I have a few versions of php on my server, and each version has the following modes; apache2, cgi, cli, fpm, which in turn each have their own php.ini. So that's 6 x 4 = 24 php.ini files for my present install. Running md5sum on them, a lot (but not all) are different. So, I'm thinking of making one php.ini file and using it for all the php versions and operating modes. Is this a BAD idea? If it's bad, which versions/modes need special care when setting up? Is there a way of doing diffs across multiple files combinations so one can quickly see the differences? How are the rest of you folks handling this combinatory explosion?
