I am receiving this error in apache error log during httpd restart process.

PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib64/php/modules/php_mbstring.dll' - /usr/lib64/php/modules/php_mbstring.dll: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory in Unknown on line 0

I already installed php_mbstring previously

yum install php-mbstring

Package php-mbstring-5.3.10-1.15.amzn1.x86_64 already installed and latest version

In the /usr/lib64/php/modules/ I don't see php_mbstring.dll


Dlls (Dynamic Loadable Library) is being used only in Windows. For Linux (and BSD and probably most of unix-like OS'es) you have .so (shared object) instead. You probably need to change .dll to .so in php.ini or one of files included in it (it may be something like /etc/php.d/mbstring.ini or something similar).

Also, you can find path of .so file by running rpm -ql php-mbstring - it will list all files belonging to package.
