PHP.ini doesn't load

PHP.ini doesn't load on Apache localhost

Can anything be more frustrating than configuring Apache/PHP/MySQL on your PC? I don't think so!

The whole sleepless night later I finally managed to make Apache work with some matching version of PHP. Problem, however, remains that I cannot possibly make Apache load the php.ini file. It works with some default configuration and just refuses to load the .ini file no matter what voodoo I do with the httpd config or anything else. It's not the "PHPIniDir" problem as everyone suggests on the forums, because if I screw with the PHPIniDir directive in httpd config then Apache stops working at all. Meaning that it reads the directive, and, presumably, considers it right. Regardless of whether I point it to c:windows or c:php5 it appreciates it and doesn't load ini file anyway. Please help, anyone...!

Are you trying to create your own server or just doing testing? If the latter, you'd be much better off running WAMP (or some variant).

Testing, yes. But the software I downloaded is written so that it doesn't work with any WAMP or EasyPHP servers unless it's a 100% hosting server... I tried it on most of platforms. Well... I expect I could configure WAMP some needed way if I knew how, but I don't.
