http://serverfault.com – I'm running Kloxo at the moment and have updated phpMyAdmin to the latest version as well as php and mysql, however, phpMyAdmin seems to complain about mbstring not being installed, eventhough it is. What is wrong here and how do I fix it? The error fromm phpMyAdmin (version 3.4.10) 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. php-mbstring is installed. [root@237266 modules]# yum list installed | grep mbstring php-mbstring.i386 (HowTos)
