I am looking for php.ini and its CENTOS but I couldn't seem to find it. Is it any command in linux that will tell you where the file is located at. I thought grep could do it, but really don't know the syntax for that

just do :
locate php.ini

if it doesn't find anything you could try to do:
updatedb

then redo:
locate php.ini

In CentOS  it's normally   /etc/php/php.ini


rpm -ql php    <-- to see a list of files that the PHP package installed
i.e.  rpm -ql php |fgrep php.ini

find / -xdev -name php.ini

To search the root filesystem for php.ini

Err..   it's normally  /etc/php.ini

On CentOS PHP packages there is also a  /etc/php.d  directory
that contains INI files for extension modules that might be installed

I.E.

[root@cacti-3 ~]# ls /etc/php.d
imap.ini  ldap.ini  mysql.ini  odbc.ini  pgsql.ini  rrdtool.ini  snmp.ini

The grep syntax you were referring to is:

find / | grep php.ini
