Default Re: A Guide to Installing Apache, PHP, MySQL, and PHPMyAdmin on Windows

Hey there, firstly many thanks for the guide, followed it step by step, great stuff.

I got an error message in phpMYadmin and took me a while to figure but thought i would share just in case you missed a step or setup has changed since the guide was made.

Error was: The mbstring PHP extension was not found and you seem to be using a multibyte charset. Without the mbstring extension phpMyAdmin is unable to split strings correctly and it may result in unexpected results.

Solution was: Navigate to C:\WEB\PHP. Open php.ini with a text editor.

Find: ;extension=php_mbstring.dll

Remove the ; from the beginning.

Once again many thanks for the guide, really helpful to dip into background of the programs a bit to learn how they work, rather than once click installs etc. (what do i do now??haha)
