By default on Unix it should be in /usr/local/lib which is <install-path>/lib. Most people will want to change this at compile-time with the –with-config-file-path flag. You would, for example, set it with something like:

--with-config-file-path=/etc

And then you would copy >php.ini-development from the distribution to /etc/php.ini and edit it to make any local changes you want.

--with-config-file-scan-dir=PATH

On Windows the default path for the php.ini file is the Windows directory. If you're using the Apache webserver, php.ini is first searched in the Apaches install directory, e.g. c:\program files\apache group\apache. This way you can have different php.ini files for different versions of Apache on the same machine.
