Hi guys,

I've got an issue that's probably really simple.

I'm looking to install a few PHP extensions, namingly: PDO, Curl, Deflate, gd, memchace, and mbstring.

I've figured out where to download a whole bunch of files zipped up, but I thought you needed a .dll to add it to your PHP extensions in WAMP?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I'm not a Windows or Wamp user, but I'm certain all (excepting PECL) extension are packaged with the Windows PHP packages. All you need to do is uncomment them out in your ini file.

Hmm, I found and uncommented the lines for PDO and Curl, and I guess gd2 was already uncommented.
However when I restarted WAMP, I got error messages saying it couldn't locate the .dll files :/

Is there a place I can download .dll files for different extensions, or convert the large folders full of different files into dll's? Sorry I know this is probably a super noobie question :P

Have you looked in your extensions directory to see what you already have available?

I don't use Wamp either, but you should be able to do this through the Wamp control panel. Left-click the Wamp icon in your system-tray area.
