Configuration File (php.ini) Path /usr/local/etc
Loaded Configuration File /php.ini
So it _IS_ looking in /usr/local/etc/ for a php.ini file, it just can't find it.
Move the file back to /usr/local/etc/, then make sure the permissions
are correct (so the www-data user can read) on both the php.ini file
and the directories above it.
