There are 3 php.ini in the system(debian based):

/etc/php5/cli (for command line interface)
/etc/php5/cgi (for cgi/fcgi)
/etc/php5/apache2 (for mod_php)

I don't understand why you need to move. You must configure each php.ini properly with your needs.

For example in my server ispconfig run in mod_php and websites in fastcgi. Also don't forget that you can use custom php.ini for every website.

hi and thanks for your answer
It's complicated for me to explain. because i don't really speak english.
I'm on debian 6 too and isp 3.
normally when you have deb + ispconfig and when you check your phpinfo.php you have 1 line :
Loaded Configuration File : /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini
Now by me it's :
Loaded Configuration File : /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
And i want to change that and have /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini

The raison is : when you modify your php.ini in the apache2 directory you have mistake with ispconfig. that .ini must be original.

Now if i want to access at ispconfig whitout problem i send the original php.ini with sftp and i restart my apache. I make my modification in ispconfig and when i have finished with ispconfig i resend my php.ini (modified).

Now i want only change that line on my php.ini.

I hope you have understand what i explain.

Thanks for all.

Hi Stef,

That's overkill. ispconfig must run without problems in debian. Try to find the reason, check your error.log (all erros will be there) and paste it here.

Did you install ispconfig with tutorial ?

When i change my php.ini ispconfig work perfectly.
