Coral 8.7.0 Breaks mbstring


Recommended Posts

Just upgraded from 8.6.6 to 8.7.0 and mbstring doesn't work. Says it's loaded ok in phpinfo, but i get this php error on first mbstring call.


Same apache and php configs as 8.6.6, haven't changed anything.


[Mon Dec 03 16:48:18.802288 2012] [:error] [pid 3068:tid 344] [client 192.168.x.x:51919] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_internal_encoding() in C:\\UniServer\\www\\xxx\\include\\functions.php on line 17, referer: https://xxx.yyy.com/index.php


Thanks for your help!!


I love Uniform Server!

just replaced the php directory with 8.6.6 and it works, must be something in the php directory...


same config file in both cases...


I ran the following simple test script:

/* Set internal character encoding to UTF-8 */

/* Display current internal character encoding */
echo mb_internal_encoding();


Correctly displays "UTF-8" on a default installation of 8.7.0



Replacing the PHP folder (from 8.6.6) although in your case resolves the problem it is masking the real issue because the PHP core is downgraded to 5.4.7



Perform the following:

Extract a new copy of 8.7.0

Switch PHP to use development ini

Start servers

Run the above script


Check errors reported and the Apache error log this may shed some light on the real problem.


All the best
