I have a Windows 2008 Web edition server setup with IIS7.5 and PHP 5.4.6 FastCGI installed. I would like to make use of the user INI files as described here:

I have PHP installed at C:\PHP and the main ini file is at C:\PHP\php.ini. The websites are in C:\HostingSpaces\WebsiteName\wwwroot, where I create the .user.ini file in the wwwroot directory.

The user file is never loaded, what could the problem be? user_ini.filename is set correctly to .user.ini as phpinfo shows.

Updating PHP from 5.4.6 to 5.4.8 has fixed the issue, the .user.ini files are now picked up.

Create .user.ini in C:\HostingSpaces\WebsiteName\ directory not in wwwroot directory
