according to the documentation, -->  "If you're using the Apache webserver, php.ini is first searched in the Apaches install directory, e.g. c:\program files\apache group\apache. This way you can have different php.ini files for different versions of Apache on the same machine." <--

I'm using Windows 2000 Server, with Apache 2.0. I run PHP as CGI. I already have a php.ini (let's name it ini-A) in C:\Winnt, and it works fine. I tried to add a php.ini to the program files/apache group/apache folder. in this ini file (ini-B) i changed a directive:
max execution time = 40
Within ini - A, this option has the value of 30.
Now I run a script, which contains a single line: phpinfo().
I looked for the "max execution time" value, and it was 30!!!!
I restarted the server, than the PC, but I got the same value....
within the general options from the returned phpinfo() table, the Configuration File (php.ini) Path has the value of "C:\WINNT\php.ini". 
Is it a bug, or I need to recompile my PHP? Or the above apache-ini file combination (to search first the apache install directory) works only on UNIX????
