How to Enable MBString on a PHP Installation in IIS7
Posted on 2013-12-03
I am attempting to run an application that was created for me in PHP. When I navigate to the application page, I get the following error:
The PHP must have the mbstring extension enabled. Please contact technical support.
I understand from reading around that mbstring is not enabled by default. So I went back into the php.ini file and removed the ";" before each line that referred to an mbstring variable. I restarted the IIS server, but when I run a phpinfo page, I see no reference to mbstring so I am wondering whether or not mbstring is actually enabled.
Could someone provide further guidance to a very new PHP user?
Thank you in advance.
