WP Twin Error Codes Solution
In order to get started, you need to login to your cPanel. If you forget the URL of your cPanel, just go to your email address where your account registered to that hosting account. For example: the login email address that you use to login to Hostgator, Namecheap, Godaddy, etc. You will receive an email containing your cPanel information from your hosting provider so everything can be tracked from there.
Go to your “File Manager” and check out your domain name directory. Once you are in, find “php.ini” file. The file doesn’t exist? No problem! Just create your own “php.ini” or download from these links(use the one provided by your hosting provider):
Before using any of the php.ini file, check what cPanel PHP version are you running. Usually, most hosting provider will display versions 5.2 to 5.6. This “php.ini” file should be placed in your main directory of your domain name. If your domain is example.com, please that file inside your example.com file directory. Now, let’s edit the “php.ini” file using either the “Code Editor” or “Edit” feature that can be found on almost all cPanel. Here we will use a shortcut to find the text “disable_functions =” (without quotes). Depending on your hosting provider, the settings might be different than shown below. Here it is by default set to :
disable_functions = “show_source, system, shell_exec, exec“.
Please remove system and exec word from that string or delete everything after the “=” (equal to) sign if you want but to fix the WP error, you just need to remove system and exec. Save the settings right away. Here is the part that are going to excites you whether this guide given will really solve it. Let’s test it out by going to : http://yourdomain.com/wptwin.php.
