When running PHP 4.0.5 in CGI on Windows 2000 I've noticed that setting the php.ini's include_path to "include_path = .;C:\Inetpub\Include" does not work.  The include
path only results in the first path being searched.  Everything after the first ";" is ignored.

Also, when I run the phpinfo() function it shows that the include_path is simply "." instead of showing both items in the include path. 

Can someone correct this and e-mail me the fix?  Thanks!

Put your php.ini into place where it actually gets read.
And ask further support questions on some appropriate mailing list. This is not a bug.

The php.ini file is in my WINDOWS subdirectory and is indeed being picked up by PHP.

If I change the include_path to C:\Inetpub\Include;. only the first part of the path is searched (C:\Inetpub\Include)the current directory is no longer be searched.

When I execute phpinfo() it only show the include_path as simply "C:\Inetpub\Include" instead of showing both items in the include path.

This is a bug.

You almost got me fooled. :)
This indeed is NOT bug. But more a misunderstanding.
; in php.ini is considered as comment. Anything after
that is not taken into account. So this won't work:


but this will


I added examples to the php.ini-dist now so we don't 
get more bug reports about this anymore.

Thanks!  Much appreciated.  Putting quotes around it does indeed fix the problem!
