As documented in install.txt:

SetEnv PHPRC C:/php

to httpd.conf 


setting PHPRC as a system variable 

both have no affect in changing the location of php.ini.  For example, if php.ini resides in C:/php, using either of the above methods does not work, and default values are loaded instead. 

php.ini _is_ however recognized if it is placed in %systemroot% or the web server root (i.e. c:\apache).

If you're using Apache2 you can always add this to your httpd.conf:

PHPINIDir "conf"

"The Apache 2.0 PHP module supports a new configuration directive that allows an admin to override the php.ini search path. For example, place your php.ini file in Apache's ServerRoot/conf directory and add this to your httpd.conf file:
    PHPINIDir "conf"

Also, you can specify it in registry..also mentioned in install.txt. 

Check also that php.ini is readable by the user as what your webserver runs as.

In any case, PHPRC works fine here, so no bug here either.

Indeed I am using Apache 1.3.33, in which the below description applies.  I suppose the feature only works with Apache2?  Thanks,
