Not sure where the php.ini file is as I don't have one currently nor do I see one in my back-up files. I did run through the install and it through out a bunch of errors. They seem to be roughly the same error, duplicate entry. Here are the first couple:
Step 3: MySQL error reported: [INSERT INTO pp_categories (id,catname,description,catorder,thumbs,parent,children) VALUES (500,'Member Galleries','Individual user galleries - any photo category',1,'yes',0,'')]
Result: Duplicate entry '500' for key 1
Step 3: MySQL error reported: [INSERT INTO pp_settings VALUES (1,'Title for your PhotoPost Application','galleryname','','My Photo Gallery',1,1)]
Result: Duplicate entry '1' for key 1
Any ideas? And I really do appreciate the help.
