better.


First make sure you've read this file completely, especially the "INSTALLATION AND CONFIGURATION" section. If it still doesn't work then you can:

Ask for help or submit a bug on Github (

!! If you have any problems, please set DEBUG to true in phpsysinfo.ini and include any error messages in your bug report / help request !!
