I don't know why you would need to do this in the PHP installation. I just create a globals.php file (call it what you like) that contains all of my multi-script variables. Then I include the file into each script as needed. The file contains CSS pointers, database functions, and anything else I might find useful in any new script I might write. Changes I make to the file take place globally over all scripts on my account.

I want to define a variable that I can reference on ALL of my PHP pages. Ideally, I'd like to do it in php.ini or some similar place so that I can modify it as I place code on different systems, but not need to make changes in lots of different places. I looked at the Configuration section of the manual, did web searches, tried getenv() and using the OS environment (we're mixed Windows and UNIX boxes, using Apache and mysql and PHP 4.1.1), and had zero luck. I was hoping that getenv() or _ENV would have worked. I tried creating something in php.ini by simply adding a line, with no luck. Is there some way of doing this?
