# Magento2 : Installation error of always_populate_raw_post_data

I am trying to install Magento 2 and I have php version 5.6 in my system. When I click on Start Readiness Check , it is displaying error of PHP Settings Check *. I uncommented always_populate_raw_post_data to -1 and restart my apache also but still I am getting same error.

Can anyone help me in this Urgently.

• open the proper php.ini file which you can see after running phpinfo(), uncomment the line always_populate_raw_post_data. Then remove cache from var/cache and then again run readiness check. – Kingshuk Deb Apr 11 '17 at 11:35
• @KingshukDeb Yes i am doing in same way but still this error exists. – BornCoder Apr 11 '17 at 11:41

Create info.php file with following content.

<?php
phpinfo();
?>


Run that file and check there Loaded Configuration Files. Now edit that php.ini file to set always_populate_raw_post_data value to given value and restart apache.

• yes i checked from phpinfo() only and it return /etc/php/5.6/apache2/php.ini  but still not working – BornCoder Apr 11 '17 at 11:17

• Okay. Did you try after clearing browser cache or in private window ? – Kishan Patadia Apr 11 '17 at 11:20

I tried all solution related to always_populate_raw_post_data but it didn't help me so in the last I skipped this validation. I removed disabled tag from the element using Inspect Element , So i was able to proceed further.

Thanks
