I configured PHP to look in /etc/php5/apache2 for the php.ini file. the output of phpinfo() says that the path was set correctly, but also says no configuration file was loaded. i changed the php.ini permissions to 777 temporarily to test that issue and permissions are not the issue. what else could the issue be?
When I compiled php, i did:
sudo ./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-mysql --enable-so --with-config-file-path=/etc/php5/apache2 --sysconfdir=/etc/php5 --with-config-file-scan-dir=/etc/php5/conf.d
Configuration File (php.ini) Path /etc/php5/apache2 Loaded Configuration File (none) Scan this dir for additional .ini files (none) Additional .ini files parsed (none)
Also php --ini says: Configuration File (php.ini) Path: /usr/local/lib Loaded Configuration File: /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini Scan for additional .ini files in: (none) Additional .ini files parsed: (none)
And if I put php.ini in /usr/local/lib, the configuration file loads fine (although the additional .ini files don't load). I am not sure why this is happening since I set the options when I compiled PHP.
