Where to find PHP.ini file?
Trying to install "Zend" on my 1&1 Linux server...

Hey guys,

I'm trying to install "Zend Optimizer" for PHP 4.x

I have a linux server with 1and1.com, and this is what their FAQ says to do:

1. Download the Zend Optimizer from [link] (for Linux glibc 2.1)

2. Unzip the files locally on your computer. (tar -xvzf "the tar file")

3. Go to the folder where the Zend Optimizer has been unpacked. Go to "data" directory. Here you can see various folders named according to PHP versions, e.g.
4_4_1_comp. Go the the directory of your choice. The important file is "ZendOptimizer.so"

5. Upload this file into a directory of your choice within your webspace.

6. Change the php.ini file to include the following text:



I don't know how to change - or even FIND - the "php.ini" file.

I don't even know what it is.

Where do you think it would be?

Thanks in advance,

it should be in your ' /public_html/ ' directory (or equivalent on your syst).
See if this helps you
[php.net ]

That's what I would've thought too.

It's not, though.

I have no idea how to access this...

You could try
locate php.ini from the command line or use the find command.

The following command will output the path to the php.ini file being used:

# php -i grep php.ini

(make sure to fix the pipe symbol in the code above. WW breaks those just to make our lives more...interesting.)
