WAMP Server

Hello! I can't get the newly installed WAMP to work correctly on the server I'm working on. I have disabled IIS, but can't get wampapache service to start. When I run the following command, I get an error that says it can't locate php_mbstring.dll.


Any ideas what might be wrong?

It must be because php_mbstring.dll is not present on your system. Locate your php.ini file in php folder and look for the string: extension=php_mbstring.dll. Temporarily disable this extension by adding a semi-colon ";" at the start of the line. So your line should look like:


You can also download the php_mbstring.dll file and put it in php/ext folder to resolve this issue.  php-mbstring.dll
Maybe try XAMPP instead - works like a charm for me?

Thanks for your time, but unfortunately it's not my server. I don't have permission to use anything but WAMP.

Thanks again!

Hi, Shaunak.

I commented out the line but the service still won't start. It's funny, too, because the file was already in the ext folder.

The error I am getting when I try to start the service is Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly. Any idea what that might be? I'll start a new question.
