Hi experts,

What settings do i need to do to my windows machine or to apache to run php scripts that open large files? It doesn't work with files larger than 11MB (500k lines). I have apache2triad installed. I searched for php.ini but couldn't find it, searched in all files from apache2triad folder for memory limit but no result seemed to match the problem. Where is php config?

    Whats the error message you are getting?
    php.ini must be somewhere
    What did you use to install apache/php?

    apache2triad has stopped being a supported product since 2006!

    Since 2006 Apache2Triad is no longer being developed, there are many reasons behind this but the breaking changes to windows starting with XP have played a significant part, the forums and everything else will remain online.

    Since then i have stopped using windows entirely and switched to OSX, the operating system on Mac's that comes with apache, php, perl, python etc. already built in and updated automatically from Apple, needless to say i never looked back once.

    You should update apache and every item of it. ie. php/mysql/sqlite etc.
