Need explaination of custom ini files

Hello All,

I have an account on a hosted (windows) server. I was told that I
could create a custom ini file and load it to my root folder. The
php.ini would then inherit to all subfolders of the root folder. I did
that and got a 400 Bad Request --Malformed headers error message. I
moved the php.ini folder to the subfolder that contained the php
scripts and I didn't get an error, but when I ran phpinfo(); I saw
that it was still pointing to the ini file on the server and not the
one in my folder.

Can somebody explain this to me?

With most hosts you only add items to your custom php.ini that you
need to change, don't upload a whole php.ini - so if you wanted to set
register_globals = On, the that would be the only line in your php.ini
file.  This way you don't mess with the basic config on the server,
you only tweak the items you need changed.
