Problem with Rar functions in PHP

Postby JamesB » 28. July 2009 07:58


Wondering if anyone can help, i'm trying to get the Rar functions working with PHP. (

When i run the following code:

Code: Select all
$file = "test.rar";
$handle = rar_open($file);

I get this message:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function rar_open() in C:\xampp2\htdocs\rartest\index.php on line 4

Then I added the following line to my php.ini file located at 'C:\xampp2\php\php.ini '
Code: Select all

After restarting Xampp and refreshing my browser, I now get a Windows message saying:
Apache HTTP Server has stopped working

Here's some settings from phpinfo()
Code: Select all
PHP Version 5.2.9

Configuration File (php.ini) Path                  C:\Windows
Loaded Configuration File                          C:\xampp2\php\php.ini


Rar support                                            enabled
Extension version                                      1.0.1-dev
Revision                                               $Revision: 1.24 $
UnRAR version                                          3.71 beta 1

Any help will be really appreciated.

Thanks, James.
