When using 5.3.1 for Windows (VC6 non thread safe) build, the php.ini settings for "display_errors=Off" is ignored and E_NOTICE messages display in the web page results from PHP.

This can also be seen via "phpinfo()" which shows the setting "On".

If I run "php -i " from the command window, the setting correctly shows "Off".

Windows Server 2008
IIS 7.0
PHP 5.3.1 (binary .msi install from

Reproduce code:
<? phpinfo();?>

Expected result:
display_errors Off

Actual result:
display_errors On

Are you sure the right php.ini is loaded?

Am I sure?  You did see the reference to "phpinfo()" - right?

It shows the one and only "php.ini" file that exists on this server and instance and it's the one I edited.

Quite likely some installation issue on windows, works fine on *nix.

It may be a Windows installation issue - but the installation was via the install version from the download link.  So, it's built into it.

Restart your web-server and check phpinfo() again.
