It isn't there.

You need to create a php.ini file yourself and place it within the lists and possibly the lists/admin directories.

Depending on your hosts settings, it'll work or it won't. You may need to check if your host actually allow you to create such a file, some don't, whereas others have it as an option on your server admin control panel.
