how does one find the php.ini file on Linux box?

I want to edit the php.ini file. How do I find it? I tried phpinfo()
and saw a bunch of path info, but none to php.ini.

It's always been in the phpinfo() output in any version I remember.

Hi Lawrence,

Try this at the command line:

prompt:~$ find / -name php.ini

This command will search your entire file system for a file named php.ini,
and when it find's it, it will give you the full path to it.

It should be in the very first table, labeled "Configurat ion File (php.ini)
Path". There can also be some other entries: "Scan this dir for additional
..ini files" and "additional .ini files parsed".

If it's an RPM release, just type:

rpm -ql | grep php.ini

The below code does what I need it to do, but I thought that using something like ext = os.path.splitext(fname) and then searching ext for '.mp3' would be a much more accurate approach to solving this problem. Could someone demonstrate how to search ext for a specific string? This script works great for deleting illegal music on user machines ;) Thanks!!!

Hi, I have a problem with my linux apache+php installation. I don't know much about linux and it appears a real nightmare for me every time I need to change anything.
