Type "locate php.ini"
Open the file it finds in whatever text editor you like most
Change the line as your instructions say
Save
(You _might_ have to restart apache:
PROBABLY
/etc/init.d/apache restart
OR
/etc/init.d/httpd restart)

You _do_ need to restart apache usually, type "apachectl restart"

If it can't find it, then do "locate apachectl"
change into the directory which has that in and type
"./apachectl restart"

Let us know how you get on!

If you are using PHP as CGI then I don't believe Apache needs restarting, only if you are using it as a module. (Of course the odds are fairly heavily in favour of it being a module as this is much more efficient)
