I have PHP 5.3.5 installed on IIS 7 which I installed through WebPI (Web Platform Installer). I would like to have some global settings controlled on a site by site basis but I am unable to have the changes take. For example, by default register_globals = Off, but I want one site to be able to set register_globals = On.
I create a php.ini file with simply the following two lines, and save it to the root of the site:
[php] register_globals = On
When I run phpinfo() from another .php file to just inspect the settings, the global and local setting for register_globals shows up as Off. I expect the Global setting to be Off and the Local to be On. I also notice that" Additional .ini files parsed" = (none) which gives me the impression that it just simply isn't loading the php.ini file in the root of the site.
I have not changed any settings after I installed PHP through WebPI, so the global php.ini file is set to whatever the defaults are. Anyone have an idea what's going on or what to try next?
