hosting company (I upgraded to a better package). Unfortunately one of
my WordPress plugins now complains about the absence of multibyte string
support in PHP on the new server.
What I don't understand is that phpinfo on that server
shows the three important configuration settings were enabled, viz.
'--enable-mbstring=shared' '--enable-mbstr-enc-trans' '--enable-mbregex'
However, I think there should also be be a separate section in the
phpinfo page relating specifically to the multibyte strings module, as
for instance on
I'm guessing there must be some runtime settings that need to be used,
perhaps in php.ini. Any ideas?
I can't see anything here: http://uk.php.net/mbstring
but I'm not that familiar with PHP.
Re: multibyte string support
The difference could quite possibly be caused by the fact that those 2
phpinfo pages are for different major versions of php (4 and 5). The fact
that the previous 1 has the configuration settings shows that that php did
in fact get compiled with support for that functionality.
