The following php script does not work....

  // print the value of my INFORMIXSERVER variable
  echo getenv("INFORMIXSERVER");
  $conn_id = ifx_connect ("db@ibm65");

it prints:
Warning: ifx_connect: E [SQLSTATE=IX 000 SQLCODE=-25560] in test.php on line 14

25560 means that INFORMIXSERVER is not set in the env.
Which is crazy because I getenv it and echo it.

But the following works:
  $conn_id = ifx_connect ("db@ibm65");

So it seems that the environment variable INFORMIXSERVER is not being read correctly.

Besides having INFORMIXSERVER set in my env, I also have set the /usr/local/lib/php.ini ifx.default_host=ibm65.  Yet neither work.

I have to putenv() the value explicitly.

Also of note, 

I have register_global = On.

phpinfo() shows:
register_global = On and On
ifx.default_host = ibm65

Yet it still requires me to do this:
