@bublible: I think I found a solution for you if you have not gotten it or if others need it.

It appears the php.ini file is over written by the default file php.ini in the settings folder of USB Webserver.

Simply make changes to the settings/php.ini file and save it.

@bublible: Cool.
Come to think of it, you can access all settings through their gui except the php one, so I'm gonna mail a feature request for this ;)

@dany: I already did and he replay that we need to edit php.ini in SETTINGS directory, not the one in PHP directory - and it worked! So all is normal now... ;-)

@bublible: can't reproduce so I dunno what's going on, can't help you out... But if you suspect a bug, contact the author and ask him:


bublible 2011-12-12 12:28 even further classify my problem: it initializes php.ini to its initial state not when one quits Usbwebserver, but WHEN IT STARTS UP - then I always need to: 1. stop Apache in Usbwebserver, 2. go to php.ini and make some changes to it, 3. start up Apache in Usbwebserver again :-(((

I downloaded Usbwebserver 8.2 and I noticed probably a bug: if I change anything in php.ini file (cos I really need to), and then quit/restart Usbwebserver IT ALWAYS REWRITES PHP.INI FILE TO ITS INITIAL STATE AS IT WAS BEFORE, so all my changes are lost/overwritten - is it bug or what? It is really annoying to have all the time reconfiguring the php.ini file (I did try to set php.ini as READ ONLY but it didnt help as it complains about error and Usbwebserver doesn't start at all then!)

@Marshall - Just how is it a fake? Please enlighten us as to how a portable application from one of the most trusted portable sites is a fake. You obviously do not understand what portable apps does.


Marshall 2011-05-22 10:57 is a fake .... see source code of this portable.... only start xampp

Just found that Apache won't start if Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package is not installed (using non-English WinXP SP3)

bams: that's very specific to the software -- you probably want to contact the author
