php.exe is in the \xampp\php
folder but if you have Hide extensions for known files types
ticked in the Folder Options
under the View tab in the Windows Control Panel then you will not see the exe file extension part - best solution is to un-tick this option then search again and whilst you are at there un-tick the setting Do not show hidden files and folders
In the php.ini file found in the \xampp\apache\bin folder find this section
- Code: Select all
zend_extension_ts = "C:\xampp\php\zendOptimizer\lib\ZendExtensionManager.dll"
zend_extension_manager.optimizer_ts = "C:\xampp\php\zendOptimizer\lib\Optimizer"
zend_optimizer.enable_loader = 0
; Local Variables:
; tab-width: 4
Change the line:zend_optimizer.enable_loader = 0
tozend_optimizer.enable_loader = 1
Save the file and restart Apache, but first make a Copy of php.ini
file so if that fails to work or Apache won't start after editing then simply revert to your saved copy.
