Hey guys... I have a lil problem to get the blog up... well the thing is that when i use phpmyadmin to create a database.. the page has this message on it "The mbstring PHP extension was not found and you seem to be using multibyte charset. Without mbstring extension phpMyAdmin is unable to split strings correctly and it may result in unexpected results."
So I put the extensions directory in C:\PHP... and php_mbstring.dll is in there.... I put ;extension_dir = "c:\php\extensions\"
;extension=php_mbstring.dll in C:\windows\php.ini file... and the extension still doesnt load.. is there a certain way im stupposed to put that in... am i making a mistake?.... please help.....

Apache 2.0.53
Php 4.3.1
MySQL 4.1.1

I think the semicolon is the comment character in php.ini so the line would be commented out if it starts with a ;

Did you restart apache so the new dll would be loaded? Does mbstring show up if you do a phpinfo request?

<?php phpinfo(); ?>
