help with xampp vista

Postby novo001 » 12. May 2012 18:51

Hi I recently knew about xampp and so far I'm still getting used to it since Im a newbie in web servers. I download 2 apache versions testing them what works on vista. I know xampp has a lot to choose from but I really want to get to know it all. I have downloaded
xampp 1.7.4
xampp 1.4.16

I compare their apache versions and folders because I'm getting errors. I know the obvious that xampp has newer upgrade but what I really want to know is..... upon opening

xampp 1.4.16 >apache folder>bin> php.ini
there is an php.ini file which is helpful in configuring settings for extensions which is also available in the PHP folder. but when I go to

xampp 1.7.4 >apache folder>bin
there is no php.ini inside the apache folder but is expected inside the PHP folder.

this is quite confusing for me. has the newer upgrade removed this file or does it have an equivalent file that has a different name on it. can you help shed light on my question.

I do appologize if this was posted on a wrong place and any suggestion or link will be most welcome!

Hi novo001,

Where tbe php.ini file is saved and searched is just a matter of configuration.
Which configuration file is loaded can be viewed with the phpinfo() function.
In XAMPP 1.7.4 the php.ini file is located in your \xampp\php\ folder.

best wishes,
Altrea
