PHP Server Side Scripting Forum

Hi all,

I'm having trouble configuring the php.ini file on my laptop. I'm using Windows XP Home Edition with Apache 1.3.26 and PHP 4.2.2.

Apache and PHP are both running fine. But with PHP I'm having trouble getting sessions to work and Global Variables. What I wanted to know is if anyone here can drop me a link to a page that will go into greater detail with describing the php.ini file. I've tried going to php.net and finding out a little more about it. But I'm having a little bit of trouble locating the page that goes into better description with the php.ini file. I apologize for any inconvenience, but any help is greatly appreciated.

what about something along these lines?


I just searched on php.net for php.ini

There's some quite good stuff in the PHP manual in windows help format, and if you haven't downloaded it I would.

Do you have track_vars and register_globals both enabled. I think I had to set a directory for sessions as well, but it's on my home system, and I can't find the details to do it at the moment.

Thank you all. I just got done downloading the php manual. So that I can search the whole manual. I appreciate it. Thanks for the link jatar_k

HEY! :)
I actually found a good page for the php.ini file. The link above does not describe much in what each individual part does. But this link gives you a description for everything in the php.ini file.

Thanks cicuitjump, that is the one I was originally looking for but couldn't seem to find.

bookmarked now.

no problem jatar_k. Thanks for your help.

>>> A little off topic <<<
You know, we don't have a forum that consentrates on Web Servers like Apache, IIS, and the whole lot of them. Is there a reason for not having a section dedicated to Servers?

OT Not sure they have enough topics about specifics. Such as this one is for PHP so its actually in the right forum. You could try dropping a msg in the community center as a suggestion for one.

If questions consist of configuring for a certain lang, as this does, they can go into the forum for that lang.

There is also website technology issues which helps to scoop up all the topics that aren't necessarily large enough on their own.

Also Linux, Unix, and *nix like Operating Systems.

They are all covered somewhere but we just don't have a topic specifically for webservers.

OK, these are the links I used to help me better understand how to configure my php.ini file. I'm posting the links I used so that someone else who is trying to do the same thing can have an esier time. :)

This link explains most of all the php.ini file.

This link explains the sessions section in the php.ini file.

If you want to turn off register_globals and not use HTTP_VARS, this link tells you about using predefined variables.

And if you will be installing on any MS Windows OS, this link can help.

Hope this can help someone else.
