I have just installed PostgreSQL 8.1, Apache 2.2, and PHP 5.2 on my computer. When loading a page that called pg_connect() I got an error that pg_connect() could not be found.

phpinfo() showed that "Configuration File (php.ini) Path" was "C:\WINDOWS".

The PHP installer did not put a php.ini file in C:\WINDOWS. Instead it left php.ini in my installation folder "C:\Program Files\PHP". Copying php.ini to C:\WINDOWS resolved the problem.

this is not a bug. We do not recommend you to put the php.ini file in the windows dir, but left it in the instalation dir.
If the env var PHPRC is set, PHP will be able to pick your php.ini (and I think the instaler does that - but you need to restart the pc).

You're right - the installer has created the environment variable PHPRC. But it didn't reboot the computer or suggest that I do so. Would it be possible to add that step to the installation?
