    Linux find command help

    I am trying to find "php.ini". So I do the command:

    Code:
    find / "php.ini" 2>/dev/null
    It is giving me thousands of files that do not contain "php.ini". What am I doing wrong?

    Run the command:
    Code:
    php --ini
    This will output the information you want/need plus a number of additional ini files. The good news is the file you want is at the top of the output as shown in my Ubuntu 16.04 below which shows the first two lines of output of the command. . Yours of course, may be different.

    Code:
    Configuration File (php.ini) Path: /etc/php/7.0/cli
    Loaded Configuration File:         /etc/php/7.0/cli/php.ini

    Hi COKEDUDE.

    Try this:
    Code:
    find / -name "php.ini"
