Hello there,

Can someone please kindly tell me where i can download precomiled windows PHP extensions for Mahara as stated as required by the installation instructions.

Missing PHP extensions: json, libxml, simplexml, session, zip, and zlib.

(Have downloaded latest windows build of PHP)

I can find the source code, however source code is of no use to me.

Thanks in advance!!!

Try XAMPP (http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp-windows.html) - works for me.

Regards,
Gregor

Hello Johnny,

You do not need to download extensions separately, you should be prompted to choose extenstions during PHP installation. Use msi installer and tick off those extenstion you need to have on "Chose items to install" screen.

Thank you...

However neither one contained the PHP extensions that mahara requires.

I am still missing the PHP extensions: json, libxml, simplexml, session, zip, and zlib.

Sorry, I did not pay much attention to the list initially. These are the core components of php that are embedded in php and enabled by default (especially in its Windows version).

For example see what is said in the manual:

http://uk3.php.net/manual/en/json.installation.php

http://www.php.net/manual/en/libxml.installation.php
