Hi

I have a question, in my server were generated these symlink

icudt51.dll
icuin51.dll
icuio51.dll
icule51.dll
iculx51.dll
icutest51.dll
icutu51.dll
icuuc51.dll
libeay32.dll
libsasl.dll
libintl.dll
php.ini
php5ts.dll
ssleay32.dll

This is normal.

At what point are these symlink files generated in wamp 2.5?

Hi,

It is completely "normal" that these symbolic links exist. This is the very basis of the PHP version changes.
A symbolic link avoids copying files.

What is the problem ?

Thank you
What happens is that when you click on wampmanager - apache - version 2.4.9 these symlinks are generated and the php.ini is reset, losing the configuration

When I click on it it generates that list of symlinks that is what it does or that they serve when I click there?

For more information follow the steps given in this answer

Hi,

The php.ini file to be modified is that opened by
Left-click Wampmanager tray icon -> PHP -> php.ini

> these symlinks are generated and the php.ini is reset, losing the configuration
If you lose the configuration, it simply means that you have modified the "wrong" file by hand.

The properties of the "file" c:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.4.9\bin\php.ini is:
Link -> Symbolic link to
c:/wamp/bin/php/php5.x.y/phpForApache.ini
that is verified par a command dir /al in folfder c:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.4.9\bin\
<SYMLINK> php.ini [J:/wamp/bin/php/php5.x.y/phpForApache.ini]

So if you open the file by
Left-click Wampmanager tray icon -> PHP -> php.ini
you can see "php.ini" in the text editor, but it is the file phpForApache.ini that is actually open.
