Two different files here...

1) the php.ini file is NOT located in your Joomla files.  That file actually resides on your server.  

To tell you exactly where that file is, would be difficult, but it resides in a folder structure similar to this: C:\PHP\php.ini

2) The configuration.php is your main file for configuring the Joomla site and resides in the root of your joomla site...

What server are you running your websites off of?  Is this local?  If you can tell me the exact platform you use to run your sites off of I could tell you where to look.

Nukit, I'm running XAMPP latest version on my local windows machine. I just did a backup of my joomla website and have restored it using the Joomla Akeeba Backup software called Kickstart. Kickstart is telling me I need to find the php.ini file to change the following code to prevent errors when I test my site locally. Do you know where I can find this php.ini file? Thanks.

Yes, you can find that file here:

C:\xampp\php\php.ini

Then just do a search within the php.ini file for what you need.

Make sure you restart xampp after making changes to your php file as this will make those changes take place on your web server.
