What would you like to do?
ConfigurePHP recursively searches all directories below its own position for php files. If a directory with at least one php file is found, a symlink to ./php.ini will be created.

Found this script years ago on the 1und1 forum. It was a nice workaround to make sure that the php.ini file would work inside root and all directories below it.
