Subject Re: [users@httpd] Not Sure If This Is An Appache Problem Or a PHP problem
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2008 04:37:22 GMT
Ok time to start banging my head against the wall.  So I turned off the user account controls
and tried everything again...still didnt work.  when i run the test page im still getting
Configuration File (php.ini) Path  C:\Windows  
Loaded Configuration File  (none)  

I really dont know what other problem we could have that windows is not able to read the php.ini
file.  Now the only other thing i can think of is when i first opened that file to edit it
i had to pick the program that i wanted to use to open it and of course that was notepad,
i think thats the right one i should have chosen.  Can anyone think of anything else?   
I also did try pointing the PHPIniDir to c:/Apache2.2/conf and of course that didnt work either.

Did you STILL fail to turn off UAC?!?  Listen, as long as it's on, you can
only PRETEND to put files in c:\windows.

Look, create another user account on the machine.  After you *THINK* you
did something, log in as the other user.  Look for the same file you thought
you edited.  See if your change is there.

Yes, UAC is a PITA.

You are better off using the PHPIniDir directive to set the path of the
php.ini file to your apache2.2 conf\ directory.
