ProcessMaker uses the configuration file env.ini for global settings that aren't available in the Admin panel.
Editing the env.ini File
Use a plain text editor to edit the configuration file located at:
- In Linux/UNIX:
- In Windows:
The default content in the env.ini file is the following:
Most of the settings can be enabled by setting them to 1 and disabled by setting them to 0. Settings which are strings should be enclosed in double quotation marks. Lines beginning with ";" (semicolons) are treated as comments and are ignored. Remove the semicolon to uncomment the setting.
default_lang = "LANG"
default_lang = "en"
Sets the default language of ProcessMaker at the login screen. When the web browser is directed to
http://IP-ADDRESS, it will automatically be redirected to
http://IP-ADDRESS/sysworkflow/LANG/SKIN/login/login. If not set, then the default language is
default_skin = "SKIN"
Sets the default skin of ProcessMaker at the login screen. When the web browser is directed to
http://IP-ADDRESS, it will automatically be redirected to
http://IP-ADDRESS/sysworkflow/LANG/SKIN/login/login. If not set, then the default skin is
debug = 0|1
1to log PHP debugging information when running ProcessMaker. Default is
0. MySQL error messages generated in triggers will be written to the
@@__ERROR__system variable, which can be viewed when Debug Mode is enabled. In addition, PHP errors and warnings will be appended to the file:
It is available to be viewed from the web browser at the address:
debug_sql = 0|1
1to log all SQL queries to the wf_<WORKSPACE> database in MySQL and view SQL error messages in the
__ERROR__system variable in the Debugger. Default is
0. For more information, see the MySQL Logging section.
debug_calendar = 0|1
Set to 1 to log information about calendars. Default is
wsdl_cache = 0|1
0to disable the caching of WSDL (Web Services Description Language) function calls. The default is 1, so WSDL function calls are cached for up to 24 hours, which increases the reliability (especially if there are connection problems), but is a problem if immediate execution for debugging is necessary.
memory_limit = "XM"
Set the maximum amount of memory available for each login session in ProcessMaker. Use "M" for megabytes, "K" for kilobytes and "G" for gigabytes. It is not recommended to set this value to less than "100M", which is the default. If generating large Output Documents, it may be necessary to increase this value.
system_utc_time_zone = 0|1
Set to 1 to enable the multi time zone. Default is
For best practices regarding using this parameter, see Time Zone best practices.
time_zone = "zone"
Set the time zone of the ProcessMaker server. This setting determines the time zone used for all timestamps in ProcessMaker, such as the starting and ending time for cases. By default, the time zone is set to "America/New_York". A list of available timezones can be found at: http://php.net/manual/en/timezones.php
session_block = 0|1
Set to 1 to block the use of multiple browser instances of ProcessMaker. Default is
0. For more details, go to blocking multiple browser instances.
enable_blacklist = 0|1
Set to 1 to activate the Plugin/Trigger Code Security Scanner feature. For more information go here.
mobileNotifications = true|false
Set to false to deactivate notifications in ProcessMaker Mobile.
mobileNotifications = false;By default, mobile notifications are enabled. If this setting is not found in the env.ini file, the default value is "true".
Input Document Download Restriction
As of ProcessMaker 3.1.3 and on, the disable_download_documents_session_validation flag has been implemented to prevent the download of input documents from unauthorized users. If the disable_download_documents_session_validation flag is set to "0" or is not included in the env.ini file, users will be restricted from downloading input documents. Therefore, if the user is not the one who uploaded the documents, he/she will need an Input Document process permission to download input documents.
This restriction affects:
- Input Document direct links.
- Input Documents set as steps in tasks.
- Documents uploaded using the Multiple File Uploader control.
- Documents uploaded using the File control.
Remember that this restriction is enabled by default. If the user is not allowed to download the file, a "403 Access denied" error message will be displayed:
If this setting is not enabled and the user doesn't have an open login session, then clicking on a link to download an Input or Output Document file will redirect to the ProcessMaker login screen. After login, the web browser will be redirected to the URL to download the file.
This setting is often enabled when needing to include links to files in emails and Output Documents or when accessing ProcessMaker files remotely via REST or web services. However, keep in mind that enabling this setting is a security hole, since it allows files to be downloaded using their file IDs and version numbers without verifying that the downloader is a valid ProcessMaker user and has permissions to access the file. If needing to guarantee that the files saved in ProcessMaker can only be accessed by authorized users, then do NOT enable this setting.
If the debug_sql option is set to 1 (or debug is set to 1), then every SQL query to the wf_<WORKSPACE> database (which is named wf_workflow by default) will be written in the following log file:
Each line in the log file records SQL actions in the following format:
For example, here is the shared/log/propel.log file for the admin user's login from the IP address 192.168.0.168:

Logging will noticeably slow down ProcessMaker's performance, so it is not suggested to use this option except for debugging. The log file is not automatically deleted, so it will continue to append new information until the file system runs out of space. If SQL logging is enabled for long periods of time, it is a good idea to periodically delete the log file so it doesn't occupy too much hard drive space.
Note that the processing time is in seconds and milliseconds, so a time of 1.309 means 1 second and 309 milliseconds.
Blocking Multiple Browser instances
Available Version: 220.127.116.11 on.
Set the setting
session_block to 1 in the env.ini file to disallow the use of multiple browser instances of ProcessMaker. If this setting is not found in the env.ini file, the default value is 0.
This restriction affects the following tabs: Home, Designer, Dashboards, KPIs, Admin and any of the options inside them. Whenever trying to open multiple instances, the following warning page will display:
For the restriction to take effect, it is strongly recommended to log out of ProcessMaker and clear the cache of the browser.
