php_admin_* is supposed to make any such option unusable by anybody in
any script. And it's meant for hosting companies..

By the way Bug #43378 mentions the same issue but calls it a
"Documentation problem". In my opinion this is a bug.

<quote>
When I set a value inside the httpd.conf with php_admin_value or
php_admin_flag that is INI_ALL or INI_PERDIR it can be overwritten at
runtime using ini_set()

I don't think this should be possible. But the documentation on this
problem doesn't assure me if this is a bug or a feature!

Unfortunately, his question was neither discussed nor answered. Also I
disagree that is should not be possible re-setting the value of a
INI_ALL configuration directive with ini_set().

According to http://www.php.net/manual/en/ini.php PHP_INI_ALL means
"Entry can be set anywhere". In my opinion this mutually includes "Entry
can be changed anywhere".

Currently setting e.g. the include_path using ini_set('include_path',
..) or set_include_path(..) will fail when there is a php_admin_value
include_path directive in the apache configuration. The include_path is
a PHP_INI_ALL directive.



Reproduce code:
---------------
Set in apaches https.conf

php_admin_value include_path .:/usr/share/php:/server/wide/libs/


and the run

if (!set_include_path(get_include_path().PATH_SEPARATOR.'local/libs/'))
{
echo 'set_include_path() failed';
} else {
echo get_include_path();
}


Expected result:
----------------
.:/usr/share/php:/server/wide/libs/:local/libs/

Actual result:
--------------
set_include_path() failed
