You should check the output of  phpinfo();   to see if something like register_globals is turned on or off rather than the php.ini file itself. You might have multiple copies or your only copy might be in the incorrect directory which makes it unreliable. On the same page you will also find (towards the TOP) the location of the  php.ini file your PHP installation is reading when it's initialized.
