[solved] I need mbstring.dll
Posted 19 October 2006 - 12:17 PM
On my WinXP system running IIS and PHP and PHPAdmin and Mysql:
I get a warning '...unable to load dynamic library php_mbstring.dll...'
I find it with 'Search' and it shows it as being in the directory 'ext' - which apparently isn't a directory at all but signifies an 'application extension'.
How do I help php out and give it access to this library?

Ah... I would if I could...
I didn't make it clear - the directory 'ext' not being a real directory I can't actually find the file. I don't know where it is. I don't know what it means that it is - that 'ext' is - 'an application extension'.
Where do I find 'an application extension' ? How do I open it to get a .dll out?
I should have said it that way the first time round.
and, p.s., I didn't specify anything in php.ini and the default seems to be '.\' or something.

No it wouldn't be. That's the whole point. It is not a real directory. It can't be found.
But I've found it. When I searched for 'ext' instead of searching for 'mbstring' I got a better clue - 'search' told me it was inside a .zip file.
Actually a corrupt zip file that is supposed to be php516winzip but I can't use because it always reports 'unexpected end of file' when I try to install from it. That's how come the installation I've got doesn't include the ext directory.
But, surprisingly enough, I was able to extract the 'ext' directory from it. Winzip did that for me without any problem.
Then I put the mbstring.dll into php root dir and now everything's fine.
Thanks for your input and have a good day...
