When I set default-character-set=win1250 in my.ini, php-cli says:

File 'c:\mysql\\share\charsets\?.conf' not found (Errcode: 2)
Character set '#26' is not a compiled character set and is not specified in the 'c:\mysql\\share\charsets\Index' file

The problem is, that php-cli ignores character-sets-dir= in my.ini and uses its own hard-coded path c:\mysql\. If I move the share\charsets\ directory into c:\mysql\, the problem is still here because there are two backslashes in path, where php-cli tries to find it.

When I hexa edited php4ts.dll and change c:/mysql/ to c:/mysql3 and move share\charsets\ directory there, everything is working.

Solution:
1. Change the default path for finding charsets from "c:/mysql/" to "c:/mysql"
2. If possible, read character-sets-dir= from C:\Windows\my.ini.

The bug reappears in PHP 4.3.4 Win32 ISAPI Module for apache.

It's OK in 4.3.4. my.ini is still ignored, but there are no double backslash.

My APACHE error log is full of this:
File 'c:\mysql\share\charsets\?.conf' not found (Errcode: 2)
Character set '#26' is not a compiled character set and is not specified in the 'c:\mysql\share\charsets\Index' file

The mysql is not located in the default directory.
I am using the my.cnf to configure the mysql deamon.

[mysqld]
port=3306
skip-locking
set-variable = key_buffer=16M
set-variable = lower_case_table_names=0
set-variable = max_allowed_packet=1M
set-variable = thread_stack=128K
set-variable = flush_time=1800
default-character-set=win1250
skip-innodb
basedir = C:/WWW/MySQL/

my.ini is still ignored - it will not be fixed. You must have charsets directory in c:\mysql\share\charsets.
