Differences from Platform.sh Professional

When using Platform.sh Enterprise, a few configuration options and tools function differently from Platform.sh Professional, aka the Development Environment.


Platform.sh Enterprise comes with pdo, apcu, curl, gd, imagick, ldap, mcrypt, mysqli, redis, soap, and opcache extensions enabled by default.

In addition, we can enable enchant, gearman, geoip, gmp, http, pgsql, pinba, pspell, recode, tidy, xdebug, oci8 (PHP5.6 only), or any extension with a pre-existing package in the Debian Apt repository if desired. Please request such extensions via a ticket.

Custom php.ini files are not supported on Platform.sh Enterprise. However, all php options that can be changed at runtime are still available. For example the memory limit can be changed using ini_set('memory_limit','1024M');

PHP options that can we can change via support ticket include: max_execution_time, max_input_time, max_input_vars, memory_limit, post_max_size, request_order, upload_max_filesize.


Platform.sh runs a second PHP-FPM process on all Enterprise clusters that has Xdebug enabled, but is only used if a request includes the appropriate Xdebug header. That means it's safe to have XDebug "always on", as it will be ignored on most requests.

To obtain the key you will need to file a ticket to have our support team provide it for you. Staging and Production have separate keys. Set that key in the Xdebug helper for your browser, and then whenever you have Xdebug enabled the request will use the alternate development PHP-FPM process with Xdebug.

Configuration & change management

Some configuration parameters for Enterprise clusters are not able to be managed via the YAML configuration files, and for those parameters you will need to open a support ticket to have the change applied. Further, the .platform/routes.yaml and .platform/services.yaml files do not automatically apply. Any existing service upgrades or new service additions will require a support ticket.


  • Cron commands
  • Worker instances
  • Service versions and configuration (everything in .platform/services.yaml)
  • Route, domain, and redirect configuration (everything in .platform/routes.yaml)
  • Application container version
  • Additional PHP extensions
  • Web server configuration (the web.locations section of .platform.app.yaml)


Cron tasks may run up to once per minute. (They are limited to once every 5 minutes on Platform.sh Professional.)

Cron tasks are always interpreted in UTC time.


Logs are available on the Enterprise Cluster at a different path than on Platform.sh Professional. Specifically, the can be found in:


This folder contains the application, cron, error and deployment logs.
