Subject Re: [users@httpd] Not Sure If This Is An Appache Problem Or a PHP problem

Having copies of php.ini laying around that are not being used is not  
your problem.

Not sure what produced the output in your first email. Create a  
phpinfo.php file and put it somewhere apache has access to it.
Make the contents of phpinfo.php the following:
<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Load the phpinfo.php served by apache in a browser.

Look for the path to php.ini in the screen that renders. If the path  
is a path that has a php.ini try changing some configuration variable  
in that php.ini, restart apache and reload phpinfo.php.

If you see the new value for your configuration variable you probably  
don't have php compiled properly with the mysqli extension.

If you don't see the new value for your variable you might have a  
windows file permission problem or something preventing the reading of  
your file.

I don't use Windows so this is the closest I can come to help.
