My php.ini file is located in c:/software/PHP. If I DO NOT
specify PHPIniDir in Apache configuration file httpd.conf,
my php page, which simply has a phpInfo() function, is displayed correctly except that "Configuration File (php.ini) Path" points to C:/Windows. There is NO php.ini
file in C:/Windows.

If I DO NOT specify PHPIniDir but php.ini file IS in C:/Windows, I got a blank  page.

If I DO specify PHPIniDir as follows:
    PHPIniDir "C:/software/PHP"
Then I got a blank page -- unless php.ini file is NOT in

I do not have any other php.ini file elsewhere and this is
my first PHP installation ever on this machine.

Reproduce code:
httpd.conf -- only the lines I added

LoadModule php5_module c:/software/PHP/php5apache2_2.dll
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
#configure the path to php.ini
PHPIniDir "C:/software/PHP"


<title>Example #1 TDavid's Very First PHP Script ever!</title>
<? phpInfo();?>

Expected result:
PHP module details.

Actual result:
A blank page if PHPInitDir is configured correctly

An expected page with PHP module details if PHPInitDir is NOT configured and php.ini is NOT in C:/Windows

I copied php.ini-reocmmended and renamed it php.ini.
No modification is made to php.ini.
