My php.ini is not read. I have created one in the dir that phpinfo returns, but no joy.

Darren Kent, Adrian Kelland,


I had this same problem and the only way I found to solve it was to add 
a key in the registry under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SOFTWARE
Once you navigate to there, add a key named PHP and then add a key named 
"IniFilePath" (without the quotes) with a value equal to the directory 
where your php.ini file is located (i.e c:\php). I had installed php 20 
times before and never had this problem, but the last server I loaded it 
on would not load my php.ini file no matter where it was located. I had 
added the path to my php folder in the Path variable under Windows 
environment variables, and it still didn't work, but by adding that 
registry key it started working perfectly.  Hope this helps.
