How to find the php ini file from the command line

0 votes

I need to enable pdo_mysql in my EasyPhp environment, so I went to php.ini file and uncommented the following line:

extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll

Unfortunately I still have the same problem. I'm using the CLI so I suppose I need to locate the php.ini file used by the CLI. How can I find it?

Hello @kartik,

You can get a full phpinfo() using :

php -i 

And, in there, there is the php.ini file used :

$ php -i | grep 'Configuration File'
Configuration File (php.ini) Path => /etc
Loaded Configuration File => /etc/php.ini

On Windows use find instead:

php -i|find/i"configuration file"

Hope this is helpfull!!

Thank You!!
