The first section of the phpinfo() shows
Configuration File (php.ini) Path C:\WINDOWS

And this is from the C:\Windows\php.ini and points to the correct
extension path
; Directory in which the loadable extensions (modules) reside.
extension_dir = "C:\PHP\ext\"

I don't have an interbase section in the output of phpinfo(). The
fact that I can run phpinfo() verifies that Apache and PHP are
installed Ok. What else can it be. I've verified that
C:\PHP\ext\php_interbase.dll exists. Is there a way to test the
validity of that DLL?
