PHP The php.ini File

my path is C:\WINDOWS and there's no php.ini file there

when I start the video and run the script I get the info page. It tells me "Configuration File (php.ini) Path -- C:\WINDOWS" but when I run my CMD and try to run C:\WINDOWS\php.ini it says 'The system cannot find the path specified.'

I have the exact same problem. The instructor used Mac in this tutorial. It would be nice to get an answer here for us Windows users :)

You can either use windows explorer search and search for the php.ini file.

If you are using something like WAMP, XAMP, or in my case Laragon, you might find the php.ini file is within the respective applications sub folders.

For example, using Laragon, my php.ini file is located at C:\laragon\bin\php\php-7.1.1-Win32-VC14-x86\php.ini

It will be located in the same place as your PHP.exe which is unlikely to be in c:\windows try c:\php or wherever you installed PHP to.
