I made some changes to /etc/php/7.0/cli/php.ini on my laravel homestead machine. But I can't get it to load the new settings. Tried restarting nginx, restart php7, etc...
The file /etc/php/7.0/cli/php.ini is for PHP-running trough commandline.
There should a php.ini in /etc/php/7.0/fpm with the settings for PHP-FPM. After you've edited that, restart php-fpm with this command
service php7.0-fpm restart
