Mattias Geniar's Blog:
php_value vs php_admin_value and the use of php_flag explained
February 22, 2012 @ 12:14:22

In this quick post to his blog Mattias Geniar looks at three different Apache flags you can use in your configuration/.htaccess files to set various things in your PHP environment.

Back in 2009 there was a bug in the php_admin_value implementation before PHP 5.2.6. Since then, everything should run smoothly again. However, I find there's still a lot of confusion on when to use php_value, php_admin_value, php_flag and php_admin_flag. So I'll see if we can clear some of that.

He compares the three php_* flags you can use to set different kinds of values - "php_flag" for boolean operations, "php_admin_flag" (similar, but only in the vhost config) and the "php_value" that can be used for everything else, including overriding some settings in your php.ini.
